Picked Up Mf12h
Posted October 20, 2012 - 04:55 PM
I only bought it for the tiller(s). So this will probably be for sale soon. One of the front tires doesn't hold air, and the electric start isn't wired up. I literally know nothing about the 12H, it's very very different than the 14. I do have a few questions, although I'm sure when I start searching the forum a bit I'll find most of the answeres.
Is there supposed to be a detent for neutral on the Fwd-Rev lever?
Why does the hydro feel so...spongey? Starting to move forward feels very sluggish, reverse isn't as bad. Feels weak.
Does this have a high/low or just one speed?

Might also check the little lever on the bottom of the tranny isn't part way turned.If that was the case, I'd think both Fwd & rev would be the same.

How hard is it to find a gearbox and shaft for a tiller? Would make this tractor an easier sell...

Also picked up a dozer blade from the PO, seem to be collecting a nice assortment of attachments for my old '66 MF10.

You'll need the front bracket for it. Little doo-hickey that bolts onto the bumper and keeps the plow traveling in a straight line. Also has a place for a spring to help lift the plow.
Found a pic that shows it kind of.
Better pics in the manual that's here on the site.

I was already looking at that bracket, the assist spring is there but no bracket. I'll have to fab one. I wish there was more detailed info w/measurements to go by.
