The M-M Reliability Survey is an attempt to accurately portray the reliability of M-M tractors. The survey is being conducted by me, Brian Rukes, with the assistance of Tony Turner.
Minneapolis-Moline tractors were largely reliable, but there are a few exceptions. Also, there are a few exceptionally reliable models. The M-M Reliability Survey is an attempt to portray the reliability of each M-M tractor model. However, to make the survey a success, I need YOUR input!
A special thanks goes out to Tony Turner, caretaker of The Unofficial Minneapolis-Moline Homepage, for putting the survey form on-line. Not only has Tony's efforts in that regard assisted me with the survey, but it has also made it easier for you all to participate. Thanks, Tony!!!
I, Brian Rukes, originally started The M-M Reliability Survey to rate all M-M tractor model series in terms of reliability for the M-M Buyer's Guide which I was writing for Motorbooks. Motorbooks wanted the book to have a star rating for reliability, and I figured the best way to accurately represent how reliable all M-Ms truly were was to conduct a survey of owners and users around the world. So, I started the survey, and all responses that I received before the established "deadline" were used to figure the star ratings for each model series for the book.
Since that time, I have continued to operate The M-M Reliability Survey, and I will continue to do so until the day I die. Just like The M-M Registry, I regard The M-M Reliability Survey as a life-long project.
Furthermore, should there ever be need for new editions of my M-M Buyer's Guide book, I will use all of the submissions made to The M-M Reliability Survey in figuring the updated star ratings for the M-M tractors.
I look forward to hearing from you and to receiving your ratings of various M-M tractors for the M-M Reliability Survey!
