Here are some higher resolution pictures. The tractor is a bit rough, but hey, it is a MF16 and there are not too many around.

Hi Mark
Great little tractor. Did it have a minor carb fire at one time?

It's not that rough. The hood may need some work but the rest of it looks pretty good to me.

That's a nice looki ng Massey. It looks well used, but not too rough. It looks well cared for. Congrats and Merry Christmas early.

Nice MF you have there. :thumbs:
I love the look of them & with the extra Hp, it'll be a real workhorse. How wide is that tiller anyways?


Thank you MH81. The tiller is quite heavy and much larger than my JD #31 and #33 models.

It is a Massey Ferguson Model #550 and is 44 inches wide. Now I need to figure out how it attaches. I do not have a hydraulic 3 point hitch on the back of the MF16.

That is my guess as well, I cannot think of any other reason for the discoloration. After the restoration, that blemish will be gone!

Pretty sure it uses the deck lift cylinder to run the tiller up & down.

It uses the mjd cyl for the deck to lift the tiller. The tiller mounts to the two axles and the upper rear plate.
