My Executive 8.

Owned it well over 10 years.  The rear end was run low on gear lube until an axle gave out.  I tried to have an axle made but nobody local could cut the splines.

Then my brother found me a parts tractor that had a good transaxle so I swapped the entire unit in. 

That was a couple of years ago. 

Still never have had it running.......

10 years is long enough, I think I'll take it to the scrap yard this week.

No No No,dont scrap that gem way too nice to get melted down. If I had a way to get it home I'd take it off your hands.

Had it apart to oil the Choke cable for a while but just got done mowing with it today.

 

I like it for its simplicity,Massey.jpg

Is that all original? Looks real good. I've mowed with my 12 hydro 3 times now since I've got it. Much more even cut than the XX50 or the XX55 series.

Yes. Original. At least as far as I know. When I got it last year it did not have a PTO. The fella who originally bought it did so for snow plowing I believe. Apparently he died same year he bought it and it sat in barn for years until the fella I bought it from's uncle bought it from the widow to help her out and he used it for a year or two to pull maple syrup cart. In essence if true, very little usage.

 

It took me a while to locate the PTO stuff and I rebuilt the spindles on the deck.

 

I have mowed with it twice.

 

I currently have 4 machines. The other 3 are Wheel Horses.

 

So I am considering putting this on up for trade.

 

While its very nice condition, it does have paint worn in a few places and th eusual surface rust on the flat surfaces. What I would expect from a 40ish year old tractor.

This is our barn find MF8. Original paint just cleaned up a little. Sorry if the pic turns out big I can not figure how to do thumbnails from photobucket

That's a mint looking machine. Congrats on the find.

I've had my hands on about 40 MFs, and only have one original that comes

close. take care of that one. :thumbs:

Thank you! It does have a little paint fading on the right wheels where the sunshine came in through the barn. There is a small dent on the seat back where a roof beam landed on it. The seller pulled it and it's big brother from a caved in barn where they sat for 25 years. My only regret is I didn't get copies of the pics he had from the recovery.people have asked why I don't paint the faded wheels but like the say"they are only original once".
