I don't know how much my MF4250 tiller weighs, but more than factory after widening it to 53" cut. I'd say it still weighs a bit less than the MF4850, maybe 75lbs less. All my tractors lift it VERY easily. I did add 120lbs cast weights off the front, plus the bumper weighs around 20lbs for a total of 140lb hanging off the front, but without this, no steering hardy at all. As far as lifting, and tilling, all my tractors with front weights handle it NO problem, including my customized Bush Hog JBI. I have even stood on my tiller (another 210lbs) and they lift the tiller PLUS me without a whimper. All are stock as far as pressure setting.NUTNDUN said:I would love to get a tiller for my 1655 but I have other stuff I gotta get done first. Sounds like the tillers are a work out for the big Masseys.
Not sure if it's true, but here's what I read: Mahindra becomes worlds top selling tractor brand - Overdrive Magazine -Luke said:Dan, thats news to me, Mahindra top seller for 2010! Maybe for sub compacts.......but across the board(compacts, sub compacts, utility tractors, farm tractors, combines)they have everybody beat for sales! I'd have to see it in writing to believe Mahindra is top in sales for 2010........not that I don't believe ya I'm just surprised! Don't see any of them around this part of the country. Luke
