I'd say the Massey will be easier on fuel, that the 354 Perkins doesn't use hardly anything, we used to run a 2-105 white same motor, and we always figured around 6 gph working it as hard as you could. The Massey will have more gears to choose from which would be nice, the Massey is just more modern, the vista would be as nice as for user comfort or close to it, but if you went and plowed all day I'd say the g1000 would win, it should have more low end power, "cubic inches" and should be better on heavy loads, but if you want a planting or hay tractor the 2705 would be handier in my opinon, but if I had to choose I'd take the g1000 because I just love the MM tractors.

I would not even think about buying a 2705 MF.

ha ha, ok. So you would definitely choose the Moline. I have been reading the archives on this site about the G1000 vista. Lots of comments about them having great lugging power, and strong pullers.

What to look for when doing a pre purchase look at one?

Make sure toque doesn't slip on low side, some have a 3 speed torque and parts are hard to find, rather than that they should be a good tractor, I have seen a couple with patched blocks I'd be scared of but if you look it over you'll see that. The vista is a lot nicer, user friendly wise than the other g1000s

What kind of drill are you gonna pull? What type of hydraulics does the vista have on it?

Likely with the dolly wheels, as we will be renting it from the elevator. Not sure of the hydraulics on the Tractor.

Hopefully they have the john deere 750 15 foot drill for rent. I hear the 2 pt is the preferred way to go, but guess they will have the dolly wheel.

You better make sure the vista has closed center hydraulics then.

If you even consider an MF of the 2000 series I would post on the MF board (if you havent allready..) about them. I believe they had some trouble with the power shifts on them.

Should be a decal on it, your suppose to start and let warm up in high side for 20 or 30 minutes I believe and then put in to low and see if it slips if it does repeat it and if it continues to slip its more than likely got a sprang clutch. Should be able to test driving it, I always test the the whites when you hold the brakes and let the clutch out slow, if the motor Bogs down and tries to move its good, if it just slips and doesn't bog down then its usually shot, sure it works on MMs to, I'm more familiar with the over under.

As far as fuel goes... I have a G 707, and used to have a MF 1105 - same engine as the 2705. I used to run them both on a Gehl feed mill. The MM would burn half the fuel. The Massey would fall flat on its face under a heavy load... The 707 you could run the infeed chute over and it would just sit there and lug. Pretty good considering there was a difference of about 40 HP at PTO speed.

A 2705 has open center hydraulics, and they are not very good at best. It would be a nicer tractor to use for regular fieldwork, but are known for trans problems. The smaller ones like the 2705 were better than the bigger tractors. I currently have a MF 2805, now that is the definition of a fuel pig!
