I bought the M for less than a GT, it's a project tractor looks wise but ran very well and seems to be in pretty good condition. Also in the pics are my AC 5020 and Gravely Com 12.

The M is a nice sized machine in my opinion for around the house, its small, in the pics the tires are set so its about 50" wide yet it has around 21 hp on the pto, has the wide front, this one is adjustable some are fixed. It has live hydraulics (a nice feature) that are position responsive (another nice feature). A couple of things one might consider negatives, the M can be a bugger to get on and off because the operator area is small and the weight of the machine is around 2500lb. This particular machine I bought off ebay for a future project a few yrs ago sight unseen, it came from a collector who bought it for the sheetmetal to put on a special M highcrop he bought in CA. The machine is fairly original to include the 6v charging system and by the serial# is a 49.

I put a lot of miles on an "MT" growing up (same engine & transmission as an "M")!

Dad bought it for a "saddle horse", we had a farm 10 miles from home & needed something smaller to tow behind the pickup to get in when it was muddy. He bought the MT from a dealer for $150 w/ new rear tires (mid 1960's), went to the local blacksmith shop where they built a cart to run the front wheels of the MT into, tie it down & go. We could tow it around 15 mph. Also used it to haul hay home in the summer, as the other tractors were in use & it was a little faster. ~~ grnspot
