I guess I will put in my 1969 Massey Ferguson 7. I got this tractor and other parts tractors and decks for free one day. One deck is in almost perfect shape, other than the paint.. This fella stopped in the middle of an intersection when he saw me with my MF 7 on my trailer. He got out of his truck and ran over to me while I was stopped at a stop sign and asked me if I wanted some MF 7's. I said yes, but then I said , you should move your truck out of the intersection, then I can get the details from you. Any way, I went to his place another day and picked up the stuff. He told me that he had seen me around with the Masseys on my trailer, but could never get to me to ask if I wanted them, so this time when he saw me he just stopped so he could get to me. It was sorta funny.

So this tractor has been here for about four years now and needs to be fixed up a bit and painted. I have an 7hp engine ready and painted to put in it. Some day I will get to finish it, maybe. Noel

Sorry about the pictures, camera is not the best.

I don't have any decorated tractors but I will throw out an entry to keep things rolling. I picked up this 1969 Sears SS12 from a friend of mine. I really didn't have to do anything to it,it was a great running tractor when I got it and in nice overall original condition. These tractors steer so nice it is almost like having power steering,the transmissions always seem to be in good condition and shift nice and tight in them and the Tecky engines get a bad rap IMHO. This one like most of the Teckys that I have owned start and run great. The Suburban,Compact,Custom and ST tractor are all under rated,once again,IMHO.

These pictures were taken when I took the SS12 to plow and disc my FIL's big garden. He chuckled when I decided to bring it over and get his garden ready ( he wasn't familiar with garden tractors or what they are capable of) but when I was done and he had a ready to plant garden he was convinced and happy. This tractor plowed and disced that garden on the factory Sears turf tires with no weight added,never missed a beat and pulled hard doing it. I was very impressed with how strong it pulled and was amazed at the traction the tractor had.
