Didn't realize you are talking the FF tractors with my no PTO comments, I was referring to the Suburban/Custom tractors.
Not sure of attachments for the FF's.

No problem at all.  They made so few of them. Even fewer attachments.  With the rear PTO and Cat 0 3 point, I can use standard rear attachments.  But anything on the front would have to be custom.  But I will plan for it so I can put a pump for a FEL should I ever want to have one.

Do you have the 2 speed rear PTO or just the 2000 rpm? That limits your "universal" attachment selection. Got the same issue with my mf1855.

No, I would have to make the whole thing.  I would buy something like this from ebay

That would give me 1,000 RPM.  I could even toy around with the front pulley ratio to the drive shaft and try for 540.

 

Or I would buy a hydro PTO and then put a bigger pump on the front.
