I had a guy call me and said he has a MF 12 tractor for sale. He said it ran when parked tire went flat so he put it up on blocks. He said with a little tinkering it should run and he is asking for $75. My question is are they worth anything running and cleaned up? He said he thinks it is complete but wasn't sure on the year of the tractor.

Yes! All the MF number series tractors are worth restoring IMO. Even the 7 and 8 LTs. 75$ is a super deal for that. We don't see many 12s up here. Mostly 8,10 and 16s.

I agree with others....If you haven't picked it up yet, you need your head examined!!

The MFs in my opinion is one of the more desirable classic garden tractors. They look more like their big brothers than many other brands from that time period. Being from Iowa you might find it interesting that they were made in Des Moines during that time period.

$75 is a great buy even if it doesn't run. Most of the ones I have looked at are in the $300 and above price range.

Even I would take that deal, and I'm not a Massey collector!
This is the best proof that it is a good deal: one of the biggest Green guys telling you to go get a red tractor!

I think I am going to go over Saturday or sunday to take a look at it if it is in decent shape I will probably buy it Then if I decide against it just sell it or part it out He only lives about 40 minutes away

If it's complete, then there's no way I'd pass on it, even if it's rough.
