The ONLY other tractors we've owned were a couple old Avery, a former navy dock tractor which was part I-6 International/M Farmall, and we still have Grandpa's Minneapolis Avery model, and I still have my customized MF1650, and my 67 MF12H.
This is my heavily modified MF1655 with Yanmar diesel & my home built loader. This is my workhorse.This MF85 I sold a few years ago.
That's a nice Minneapolis Moline and a nice group of garden tractors! On your 2705 and 2745, how often did you have to rebuild the transmissions? Are they hard to rebuild? Is there any particular way to operate the power shift to prevent problems? I am curious, because I have heard that these tractors had trans. problems and I wondered if they are really as bad as some say they were. Thanks!
