Nice. That looks good and straight. Would you happen to have any more pics, particularily of the engine mount areas?
Have you ever seen or know anything about the 3 point hitch that was available for the 7E?


Thanks.I'll get some more pictures sometime this week/weekend.The one thing that i know about the 3 pt hitch is i wish i had one.I just realized I made a copy of an article about the excecutives from legacy magizine.There is a web site at bottom of page legacyquarterly.com.The issue date was vol 1 issue 4/oct 2010.It looks kind of like the sears set up.It has an arched handle coming up from behind and over the right fender to where it latches right below knee joint beside frame.All i have is a side shot none from behind.Hope this helps.

I had the MF7E, and the MF8E, nose to nose today, and noticed that the 8E looked somewhat bigger.
I got out the tape measure, and found that the front axle is 2" longer on the 8E.
Wheel base is the same. Rear axle, also the same.
Rear looks wider, due to the offset on the rear rims of the 8E.

Found another difference between the 7E and 8E.
Headlight mounts. The 7E used bolts going through the cast grill. The 8E
has lugs cast on the grill, that are drilled and tapped to hold the light retainers.

Nice. Thanks for posting those.

Have you restored the MF8E, w/blower, and is that it in the group photo?

It is the one in the family photo. It still needs a little motor work. I have not got the blower restored yet.

You lucky guy you.
To have that original blower is neat.

I'm looking forward to you getting it restored, and put into action.

Hello, everyone. I just joined the forum and this is my first post. I just picked up this little Massey 24 last night (the previous owner took these pictures - I'll take some of my own pictures later today). I don't know much about them, other than they were made by Motomower (thanks to info on this thread), and are really neat looking. I picked it up because the price was good and it was a neat little machine. I guess I'm wondering how rare they are, generally how much they're worth (ball park) and when they were made? I just want to get an idea of what I have. I don't typically collect mowers like this, so I don't really know too much about them. I think it'll look really nice at shows beside my other pieces though. It was restored a number of years ago, and was then hung from the ceiling (it could actually use a coat of paint to make it perfect though - lots of chips and what not). Also, when it was restored, the engine was rebuilt (he only put about an hour of run time on it). Anyway, nice little piece.
