12 speeds: Not slow. Fast. Really fast. Really, really fast. Too fast. Insanely fast. Hold on really tight and pray. Everybody out of the way!  That poor squirrel didn't have a chance. Was that a gazelle? Close all flaps and drag fins! * and Plaid.**


I've never run an MM that didn't have at least most of its gears that were really fast. That looks like a really handy chore tractor. I never understood why MMs were never very popular. They seem like really rugged tractors to me.

Yap , they are fast in high range alright , but low range slows them down and has plenty of brute power !! they make good plowers and pullers --hate to sell her but just don't need her .

Ran a few molines and they were good farm tractors. If you think they had some high gears, you should try out my miline forklift. Only 2 gears, but high must be for the dragstrip. lol

Wish I could buy it, always liked the look of those M5's and they are a good size for high production haying.

I got to drive a G950 for a while-- that old girl was a torque basket for sure, and no the gears were not too high, just about right, I'd say.
No matter how conventional wisdom may fly in the face of radical thought, it's still the most popular type.
