I have a list of implements that I want to pull this summer. I need opinions on whether each is a good or bad idea.

8" moldboard plow. Used to be a horse plow if that matters

33" offset atv disk. Notched blades and will be adding weight.

Homemade row crop cultivator. Made with 3 12" chisel plow sweeps bolted to international C shank cultivator shanks.

Thanks in advance on your input.

I would think it would be fine, just be mindful of sudden shocks. That's where the damage could occur.
Keep the speed down on the plowing and be ready for rocks. Same with the cultivator.

Ok. Thanks. When you say keep the speed down that means 1st gear at 3/4 throttle or about there (under 2.5 mph)? At my place there isn't much to speak of for rocks because most of them are picked out and put wherever they aren't in the way. I might have a row crop gt sized cultivator around unless it went with grandpas massey ferguson... That could work better.

I was thinking the same thing about the transaxle, Just looked at those tractors and IMHO i wouldn't try working the feilds with it.

​It is your tractor and can do what you please with it

If you plow with it and it has a major break down at least your being warned and hope you don't get too mad at yourself

Did Moto Mower offer these attachments when they were new?

I think you should get the 12 HP Massey going and use it or buy bigger

I have a MF14 and compared to the Moto Mower the Massey is a tank and I also know there is a few years between them

Since the MF exec and moto-mower GTs have the same transaxle, this should help answer some of the questions:

My suggestion would be to avoid the temptation of loading on a lot of weight.

I have another question regarding my Moto Mower and various implements. Would my Moto Mower have any trouble whatsoever pulling a brinly row crop cultivator In sandy ground? Would pulling a cultivator be considered light duty work?

Thanks for your time

I don't think it's an issue my only concern would be if you bust something on the tractor moto mower parts are not that easy to come across anymore.

Agreed. I don't want to break anything... That's why I'm getting more opinions. I've only ever seen one more transaxle EVER. I think I know of another Moto Mower locally. Actually it is just down the street from where I bought this one.

Sorry for digging up an old thread, but I have more questions... In the massey ferguson exec brochure, there is a plow cultivator and disk for use with the massey ferguson exec, that leads me to the conclusion that I probably could put the Moto Mower to work with light ground engagement work.

Now, I know there are risks to go along with this plan. I have heard that the rear axle is potentially delicate, that I should avoid jerking the tractor around or using ground engaging work. Parts are also very hard to find

Yes you can put it to work.

The tractor has skinny rear tires, not a lot of traction compared to a larger tire with lots of weight on it, so your trany will be fine.

Add bigger tires and too much weight then ??? you start pushing the trany harder.

IamShewood is the guy you want to talk to he has all the Executives with attachments.

Sorry, Will was here more before you joined.
He is both older and bigger than that gent.

And his suit would be lavender, not white.
