Except for the dust on it, this looks like it could have been bought new last year. Even though it's in state it's still a seven hour or more drive for me one way. If it was closer I would have my bidding number waving like a flag. http://montanaauctio...-auction-photo/

That does look nice. It'll be a good starting point for someone, as long as the engine has spark.

Oooooooh, I just saw it has a lift acc'y... Is that OEM?

Bud, did you see everything about that tractor? It has the electric lift option, as well as the tiller, and it is a hydro. Oh, wait, there is no mower deck..........Ahhhhh it's worthless!!

I'd come bid.....Would there be that much opposition? Of course, it's almost 2000 miles......4 8hr days or thereabouts. Hey, what else is there to do?

I believe it is. I looks like the drawings in my parts book.

Not to jump a thread....but I have to ask....my MF10 has the darker grey body and my front grill and side panels are a light grey.....I noticed this tractor is the same way.....did these Gt fade like that?? Or was this original?? I thought they were all the darker grey?? I had figured the po has repainted mine at some point???

Thanks and again sorry to jump a thread........the MF12 is nice....especially with the OEM lift kit on it!

Good question sacsr, I don't know. I didn't think this was repainted as it still has the rubber around the lip on the battery box and the decals on air cleaner and engine.

I thought this one looked original too and hard to believe my po in Pa painted his parts the same color as this guy in Wyoming.
Guess a MF guy will come along that knows the story on the paint. Thanks Bud for posting it......sure love to have a nice MF12 like this one....

You are right.....I guess because my "silver mist" looks so faded compared to the rest of the tractors paint I figured it had been repainted by the Po till I saw this MF12.....I had read Daniels thread a good while back......I even have the paint to paint it!! Just oldtimers setting in.....thanks for the reminder!

That sure is a good looking machine. I wish I could grab it.
From what I know, the only silver mist grey, on the machine, should be the outer grill, and the rims.
The rest shold be flint metallic grey, or red. The grill screen, matte black.
