Definitely a great cart. It is in great shape for the year and the tailgate/rear bed area doesn't have a bunch of rust holes like they usually have. Great score :thumbs:

Well, I do not think I have seen another Massey trailer with the narrow wheels. They always seem to have the wide wheels and turfs just like the tractors. I do wish I knew if the trailer used the ones to match the smaller 7/8 sized front wheels or if they used the ones off the 10/12.

Here are some photos of a trailer that belongs to another member. I forgot who owned it, but I want to clone my trailer to match it, so I kept the photos.

Those don't look like the same rims/tires used on the MF 10/12's to me...?

I have a mf641 manual from I think 1969 (5000-10/69). It shows wheelbarrow looking wheels and gives the size 4.30-8 and axle of 1" steel rod. Also the tri logo in these pictures show the moving tractor in the top triangle, so I would think yours might be made later. I don't know when the tri logo was changed.

Oops, I guess that was the other trailer pic, yours does have the moving tractor on the tri logo.

Sorry Bud, I wasn't trying to point out any error, I was just commenting that mine had it....perhaps the one that Firefyter posted is newer than mine...?
