I finally got the gas and air business on my M5 working right and it runs great. What type/size of plow and mower would be appropriate to use with it?

It would pull 3-16s foresure and probebly even 4-14s or 4-16s depending on your soil, that m5 looks great to

Mercer Tractor Restoration in Excelsior Springs, MO. Nice job throughout at a fair price. Said he wasn't too fond of doing another tractor this big (he does lots of Fords, Allis, MF, and other smaller tractors.

Nice looking tractor. Where did you get your muffler and seat cushions? Did the muffler quiet it down much. I have a M602 that I want to have nice looking like that. What size tires are you running? Both front and back seem a little big which on a tractor that size it sure would not hurt anything.I put 6.5-16 on mine which with a wide front anything fits fine but I have a narrow front that fits the 602 and anything bigger than 6.00-16 rubs.I thought these tractors were a beast to drive but after rebuilding the wide front and good tune up they are as good as it gets.

The tires were on it when I bought the tractor (I paid about what the tires are worth). I'll check the size next time I go to the farm and I'll take a few more pictures.

The seat cushions were custom done at a local upholstery shop.

I think the muffler came from the local farm & home store (Orscheln's in this neck of the woods)
and it is still pretty loud. I like the idea one fellow hadd in adapting a JD 4020 muffler to fit, but I just don't know if I could get used to looking at that big black thing....

We pulled a 4-16 M5000 mounted plow with ours. It was a diesel with 15.5-38 full of fluid and about 3 weights on each wheel and 5 banana weights on the front. It helps if the tel-o-flo is working properly. I never run it myself, by the time I was old enough to plow dad had a M670 Super with the same plow.
