Ferguson was unhappy with the project, and ordered Klemm to stop work. However, after another letter from Klemm, running to 23 pages, Ferguson changed his mind and allowed development to continue. The new Ferguson 35 was launched in the United States on 5 January , a year earlier than planned,  following a decision made at a conference in San Antonio in March It was initially available in two models; standard or deluxe, with a third utility added in Production ended in late Whilst the TE20 had been an all-grey tractor earning it the nickname Little Grey Fergie , the FE35 had a grey shell and wheels, but a bronze finish for the body,  leading to it becoming known as the "Gold Belly".

These features, along with advanced engineering, mean the M Series tractors are ideal for general farm and property maintenance tasks, landscaping, small-scale road and land grading, and light construction. The M Series feature clean-burning Tier 4-compliant turbocharged diesel engines, with five models ranging from 36 to 60 hp. All models meet Tier 4 emissions without using an expensive diesel particulate filter DPF. Emission standards are met using an exhaust gas recirculation valve EGR and a diesel oxidation catalyst DOC , resulting in maintenance free systems. Massey Ferguson has seen great success with the Shibaura engines in our economy compact lineup so placing them in our latest premium compact tractors made a lot of sense.
