MF12/MF16 Accessory Questions...
Posted June 11, 2010 - 09:50 PM
I have to tell you…I love this site. I have been reading all the great information here over the last few days and let me tell you …. You guys are great.
As I mentioned in my last post, I recently purchased an MF12 Hydro (S/N 1446507968) and an MF16 (S/N 1944200589) and cannot wait to restore both tractors. The tractors came with a Snowblower (Model 620 SN#1458 003 484) and a tiller (Model 550 S/N 2061000027). I have attached pics of both tractors for you to view.
MF12 looks like it’s a 69’
MF16 looks like it’s a 75’
I purchased both tractors from the same individual and was told all the accessories were for the MF16. I am beginning to doubt this statement because the blower seems to match up to the MF12 better than the MF16. I am almost certain that I am missing some brackets because it seems none of the accessories match up perfectly to either tractor.
Can anyone tell from the information that I have provided above, which tractor/s these accessories were made for? Additionally, I have checked some of the manuals on the site and although they have helped out a great deal, they don’t seem to be exact to what I have. All of this is part of the fun of restorations but sometimes it becomes a little challenging….
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Would one of you guys have a pic of your blower or tiller mounted?

600 series attachments are for the 10/12
500 series attachments are for the 14/16
the 550 tiller is for the 16, its got a roads long belt that runs underneath to drive it
the early 620 blower should have an engagement rod to tension it up, belt runs right from the crank
you can go to agco parts .com or something like that and login as a guest and it will show you a breakdown

They seem to be all origianl and complete. I gave 500.00 for the MF12 w/ mower deck and 1300.00 for the 16 w/ tiller, blade, mower, and snowblower. Although, it looks like the blower is really for the 12. Both tractors run like they are "new". It looks like I will need to fab up some brackets though to make blower work. I don't think they are all there. The blower is in almost "new" condition, the paint is barely scratched off in the shute...

I did run into 1 snag, the pulley bracket will need some attention. I found a couple cracks in the casting so removed it from the blower and hopefully I can weld it up with nickle...well see how that goes.
I am having some difficulty with how the shute is supposed to work. I am sure I will figure it out but if anyone has any input on this, I would love to hear it. It looks like the cable just wraps around the shaft?? I don't see a pulley or anything to help control where the cable goes??
Anyway, here are some pics of the MF12 so far....
Thanks again for all your help!

Have you had any luck with getting the pic of your blower shute? I messed with mine again this evening to see if I could come up with something that worked. Just not having any luck. Thanks for your help.
