MX tractors

Looking at buying a mx tractor. Was wondering what the difference is between the mx180 and mx200 compared to the 240 and 270. Are trans and engine the same? Is the only difference hp?

We have an MX 200. All four of them are essentially the same tractor. The 240 and the 270 have the same displacement motor as the 200 and the smaller one, but the bigger ones do have more valves per cylinder. They all have the same transmission options. I have the shuttle shift in ours, no problems with it, just took some getting used to when we went from the old 88 series IH's. Good luck in your searching!

Axles are different between them also. On the 240 and 270, they have the 4.5" as compared to the 4" on the smaller. Also the 270 has 4 planetary gears as for the 4 smaller models they only have 3 planetary gears.

Guess you'll find out quick then.

If the 7830 has a VGT turbo like the bigger ones, it ought to be pretty snappy.

The 8.1L in our 7810 pulled all day at 1500 RPMs, but wasn't fast enough with the 24' field cultivator or have the guts with a small grain cart in the fall in the hills. Really didn't feel any stronger than our 4430, and as far as I know, it isn't turned up at all. The 78 was a LOT better on fuel, and started MUCH better too.
