MF 420 4WD
Hello Friends :-)!

Last Sunday I was in South Germany on a little Tractor Show.
I drove the new MF 420 4WD. I was more than happy about it

A very nice compact Fergie ;-), well to drive, easy to
handle, quiet cheap to buy:-P! I would like to get one, even
without 4WD and turbocharger, the MF 410 is enough for me

Ooops :-\!

That's me on the tractor, the first one is a friend of mine,
who also likes it ;-).

Even the 410 has wet disc brakes but even though there are
epicyclic reduction hub housings, if you look carefully the
ring gear is abscent so it contains no reduction gears. The
bigger models have more-or-less the same axle that MF have
used for many years and is very heavy-duty for this size of
In the UK the 410 has the 8x2 gearbox while the others have
a choice including 8x8 shuttle.

I have heard rumours that some countries will only take this
tractor when it has a proper cab available. Certainly in
cold and wet UK there is only a limited market for cabless
tractors these days.

Hello Huw :-)!

Nice to hear from someone who also knows this tractor;-).
Alright, the rear axle with wet disc brakes is a little bit
heavy for such a size of tractor with 55 hp-ISO. But without
the old dry drum brakes you can be sure that it is a good

I also know the problem with the open platform and the
missing cab:-\. Last saturday we were in high land of South
Germany near the city of Ulm, 700 meter above sea level,
windy and cold:-(. The MF dealer of the small village told
us that he could sell many of them - but only with a cab!

My hope: AGCO will read our words and they will give an
order to Uzel to develop one:-[. An air condition is not so
important, if you can open the wind screen.

Cab model will be available in UK in Autumn.
Re: MF 420 4WD
Hi Franz, Whooshka and everyone :-)

There will be an article in British 'Classic Tractor'
magazine next month where the 410 is compared to a 135. They
are really heavy duty little beauties and excellent value

A weather cab of some kind is available now for these
tractors from Walter Mauser
