game over now:-\.

But it was great. It is not often to see (and to hear) in Germany, it is a very rare tractor here.

Re: big beast running
Franz,

Nice pictures, but this tractor doesn't got a 150 HP, but a 135 Hp. It's got a Perkins AV8.510 Engine. The bore/Stroke is 10.7/11.2 cm, and a capacity of 8256 cc.

Re: big beast running
Hello Patrick:-)!

Is it right that I will give you better information;-)? The new owner of the MF 1150 said the beast has 135 hp on the PTO and 150 hp on the engine, right?

It is not usually in Germany to tell the PTO-horse powers. But since this summer MF writes always the PTO-horse powers together with the other numbers into the German brochures.

In North America the very most time they talk about the PTO-horse powers. This is better because there is always a loss of performance in the transmission between the engine and the PTO shaft.

And the engine for itself needs much power for example for the cooling. These lost horse powers are not calculated in the ISO-hp, but in the DIN-hp. The engine of the MF 8480 for example needs 25 hp only for the cooling fan at 2000 rpm!

Please look into the internet into the German brochures and watch the numbers of the performance. You will see differences.

Re: big beast running
Franz,

You're right about the horsepowers, I was looking in an book of mine, what got a lot of technical data of the 100 and 1000 serie's, and I just saw that they were talking about PTO HP, sorry for that.
And about the MF 8480, maximum horsepower is about 315 HP at 2000rpm, but got a 240 HP on the PTO, so it's using a lot to keep the tractor running with the vario transmission.

Re: big beast running
Hello Patrick:-)!

Is the book you mean from John Farnworth? Is it written in English language? I've god such a book with many informations about the same ranges including the articulated tractors and the Landini type crawlers. A good book for all Fergie-Friends;-). But I have around twenty books for Massey Ferguson:-D, but only two of them are written in German:-[.

Re: big beast running
Franz,

Yeah that's right, the book is called: A world-wide guide to massey ferguson 100 and 1000 tractors 1964-1988
I also got an other book of MF about how it all started. That book is called: Massey Ferguson Tractors, written by Micheal Williams
