This past week we’ve been rebuilding a Perkins A6.354 engine from a Massey Ferguson 3080.

Awesome Security

Following the recent tractor security article, we've had an email from a remote landowner who has taken the following security steps for his tractor... Tractor in a steel building. Deadbolt on the regular door. Padlock on the garage door tracks. Logging chain through the tractor rear wheels and then through the attached implement with padlock. Security camera system.

Massey Ferguson 135 Turbo

Vintage Tractor Engineer often finds himself spending far too much time viewing tractor videos on YouTube.

Today we saw this one of a MF135 that has had a turbocharger fitted, and had to share it.  The tractor certainly seems to accelerate faster than a standard 135.  Another great example of tractor enthusiasts getting up to no […]
