This thing has been sitting outside for years, I had to take another one of my tractors with me to pull it out.......It is missing the starter, but is otherwise complete......Pretty rough though....Also came with a snowblower, which is what I really wanted....It is missing the handle to turn the chute, I think thats all thats missing anyways.....

As a bonus, he threw in a Ford LGT125.......Both engines turn over, not seized.......a good days work.

Will probably part them out or sell cheap and keep the blower.....Any takers on that Massey?......Doug?.....Fergie?......lol

If you are going to part the 12 out I will buy the headlight bracket that holds the headlights in.

Don't know what you paid for the MF12, let me know what you need for the whole thing.

Looking at the pictures, that MF-620 seems to be in nice shape. I have the older design where you disengage the PTO to engage the snow thrower and vice-versa. It takes me a storm or two in the winter before I get used to it and a day or two on the mower in the spring before I readjust. The "new" design seems like it would keep the belt tensioned better. I'm not sure whether the chute handle is the same between the designs, but if you want I could measure out the one I have and get you dimensions and pictures so that you could fabricate one. Also, on the old design, a metal loop was mounted to the front left corner dash screw to support the chute handle near the lift rod. You should check to see if it's on the MF-12 before you sell. Also, I have a copy of the manual for your type of snow thrower, I could scan it if you wish.

Thanks...Seems that there area couple of manuals for them in the download section.

The guy that sold it to me said that it had never been mounted on the tractor.......guess they bought it and never got around to it and it just sat outside, losing parts........The whole place looked like they never got around to too much.....When I knocked on the door, there was a toilet sitting in the front hall...I didn't ask if it was hooked up.....lol

Just an update on this thread........The MF12 went to Doug (DH1)......I tore the blower right down, replaced the drum bearings, loosen everything else up, threw some paint at it and put it back together. Bolted it to my MF10 and it works good....Have to wait until Nov to see how it throws snow.......Doug, did you get that 12 going, or is it parts?

Also did some work on the Ford that came in the same deal....It runs, smokes a little......stripped down to the chassis, lossened stuff up, paint and put the body back on.....leaving the body as is for now...I like them that way........seems to work pretty good....The deck was toast, so I scrapped it......

Nice job on the snow blower and the Ford :thumbs: The Ford sure has an unique tube type frame under it. I've never seen one like that before!

The frame on the Ford reminds me of a tube framed hot rod and it looks like it needs a 4 link suspension under the back LOL.

You did a great job Poncho

Looking good there Poncho. On a side note the Ford that I had for a while had the tube frame also and the oil pan for the Kohler is actually part of the frame.
