    Be very carefull with the multi power..they have a nasty reputation and require proper operation to prevent accidents eg going into neutral on a steep hill snd running away. A neighbour had this happen and it nearly did him in. He sold it fir a JD the next week 😐

    A mate also has one and commented that you need to know how to drive them otherwise they can bite you hard.

    Hi all, Ive spent hundreds of hours on these MFs. My understanding with the MultiPower is that you dont have engine braking in I think High range mult-power? Hence the tendency to run away down hills. Very useful half gear when working under load in the right circumstances as these machines have no synchromesh.

    Think so, or maybe the 9Gs. Very good road speed for an old tractor, few guys around here have them set up for doing tractor treks, believe one has added a turbo and a/c for a bit extra bling factor

    Gee, some nostalgia right there! The metal work is in amazing condition considering it's age. I had the same one from new, but not multi-power. Was a big step up from a 135!

    The one that I had did, but not sure about the later ones. Mine was ancient, it was a 6G and had an L4 Perkins engine, which DID break the crankshaft as they were prone to do! It was fitted with a front end loader and a backhoe. The backhoe had been built by a local engineering company, and I am sure it was the start of my hair turning white. Mongrel thing!
