You mean battle scars XD They just show that the tractor has done some work, and is ready for more.

I've had our MF 12H for about a month now. Have fixed some minor issues, but it's pretty clean. Recently got a deck for it and am in the process of mounting that and mowing with it.

This is my MF 1650 (Series 2411 & Serial Number 200857) that I use for keeping the grass looking good. Runs perfect and everything in perfect working order except for the PTO, that was disabled before I inherited it. In the last 6 years that I have had it I have rebuilt the drive line & couplers, replaced left rear engine mount (have 3 more), rebuild the mower deck with new wheels bearings, belts, and blades, rebuilt the mule drive pullies and belt, rebuilt the drive line with three new couplers, pins, and hydro fan, replaced hydro filter with WIX 57102 (10 micron) and hydro oil with Mystik JT-5, new seat, new hour meter, rebuilt carb, new lights and paint job. Engine is original Kohler K341-71198 with regular plug and oil changes that currently purrs like a kitty. Well taken care of garage kept garden tractor used for mowing in the summer every couple of weeks, but moving and looking for a new home. If anyone is interested shoot me an email to gharward at gmail. I currently reside in North Austin Texas.

Here, I will add mine in again... Just to keep the thread poking along that is.

Here is the main tractor, she's my mower and snow plow tractor. (should be snow blower this year, though) 1974 MF12G

And this one is my restoration project. My 1971 MF12H... I REALLY want to get this ready to mount the snow blower on for this winter, but I am not sure if it will happen or not. I am having a little problem getting the OV140 to run (granted, not working on it is a big factor!)

She looks more like this right now:

Most of the "hard work" is done, 90% of the tractor parts are sandblasted and in primer. I am seriously thinking that if I can get the chassis done and painted, that I will bolt the HH120 from the 12G into it and run it like that. I already plan to use the grille & hood for the hydro as this will become my "main tractor" in the fleet.

Just to toss it in here, this is my youngest son's MF8 that I gave him.

I have a Massey 1655 with a Johnson front end loader on it, also a MF12G and a MF12H. The MF12G is the first garden tractor I bought about 2 years ago and is what got me started on this great hobby so it will probably be with me until I kick the can or it refuses to stay together anymore LOL.

I am just beginning the restoration process of a mf 10. I have no pictures because the tractor is currently in 4 piles in my uncles shop.

We love pics of whole tractors, but enjoy pictures of scattered parts too :D

Hello all,

I have a 10 and a 12 they both are in great working order. I use one to mow my lawn, and both of them in the winter to remove snow. I have a 620 blower, 630 blade, Two 650 tillers, and two 610 mowers. The tractors and one each of the attachments have been powder coated, so they look very nice. The first 610 mower looked so good I did not want to mow with it, so I rebuilt a second one and spray painted flat black to use on my lawn. I get some laughs from people when I tell them the story. My 10 was the first one I did it is all original (even a new 300$ CDI ignition). When i got it the rear end was bad and someone had let it sit to long and some water got in the motor, so I had to rebuild both. It is a 1970 I think. I ended up with the 12 While I was searching for attachments for the 10. The guy wanted a lot for just the blade and not much more for the 12 and two tillers. The 12 had a broken valve, so it was not to hard to fix. I put the Ed Stoller conversion on it and cleaned it up. I do not have neer as much money in the 12 and it really looks as good as the 10. I think the 12 is a 1975. I will try to get some pic's on here sometime.
