 MF 231S - how to start

Hey Guys, new to MF. Just arrived at my Father in-laws place to help with mainenance (he is ill). He has a MF 231S.

How do i start this machine? I saw it running about 4 weeks ago. Not sure what combination of pedals need to be pushed to get it to start.

-Rick

First hope you father in law health.

I think that tractor has a pull out knob on the lower right side of the front console to cut it off and if so you need to push it in first. As to pedals the only one you should need to depress would be the clutch. The PTO should be out of gear but would be hard to beleive an experienced operator would cut it off with PTO still engaged.

Thanks. My wife had to come and start the tractor,....Laughing out loud.... It ended up being that not only does the trasmission have to be in nuetral, but alos the gearbox for high/low. Runs fine, again thanks for commenting.

He does have another MF, older model, that has the pull swithch that you described.
