Massey Ferguson 240 Parts & Tractors For Sale, Information, Serial Numbers

Massey Ferguson 240The Massey-Ferguson 240 was a general farming tractor that was manufactured in Coventry, England and released to the public in 1983. The 240 had great success and was produced until 1999. The standard edition of the Massey-Ferguson 240 had a two-wheel drive chassis, but a four-wheel drive chassis was optional. Power assisted steering and open, dual valve hydraulics added to the 240’s appeal. The braking system consisted of a drum and shoe design that was operated by two, lockable foot pedals and a hand lever.

As for the power behind the Massey-Ferguson 240, it had a diesel-ran Perkins engine that put out a tested PTO speed of 31.89hp at 540rpms. When tested for two hours at 604rpms, it had a rated engine speed of 34.77hp. For the drawbar, the maximum available power in fifth gear was 28.60hp. The engine had three vertical cylinders, was liquid cooled, and had dual dry, paper element air cleaners. An ether pre-heater and a block heater were both optional.

The 240 had a transmission with eight forward speeds and two reverse speeds. The forward speeds were separated into four “Low” speeds (1-4), and four “High” speeds (5-8). The reverse gears were also Low and High. The Low speeds ranged from 1.4 to 4.7mph, while the high speeds ranged from 5.7 to 18.8mph. Only one twelve volt battery was needed on the 240, along with a thirty-two amp alternator for charging.
