Today I am going to go pickup a Massey parts tractor. He says it's a MF12. If it is I may have to restore it later, but right now it's for parts.

Also there is a GT that has been sitting in a yard down the road for at least a year now, and from the road it looks like an Executive MF. I may stop one of these days and ask about it. I really don't need another project right now.

I still have the 149 Cub to finish, the 5756 DB, the RotoHoe, the MF10, and soon the TriTrac, then I need to start on the 129 Cub.

I also have a lead on a Kinkade and another DB.

I did turn down a MF7 recently because I thought it was overpriced, he wanted $300 and it didn't even run.

Next year I will have a couple of loans payed off and will be able to start building my shop.

My biggest problem is I find more tractors than I got money for.

Good luck, Pat! Between life and the heat, I haven't done much of anything!

Good luck on the Massey(s), of course, we'll need pictures as soon as you get home. ;)

As for the executive, even if you don't need another project, you will someday... get it before it's gone.

It's a ways from the road under a shade tree, I may be wrong and it might something else. When it cools down a bit I might stop.

Well, the good news is that it does not sound like you are going to be bored anytime soon.

I already have more tractors than I have money for. Some need batteries, some need paint supplies, others just need my time. I have none of the above! Maybe this late Fall or Winter I'll get some time/money for them. Right now it's too hot for me to wanna do anything to them.

Update on some new finds.

Well I stopped and asked about the Tractor I have been watching from the road. Turns out its a Sears 8XL. Not quite what I was looking for.

and I also ran across a IH Cub 526 Tiller, I may trade for this one, I have a fairly new MTD I need to get rid of.

Lots of potential in that sears, is it in your yard yet?

The tiller is a neat piece. Amazing how diversified IH got around that time. I found an IH sidewalk cleaner (mini snow "thrower"). I think they called them Snow Brooms?

That Sears looks to have potential. Is the Coke can for size or does it come with it? Cool tiller, would look good next to the Cub.
