I have a mostly original MF12 that was a barn find. If PO was truthful, it was bought, then owener died soon there after. It sat in barn for many years. PO bought from Wido and used to pull maple sap cart.
It had no PTO when I bought it.
The Starter and Solenoid both needed replaced.
The deck has new Blades, Bearings and a couple pulleys.
Rust was removed and deck coated with Rust Killer before I painted so the surface is not bondo'd perfect.
It mows nice.
It has usual small leaks of older tractor.
I would like to trade for simlar in Wheel Horse. I do not prefer the newest style.
C series or older.
Implements would also be considered.
I currently have a C161 and 2 GT'14 Project Tractors.
Let me know what you have.
Should be within a days drive of Capital Area of NY.
