Has anyone ever seen one of these, or pictures of one?

I've only ever seen them in a brochure.

They have a operator and parts manual. I think these are extremely rare and made 1967-? (70).

There were 3 different MF24 riders.

 

MF24s Deluxe (this is mine)

MF24s    This one belongs to member TimTractor.

I've seen others in pics, and I have a good lead on one.

And then there is the one in the opening post.

Was it on Craigslist, or ?

 

What is your shopping area?

CL. Were there any other brands that sold the same mower under a different label? The picture of the mower is what triggered the memory, not the fact that it is a MF.

 

Minneapolis, MN. CL or the St. Cloud CL which is essentially Central MN.

If I remember correctly, I believe Will said that they were made by MotoMower for Massey. Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

That I don't know. Possibly a Moto-Mower version, as they had one of the Deluxe. They where made

by Dura Corp. for MF, Moto, as well as Gutbrod (they made the Elf).

Yes, I'd like one, as part of the whole Yellow collection.

 

I was just looking over the MF exec brochures, and it only shows up in

the MF7E one, which was only made in 1963.

The 1964 MF8E brochure shows the other version, like TimTractor's.

That thing looks familiar, but as another brand. I will think about it now for a while. Maybe I'll think of where I saw it, or it was something close to it.

Will, when I saw the title I thought you were hunting down some extremely rare 24hp MF GT. After the ELF you captured on the continent and brought back here I thought you might be going on safari for another exotic MF.

Do you think there might be something hidden over in the New Zealand, or Australia?

I've always wanted to go there. :rolling:
