One of my friends was given a small old GT, I think it's a Massey Ferguson. The only thing I know is that it has a 2 blades mower and a snowblower which I will keep and install on my JD 214. He doesn't want to see it anymore and he's thinking about scrapping it.

Is there any probability someone would want it for parts/restoration or anything else? The tractor is on the south shore of Montreal in Quebec.

Any of you have suggestions? I could ask him to get the tractor and sell cheap it for parts or as a whole for the price of the metal but I don't want this thing to lay around for years.

To keep or to scrap is the question!

A little to far for me but what model is it.

There are a few Massey guys here on the forum that live in Canada. I'm sure some of them will chime in soon that will take it off your hands!

Finally, I will get the tractor soon and I'll be able to try to find what model (and brand!) it is or I'll post pictures of it

If it is a Springfield I have high interest in it.

Personally, I would rather give a tractor away to someone that can use it (or its parts) than to scrap it. I am known to go to the scrapyard and buy scraped garden tractors at the outgoing rate of scrap and sell/give away parts and whole units to some of the guys on here. In fact, I even delivered the dang things!! :bigrofl:

Oklahoma is a long drive Kenny. Besides, I have yet to find a Ford tractor in the scrap yard. (If I do it will become electric converted lol)

Tractor is home, it really looks like an old Massey Ferguson and it has a decal "10hp" somewhere.

So far I don't know much more than that I didn't had time to investigate.

I am wondering if I should try getting it working to use it with it's 36" snowblower this winter or stick with my idea of installing the snowblower on my John Deere 214.

It has kind of a sad looking front parked behind one of my cars as it is. I will take a picture of it.

If it's a 10... and has a snowblower, MAYBE you have the bracket I am looking for! It's one that is custom fitted to the frame, so it can not be used with the JD. Post up photos and we would have a better idea for you. Plus, if it's a MF10, there will be a line of people looking for parts.

Personally... I think if it's a useable MF-10, with a blower, get her running and keep the old girl going! We might just convert you...
