It's not in hands yet, but we shook hands over the phone.
With manual. My sister inlaw will pick it up next week, and
keep in her safehouse, till they visit in Sept.
I think it's a cool addition for $25.

Sure does look the same.
Cool. That means I can look forward to the "Flipomatic" hamper.

That looks cool! I think you got great deal even if you paid a little more.

Yes I will, once it's home.
I couldn't find a listing on Agco, but that doesn't surprise me.

Quite a bit of money but you my have seen the only other one other than the one that IamSheerwood has?
That is the first MF sweeper I have heard of. Allis is a scarcity as well. I am in big MF and AC country but have never run into them branded as MF or AC before. Seems people just did not buy those things from OEM dealers.

You were quick to snap that up! I saw it 3 hrs after posting and thought it was a bargain, but since I am in Nairobi at the moment I phoned my wife to get in touch, looked again after another three hours and it was gone!

Good luck with it, it looks as though it will need a little sewing, but nothing too bad. I tried a Google search and didn't turn up much, but a reference for spare part brushes, which may still be available. Nice to have the MF-logo on whatever you are pulling.

George.

Yep, I jumped. For $25, and a bit of work, it'll be a nice addition to the collection.

What's in Nairobi?

Thanks for posting the pics. Where did you find those?
She looks happy. I guess, she knows she has the "Flipomatic" feature to make her life easy, once she's done cleaning
things up.

Thanks again for those pics.
I was now able to find it in Agco.com in the MF1855 files.

Will
I ran into a guy at the Chilton show that had a complete accessory brochure that list MFs suppliers and it list it as manufactured by the Lambert Co.
Here's their web site.
