my friend once bought a MF 175 3 speed with h/l transmission at a (what you buy is what you get sale).
the mulit power slot had been very professionally covered. So he thought it was not a multi power tractor.
Not so, the multipower fuction was not working so they just took the dash lever off and covered the spot.
the old tractor had no brakes and without brakes, you cannot stop a non fuctioning multipower tractor on the down hill.
Wow, what a trip driving that old tractor, it only had low range.
He did not give much for it, but he did not get much, was very dangerous to drive on the road, did not matter too much in the field as you could alway let the tool down to stop it.
also, it did not drive to well either, front end was worn out, so on the road it was a thrill a minute.
i only drove it once on the road and that was enough for me.
just check it out before you buy!!!!!!!!!!!
