Really nice tractor. It's kinda odd seeing an MF in those colours.

That is a MotoMower built tractor (for Massey though), so very great find on that rather rare piece.

Yes, I've done a little bit of research. Duro corp built them for both Moto, and MF, right?
Deck id tag says that, but I have yet to find an ID tag on the tractor.
Anyone know, where they might have hid it?

ID tag is behind the dash, but before the gas tank.

my id tag for my MF7E is right by were the sterring colume goes down. Lift the hood and the part the hood rests on is where it should be. for mine it was on the right hand side i think.

That's a great find Will! Looks to be in excellent shape...and the manuals look like new also! as far as the Cat yellow paint goes, it's better than rust colored and pitted IMO. The PO of my Case SC re-painted it with a paint brush...but it's not rusty :D I also find it amazing that the PO still had the deck covers! Nice score :thumbs:

Picked this up yesterday. 1965 MF8E.
All original except, at some point in time Cat yellow paint was used for touch up.
Runs, needs new fuel pump, and some TLC. Have not had much time with it, other
than to give it a bath. Also came with a 1975 MF8 snowblower.
It's built like a tank, from what I've seen so far.


Yes, a tank for sure. It looks like a different rear axle then the regular Peerless on the later 8's. That is a really nice addition to your collection. Congratulations.

I hate to break it to you Steve, but that yellow is factory correct. :D

MotoMowers use proprietary transaxles (their own).
