How do I check the oil level in the gear box on my MF 25?
Another problem:
I'm not able to get the 3-point lift down.
Any suggestions?

To check the oil level in the gearbox (combined transmission and hydraulics) there is a filler plug with dipstick located on the back of the transmission housing directly above the pto shaft. Maybe covered by a towing hook or coupling. Capacity is 19 liters / 5.48 US gallons of SAE 10W30 oil. The adjustment of the complex hydraulic system is critical. You are aware of a lowering control handle on the top side of the lift cover under the seat? This controls the rate at which an implement will drop. You have to put a weight on the lift, without a weight the lift arms will go up (at least on my 25).

Thank's a lot for your help.
There where no dipstick, but a level-plug.
Well, I opened that plug and out came some "oil" with the same color that my hair is turning now. :-)
Should the oil look like it is full of water?
This is not the case on other tractor I have seen.

Regarding the lift, it is correct - I had to put some weight on the arms.
And adjust the "locking-lever" that I found under the seat, on the left side just above the wheel-axel.

If the color of your hair is kind of brown the oil is in good shape. If it's black it's time for an oil change..........How did you get the 25? It's not a very common tracktor here on this board. E-mail me if you need anything else. I've got a manual.

"If the color of your hair is kind of brown the oil is in good shape. If it's black it's time for an oil change..........How did you get the 25?"

I've still got some light-brown hair, but it is turning white, like the oil in the gearbox. That is - if I cannot find out why the oil get like this.
I have drained the box, flushed it 3 times with diesel-oil and refilled with fresh new gear-oil.
But still the oil is grey/ white.

I found my 25 in an ad in the local newspaper.
Got it for NOK 5000,- (US$625).
