I went on a 200 mi road trip last night and came home with this 1200.I bought it on ebay.It came w/snow plow,mower deck,4 hub caps and rear mount weight box which is a massey weight boxthat is full of steel scrap so it's got some weight to it.I didn't know the weight boxes existed.I couldn't find any pictures of them in my brochures that I have.I couldn't view the agco parts books today either.I'll try again tommolrrow.It runs great but needs a battery.I found out tonight that with the weight box on back I need to be careful w/the clutch,the froint end comes off the ground about 6". :D The led strobe lights will be coming off the back.

I have a friend who collects Wheel Horse GTs and loves to find the hubcaps. He has someone beat them out (yours don't look like they need it) then has them re-chromed. His are all show tractors.

She is in awfully nice condition for sure! I looked at the MF1200 through 1855 on Agcoparts, and found no listing for the weight box.....maybe a nice custom build?

It's possible it's custom,but on the other hand it's to perfect of a fit to be custom.So I'm not sure.I'm definitely going to research it.

Good looking machine. Congrats.

I've never seen one in person. So, it has a 12hp Kohler? And it's a gear drive

tranny, with a drive shaft from the Kohler?

Deck lift lever on right side? Is it the same physical size as a 1450?

It has the k301 12 h.p. kohler.Yes it is gear drive.Driveshaft goes from the flywheel to a gearbox.The gearbox has a pully coming off the side parrellel to the wheels.A belt goes from the pully to the transaxle.The output shaft off that gearbox feeds the rear pto for you 541 pto unit,rototiller and I believe they had a pull behind brush hog type mower that run off that shaft.I think it is the same platform as the 1450,but not positive.Yes that is the deck lever on right side.

I picked up a parts manual for this tractor and was paging through the attachments part of the book and seen they had 2 different lawn sweepers avail for this tractor.I didn't realize massey had lawn sweepers.Now I have something else to look for.Has anyone seen any of these or does anyone have one?

I've came across one. The fellow I bought my blower had one for sale as well. But I had to pass on it and the front blade. Haven't seen one since and that was 5 years ago now. I'd really like to find one too. Good luck.
