I went on a 200 mi road trip last night and came home with this 1200.I bought it on ebay.It came w/snow plow,mower deck,4 hub caps and rear mount weight box which is a massey weight boxthat is full of steel scrap so it's got some weight to it.I didn't know the weight boxes existed.I couldn't find any pictures of them in my brochures that I have.I couldn't view the agco parts books today either.I'll try again tommolrrow.It runs great but needs a battery.I found out tonight that with the weight box on back I need to be careful w/the clutch,the froint end comes off the ground about 6". :D The led strobe lights will be coming off the back.

Last night I cleaned up the hubcaps.I got most of the rust off.The one front hubcap really cleaned up nice.The other front half of it cleaned up nice the other half the chrome was already flaked off.The one rear hubcap cleaned up ok.the other looks better than it did anyway.Here are the before and after pictures.

Yes ,It has the rear pto already in it.I think that was an option for these tractors not standard equipment.

I have a friend who collects Wheel Horse GTs and loves to find the hubcaps.  He has someone beat them out (yours don't look like they need it) then has them re-chromed.  His are all show tractors.

She is in awfully nice condition for sure!  I looked at the MF1200 through 1855 on Agcoparts, and found no listing for the weight box.....maybe a nice custom build?

It's possible it's custom,but on the other hand it's to perfect of a fit to be custom.So I'm not sure.I'm definitely going to research it.

Good looking machine. Congrats.

I've never seen one in person. So, it has a 12hp Kohler? And it's a gear drive

tranny, with a drive shaft from the Kohler?

Deck lift lever on right side? Is it the same physical size as a 1450?
