The article offers tips on the maintenance of a Massey Ferguson 135 scraper tractor. The Massey Ferguson 135 is a popular choice for yard scraping duties and is often affectionately thought of as a dedicated old stalwart, seldom hitched to anything else. To ensure the electrics are all kept powered it is advised to check the tension on the dynamo belt. The clutch pedal should have an inch of free travel before the first stage bites. The air filter should be checked and cleaned regularly.
