Wondering how many of you still use your MMs as your main tractors, or if you just use them for fun as a hobby tractor, on our farm we don't use any old ones for main tractors, but we still use them on augers, bailing, and some plowing for fun. If you have any pictures of them out working I'd love to see them.

I use mine occasionally at my cousins, some at home chopping stalks and put up a little hay at home. Here is a few pictures of my M670 Super and one of an M5. Have a bigger stalk chopper coming to use on my 950...hopefully.

Those are some good pictures, like to see them out at work, around here there isn't ever an MM out in the field, you occasionally see them at farm places but very seldom. There's a lot of whites still at work. Your m670 looks to be a pretty nice and strait one in the pictures, the m5 don't look to bad either.

I remember a few years back I saw a guy out cultivating with an M670 Super and a 6 row cultivator. Mine are about the only ones in my area that go out in the field. I cut and bale with the M5, rake and pick up the hay with a ZAU. My cousins use their 2-135 White to do all the sileage chopping, among other things. Can you post some more pictures of your G1355?

Used all MM tractors until 2007 when my brother bought a 2-155 fwa to pull the no-till drill. Both the G1355 and Vista needed expensive repairs at that time. Use a M670 Super and 2 regular M670 for spraying, raking and baling, etc. and a UTS for moving irrigation guns. Hope to have the G1355 back together this winter. Put the heads and oil pan back on this week. Who needs a new tractor when you have GPS and a beacon on your U?

Nice pics. So on your u does it steer itself, or does the screen just show you where you need to be. What kind of system are you running, we run John Deere autotrac, but didn't know you could put it on something that old. That's pretty neat.

Yeah I can, I will have to take some more, haven't used it yet, had to start it last night just to hear it run. I will try and get a few pictures in the next few days, I will have some in a month or so of it plowing, but I will see what I can do.

I don't farm except for a little hobby. The best use I get from the MM's is local club plow day.

Nice looking rigs. How many bottoms do you pull with the 705? I sure like the 4 Star. Wish I had one.

Nice looking tractors. I thought that was a monitor atop the gas tank on the U. I have "GPS" on one of my M5s....(good power steering)...lol

My 705 needs a little help. I pull 4 16's with it, it should pull more. Then again, it takes a bit more traction to pull that 5th plow and around here in the spring, traction can be tough to come by. I have a 4 Star gas and a 4 Star LP. I like them, too.

Since the banker told me to get out of farming and stick to my office job a few years ago, I don't get out to the "patch" much now or have much cause to really run any of my tractors.

But when I was farming - I ran several 605, 800, and HD 800 MM engines 24x7 pumping irrigation water, so I really relied on the Prairie Gold paint day in and day out...

We still farm wtih all Moline's. We now have a g900 that is going to be a big help on the farm. 4 670 supers have farmed 200 acres for the last 20 years here.
