Last night I got home from a quick 2 day, short notice, road trip down to

NE New York state. I was in Rome NY, and a small village outside of

Watertown NY. Here are the items I picked up.

 

1963 MF7E with Dozer Blade and Snow Blower.

I also met with member TomLGT195, and we swapped some parts, stood

in the parking lot of a TCS in the rain, and chewed the fat for about

half an hour. It was nice to finally meet you Tom. Next time, lets go inside

and go shopping. :smilewink:

Getting my hands on that MF7E has been a long term project. Back in

Dec. just before Christmas, member John (Gav694) brought it to my

attention. It was listed for sale on a UK tractor site. I called them right away,

but they had no pictures. They where going to send me some in a day or two.

Well, that ice storm hit them, and then winter just pounded them. They weren't able

to get it out of the barn, until Monday this week, and get me pictures. As soon as I saw it,

I started hooking up the trailer.

 The nice elderly gentleman I bought it from, inherited it from his father 30 years ago. He

was a small engine/snowmobile mechanic. It's been looked after, and runs great.

His dad had bought it brand new in Lowville NY in 63.

The snowblower has been inside and not used in 30 years. The tractor and

dozer, used very little in those 30 years as well. Rear tires are original, but cracking.

It has the chrome front hub caps, rear wheel weights, and original rear tire chains.

The steering wheel on it is wrong, but I got one from Tom in our trade.

 

I think I'll leave this one as is original, other than fixing a few things, and cleaning

it up good.

Nice Will. That Elec-Trak looks to be pretty solid as well.

Good Stuff Will all yellow tractors. Neat looking Button tread tires on the Massey, everything looks to be in good shape even the Elec-Trak, not much rust. :thumbs:

The Elec-Trak is going to be a learning curve for me Doug. I probably

won't even touch it till July, once I can score some batteries for it.

The right side panel is rusted pretty good, but it's a straight forward

piece to bend up.

First blower, and blade I've seen. I have a deck for my other 7E.

 

I like the string over the hood to lift the lock pin on the blade pivot.

I'm going to add the deluxe optional strings for pulling on the blade. :D

Will, congratulations on the nice haul of NY items.  

 

That's your first Elec-Trak right?

 

They both look pretty decent.  

 

Did you get anywhere's near Lowville, it's great scenery there?

Thanks Dave. Yes, that's my first Elec-Trak. I took Doug's electric Massey

for a bit of a ride last fall, and I was hooked. I'm looking forward to getting

it going. Not sure yet, how far I'll go with refurbishing it. First thing is make

it run.

 

I went to Rome via Pulaski on Wed. and then back up to Watertown via

Lowville. It was raining so hard, and was so hazy, I didn't really see much

scenery. I was focused on the road. Nice driving though.

Looks like a great 7E Will :dancingbanana: , Shame the seller wouldn't post it to me though :D

 

I bet batteries for the GE don't come cheap, how many does it take and did it come with a charger or can you use any?

 

Do you have to make your own engine noises like when you were a kid on a pedal tractor Brmm Brummm Brmmm  :rolling:
