"I bought this used tractor from a small buyer/seller here in Texas. It had 312 hours on the meter. Everything was in great condition. It has a Bush Hog brand FEL with 1200 lb lift capacity. 4 speeds with hi & low range, 2 wheel drive, 56 hp Perkins diesel engine. Very satisfied with the machine. Only concern is that the FEL raise and lower speed seems a little slow.
Very good machine with lots of power within a small footprint. The FEL has quick detach hookup for the bucket. I am somewhat concerned about parts availability and the number of dealers that handle Massey Ferguson."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Lots of machine within a small footprint.Cons: Concerned about parts availability.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA TXI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
Delphi Injection Pump Failure After Only 100 Hours on New Tractor
Model year: 2006Date Purchased: 2006-10-10Number of Hours: 105
"I was happy with this tractor until the Delphi injection pump failed after only 100 hours and 4 years use. Tractor is stored in heated garage.
Delphi refused to consider repair under warranty. My dealer got Massey Ferguson to cover it. A new Delphi pump was $2700. Pump was repaired and Massey paid for all repair. Yes, it was out of warranty but I expected more than 100 hrs.
Tractor has lots of power and I would buy Massey Ferguson again but would want a Bosch injection pump."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Far more powerful engine than most small utility tractors.Cons: I worry about the reliability of Delphi pump since their poor warranty.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA MII also considered buying: Farmtrac 45, Mahindra 3215 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
