New member
My names Rich, New here, and just brought home a MF 253-4. I live in eastern Ky, have a lil farm i am trying to get going, 100 acres mostly hills n woods but will be clearing some more for grass now that i got a tractor. Last tractor i was on was a mf135 or maybe a Fordson Major, been a while. Back to the Country life now. I need to figure out some on the 4wd of the 253 and hopefully find some help here. Thanks all

Congrats and welcome to NTT.
Those Massey's are workhorses. 4wd makes such a difference, you will love it.
I'm a couple hours north of Ashland KY (SE Ohio) and I have the hills and woods much like yours, and I love it. Fun fun fun. :D

Welcome! Beautiful country.

I see that's a Great Bend loader on the Massey. My larger (24 hp) Yanmar has a GB loader like that one. You will get a lot of work out of that. And the MF's are legendary.
