Are you asking if the MF8 can pull ground engaging equipment such as a plow?

Yes, to be built behind the elevators and the small backplate, and perhaps some of the other tillage equipment, which are then pulled behind and think hydra speed transmission durability, and how to take a lot of pull at work ..?
It would also be intended to draw a small garden behind a cart, but how many have the courage to put weight on the trailer ..?

Welcome to GTTalk. The MF8 is not rated for ground engaging equipment. It is really a lawn tractor and not a GT. The MF10/12 is a true GT and is rated for ground engaging equipment.

MF Garden :welcome: to GTTalk.

As said above, the MF 7/8's were not designed to pull ground engaging equipment such as plows, discs, cultivators.

They were considered OK for pulling Medium sized lawn rollers, lawn seeders, lawn trailers, etc. The way I explained it to my son was that if it has it's own wheels, you should be able to use it with a Lawn tractor.

Welcome to GTT MF garden. Hope you find lots of good information here. Enjoy your MF8, they're good riding mowers. I've loaded a garden dump trailer like those you find at Tractor Supply, Sears, Lowes or Home Depot full with rocks and taken them to a washed out area I have and dumped them with my riding mower with no problems. Like MH81 said, if it has it's own wheels you should be able to pull it ok but NO PLOWS or other GROUND ENGAGING EQUIPMENT.

Thank you for your welcome wishes for :smilewink: . There are no pictures of the tractor project a little still, when I bought it from USA and arrived at Christmas, but the lifting was planning a small outboard plate towed by a snow mostly work, but I think I'll just concentrate on the trailer tow yard doing some gardening.
Perhaps the bigger draw, and I do the transfer work, then the MF-165 tractor and perhaps the future, the MF-135 tractor, the more suitable in a small yard to larger district chores.
