Congratz to you Daniel, of course you know that original intent and new plan are two different ideas that just cost more money right? LOL
Glad you don't want to put it in the poo.


Yes, more money, BUT the old 175 needs attention to a lot of things except the engine. The engine is solid. If we put the 175 to light duty, she'll likely never get fully repaired. To keep in poo service, she needs attention. My way costs more, but I'll end up with more service from BOTH tractors!

Nice looking Massey Dan. Heck if ya can't find a loader for her you can build one in the shop this winter with your talent. Lol. I'm kinda partial to Red myself. Have a great Thanksgiving to all. Randy G.

Nice looking tractor:thumbs:
Good find, especially the fact that it came from the family member of a dealership! Any Joe selling anything can say "regular service and maintenance has been performed". In your case you can be pretty d**n sure that tractor has had some real good care along with regular maintenance coming from a PO like that! Should last you many years, but not on poo duty please.

Good news! When I spoke to Dad this morning about NOT using the MF362 in the poo, he also had been thinking the same last night. So she is NOT going in the poo, and we'll look for a newer stronger loader to go onto it. The 175 will get repaired & back to the poo. The loader staying on the 175 gets in the way scraping, so it will come off & get retired. It is a very old "Freeman" loader that started life on Dad's old MF50. Not that strong a loader with simple pipe frame, so we're do a heavy duty loader & NEED one. They deliver the 362 tomorrow!

She's home! :dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana:
It is a very tight tractor, with hardly any wear to be found. The rears were a little low & found I need new valve stem valve cores, but that & the cheesy plastic tool box cover is all I can see needing any attention. Gonna go take her for a drive! :D

Called our local Bush Hog dealer & ordered a brand new 2547 front loader for it. No bucket, just hay spike, as that will be all we'll need. This is the only pic I can find of it.'
