The Massey Ferguson 135 was produced by the team at MF for 11 years from 1964 to 1975. Some people often get confused between the MF 35 and MF 135, when they really shouldn’t, the MF 135 first of all looks entirely different from the MF 35. It is a lot more ‘blocky’ than the 35. So if you can’t see a number just take a look at the shape. The first Massey Ferguson 135’s came with no cab or roll bar, but eventually MF added a cab to make it suitable for much harsher weather.
The only factory variant of the MF 135 is the 2135 which is an industrial tractor and is easily distinguishable because it is painted yellow and not the traditional red and grey.
Similar to the Massey Ferguson 35, the MF 135 came with one of four engines as standard:
- Perkins model, AD 3.152: 3 Cylinder, diesel with a power output of 45.5 hp
- Continental model, Z – 145: 4 Cylinder gasoline
- Perkins model, AG 3.152: 4 Cylinder, gasoline with a power output of 45.5 hp
- Continental model, Z – 134: 4 Cylinder gasoline with a power output of 39 hp
The MF 135 weighed in at 3,645 lbs (or 1653 kg for those of you in Europe) when built with the diesel engine, 3,565 lbs (or 1617 kg) when built with a Perkins gasoline engine and 3,810 lbs (or 1728 kg) when built with a Continental gasoline engine. Similar to the Massey Ferguson 35, it had a wheelbase of 6 ft (182 cm) but was slightly longer at 120.6 inches (306 cm).
The Massey Ferguson 135 maxed out at 15.1mph (or 24.3 kph) in it’s highest gear and could reach 7.3 mph (or 11.8 kph) in it’s highest reverse gear.
The gear system was standard with the the first models of the 135 with , but eventually they were revamped so that were three forward gears in high gear and three forward in low gear giving a total of 6 forward gear settings. While the reverse gear was also revamped so that it had one high and one low gear for reverse.
