does anyone know if all the mf16 garden tractors were variable speed, or both variable and hydro. There seems to be a lot more mf 12s around.  Here is a photo of a mf 16 for sale in Ontario Canada for $600  good deal ?  Thanks for any input       mf 16 garden tractor.jpg        gismo

Hard to say if it's a good deal or not from that picture. Duals can put a lot of stress on the rear axles and may end up causing more problems than they are worth in the long run. Generally if it is running and has no major problems it would list for more than 600 here in N.S. It also depends on what attachments come with it.

Gizmo, The one you have pictured, is a repowered 10. 10's&12's have the engine shafts out to the right side of tractor frame with belt drive. The 14&16 are shaft drive inline to the hydro units. hope this helps Shawn

I saw that ad too.

It's a MF10, repowered with a 16hp B&S.

So, it's a gear drive, with variable speed selector.

As said, the 14 and 16, are shaft drive hydro units.

Yes, you're right. It was a belt drive, as Shawn said.

 

In that series/style, the made the following.

 

MF7    Gear and Hydro

MF8       "               "

MF10  Gear with variable speed

MF12  Gear and Hydro

All of those where belt drive, and some where only available in certain years.

Some of the 7 and 8s didn't have electric start. Tecumseh engines.

 

MF14 and 16     Hydro shaft drive. Kohler engines.

 

This link takes you to the pdf showing production years, and serial #s.
