Very few people want that shit, so they are holding on to their older equipment. The 50 year old stuff with mechanical diesels that can be worked on with simple tools are suddenly much more attractive.

We saw the same thing happen with pickup trucks. A ford with a 7.3 diesel is suddenly commanding a premium as are dodge with the 5.9. They may be 20 years old but folks are finding out that compared to the new stuff they are still pretty efficient, are very reliable, and cost less to keep running.
Plus one Matt you nailed it nobody wants a POS that wants to go into REGEN or limp mode because you have an emissions issue every time you really need it.

Picked up a MF135 at a local auction for $3100.

Im a tractor noob.

Mind explain how these controls work? Lift goes up and down but im not sure what the different settings are for.

As far as the PTO I know that neutral and the "engine" spots do, but what about "ground"?

Edit...its a diesel.

Must have done ok because I had several old timers walk up and say I got a good tractor.

Here is a service manual and an operators manual.

I don’t remember how the draft controls work, but the ground pto stops the pto when you clutch. It connects it directly to the drive train, so the momentum of the attachment can put you through a fence.

I think one of the draft controls is like a lower limit. You use the other control to raise the implement at the end of the row, then when you lower it back down it goes to the right depth.

The Massey manuals are very good and well worth the money.

I think you got a good one.

Don’t expect the response lever to do anything noticeable.

Ground pto is a setup where the pto is driven in relation to the wheel speed. A PTO driven fertilizer spreader for example.

That should have a two stage clutch in it. As you press the clutch in, about halfway the wheels will stop being driven from the engine, the PTO if engaged (not in ground speed) should stay under power. Sometimes there is a double clevis in the clutch linkage and the pin gets swapped, more or less ‘disabling’ the PTO clutch. Makes for a lighter and lower clutch pedal, great for lots of non PTO work, like a lot of tillage work.

Onto the 3 point hitch controls. Basically two options AFAIK, draft control and position control. Position control is what you will be more apt to use. Lift lever up, arms come up. Down, they lower. (Hydraulic up and gravity down on that model I believe.)

Draft control is more for something like a plow or discs, as the depth or load increases, the implement ‘pivots’ around the lower mounts on the arms, and pushes on the top link mount. The top link mount then controls an automatic valve and raises the implement back to the ‘depth’ it is set at.

Sometimes the internal linkages for the 3pth wears, the Fords I had made all the tools and setting blocks to work on them. If there’s any issues there the service manual should be a pretty straight forward walkthrough.

One of my favorite things about SFT is Knowledge and how it is shared here. I learn something every day.
