Massey Ferguson 290

Massey Ferguson 290The Massey Ferguson 290 is a two-wheel (4×2 2WD) tractor or four-wheel (4×4 MFWD 4WD), manufactured by Massey Ferguson from 1983 to 1986. The Massey Ferguson 290 tractor is equipped with four-cylinder Perkins A4.248 (4.1 L) diesel engine and two transmission options: manual 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 MF 290 tractor used a four-cylinder naturally-aspirated liquid-cooled diesel engine Perkins A4.248, with 101.0 mm (3.97 in) of the cylinder bore and 127 mm (5 in) of the piston stroke. Compression ratio rating is 16.0:1. This engine produced 67 PS (49.2 kW; 66 HP) of output power on PTO-shaft and 81 PS (59.7 kW; 80 HP) of maximum gross power. 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 290 used hydrostatic power-assisted steering, differential lock operated by foot-pedal and differential hydraulic wet discs brake. The MF 2290 used open operator station, a two-post rollover protection structure (ROPS) or cabin ware available as an option.
