Came across this gem recently! I have been wanting to find a MF 14 for a while since the first picture of me on a garden tractor was one of these 35 years ago. Well the search is finally over. It needs a few minor things but is in pretty decent shape. Glad to have brought it home and put my son on it to try and recreate the same photo.

Nice find indeed! I also am keeping an eye out for a 14 or 16 as I would like a wider mower deck.

Congrats on your find.
It's nice to hear, that you've hunted one down finally.
It looks to be in really good condition. Make sure you hang a picture, of junior on it, on the wall in
your shop.

Just proves again that if you look, are patient, and jump when opportunity knocks you will be rewarded. I'd say from the looks of it you jumped at the perfect time. Nice tractor.
