I have found a G152 (2wd) w/ 250 hrs, comes w/ Woods 5ft finish mower, rear blade, single furrow plow, sm trailier to pull behind it for $3000. Also am looking at MF1010 (4wd) @1400 hrs. Comes w/ 4ft brush hog, rear blade for $4500. ($3800 w/o hog and blade). How about some advise on which sounds like a better deal. The only thing I know is that MF is a more farmiliar name. I haven't actually gone to look at either yet, but I do plan to.

Assuming that they are both within your budget, I'm thinking that what you are needing the tractor to do would be the major consideration.


If you need/want 4WD then the MF1010 fills the bill.  If not, the G152 looks pretty attractive based on the low hours (assuming that those hrs are correct) and lower price.


Here are the links the both tractors at tractordata.com.  You can at least compare them on paper there.

I think the MF is the better deal if it checks out okay. The hours on the Bolens actually makes me nervous if correct. It has sat unused for a very long period sometime during it's life.
