I was wondering if any one knew if there is any mechanical or quality advantage to the DC4 front axle with the heart shaped casting that bolts to the front of the tractor vs the regular axle that attaches under the front of the tractor? Thanks Mike

Thanks for the replies, I thought the center of gravity would be different I didn't think about the eagle hitch,makes sense though. I am planning to put a DC4 front on my DC3 for plowing matches. I use a CASE pull plow so I don't really need weight on the front. The rest of the time the tractor is used mostly for PTO work. If there is no big problem with the strength of the regular front I will probably get it as it is less expensive.

The regular front end will work just fine for your application. It is also heavy duty. Don

The heart shaped front is very helpful for the Eagle Hitch operation. All that weight that far out front helps to balance plows or other heavy attachments. It is a very strong front end. Don

I have 2 of them with the heart front end. They steer much easier, are more stable, work much better for a loader, and actually drive straight down the road. With 7.50 x 16 front tires and 20.8 x 38 rears the hood just sits level. The short one turns a little shorter, and the front end sits lower.

Today's Featured Article - Massey Ferguson 35 (and up) Tractor Assembly Notes - by Jack Wetmore. These assembly notes are for Massey Ferguson tractors with a two stage clutch and 6 speed, 8 speed and mutli-power transmissions. I see a lot of discussion forum messages regarding damaged clutches from improper assembly. The objective is to have the engine and transmission slide together safely and easily until the gap between the two halves is less than 1/4", BEFORE tightening any of the bolts holding the two together. Using bolts to draw the two halves together will damage the PTO ... [Read Article]
