Taking off from my previous thread on the factory PTO. I went and looked at an overpriced MF12 Hydra Speed. It comes with a NIB light kit, deck, blade, and factory 540 RPM PTO. It apparently runs, but the hood had been munched once and torch straightened, the fuel tank was leaking from rust, and the carb appeared to be off of a John Deere originally. It has the pointy zero's on the amperage gauge but has a standard starter. The homemade concrete rear weights were a nice touch. The $800 price tag is a little much, but that's what we've grown accustomed to around here, people just want stupid money for everything! Pulltilbroke and myself were thinking $500 maybe $600 tops. The current owner won't seperate it, and thinks $800 is reasonable:rolling:.



Pulltilbroke has some pictures of the PTO unit he took for everyone. There was one score though, he spotted a factory Bolens sleeve hitch in the guys parts pile and talked him out of it!

I'll watch that PTO on ebay. That's what I really wanted from the other seller.

I sign for my house on the 16th and can start moving on the 21st. There is a 12x16 concrete floor garden shed out back to store Masseys etc in. It even has a loft! I'm kind of stalling to buy anything until the 21st or later, unless it's a great deal!

I have a MF7-8 out there waiting, the MF7 will cost me $100, it has the MF8 motor, and it runs! The MF8 is a hydra but needs a motor....HMMM, what to do?
