Hi all, I'm new here. I recently acquired a couple of Massey 10's and some implements. I found the MF10 and 12 manuals, which have been very useful. However, I've not been able to ID the make of the implements. The listing on craigslist had them as Simpsons-Sears, and the leveler blade is (has a serial tag), but I doubt the others are. I spent a few hours online, and couldn't find anything that looks like these. Nearest I can describe is that the method of attachment is like a Brinly, but a bit backwards. On my attachments, the collar is on the implement and the complimentary bracket is attached to the lift that goes on the back of the tractor.

Sorry, the pictures aren't the best and clearly I lack the proper terminology. I may add a daylight shot or two in a few days.

That is interesting. maybe it came from an old walk behind?

I haven't seen to many different style plows. But is that normal to have a middle buster up front and a mold board in the back?
If so what would that be used for?

Yes, Welcome to the forum. I'm not familiar with your attachments but I'll bet someone will know the answers.

:welcome: to GTTalk. I have no clue about the implements, but seem to be from a walk behind.

Welcome to the forum! I will agree on those implements being for a walk behind (two-wheeler). Not sure which one though.

:welcometogttalk:
I, like the others, am unable to tell you brand, but agree with the walk behind idea. Do you know the size of the plow? That may be a clue.

This is the easiest way to measure a plow:

No worries. I take no offense. Took me a minute to figure it out, since I didn't know "middle buster" or "mold board". But I see it now - those are two different implements. A plow and I think a cultivator. I thought about them possibly being from a walk behind, but no combination of search terms has returned an image of similar items. I may be in luck, though. It appears that the bracket that's on the hitch is height adjustable. Pop a couple of bolts loose and move it up or down. For me, I think this means if I have a hitch fabricated for my MF10 that I just have this added on and presto, attached attachments.

That's cool. Someone fabbed an adapter for the implements for the hitch. The holes could be used to set depth the attachment goes to.

I think that's great! Someone had a couple of old implements around and instead of junking them, they invented a way to make them work with their Massey.

Is there a normal sleeve hitch tube behind the added bracket?

:wave: CMBelyea! Welcome to GTTalk! It's great to have you here. Those are very interesting pieces that you have! I have been to a lot of flea markets and swap meets. I always stop to look at the implements when I see them and take pics when they're interesting. That said, I have never seen a setup like that! I hope that you have some luck identifying them as we would all love to have that info. Thanks for signing up!

Sorry gang, I need to clarify - these were a separate purchase, so I'm in the process of making them work for my Masseys. But I think it'll go. Unfortunately neither MF10 had a hitch of any kind so I think a visit to a fabricator is in my future, as not only are they hard to find, but apparently also made of rusty gold.
