    Changing wheels

    TBH l am not really sure. All l know is when we bought it at 10 years old in 1988 it came on 13.6x38 12.4x36 seems very small for a 66 hp tractor even in 1978.

    Changing wheels

    My MF 575 is on 13.6x38 and the tyres are totally gone in both sidewall and thread. Been on the lookout for 2nd hand replacements for a bit. Have been offered a pair of 16.9x38 wheels & tyres at decent price. I know 16.9x34 would be the correct size for this tractor but would there be any issues...

    7.5 ton lorry

    Good evening. Been considering for some time now , the purchase of small truck (flatbed) for bringing tractor & plough to matches and so on. No big budget so looking at 20 year old or so. Will be only doing approx 1000 miles p.a. It seems the bulk of them are MAN , Merc , DAF or Iveco. Anyone...
