Looking for opinions on Multi-power MF65. Will be used for mowing, spraying, raking, manure spreader, hay wagons, small square baler. Gas engine. No plowing or lugging.
Reliable, easy to use? safe?

I have multipower on my MF 1105 - first time using such an arrangement. Nothing like that on this farm - ever. Even my sickly IH Farmall 756 gasser is factory TA delete. The speeds we have typically ran around here really didnít require MP, however the 1105 can move out with my disc mower conditioner and itís handy to drop into MP low in turns and when I encounter some bumpy riding areas. I would buy MP again.

BTW - you had answered a question regarding a Haybob rake/tedder combo. I never bought the one for sale - but I really appreciated the reply.

Good luck,
Bill

I have a 1962 with multipower, never had a problem or changed fluid, great to have if you do anything with PTO, but that being said I would not buy a old tractor with multipower again. if the ever break the tractor is basically yard art.

It's real handy IMO. The engine braking thing is overdone IMO. Yes, with a heavy load behind you or going down a real long or steep hill it comes into play. But for around the farm it's not a huge deal if the brakes work. I have a 65 gas MP. Very, very handy tractor. And no, you can't pull start one but it also has the easiest to remove starter I can think of. If it shifts into MP nicely and is otherwise in decent shape I wouldn't be scared of it at all.

I was told you must keep transmission- hydraulic oil changed.That's the life of it.

MP is a great asset but only if it is used correctly. As has been said you MUST keep it in MP HIGH on any hilly ground as you will have no engine braking in MP LOw. Make sure that anyone else who might drive it understands this. Also you will not be able to tow it to start it. There is also a higher repair cost should anything fail. If you drive one check for a crisp up-shift.

Make sure to stay in direct drive on hills. (multpower will freewheel in low like being in neutral)
