Went and looked at this beuty last night and it followed me home.My dad saw and add in the local paper and told me about it. I called and he still had it and i checked if i could look at it last night.He said that was fine. I also got a 620 snow blower in the deal.Its not perfect but it turned out decent after a good bath.It has been sitting in a barn for  the last 8 years.It was used to push chicken manure by the original owner. Came with the snow plow and a weight box on back.

Good catch. You could mount a 10 hp motor on the blower and mount it on the rear of the tractor.

Well, if he never bothered to clean off the crap, best check the air filter and oil conditions too!  Power wash sure made look better. Would have had to pay more of that clean from seller, heh! Keep the blade on it, blowers don't work as well in my book. 

 

Looking back at pictures, WHAT is all the metal hanging off the front?? Man, that would have to go if mine. I see chain to blade, don't see how it has anything to do with lifting??  Isn't this hydro lift?  Will be weight off it, and sure looks ugly when looking at it better. What was that for?

It was his brothers tractor. He past away 6 years ago,and his health isn't the best anymore. He is just starting to get rid of stuff.The chicken poop was washed off it,that was just the dirt from sitting the last 8 years.The previous owner and i both agree that it was probably put there to keep the manure from going up the blade and through the grill.Kinda like when plowing snow sometimes it goes over the blade.

It did clean up good!

Pushing manure all it's life I'm surprised it isn't a total "rust bucket".

I worked at a dairy that got chicken crap from an egg farm, we used to spread it on the hay fields, when done right it is the best fertilizer you can get.But when you stab a front end loader in a pile 300 feet long,15 feet high and 20 feet wide in warm weather you will burn the hair right out of your nose, and probably toss your salad. And cleaning the equipment was REAL fun, you cannot get the stink out of anything.

They would've had to wash it or it would've been rotted out.The one wheel is a little pitted.

I know all about chickens and chicken manure we raised them for a number of years.The smell can get real bad,and the ammonia in the chicken house is the worst.

I had a mf12, variable speed, cool tractor. I Liked the way you could put it in a gear and use the lever to get different speeds.if I remember right it had a snowmobile type clutch.

Nice tractor, cleaned up not bad. Chicken crap is usually pretty hard on equipment.
