My 35- and a topper
« on: June 16, 2012, 12:00:52 am »
Ive had a MF 35 for over a year now and am now looking it t oearn its keep. I've got a link box and a small sower for it now. Im looking at a second hand 6ft topper- will my Massey Ferguson 35 be able to drive this topper. Im only topping tall whispy type grass after the sheep have been on it.
 
Thanks

Why aye  :thumbsup:

It would struggle with thick reshes but topping grass it should be fine.  Our 135 does a lot of our mowing, wooffling and rowing up (and all of our scraping out.)

I agree, so long as you arent on an alpine 1 in 2 and only mowing uphill :-) it should be fine :-))))
