My father and I went to an auction in Marion NY today and I bought a AMF1014. I've wanted a mf14 or 16 for quite a while. The AMF1014 is the same as a mf14 except for the hood,grill, and colors. I also believe this is a fairly rare tractor so I really wanted it. I new it was going to be there and was prepared to bid up to $400. When I got there I found it and checked it out. There was no battery so I couldn't here it run but the engine turned free, was full of good clean oil, showed no leaks and the throttle shaft on the carb was good&tight. The tractor was in very good shape and showed very little wear. It has a mower deck that is in amazing shape and the original seat has no rips of signs of wear. It also has wheel weights(I think they may be bolens) and for some reason it had wheel horse hubcaps on the front. A guy at the auction, whom I presume new the owner said it had been stored in a barn for years. I knew I wanted it so I got in line - a 100ft long line, for a number. It was freezing out but the place was still mobbed. I got my number #318 and the line had grown to about 150ft. When the auctioneer got to the amf I must have looked like a bobble head doll, I just kept nodding until it was mine. :laughingteeth: $500 was the winning bid. Getting the tractor out of there was a bit of a challenge, the sun had come out and melted the frozen ground. The place turned into a auction / bog&grog. My truck and trailer are caked with mud but I made it out- sorry to anyone who was standing behind me. Enough BS, here's the pic's.
