Sounds like you have a good plan in place!
Kenny,Sounds like you have a good plan in place!
Those pictures are from the Craigslist ad. The guy I bought it from Mickey Mouse'd a Craftsman plow on it. I will be keeping an eye out for a deal on a correct plow and maybe using it as a backup to my Bolens Grounds Keeper for plowing duty, but I think it'll be primarily used for work in the dirt. I really don't know what else I'd like to do with at this point, but that 3 point hitch makes it very versitile. I love all my toys, but I don't use them too much. I just rebuild them and make them look good and then use them only every so often. I really don't know why I bought this tractor actually, other than the fact that it'll be fun to play with every so often.Looks like your using it for snow plowing , I like the turf tires better when putting chains on anyway . Any other plans for it ?
I'm sure most of us use our tractors for the same reason , just to have fun lol . I tell my wife some guys that play golf spend more $$ on a set of new clubs and a season of playing , even if we sell a tractor at a loss after years of use , how can you put a price of the fun it brought us ?I just rebuild them and make them look good and then use them only every so often.

Thanks! Do you happen to know of any Rustoleum or Krylon reds that would come close to matching the MF red?Moving right along. Yes, Rustoleum Wheel Silver paint is a match. That's what I use for all my Massey wheels and grilles.
Thanks! I'll see if I can find a Rustoleum color that is close to the Krylon Banner Red color. I always use Rustoleum and have great luck with it.Awesome rescue & a great job your doing in bringing it back to life. I have a MF12 waiting yo be put back together. Your thread is inspireing. The decal against the red hood just barks. There's something about a red GT that can't be matched especially the Massey's color schemes. Krylon has a Banner Red that is very close. I have heard though their paint tends to fade quickly. Maybe if you give it a clear coat or a good waxing after it sets up good would prevent this. Enjoying your project & keep us updated.
