Here are some pics of the AMF 1010 I traded for a Cub Cadet 122. Don't know much about them; are they rare? It has a temcuseh hh100 in it. Runs good but it needs the carburator cleaned.The pretty concrete weights came at no extra charge. :rolling:

Congratulations on the tractor. I'm not sure how rare thay are but they are certainly less common than the MF10 which is very much the same tractor. That one looks like a really nice example. Those wheel weights are priceless!

Nice tractor. Guess that's one way to add weight, but I would be concerned about the lime in the concrete and those wheels. Over time, concrete additives will eat thru rebar.

Calcium chloride will eat through rims a lot faster than the additives in concrete, and that takes 12 years.

I wouldn't worry about it.

I like the tractor and the wheel weights. Now, the PO could've done it a bit differently and had something more aesthetically pleasing, but they are definitely functional and it is a tractor, after all. Good find.

Thanks for all the nice comments guys. I cleaned the carburator and adjusted it today,still won't run quite right at idle though; then I did some mowing with it. It worked very well. I don't know if the concrete weight's have done anything to the rims or not as I haven't had them off yet.

A beauty! And very rare from what I have discovered. Recently bought my own, finishing rebuild pics coming. Because MF bought AMF they are basically the same. However, MF can't say their sister division made motor cycles - Harley Davidson.

I'm in the process of making mine a temporary working unit. Having issue with belt jumping off when I try to mow in third gear. I mow 3.5 acres. Just finishing up a deck update with new bearings, pulleys, blades etc. can't find blades though. They are 14" with rectangular opening. I'm planning to buy 5/8 hole style and machine out to fit. Anyone have better idea?

Also on the hunt for a front blade and snowblower, should anyone have such attachments.
