Welcome to the NI Modding website. We are a small team consisting – alwyn, henly20, knut, peterj, rh and sam123. We enjoy making and releasing mods for Farming Simulator. Feel free to browse our site to see what we have released and what we currently have as Work in Progress (WIP)
We previously showed our MF 880 loader for the 300 series range. The 880 was part of the 800 series loader range which consisted of the 875, 880S, 880, 885E and 888. Massey Ferguson updated this range in the early nineties (circa 1993/4) with the new 800 series. The range was much more compact and featured the 810, 815, 820 and 825. The 820 loader essentially replaced the 880 and the main changes were the addition of the “euro” quick attach system as standard and slight changes to lift capacity.
This time we have chosen the baby in the range; the 810. It was designed for smaller tractors and is essentially the replacement for the 875 which in turn was the replacement for the original MF80 loader. The 810 is ideal for the 362 as shown in the brochure below.
As the 300 series fleet continues to grow, here’s a picture of what we have so far.
- 362 LoProfile+ 4wd
- 365 Footstep 2wd
- 375 LoProfile+ 4wd
- 390 LoProfile+ 2wd
390 Footstep 4wd
390T LoProfile+ 4wd
398 Hiline+ 4wd
399 Hiline+ 4wd
At the top of the 300 series range was the the 399. This was the only 6 cylinder tractor, with a 104 DIN hp Perkins 1000 series engine. The 399 could only be specified with the Hiline+ cab. The brochure below provides more information on this model.
When it came to choosing a tractor from the 300 series at around 60hp, there were two options available – the 362 and 365. While both models featured the same Perkins A4.236 engine producing 62hp, they were very different. Compared to the 365, the 362 featured a shorter wheelbase by 130mm and was 370kg-471kg lighter depending on the model.
We have produced two very different versions, a 362 4wd and a 365 2wd platform model. The “brochures” below provide some more information on the models.
Massey Ferguson produced footstep models of the 300 series as well as the cabbed variants. They were mainly shipped to developing countries. as well as countries with a warm climate. Indeed, Massey Ferguson still produce brand new 300 series tractors for African and Middle Eastern countries to this day, a testament to the quality design of the 300 series. http://ame-en.masseyferguson.com/14281.aspx
