Bought this sight unseen back in early March, because the prce was right, and I
knew I'd need some parts to resto the MF8 I already had.
Due to soft ground conditions, I was finally able to pick it up today.
It's in way better shape than I expected.
Not sure about the engine. It was removed for a reason by her ex.
The blower is in great shape, as is the deck.
If I can get the motor running, it's good enough to leave as is, and
call it a survivor. Maybe just give it a cleanup.

That looks a lot like mine. Yours is in better shape than mine was and your deck looks solid. Nice tractor!

That Massey 8 is in great shape. The nose cone looks to be all in one piece too. You definitely got a keeper there even if you have to rebuild the engine. :thumbs:

The snow blower looks like it was barely used if at all.

That one looks good Will, looks like the right motor with muffler, and the snow blower is the front early style mount, don't see too many of those.

I like the Massey. I have one with just the mower deck. I would love to find a snowblower for it.

Great condition! If the engine is savable, it should last a long time as it had the cast liner.

Good luck on the reassembly!
