    I have a Massey Ferguson 1533 year 2006 It's is overheating to a the max and past I replaced the Thermostat flush the sytem with water What else

    I know it's been a while since you posted and I hope you've got it straightened out. If not continue. From my experience your radiator is still dirty. You can do all the remedies and it will look clean in the outside and it still won't be. In the center of the fins that's very had to see...

    Massey Ferguson 135 hydraulic issue

    Hello there. I hope you have her tractor/loader working by now, if not continue. Sounds the me like you have quick connector that's not seated right. Connectors can look and feel like they are connected and still not let fluid through. On the lines going to the loader, disconnect them and...

    2001 AGCO ST35 Rear PTO

    There is a level that needs to be engaged first. I can't remember is it is to the left of and behind the seat or if it is back by the PTO shaft and to the left. That was about when they went from the seat location to the rear location. Anyway, that lever has to be engaged first. Then when you...

    Who really makes Challenger tractors?

    All the compacts are made for AGCO by Iseki in Japan. The utility size are made by AGCO but are Masseys. There are a few that have Cat engines in them for the Challenger line.

    Challenger Tractors

    The engines and the tractors are made by Iseki, not Yanmar. They are the same compact tractors as the Massey Ferguson and AGCO compacts. They are very good tractors. The reason that you don't see many is because AGCO doesn't seem to push them very much and the Cat dealer network doesn't have...

    Massey equivalent Agco

    The answer is both to some extent. Older dealers that have been Ag only, seem to have a very hard time accepting compact tractors. Given the sales volume that compacts have seen in the last few years it doesn't make much sense. Looks like they would be glad to pickup the extra sales, but some...

    Massey equivalent Agco

    AGCO in 2007

    Challenger by CAT

    Massey Ferguson is one of the largest Ag companies in the world. They are one of the big three in Ag equipment. They have never marketed compact tractors the way that they should have. The Challenger is the same tractors and Cat wouldn't be selling them if they weren't up to there level.

    The closer a manufacture goes in the direction of tapping more horsepower from a engine, the RPM will be turned up more. It most often is used when a few more hp is needed to market a new model. This is a larger cubic inch engine that can turn a slower RPM and still develop the hp currently...

    AGCO acquires Valtra Tractors

    They are very good tractors. I would place them as the number 2 tractor in the world right after Fendt. The good thing about AGCO acquiring Valtra is that they now have their own engines in house again. It was a bad day when Massey and Perkins was separated.

    Has AGCO or at least MF left Iseki for CUTS?

    The 1200's are being replace by the 1400 series in the Americas. The 1400's have Iseki all over them.

    Has AGCO or at least MF left Iseki for CUTS?

    Woodbeef, Iseki did have their cabs shown on their site. I was under the impression that it was the same cab that was sold in Europe. I could be wrong. I should look at the parts manual for the cab and see if it looks like the ones on the Iseki site. The MF 1250 ~ Iseki TK 532 and the MF 1260 ~...

    Challenger MT200 series

    As far as I know, the only Iseki's that are used by Cat are the compact tractors. That is because of their AGCO orgin.

    Any AGCO compact owners here?

    Like has been said, the MF, AGCO and Cat are almost the same. I just traded off a MF 1250 for a MF 1440. I need a few more hp. They are very good heavy duty compacts. Their prices was dropped as of February. At least the MF were. The AGCO ST35 is the MF 1433 and the AGCO ST40 is the MF 1440. The...

    Rear remotes?

    Does anyone here have factory remotes on their MF, AGCO or Cat compact? My dealer didn't plan ahead very well on the mounting of my remotes. If you do, could you post a picture of the coupler mount on the back of the tractor?

    Could someone please tell me how to fix a problem? The problem is on a new computer that I just bought. TBN and some other sites only use part of the screen. They take up all of the screen top to bottom, but only 1/2 to 2/3 of the screen right to left. There are a lot of sites that do use the...

    Yea, finely got started........

    They have finely got started putting my new MF 1440 together. This is the middle of hay season here and I thought that I would have to wait for a while longer to get it started. It may take a week or so to finish because of stopping to work on hay equipment.

    Looking for opinions on Challenger pricing........

    All of the newer ones have tilt hoods except the 55 hp. The regular ones now have pin adjustment for the 3 point, the value models have turnbuckles still. Massey, Agco and Cat all has both model, the standard and the value. There are several things that you give up to get the value models but...

    Like has been said, I think that cosmetics is the only thing different between the AGCO and MF. They are a very good compact. I am getting ready to buy another one. You might want to check with some more MF dealers because about two months ago, there was a price decrease.

    AGCO Warranties

    I would like to know how Agco/Massey/etc. stands behind their warranties. Has anyone had a major problem that the Corporate boys have been involved in? If you have, how did they handle it? Do you think that they handled it the way they should have?

    Danuser Post driver

    Saturday I tried out my, new to me, Danuser post driver. My father-in-law called and wanted me to help put in some posts around his bale pen. It works great even in our rocky soil. I don’t think that I will be using my post auger very much any more.

    John, The way I took it from the Corporate E-Mail was that the tractors will immediately be painted orange and labeled AGCO. It didn't say it in so many words, but it was inferred.

    Muhammad, We could use more space in the members profile area for attachments. I have typed them in and also pasted them in and they always get cut off. A larger text window would be nice. Could this be changed without to much of a problem? Thanks JerryG
