||i'm looking for information. what is the working H.P. at pto for MF 65 MODEL TRACTOR? there is a tractor like this that is pulling in farm stock classes, 4500 lbs (45hp), 5500 lbs. (55hp)& 6500 lbs (65hp). when he goes on the dyno, he is only showing 38 to 41 hp. when he cranks it up, he is putting out some serious rmp. question??? can the PTO SHAFT be slipping some how that we as inspectors for the club can't see. what else can we do to police this tractor. what is the working rmp per the manual? we believe he is doing something to cheat. need help. he is kicking all the above classes. 1st 2nd & 3th most of the time. thanks
||Is it a diesel or Gas engine tractor the best If remember right Massey rated them at 42 HP
||Well i think thats funny. He isn't cheating no more than the others.What he has is alot more torque.My diesel according to the book has 51 hp. it is stock.Pto at 540 is around 1650 rpm without looking at the tac .I would say he has this tractor hooked up,because they are heavy in the front it is hard to get a good balance.My guess is he is pulling from the lift arms with braces??It makes it pull good like a farmall with a fasthitch 36 inches back from the axle.That is what i learned with mine.Around here we have a measurement from the end of the pto to the center of the drawbar,i don't recall what it is though,but it keeps it fair.I say let the competion lick their wounds.I don't think he is cheating.
||naw, he aint cheatin. them there 65 masseys with the perkins diesel were and are still some bad ass lil tractors. git er done!
||From what I know the tractor has a very flat power curve. I can mow with a 7ft brush cutter at an idle, but just step it up a little when I work up the hills. The 7ft BH 287 recommends 50 hp PTO.
|| My understanding about these tractors is the "65" or 50 or 35 represents the horsepower...am I right or wrong. My daddy has a (approx) 58 model 65. It pulled a 4 bottom 14" breaking plow. I might be wrong ..but I think the number on the hood is the H.P.
