The Massey Ferguson 135 ('MF 135) was introduced in 1964 as part of the Massey Ferguson 100 series of world wide tractors to replace the ageing Massey Ferguson 35 that was a updated Ferguson FE-35 design from the 1940s. It had a 37 hp (28 kW) Perkins or Continental engine.

Model historyEdit

The Massey Ferguson 100 series was introduced to be a world wide range to replace the former Massey-Harris and Ferguson tractors many of which were still based on pre-war designs. The basic design was still a development of the Ferguson design.

The Model was introduced in the USA first built at MF's Detroit plant. The UK version was built at Coventry and was designed around the Perkins 3-cylinder engine. The design also moved to a 12 speed gearbox.


For basic spec see the table.

135 438 266 Serial / production numbersEdit

  • Add serial number data table here

The production of the new tractor was nearly 13,000 from the Detroit factory in 1965. With 44,246 built in 1966 from both factories.[1]


These are a popular model as there were loads built and many people remember owning or operating them when they were younger. There are also a number of 'special' variations available for the collector looking for more obscure tractors. Parts are readily available and they were better engineered than the early pre war models, and tidy examples can still be found in ex farm condition that is tired body work but mechanically still sound.
