one for marky, great ole tractor


Recommended Posts

this is a 1972 MF165, with the 212 and multipower

brought for $3000, restored to this state for about $7000NZD from memory

sold it 6 years after restore, for about $8000, brought a 8spd (bit safer on hills with employees) haven't got any pics of that yet, its a wetbrake apparently

anyway, this is a good little tractor, earning its keep like it did, with a 70 inch howard rotovator

we restored these sorts of tractors to put back into fulltime employment, this 165 spent many summers on a NH286, great baling tractor, man enought to do the job, gutless enough not to break the baler
