There seems to be several members who are adept at saving some neat equipment from junkyards, scrap piles, dumpsters, recycling centers and the like.

How about we post some pics of our best or favorites?

I've had a good year at my local scrap yard but there is another guy that keeps getting there just before I do. Here is some of the stuff:

Posted Image
This is a big Jacobsen that had a broken axle and cost me $105. Had a 20 hp. Kohler, frt. and rear PTO, power steering, Hydro lift and three point lift. extra front hydro outlets and wheel weights. It's the same as a Ford 195.

Posted Image
This did not look this way when I got it from the scrap yard but was rusty and tires flat, tailgate was pretty bad too. Got it and a yard roller for $40

Posted Image
This 1996 Toro 269H came with a 52" recycler deck and 48" snow plow for $105. Too bad the hood is missing but has Hydro lift, cruise, foot controls and a 20hp. Vanguard, Rear ags and two chrome hubcaps.

I've also two sets of rear wheel weights, a set of Bolens frt. weights, a 42" JD center grader blade and more but I just can't think of any more right now. If you aren't going to scrap yards you are missing out on some really good stuff for great prices.

The MF14 and MF16 have the engine rotated 90 degrees and no side shaft. I am not sure, about the MF10 having a hydro. Thus my guess is that this is a really ugly repainted MF12 hydro. Has the Hydro lever and no variator lever.

You are right about it being an MF12 Hydro, and everyone on the forum agreed that it was really Ugly, in fact, it won the Ugly Tractor award this month LOL. Alan is the current owner, and more deserving of the prize than I lol.

I want to personally commend Alan for having pity in this poor ugly tractor and for saving it from the perils of lost tractor souls in the scrap yard. :)

If you don't mind a little clarification, I technically was the one to save it from the scrap yard, then I sold it to Alan because I had no desire to learn how to fix another brand of tractor (already have several I don't know how to fix lol).

Not a problem, I just hate for someone to have incorrect information, especially when I was the one climbing thru the unstable pile to wrap the chain around the tractor lol. I am just glad I was able to save it from destruction, deliver it to Alan, and get to see it win Ugly Month. You can't beat that kind of a success story in my opinion. :D

Uh, Ryan may have to get in line LOL. I named it 'Scrap Massey', the forum named it 'Ugly Tractor of the Month', and didn't you call it 'Ugly Girl'? LOL
