Great 47 hp Tractor Posted by Eliot Raymond on 01/05/2012

We needed a tractor that could go really slow for our waterwheel transplanter that at times needs to go about 1/10 th mph. I thought a gear tractor would be less trouble in the long run than a hydro. This is a 12 speed powershift. We needed a 3PH that would lift the transplanter with 250 gal of water two people and the machine itself.

This tractor has great hydraulics and a powerful loader. It is quiet, clean, and smooth. The platform design is really comfortable. The parking brake is easy to use with no contortions to lock it and it automatically unlocks when you press on the brake pedal. Steering wheel tilts with a foot operated mechanism. Great all around tractor. We get parts from Massey Ferguson dealer.
