1. Farmers, growers, processors and industry representatives are being asked for their views from 31 August for 10 weeks on the role of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).

    The AHDB is a UK statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain. As we leave the EU, there is an opportunity to ensure that the sectors that the AHDB covers are as competitive as possible. This review will look at the AHDB’s purpose and priorities, its strengths and where improvements need to be made.

    This is a joint 10-week exercise covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The request for views will close on 9 November.

    Can anyone let me know what defines a 35x from a normal 35? as I remember something to do with the clutch
    my 35 when the clutch is depressed halfway will stop the loader lifting....anyway what do I know, would just like
    to know some history on the tractor as I hope to get it restored soon. thanks in advance

    Nothing to do with the clutch at all
    35x has a different engine
    Also heavier hydraulic top cover

    Post a picture of dynamo mounting bracket on the engine it’s the easiest way to tell! Do you have the serial number?

    Ta. I will get a serial number, and it has been converted to an alternator, so the brackets would have been changed i guess, Just to chuck in the mix, was the Delux model the one with a dual clutch?

    35X was only 3-cylinder so yours would be MF-35 De Luxe.

    (4-cylinder has exhaust on right-hand side when sat in driving seat).

    35x were all three cylinder.

    When I was a lad in the 60's everyone seemed to be buying brand new tractors. I wonder if anyone has any info on the number of tractors sold in the 60's compared to say the last decade, and how the total HP traded compares? For example a big arable operation bought 30 tractors 40hp-75hp in a year back then, now they might buy 1 x 250hp

    Good point, never really thought about that, I guess a modern 150hp + tractor can cover the ground of 4 small ones
    So surely they can't be selling so many units.

    Can't exactly remember the figures but I think it was somewhere near 1/2 million tractors in the post horse era and been falling ever since.
