With the help of Eric Stader (Dropped 82),I have another of these rare tractors in the garage. A tractor buddy of Eric's and mine both told me that he had one after finding out that I had one. He is big into Deere and Cub's but found this 1414 at an auction and rather then let a junk man buy it cheap for scrap,he bought it and hauled it home. Doug hadn't had time to get it up to me and I hadn't been able to get it so when Eric went down to Doug's place he hauled it back to his place and I ran over to his place and picked it up. Thanks Doug Effing for a great tractor and thanks to Eric for helping me get it home.

Congrats on the new to you AMF. It is nice to see a couple more floating around out there. I also think it is great that they have a beverage holder. They might possibly be the only one of the time frame to have a cup holder?

Nice tractor. Looks really well built. I've never seen one and I don't think AMF were sold here on the east coast of Canada.

Thanks guys. NUTNDUN this thing has all sorts of unique features for its time. What makes this model so rare is that it is a stand alone model. Most AMF tractors had Massey or Dynamark counter parts. this one did not. The frame,front axle,dash,fenderpan,transaxle,etc are all unique to this model.With the research the I have done I have only found 7-8 of these tractors around the country. Alc the cowl is plastic and the fenders are fiberglass. Best I can tell the tractor is a 1969. It appears this tractor was built for only one year. The highest serial number that I have seen was in the 900's. I have serial number 6 and the one that I just got is 900 something,I don't remember it exactly without going out and looking.

Congrats on the find.

As I mentioned in your previous thread on the last one, there was one for sale locally a few years ago. Someone on MTF had one at the time and as you said, we couldn't find any other counterpart.

Refresh my memory. Does it have a Kohler? Are you basing the year on the engine date? Also what brand/model hydro and transaxle does it use? Foot pedal control for the hydro?

I never went to look at the one locally but was extremely tempted. Unfortunately, no room at the time.

Canawler The model 1414 has a K321 14hp cast iron Kohler shaft driven to a single speed hydro. It is the same Hydrogear transaxle as used the the hydro Bush Hog,and early John Deere 140 models.The large pedal on the right is motion control and the matching large pedal on the left is the brake. Yes basing the date on the engines. I have found a few minor differences between the serial number 6 tractor and the later serial numbered tractor such as coil style and one has a disc brake while the other used a drum.I am familiar with the MTF member and have talked with him. Tractorgarden on this forum has one too.These tractors do have a optional CAT.0 three point hitch and rear PTO shaft. This model seems to predate the MF14 / AMF 1014 which would be the closest model to it and is a totally different tractor.

A few more pictures. I really like the factory hood stop setup. Something interesting is they used screws in most areas where most manufactures would have used rivets.
