The French built MF 835 model was a range of Massey-Ferguson 35 models initially built in France from UK-supplied parts by Societe Standard-Hothckiss a JV company set up by the Standard Motor Company of the UK and the Hotchkiss Company of France to build the tractors (in France) due to import restrictions on complete machines by the post war French government. The firm initially built kits up, but over a 3-year period were required to switch to totally French supplied or built parts. The French built MF 35 range included several models geared to the French market with Orchard and Vineyard versions. It had a 42 hp (31 kW) engine.
