eoin 156305 80 massey ferguson 430 either
massey ferguson 430
for many years i've had a big intrest on massey ferguson
machines could you tell me is this 430 model rare and is
that cab standard equipment someone told me that that cab is
also available on the 15 combine???. is there such a model.
Re: massey ferguson 430
I think this is a combine Massey had rebadged for them from
Sampo Rosenlew in Finland about the time they started
selling Danish Dronningborg combines in the 80's after
closing their last Euro combine plant in France I think.
Re: massey ferguson 430
Hi Eoin!:-)

I ansewered you on the other photo, the MF 20. The 430 and
the 20 are basically the same machine, the 430 was produced
from -82 to -85, and the 20 from -85 to -90. I guess looking
at them the biggest difference is the cabin, they also had
some difference in the sieves etc. And to answer your
question yes the cab was standard, at least in the later
models. The same cab was also available for the 16 model
combine, I dont think there has been an MF combine called
15. As Redpainter said, these are rebadged Sampo Rosenlew
models, and have siblings in their lineup. Earlier you
posted a photo of an MF 19, the 16 is it's predecessor, the
19 has a stronger engine, wider header, hydro etc. Thare is
also this model 17 which is prettty close to the 19 without
a hydro and with a narrower header. Hope this answer your
questions:-) BTW: Redpainter, would you happen to have any
info on that 507 model combine?

Re: massey ferguson 430
Agricult, sorry I don't have any info. Most of what I know
is from what I've seen on machinery boards here or reading
British machinery journals at local university years back. I
have no detailed information. I remember there was a used
machinery site that had pics of alot of Sampo combines. It
may have been a site from Finland or Scandanavia. Wish I had
saved it.
Re: massey ferguson 430
Hi Redpainter

Thank you anyway:-) No wonder you have no info on this
model, from what I've gathered it's an extremely rare
combine. Still, I have some pictures of 507's. I'll try to
post them very soon, hope to get my hands on one some day:-D

regards, agricult
Re: massey ferguson 430
Does anyone know where to find this combination in dismantling?
