You guys are all great help so I was wondering if you could help with decoding MF numbers.

I have been looking and have figured out that a 8 10 14 16 must be the hp rating, but what does the second number note?

Any and all help or answers is great.

I not sure, but what i figure is that it is just the size or capabilities of the GT the 85 is gear drive and is not designed for ground engaging attachments, the 1200 through 1600 are gear drive with sleeve hitch, the 1450 and 1650 have a hydro-static trany and hydraulic mower deck lift and three point capabilities, the 55's are the same as the 50's but physically bigger. Hope this helps.

If it's the one in Yarmouth I think the seller wants a little more then it's worth. Last time I asked he wanted $1500, and it's been for sale since October. It does have a 3pt hitch and deck. I won't go any more than $1000.

Snapper made those Massey's. I know they 50's were hydro with them, and 55's were hydro 2cyl Onan's.

1200 - 1cyl 12hp gear
1400 1cyl 14hp gear (snapper only)
1450 1cyl 14hp hydro
1600 1cyl 16hp gear (snapper only)
1650 1cyl 16hp hydro
1655 2cyl 16hp Onan hydro
1855 2cyl 18hp Onan Hydro

No not that one ....... I did write them they wanted $1000 and were quite rude in their reply....... they didn't have a price listed and when asked what they were looking to get for it they wrote back and said no low ball and $1000....... Doesn't make a guy want to drive 3 hours to take a look.

Not really eh, when I asked they just replied with the price, nothing else.

I know of a guy who had a 1450 up around shubenacadie with a 3pt and 10hp diesel (from princess auto) in it. His price was a quite high, don't know if he still has it. Shoot me a PM and I can give you his email address. I also have a few pictures of it.

That tractor in Yarmouth has been on and off of Kijiji for months now. I thought of calling about it but I got the 314 and stopped looking for a bit. It doesn't look in good enough shape to warrant a premium price.
