As a new member I have to say this is the greatest thing since sliced bread.
Well last week I found a very nice MF10 with tiller and front plow, so nice in fact there will be very little to
Do besides repairing the streering which, thanks to you guys, I have already found the parts on eBay for cheap.
Then yesterday I stopped by a guys house who repairs and sells garden tractors to see if by some chance he had a mower deck. Well no luck with that but he had a MF12 with a snow blower, engine sounds great, but needs a general restoration job.
I'm so excited to pick these up and get to work I mite even give up beer, NOT.
Anyways my mind is full of ideas, one I is to put an electric actuator on the front to lift the plow. There are lots of these available for not not much money.
I also just bought alum. ramps to load tractor into my pickup, anybody have experience with this?
Pictures to come.

Welcome Brad! Congrats on the GT's. I have a herd of tractors but haven't purchased a Massey yet. Believe me I would love to have one. Looking forward to see yours.

Welcome aboard Brad.  There have been several discussions on electric actuators.  If your interested just search the forums.

That MF10 looks very well cared for. Interesting that it was repowered. Is the HH120 a model 120014B? - it should say on the plate on the engine tin. If so, it was a dealer replacement/upgrade.

Yes it is a HH120 repower. The gentleman I bought from is Massey nut, he even painted one of his car's Massey red (yeah I'll try to get e photo). The tractor has been rainted too, you'll notice the frame gray is wrong.
Oh crap I've only been a member a week and I already know this stuff!
