  • 1969 MM G-1000 Vista diesel for sale. Needs rear 2 jugs overhauled, it s all there except the chrome emblems. Has narrow front on it I think from a 670 . Front tires are junk, rears are 70% 18-4-38. Tin is mostly straight, fenders are a little tweaked, but will come back. Was going to go pulling with it, but can t bring myself to chop it up.

  • Looking for pics--precious few were taken when I was a teenager working on granpa s place. He ran minnie mos and they captivated me then and still do now--power--he had a Vista G1000 diesel with cab, must have been 68 or 69 , very unusual to have a cab tractor at that time and he was stepping up from a M5. Later he added a vista G1000LP, strong tractor. Both pulled 6-16 s and clay didn t stop em. Tandem disc with harrow also, LP with 18.5 ft and the diesel with 19.5 ft. Later he picked up a M670 and we used that for cultivating, pulling the planter and such...good tractor,, LP as well. The best and my favorite wa the 75 White 2-150--bought used around 78 , came wioth a chrome exhaust that curved to the right and no muffler, 585 c.i. no turbo no intercooler no high rpm, just raw stroke power and the nicest flame when plowing at night, that thunderous sound lugging 7-16 s and later a 25 ft tandem disc with harrow--fancy disc with hydraulic folding,, a white i believe, all the other implements mentioned were Moline brand. Granpa tried to muffle the 150 but the damn muffler was so thick I couldn t see around it so he took it back off a few weeks later and I never saw it again.Anywho, any pics of these big cats in action in the field would be appreciated. The 150 ran duals and in furrow on the seven bottom,, the diesel Vista had these unique cones for the duals to attach to, added weight and just had a nice look with the duals on. Any pics would be appreciated. Straight furrows! If anybody stilll pulls a moldboard.

  • My Father in-law, Herman Lawson Of Portland, Ind. was a Minneapolis Moline dealer for many years. I can remember plowing for him eith a G-1000. Due to my inexperience I scorched the clutch by using too high gear, it just would not pull down. I just ran across a set of toys he had given my daughters for Christmas, a G-1000, 4 btm. plow, disk, gravity wagon and machinery shed. Sure brings back memories. E. C. Smith

  • I bought a MM G1000 LP about one year ago with only 100 hours on an overhaul. I love it. It plays with a heavy 15' Case disk. Often I use it to roll down mole hills in the yard. I figured that the MM on the front stands for Mole Masher.

  • I couldn't begin to tell you how many hours I spent on our vista 1000 as a kid. That thing was tough and would like to buy one today if there is anyone with quality tractor for sale out there please contact me. It doesn't have to look good, just needs to run good. 816-308-0145. I am also interested in other mms for sale. These are for my personal use not show.

  • My real dad use to own two G1000s and we used one for field work. We used 5 bottom plow and and a 16 foot disk with a 16 foot drag behind disk occasionally. It was a damn good work horse in the fields but the pto took a crap and thats only problem we had with that one. The other G1000 was older style and used that for spreading manure and when ever we thought we working them two G1000s it didn't even phase'em. G1000s where built heavy which is good for field work and had very good lugging power. One of the best tractors ever built and one of the best in my book for sure.

  • G1000 Wheatland produces two things well. An exhaust stack bravado howl and about 110.8 hp at the PTO. It would look equally good going thru any states capital not to mention rearranging the traffic if necessary. Put me on that long list of "I want it too" customers.
    Richard P Brighton wrote on Friday, September 05, 2003 (PDT):
  • I owned a MM M670 Super which was LP and a G950 LP on the farm here in north Iowa. My Dad and I found that if you used a tank heater to warm the coolant through the vaporiser that they would start and stay running until engine warmed up. I work for a MM dealer and we always installed a Century vaporiser on all the LP tractors he sold installed Century 100 vaporisers was the size and the tractors ran more fuel efficently. With vista engine being a 504 it will take about 2hrs to warm it with a tank heater 1500 watts size.

  • hey guys, I have a G1000 vista diesel and lp.The diesel runs fine, but the lp is hard to start. It acts like it isnt getting enough fuel. When its cold, it runs, then dies, but when you hold the starter in gear, it runs fine.Then when you shut it off when its warm, it starts and runs like a sewing machine. I think it may be a filter, but any help out there will help alot. thanks.
    Steve B. wrote on Monday, May 26, 2003 (PDT):
  • I used to run a G-1000 Diesel. Awesome power and torque, and the sound out of the exhaust was unforgettable. We farmed around Central Pennsylvania, and I occasionally drove through the capital of Pa. on my M.M. with dual wheels on it on the way to other farms. It was quite a shock for the "city folk" to see a G-1000 roaring down the city streets.

  • I bought a Vista G1000 on LP in November,1985. I use it almost every day on my dairy farm. It is a true work horse as it hauls the manure spreader, m-m 5 bottom plow, bales hay, and it even hauls single wide and double homes around.

  • the minneapolis-moline g1000vista is one of the best looking tractors that was ever made in my opinion. i've always had trouble understanding just how MM went down. it had to be just plain bad management because my experience with the MM brand indicated they were of top quality and durability, two things farmers find necessary in their equipment. no matter what the configuration the g1000v is just a very fine looking machine!

  • MM's just have wicked power. I used to own a Super M670. Talk about power to spare. It was only a gas, but that thing really hauled. It was really heavy compared to other tractors ots size, but it made up for it in horsepower. Nothin' like throwing the T.A. back when hauling heavy loads and listening to that monster beller!!!

  • Have any of you see a twin minee hitch. It was made up of two 1350 mm"s The frount axle was removed on one hand controles put on it! Hooked to the back of the first one. Combined would pull a twenty four ft. disk& a field cultervator& Hairgator at the same time. Also pulled a ten bodom plow! Thats right 10\16 plow in 1973! It was known as the Fecht boy's M&M hich Owned by Donald & Roger Fecht OF Carthage,I.LL It was great to see it run. They used it that way for about eight years. It is still talked about to this day. That was over Almost thirty years ago If you got one better than that I would love to hear about it. Farm kid at heart. Bob Wolfe Phx,AZ

  • I've owned a G1000 for about 5 years. It is a workhorse. The 6 cyl diesel starts easy and provides much more power than my JD4020 could even think of doing. Other than fuel consumption I see no reason why they do not continue to be a cost effective popular tractor. I generally use this one for spring field work and later for round baling hay.
