Re: MF 5455 Ploughing
Have had some problems with slow lifting on the 3 point hitch, but now finaly solved the problem. Had to take it out for a test:-)

Could have done with some weights on the front.

Would have liked a quick soil engagement buttom, like on the late MF 3000 and 62 / 6400 series. Very usefull on semi mounted implements.

Re: MF 5455 Ploughing
nice photos Øystein, you can be happy with this soil because in mine area , mf 5455 can plough only with 3 furrow and even then on some parcel have big trouble pull it.

Re: MF 5455 Ploughing
Did your 5455 pulled it as good as your nice 3095.? or was it a big diffrence. and the eventual outcome of the test is:-P ?

Re: MF 5455 Ploughing
Tas; will plant spring barley next year.

frabrne; most common plow in Norway for a 100hp 4syl tractor is 3-4 furrow reversible.

A. van Herk; no problem pulling it, but the dynashift and low end torque of the 3095 makes it more usefull. The lifting speed of the 3 point hitch has been very good now after I changed the hydr system. Pluss now, I can use the combined flow of 100 l/min and the 3 point hitch at the same time. So the test was a sucess. What sort of hydr system have you on your 5460 56 l/min or 100 l/min? And what do you think of the lifting speed?

Re: MF 5455 Ploughing
sorry but i was made a mistake , i didn't registry that is 5455 on your photos, i was think that is 5465. so the 5465 can plough with only 3 furrow, in mine area 100 hp tractors are not common because it's to strong for 2 furrow plugh and powerless for 3 furrow, some minimum necessary power is 40 hp per one 14" furrow.

Re: MF 5455 Ploughing
Our 5460 was a demo model, so because of that ,we have also twinflow on it, maby next year, (2008) a trima loader will follow. because of that we don't have much experience with it yet, we don't use it with any kind of machinery at the moment. but we have no problem with the lifting speed, What i know is that we can't use the combined flow and the 3 point hitch at the same time. according to the instruction books we got with the tractor.. what type of trick did you do with it..?

Re: MF 5455 Ploughing
A. van Herk; Sorry for the late reply:-[ To increase the lift speed you need to, connect the AUX serial hose to the 3 point lift valve. And use the oil from the old 3 point circuit, to lube and cool the brakes. This increases the flow to the 3 point, from 40l/min to 56l/min. To use the 3 point when you combine the flow, you have to change the switch to an on/off type, and make a new wire from the new switch to the relay. If you want more info about this, just let me know and I will mail you some drawings and more info;-) What size of trima loader are you planning to mount, +3P or +4P? And have you the posabillaty to order it with the original Massey loaders in the Netherlands?

Re: MF 5455 Ploughing
Øystein, we are not shure what type we will buy, and we probably also buy a new Vicon drum mower. so the price of the loader will make the diffrence. is there a big diffrence in price or maximum lifting weight between them.? and what will you advise for our tractor...?

Re: MF 5455 Ploughing
A.van Herk: Again sorry for the late reply, been quite busy. I would recomend Trima +3.0P or Quicke Q45 for your MF 5460. As you can see the +4.0P or Q55 is a big loader on our MF 5455 step nose. The reason for the this big loader is because of the lift hight, we're loading potatoes on to lorries. Wasn't it because of this we would have a +3.0P. When I worked at the local MF dealer, we used to mount +4.0P's on 54/6470 and 54/6465. We even mounted some +2.0P on 5455 step noses. The price on Trima and Quicke should be about the same as they are almost identical. The original MF loader is a red Quicke loader, the price of this I don't know as they're not availeble in Norway.

You could have 2 sets of front weights, and still don't hit the crossmember...

Re: MF 5455 Ploughing
don't worry Øystein, busy busy, i know what it is.:-P but thanks for answering annyway.

We don't have to lift any verry heavy stuff like you, so the +3.0P will be enough i think, just filling the feeding wagon, some times transporting wrapped bales and other regular activities. but as long as our silageblockcutter survives (I hope till authum 08) we have time to check around.

And unfortunately the red MF loader is also not availeble in Holland..
