MF 165 Tractor Rebuild within 24 Hours for Charity

On 13 June, students studying land based technology at Wiltshire College Lackham will strip down, overhaul and refurbish an MF 165 tractor within 24 hours for charity!

As a key sponsor, Massey Ferguson is donating parts from its 10+ range to complete the rebuild.

The tractor is being donated by the family of the late Flight Lieutenant Niel Cox of Henley-on Thames. He started farming in 1962 and the family has used MF tractors exclusively ever since.

The fully-refurbed machine will be auctioned at Cheffins Vintage Sale in Cambridge on 20 October. Niel Cox was a Spitfire pilot during the Second World War and the proceeds of the MF 165 sale are to go to the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund.

Massey Ferguson 10+ is range of parts for MF machines that have been out of production for at least ten years. An economic repair solution for older machines, it allows users to maintain these veterans at peak performance.
