Just received the long awaited MF 35 hydraulics DVD today – very much worth the wait – congratulations on an excellent production! J O, Inverclyde.
A really excellent DVD I watched it last night and it will be extremely helpful. E C, Co. Cork, Ireland.
First job is to get one of those brackets made so I can remove the top cover on my own. Good troubleshooting section – think I’ve diagnosed my problem and can’t wait to get started on the strip-down of my TO35. Chuck Harrison, USA.
It is fantastic. My son and I now believe that we can take our tractor Hydraulics apart and put it back together again! Dr Lloyd V, Guyana.
MF35 Hydraulics dvd…EXCEPTIONALLY well done! Thank you… Terry
I bought the video you made and it was very helpful. I could not have repaired my Massey Ferguson TO35 without it. Thank you. Aubrey T.
Perfect video. I have little or no hydraulics knowledge, but with the help of this DVD I managed to remove the pump and lift cylinder and partially strip the pump. I really didn’t have much hope that a DVD would help me with this repair, but I am 100 percent satisfied with my purchase !!! Graeme C, UK.
I received your DVD “How to repair hydraulic – mf 35” and it has been a tremendos help – Thanks. The tractor is now put together and the hydraulic works perfect thanks to your good instruction/video. Good filming, good light and working slow makes it to a video that I highly can recomend to anyone who has a MF 35. Erik, Sweden.
