Massey Ferguson 265

Massey Ferguson 265The Massey Ferguson 265 is a two-wheel tractor, manufactured by Massey Ferguson from 1975 to 1983. The Massey Ferguson 265 tractor was available in three variants: standard, row-crop and low-profile.

The Massey Ferguson 265 tractor could be equipped with two engine options (diesel or gasoline) and two transmission options: gear type transmission with 8 forward and 2 reverse or Multi-Power transmission with 12 forward and 4 reverse (three speeds in two ranges plus two-speed power shift).

The following engines were available on the MF 265 tractor:

  • Perkins AG4.236 gasoline engine. The AG4.236 is a 3.87 l (236 cu.in.) four-cylinder naturally-aspirated liquid-cooled gasoline engine. Bore and stroke are 98.4 mm (3.87 in) and 127 mm (5 in), respectively. This motor produced 61 PS (44.7 KW; 60.0 HP) of output power on PTO-shaft.
  • Perkins A4.236 diesel engine. The A4.236 is a 3.87 l (236 cu.in.) four-cylinder naturally-aspirated liquid-cooled diesel engine. Bore and stroke are 98.4 mm (3.87 in) and 127 mm (5 in), respectively. Compression ratio rating is 16.0:1. The A4.236 engine produced 61 PS (44.7 KW; 60.0 HP) of output power on PTO-shaft and 248 Nm (25.3 kg·m; 183 ft·lb) at 1,300 rpm of peak torque. The engine used oil bath or dual dry element air cleaner with over-bonnet pre cleaner and single, high capacity fuel filter.

The Massey Ferguson 265 used manual or power-assisted steering, differential dry disc brakes, two-stage clutch, and differential lock operated by foot pedal. The Massey Ferguson 265 used open operator station, a two-post rollover protection structure (ROPS) or cabin was available as an option.
