If you're just using it around the house, to keep the yard, plow the drive way, mow and look after the garden it's probably more than heavy enough, even without the square rear axle. The square axle is a fair bit heavier but, are you going to earn your pay with it? Those round axles, with outboard drum brakes were used for many years in earlier industrial versions and did just fine. One thing, if the brakes need redoing, which many older tractors need, they'll be a h#^l of a lot easier than the inboard disc brakes of the square axle. The tractor looks in OK shape and if the engine starts and runs well, no major leaks, the steering works fine and with what looks to be pretty good tires, around here that would be running towards the high end of a good price range. Make sure it starts up well when cold, (not prewarmed by owner) and operate it. Put a load in the bucket, see if the cylinders hold and nothing drops (bucket/boom), make sure steering works fine with the load, make sure PTO works and put some weight on the 3pt if possible and make sure it's working OK. It looks like that loader is powered by the intermal pump in the trans. Check to see if you can live with the speed it lifts at. It may be slow. If it has an auxiliary pump mounted on the front of the engine crankshaft, the loader should work fairly quick with no lack of power for that small bucket. Is it gas or diesel? The ser # plate might be on the left side, below the dashboard cowling, on the frame that supports the battery and dash, in front of the steering gearbox. That's where it is on our MF35.

The 175 NEVER had outboard drum brakes. Most had dry disc brakes which worked unless the seal from the differential started leaking and the oil got to them. Late models had wet disc brakes. An oil leak around the wheel would be from the planetary final drive and may not affect the brake.

How hard is it to find a front mounted pump and bracket if I choose to mount one to speed up the loader operation?
Thanks All!
