Got a MF16 last week. Deck, blower, tiller. Has every little bracket and bolt for the attachments. The deck is bent. The grill is bent. The clutch field didnt work. Swapped it out (broken internal winding). Mule drive shaft broke, swapped. Deck works. Didnt try the blower. Tiller works, had to put a new chain on, #50. Runs good. Smokes a little, prolly because there is about 3 qts of oil in it. lol

Congrats, nice find.
You've got everything for the tiller? Under tractor belt sheild/guide?
I'm working on getting a tiller, but all those pcs are missing. If I get it, I may have to
bug you for info.

Looks to be a keeper, Mike. Sounds like you are getting the issues under control. On the extra oil, might want to check if you are getting gas in there, float/fuel pump may be letting fuel into the crankcase.

Great find Mike. The grill looks like it isn't bent too bad and would be able to be bent back into shape. That is awesome that you got all of the attachments with it also. :thumbs:

Looks great! Likely a 76 model with the footboard extensions. And the headlights even work!

That sure is in nice shape. It's always nice to get attachments like tillers with a used tractor.

Yes, all the brackets, belt guide. Even the kickstand for the snowblower! If you need any measurements let me know.

Mike, that's fantastic. Sounds like a survivor to me!

What model tiller is that? I saw one sitting in the weeds couple of weeks ago with a MF14. Guy will not discuss sale of it yet. Still has hopes of using it in his golden years.
Mf550 with two extensions. I think the manual says 44" cutting path.

Good luck with the search

Yes, it is. Especially when there are all the misc parts and what not that get lost, and go their own way. Usually not with the tractor or attachment
