  1. Good summary specification information. Interesting that some of the Massey Ferguson tractors (such as the MF 231S which I have and enjoy using) list no “Three-Point Hitch Lift Capacity (at ends)” spec. I’d be curious if MF doesn’t publish the lift capacity for certain tractors, perhaps due to country of manufacture? (the 231S was mfg in Turkey). Based on review of similar class MF tractors I’m guessing the lift capacity (at ends) of the 231S is around 2850 lbs.
