I picked up the MF 10's this weekend. One is pretty complete and the other one is a parts tractor. I got an MF-610 deck in nice shape, a 620 snow thrower, and a dozer blade. I also have a MF garden cart in the deal as well which will be picked up in a seperate trip. I will probably be selling the snowblower and the dozer blade but the cart was a pretty cool addition I thought. The parts tractor has a sleeve hitch which is something I really wanted as well. I know they looki a little rough, but I think I can get one of them looking presentable again.

The parts tractor has all the sheet metal for it as well, it was just loose in the back of my truck. The parts one has a cast aluminum dash panel which I assume is because it's older. The S/N's are: 1446 012257 for the "good" one and 1446 003703 for the parts tractor. The "good" one has a pretty nice dealer plate on it as well:

Looks like a good haul. Nice looking 10's. Good job on the sleeve hitch. They are great.

Very nice scenery in the one shot. Must be hard to look at that all day.

Thanks for the view comment. Yup, we are pretty lucky! We bought 24+ acres from my wife's "best friend from schools father" (if you can follow that!) He had one of the bigger dairy farms in the area and when the government paid him a bunch of money back in the early 80's to stop making milk, he used to money to buy up a bunch of old farms. He's land rich but money poor. He gave us a great deal on the land and I built the house and barn myself so we are into the whole thing for a lot less money than most people would think.

Good for you. A nice piece of property is really an important thing in life. It can relax you just being there. Even better to get a great deal on it.

You got a great find. I don't know what you paid but that is besides the point. The 10 with the aluminum dash and probably nose ring should be a keeper for sure. Not too many of them around any more, there are a few guys on here though that have the old 10's. I am jealous because i want a Massey garden cart so bad. :thumbs:

I just reread your follow up post and realized it was the parts tractor with the aluminum dash. Just make sure you hold on to it. Unless you decide you really need to sell it.

I was going to use the aluminum dash on the tractor I fixed up. In fact, I am thinking about using several of the "parts" tractor's chassis as it looks heavier than the other. Is there a database on here to give me an idea of build dates for these by S/N? I've been looking around but I haven't seen anything yet...?

Yep, in the Manuals Section under Massey there is a build sheet depending on serial numbers and we also have the Registry where you can view other tractors and see their serial numbers as well.

I should also add that when you get a chance you should add your tractors to the registry. :D

Couple of good tractors, my 66 is serial# 005183, if you check your 66 you should find also-

no center rib in the frame under the engine
cast iron steering arm
rear plate missing 2 holes for tiller bracket
pointy 0s on the amp meter

There are a lot of differences in the 66 to later years, here's mine- http://www.gttalk.co.../1966-mf10-298/
