The first Massey-Ferguson garden tractors, the yellow "Executive" series, appeared in the early 1960’s, and were made by the Dura Corporation, who also made the Moto-Mower and early Porter-Cable tractors. In the late 1960’s the firm came out with the red and gray 7, 10, 12, 14 and 16 models, designed to look like the big Massey farm tractors. Some of these tractors were made by the Badger Northland Company in Wisconsin (Badger was at that time owned by Massey). AMF also made some of these tractors and sold them under their own name in blue and white colors. During the 1970’s Massey come out with the 1000 series tractors, which were made by Snapper. In the early 1990’s, Ingersoll produced Massey garden tractors. In 1993, AGCO Corporation purchased Varity Corporation, which owned the Massey-Ferguson tractor line. After that Simplicity began building the 2000 series Massey-Ferguson garden tractors at Port Washington. Therefore, currently produced Simplicity, Agco, and Massey-Ferguson garden tractors are identical except for paint and decals.

Maynard,
I know that the MF14 and 16 were only made 2 years, I think. Did AMF make the MF tractors during that time? I see AMF tractors for sale from time to time, always wanted a MF16.
Thanks, Brian

whats harder to find danamark parts or massey parts ,that 14 looks like some parts would definitly fit my mf-14
I believe the Massey MF14 AMF1414 and the Danamark 14 all the same basic tractor.

The model 1414 is not the MF-14, AMF model 1014 is the same. I would love to see the serial tag on that Dynamark. I did have a blue and white AMF model 1010. Please see AMF thread. Wheel Tire Toy Automotive tire Locking hubs :wave:

I have been unable to locate a replacement belt for an AMF model 1010 drive belt. The belt goes from the motor to a variable speed cluch?? It was marked with MF but could not read the numbers. It was 3/4" wide, 38" length and 7/16" thickness,. If anyone knows where such a belt can be located I would greatly appreciate it.

I believe these belts are still available thru your Massey Ferguson / AGCO dealer. I do not know if the belt is the same for the John Deere that used a similar system. Someone here may be able to answer that question.
