Article published in the August 1963 edition of Massey-Ferguson Review features images of: "Up to 25 million gallons of brackish water every 24 hours was pumped into Lake Corangamite, Victoria, for about 12 weeks. Except for daily lubrication it was a non-stop pumping marathon for six tractors, including four MF 35S units."
