In May of this year I entered into the world of Garden Tractors. I was looking for one to snowblow the driveway.

I came across this package on Kijiji that was not far from me, Seller was thinking of scraping it but decided to put it on Kijiji instead ( Thank God it didnt go for scrap)

The package included a 1974 Massey MF14 with factory 3pt hitch (lift cylinder and hoses missing)

Massey Snowblower, Massey Tiller, Mower Deck, Massey Dozer Blade and a Brinley 3 pt 1 furrow plow.

Cost of package was 200 Canadian dollars

Had a cylinder in the shop that would work on the 3 pt hitch and had new hoses made up so now 3 pt hitch is in working order

Tractor has been repainted and new decals applied

Mower deck needs new bearings

Snowblower needs minor metal replacement on bottom edge

Dozer blade just needs repainting

Tiller is free but do not have a belt to try it

Brinley plow is all repainted and ready to use once i get weights and chains

Attached pictures are of all the goodies i got in the package

Last picture is the Massey just after applying the decals

I was real happy with the purchase

Jim

:wave: Welcome to the forum! That's one way to get started! But, you'll need another tractor before long!

Thank you

Yes I know I stole it you could say.

Have heard of these deals before but never was lucky enough until now.

Was a real affordable way to get into the hobby

Need to find decent land to try the plow out

That looks like a nice 12" plow! Shine up the moldboard some before trying it out.

Glad you got yourself a good deal & :thumbs: on giving the girl a great new home.
If you cant find the turf you need to try the plow out and decide to go to a plow day, there are several members who come down for one here or there. It's been my experience that there are helpful people at these events and someone is always willing to spend some time with new owners to make sure they are getting a decent furrow.

For Plowing, you will be needing weights and either chains or ag tires. I would suggest chains as they will work year round with all your attachments but the ags are better in the non frozen months.

I think you made a really good deal, and the MF looks very nice now that you painted it.

Oh, :welcometogttalk:

you can have a small machine shop make new spindles. Round stock for the shaft, flat stock for the plates. Machine to size, weld together. To get the shafts off, you have to remove the "pinch" indentations on the housing. I had some friends make mine for free! They bow hunt deer at my place in a city (;Legal), I had a bunch of expensive suggestions till I went to them. They are common sense people.
