I saw this today when I was getting my Wheel Horse there at the scrap yard.
It is Hydrostatic, and it has a Techumseh. I know it is Massey, but not sure its model, guessing 14 or 16. The wheel weights say FMC on them so I bet 100% they are for a Bolens and worth the screwing with the Massey. I dont want the Massey, I gonna give it away practically.

Looks like a Massey MF12 Hydro.

I would at least get the wheel weights.

The weights look to be Bolens style, but great weights, definitely not Massey weights. I have 2 sets of them, but not with any name cast into them. The tractor itself is mighty rough though.

These have FMC cast into them, I didn't think much of that til now though. That means they are worth double? lol

I'd get the weights, chains too. I would pass on the tractor, but you are handy. Convert it to electric.

If you can get the whole thing cheap enough go for it. You could always part out some of what is left of the tractor and sell the wheel weights if you don't want them.

I'd say get it and part it out. There's plenty of good parts still there.

The weights & chains for sure, the rest of the unit you should be able to save a lot of others with. You should be able to eBay the engine parts, rear end, etc. Even the implement lift may have value. This one you can part without guilt as it was headed for the scrapper.

I would go for it.... Personally, I would look for another gear drive 10/12 and rebuild the hydro. I bet if it was cleaned up it would not be all too bad of a fix. I would not pay more than $50 for it, but if you find the right parts tractor, you could make it whole! If not, it would be a serious shame to scrap a hydro, much harder to find parts like rear ends and sheet metal for them. The seat pan, and all the side steps are not the same as the gear drive tractors.

PS: I would go $100 with the weights and the tractor.
