"I have 2 MF563s, purchased about 6 months apart. I've never had any problems other than a fuel gauge failing. Even the original batteries are still going strong. The engines are rated at 55 PTO hp from Massey, but when the dealer checked them in front of me they both where just touching 62 PTO hp.
They drink light, work hard when I push them. If anything, they run out of traction long before they run out of horse.My MF GC2310 is just as willing as his big brothers. None have no in their vocabulary. "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Easy start no matter the weather, easy on fuel. they just go go go.Cons: The 563s could use a little more power steering boost at low rpms.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: CND OTI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"For 65 hp and 6ft wide , this is it. Like a small bulldozer this one gets in the tight places.
The 461 was just like it. the 1055 loader seams a little higher reach than the 1050 fel."
