Thanks to all who replied to my rambligs...
I will post pictures of my new toy (MF 10) soon,
and, being a newbie, i have more questions,
what kind of transmission/axle is in this MF10(it is a 4 speed variable speed), i'm asking cuz i have a JD 111 with an 806 E peerless 5 speed that seems very 'weak', the input and crown gear i think are toast in it. (lots of funny noises when i let out the clutch in any gear)---
I actually got this MF 10 bcause I found the JD a little too flimsy---I do realize it is just a lawn tractor and I hope I do not offend anyone with my comments. As a matter of fact the little Deere is in exc. shape and I will post photos of it as well as soon as it is back together,
sooooo many more questions ........

also, i got a snow blower with the MF 10, and do not really want to keep it. My questi on is -what is it worth? (looks ok, and of course i will check it all out)

I think it is a Peerless Model 2309A. At least that is what is in my MF12G and I think there should be no difference. Good luck with it.

George.

the mf10 trans is very popular look for a john deere 110/112/200 series trans

the blower is worth what someone will pay. $25-250
for a blower in working shape, with 80percent of its oringal paint id put it up for $150

thanks,
one other reason i asked about the price is that here-in manitoba Canada, people are selling snowblower for about $750.--i find that a little (well actually a lot) too much.
of course , maybe they are not selling them for that but are 'dream listing'....

oh oh, (to the good luck with it comment)
the seller said it worked fine, never abused(of course), etc...

Trying to buy anything for a reasonable price around here is just about impossible, Zolt. Also, Massey stuff seems pretty rare here, which is weird given the history. You could likely advertise it on Kijiji for $500 or $700 and see what happens.

Sorry - I should have been less cryptic. I was simply wishing you luck in your restoration! - the MF10/12G transaxles do seem pretty solid.

PHEEEEWWWW!!!!
since i see it again in your reply, you wrote -MF10(which is self explanatory) but the 'G' after the 12 ? i'm asking cuz i never see anything after the 10(at least not yet),
again, i am very unfamiliar with garden tractors in general so my questions will be 'bringing smiles, or eyes to the sky'

The 10's were only available in a "G" or geared model. The 12's started as "H" or hydro then MF switched them to a "G" model in the later production, after they introduced the 14 and 16 which were hydros. So, no need to put a "G" after a 10, because they all were G's.

This is exactly why i jumped on this MF10, thinking that by spring it will be long gone---
and it seems not too many other brands except JDs...
thanks for reply-
i should figure out a way to search 'areas' for certain brands- still i suspect Deere would cover most of MB

Yeah. I'm not much a brand loyalist when it comes to tractors, but I ended up with Deeres mostly because it seems to be either that or Kubotas around here, and the Kubotas are even more outrageously priced. There were a fair number of Masseys in Saskatchewan when I was a kid, so you might want to widen your search to include that.

I actually like the cub cadets as well, seem to be well put together and not too pricey....
