Since you like the same style as I and may others do you will not be disappointed in the MF 14 or MF 16
Both basically the same but different HP
The MF 14 would be more popular than the MF 16 since it was produced for 2 years only.
The MF 14 and 16 are hydro only, great working machines when working properly
All mine are hydro's and wouldn't change for anything
The hydro's are better for snowblowing, ground engaging equipment due to its infinite speed selection
About the only drawbacks on these are the hydraulics,
There is a hydraulic lift for all the attachments then a separate cylinder to operate the optional 3 pt hitch
Have to use a lock out strap on one cylinder since they are hooked together.
If you went with the newer series the 1450 and up is what you want
different style, same size as the MF 14 and better hydraulics
If you can get the 1855 you will definite be impressed when working properly
I have 3 MF 14's and a MF 1450 in the herd
I have all the attachments for the MF 14 so need a few of them
1 is my blower, tiller, mower tractor
1 is for the dozer blade
The first one I got is my show tractor with factory Cat 0 3 pt. hitch and is my avatar picture
I have a Brinley Cat 0, 12", 1 furrow plow for it that goes to the shows and gets used if there is plowing available
I am not familiar with the smaller MF line up
I got a MF 14 package deal that got me started into Garden tractors so I haven't strayed away from them.
Attached is my show Massey
It has 3 rib front tires now and 23.5 x 10.5 x 12 rear tires
