There is a listing for an MF12 Hydro with attachments on ebay. I've attached one of the pictures which was on the site. It shows a sleeve hitch, an MF650 drive shaft and a pair of something, I'm unsure of. Does anyone know what these are and whether they were a Massey Ferguson option or homemade?

Are you sure they might not be the tiller brackets?

Looks to me like a sleeve hitch, and a couple linkage bars for a snowthrower. The gearbox and shaft are
for a rototiller. MF10/12 stuff.

They're not offset, so it's not the 650 brackets. I think Sherwood is onto something.

Sleeve hitch - misc - Tiller drive set up

Looks like a complete package. Just needs a weight box

Pretty sure that Sherwood is correct. The guy has it listed on NH CL for $1500. Made him an offer and he declined. (it's been there awhile)

Thanks for all the responses. I have the older style MF-620 which mounts to the front, not the underneath sled style, so I hadn't thought about support arms. I saw them with the sleeve hitch and had the unlikely thought that they might be some sort of 3-point conversion lift arms.
I am always surprised by the prices MF tractors command today. I bought an MF-10 with sleeve hitch, mower deck, tiller, and snow thrower for $450. about 6 years ago and an MF-12 Hydro with mower deck for $125 around the same time. Over the past few months, I've seen guys selling old garden tractors with Wagner or Danco loaders for $1500.-1800. locally (Western NY) and these fetch a premium, so I'm surprised someone would turn down $1500 for the setup I saw listed on ebay. I hope you wear him down to your price range.
