|Wayne Wheeling||I am considering buying a MF 231 from a friend. He is asking $7500 for it. It has always been garaged and has only 251 hours with about 30 of those at my house. My question is if anyone has one and installed a MF Front-end loader, what do they think? The dealer said something about having to shift the hydraulic fluids to the front or something like that and the counterweight implement on the rear would sagafter a while when losing hydraulic pressure? What is that all about. This ould be my first tractor, and any suggestions or comments would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!
|Len||I looked at a 231 but didn't buy it, but as I understood things, the hydralics either operate the lift arms or the remote, not both concurrently.
I got a used 255 instead, it has a second pump for the remote, or at least, it will operate independantly of the lift arms.
For a 231, I wouldn't try to lift something so big that I needed a counter weight. You could have the rear tires filled w/ fluid for weight.
|Mike||Your dealer is correct. I have a MF231 w/ MF232 FEL. You have to switch a valve to operate. The 3PH will go down while operating the loader. I lift the large rolls of hay and buckets of anything without weights. No problem.
