buying a MF 175 or 275

steve K I an looking at a 1974 MF175 in really good shape or a 1981 MF275 with a multipower trans. I have never owned a MF before just the Green Tractors. If one of you that has been around these tractor's Which one would you buy and why. This is my first post here and thanks for any insight you can give me.
Geoff Gane Steve the decision can only be yours..both 175 and 275 are good tractors...one in the same actually ..the 275 will have a factory fitted cab ..the 175 will only have an after market one fitted 275 has heater and a few more whistles and bells 275 has better brakes...a hitch fitted...if you have seen both tractors it should be easy to make a decision although the 275 will probably cost more....hope this gives you some help...if you need any more just ask....Best regards....Geoff
steve K The seller says it has a good transmission and multipower that works just as it should.
What is a multipower?


Geoff Gane Steve inside the gearbox is a clutch pack ..on the dashboard panel is the multi-power switch..move it forward and you engage high..move back you engage low which should NEVER be engaged when going downhill as you have no engine braking...you cannot tow start a multi-power tractor.this is in addition to your normal gears...just loke a splitter gear...this is the simplest way of describing the setup but the simplest way is to go and view the tractor/s if they are near at hand..if you need any more help just get in touch again..best regards..Geoff
jonjon multipower is good when it works. but big$$$$$$ when it don't. both good machines.
