MF 698

This tractor is currently parked in my fields and onwed by the farmers who graze their sheep here.  They have been tedding a field of hay with it.

It is a 1980s MF 698 2 WD and quite a solid beast of some 90hp or so.  We do not see these too often now and the 4WDs are much more common.  As you can see they suffered severe cab rot!  It is in fact the first time that I have seen one at close quarters.

Were there many in N America?

RE:MF 698

Here on the Eastern side of England we rarely saw a two wheel drive 698 or any other model, if you did see one you always took a second glance as it seemed so different,  the trend which continues today was mostly four wheel drive.

Here is a nice 698 T (turbocharged) 4WD.
