Ryan and I finally got the time to change the muffler on the MF10 today.

We took it a step further and checked the decibel level between the two.
Here is "before"

And "after"

The new muffler is 3db quieter than the old one... That's half as loud in geek speak.

And it looks good too!

That is awesome! I am sure that is even better than a factory deluxe muffler! :thumbs: Still can't believe how  great of a job Steve did making that!!! :worshippy1:

 

Thanks for the video Alan.

Isn't it nice to know people.  That does look nice, could it be worth more than the tractor.

:D Not to my Kid :D

 

He was a grinning for quite a while. 

Even took it for a half hour "lap". Said his ears weren't ringing at all.

 

Proud kid, tickled pink.

Looks good Alan, Having such a nice looking, chrome muffler should give you another 10 HP.  :rolling:  :poke:

I think it is safe to say that we are all fascinated with shiny objects. :D

Thanks to Steve we can all equip or tractors with permanently shiny objects in a usually rusty object location. :D

Great work.

That does look good on there and I'm really glad that he's pleased with it! Thanks for the "noise reduction testing" and for posting the results! I'm gonna have to put you in charge of my PR!
