I got my M about a year and a half ago for 850 dollars. Overall there is nothing really special about it from any other Mbut I still love to use it for work and play lol. As long as there is gas in the tank and the battery is charged it will start no matter how cold it is outside. One interesting fact about it is since it was a WW2 era tractor it has the cast iron shift knob.

Just some random pics of it.

Nice ol' M. The M is a great work horse,I've never known an M get stuck for power, but a real gas guzzler, but that doesn't stop me from 'loving' mine,( it's a toss up between my M or W6).

I think the M pretty much is the mate to the Massey Harris 44 for power and gas consumption. At current prices, it is quite painful to run all day. I now delegate small chores to much smaller tractors... I used to run 44's continually. I just wish MY M would run, currently it's locked up, which is the why I bought it for $200.00. :cool: :cool:

I did use kerosene for a few months, but had to go down a gear on every job, it just didn't have the power of petrol.

Thanks for all the compliments.

I will have to get a picture of the M next to the 504 utility next time I borrow.
