rare MF 35
This weekend I came acroos this photo of a rare MF 35 tractor. As can be seen it is a "stilt" tractor. It was made in very small numbers by the Lenfield Engineering company who also earlier made a narrow version of the grey Ferguson tractor
This tractor was called the Lenfield MF 135 Flamingo Conversion and was designed for use in blackurrants. It had a ground clearance of 4 ft 6 in and wheel width adjustment of 70-90 in.
I have seen odd conversions such as this on grey Fergusons in N America. There is currently one sitting in a yard in Ontario which hasn't moved in a good number of years and another in collectors hands in the USA. These stilt tractors are interesting but difficult to carry around
I don't know if there is a surviving example in the UK.
