Good morning all,

 

I picked up (2) MF650 tillers (one wide, one narrow) with (2) PTO's and want to know if I can get these to work on my MF16?

 

Any help/experience would be greatly appreciated.

 

Godspeed,

John

Anything is possible, but they certainly weren't meant to couple together.

Does your MF16 have the 3pt hitch? You'll need some sort of rear lift mechanism.

On the MF10 or 12, that those 2 tillers are built for, there was a manual lift

attachment available. It won't fit on your 16.

Driving the tiller off the electric PTO on your K341 is also going to be a challenge.

You have the shaft and gear box, which you'd have to get belt power to somehow.

Even if you lengthened the shaft, the input to the gearbox is orientated the wrong

way in relationship to the K341 PTO.

I think you'd be better off, looking for the correct tiller, and keeping those two for

the MF10 and 12 that you'll be getting soon, now that your addicted. :D  There was

one for sale a few months ago, up your way. I think it was near Perth.

 

 

Here's a couple pics of the correct tiller for the MF16.

I see in your inventory, that you have a cart too. You must have grabbed all that

stuff that was listed on Kijiji. How about some pictures of the treasures? We like

pictures. :smilewink:

Hey Will, great reply, thank you... After looking at the MF12 this morning compared to the MF16, I see the differences. The MF12 I picked up has been re-powered and I don't have the original hh120 for restoration. Do you happen to remember what the MF550 tiller sold for?

 

I guess maybe the game plan here is to focus my restoration on the MF16, and use the MF12 with one of the tillers for my actual work tractor. 

 

Oh yeah, you nailed it.... I do have the bug for old MF Tractors :-)

 

Once the (much needed) rain stops, I'll get some pics of the utilities I picked up.

 

Thanks again for your help, and the MF550 pics..

 

Godspeed,

John

Not sure what or if the Mf550 tiller sold for, but I think he wanted 400.

300-350 is a fair price, if it's all there and in good condition.

When you find one, make sure you get the belly pan with it, or you'll have to build one.

It acts as a guide for the looooong drive belt.

 

I'll try to remember to snap some pics of it.

The lift on the MF 14 and 16 comes from an arm which is attached to the lift cylinder which raises and lowers the deck.. The arm goes back and hooks to the tiller. If you have a 3 point hitch, it has to be removed to put a tiller on..  Noel

Good deal on grabbing that package deal, it wasn't up for sale very long.

You could probably sell 1 of the MF650 tillers and buy a MF550 with what you get for it.

With all tillers for the MF10 to MF16, getting everything all the parts needed to mount them and get them working is important. Lots of times I see MF650 tillers for sale with no PTO gear box and drive shaft, makes them useless without. Same would go for the MF550 tiller.

Welcome to the site.

 

Right, I gapped on that. The 550 tiller hooks to the lugs on the MF14 or 16 axle.

Do you have a manual for the 550?

Sorry I don't. I know this because my buddie has A MF 14. His has a 3 point on it. Had to remove that then hook up tiller. Had to make a pan for the belt underneath the tractor and the lift arm. It worked great, but not sure if he has a manual. Noel

Reason I asked about the manual, is that it's one we're missing here, and myself

and others have been looking for a while.

I got my 550 last fall, and haven't got around to hooking it up yet.

 

Here's a pic of the pan.

Would you have a picture of the lifting strap?

I need to fab one up. Mine is missing.

Don't have a manual, but he had a diagram of the tiller.  I will get a picture of the real one soon hopefully and get measurements.   Noel  

 

A way to get a manual is go to your local Massey Ferguson dealer and they may be able to get you one, for a cost of course.  I got one for my MF 7 from our local dealer a few years ago.
