Question for Lynch
[Return to Topics]

Hello down there Lynch-
What is the size difference between your M.F. 175 and our M.H. 444? The horsepower will be lower on the 444, but I believe the displacement is larger.
What is the weight of the 175? The 444 is much larger than a 165 on a farm close to ours. Just curious. Mike

My MF175 is about...    Posted 02-12-2003 at 05:59:44       [Reply]  [Send Email]
...65 inches high and has a 82 inch wheel base(so it's longer than that)...and has 65 horses (63.7 according to some dude in Nebraska)...displacement is about 236 cubic inches (has a Perkins A4.236 diesel)...if I remember it weighs about 7000 lbs....but I'd have to check on that. It has 12 forward and 4 reverse speeds....and is a great all-around tractor...but I might get rid of it and get 2 tractors...I was at the tractor dealer yesterday...looking at a new 35 horse MF and a used MF240 and a few used IHs....really want an air-conditioned cab for down here...saw a new McCormick w/ a/c cab that was great...Won't catch me operating one of those Japanese ones...or the eastern europe ones. But if I get rid of the 175, my father-in-law will buy it and I will still be able to use it whenever. The 444 was a bad boy...and is one of the best, if not THE best, tractor ever made. Lynch
