I have a chance to trade a truck for a M5. Says it runs good has a 3pt. It is a gas. Tires are mis matched but look serviceable. Tin looks straight but not perfect. Only seen pictures of it. Before I drive a ways to look at it any thing I should know or look for? Btw truck I'd be trading is worth about $3,000-$3,500. Its about 200 miles away from me. Thanks [/img]

There is 2 versions of M5s. Early and late. Difference is hyd system. Where I live might bring 1000 if diesel and if LP its what will weigh across scales less tires. If gas proably about same as diesel.

Depends on condition. If it has been restored from ground up I would say it is worth $5000 maybe higher
Mismatched tires dull paint little parts missing. About $2000

Although I do like MM I am with the others at $3500 it better be close to perfect. Rear tires and torque amplifier would be my biggest concern.

I agree about the price. Usually M5s, depending on loacation of course, run at the top end about 1800 to 2500 dollars for a decent running machine. Any pictures you can post? I myself would want a little money along with it if the truck is worth that money.

Well the M5 is not worth $3000-3500. More like $1500-2500 if in great shape.

sodbuster I picked up 2 mm m5's gas standards this summer one running and one parts machine. the runner I hooked to my jd. 336 baler and I was totally impressed with the torque and smoothness of the live pto, and amplitorque tranny, in my opinion one of the best baler tractors ever built. I found the m5 to be very nimble in the corners, for a tractor with a 7 ft. hood it'll turn on a dime! barring any serious issues with the motor or tranny go for it. if the tractors running take it for a test run dropping the amplitorque down to low range and back up, for the dollar value your talking it should be a nice runner.
