I am looking at a 95 283mf to farm with! The tractor is a 2wd with bush hog loader, 1934 hrs, decent metal rear left fender has a bend in it but over all seems to be a nice machine! I'm not really crazy about the clutch pedal location and design vs something like a massey 275! That is what I was raised on! Love that tractor! I would just like to know what to watch for on the 283! Also the price they are willing to do is $9750! I'd love to hear opinions even if they are negative! I just need a tractor to last me a long time! I've looked at older ones but they want an ARM and leg for them!

I'm not much help, I inherited my my only tractor a '79MF205, but from what I've seen so far buying parts, or just glancing for them they are getting harder to find parts. Massey ferguson isn't around making parts anymore so everything is aftermarket, if you can't find that then what? Just something to think about.

In my case, with the 1979 it is harder to find some parts, and also hard to find information.. When I inherited the 205 I was real interested in restoring it, while using it. But as I look up parts I am wondering if it's worth my time.
