hello fellow gttalk members , i woud like to buy a mf 10 or 12 soon and i would like to know what i should expect to pay for a non running 10 or 12 i know this will most likely very some in different states but i thought i would ask , i know a guy who has a non running 10 gear drive and a 12 hydra speed that he said ran a few years ago , he is asking $250 for the mf 10 with no deck and i think $350 for the 12 which i believe has a deck , just wondering if thats a decent price for either , thanks for any insight on this

If they both have spark, he's a little high, if they don't, he's a little more than a little. Around here, a 10 in decent condition without a deck and running can be bought for 100-200 depending on other things. Last year it bought a 10 with a tiller in "good" condition for $200. I know it was a good deal, but it may help put it in perspective.

Sometimes you are in the right place at the right time.....I paid $100 for a complete MF10, just needed new bearings in the deck....Patience is your friend

Poncho, I think I might have said it before, but you didn't buy that, you stole it.:worshippy1:

To the original question. Big difference in prices depending on your location, is
one variable.
Condition is the other biggy.

Got any pictures.

usually you can get a running 10 or 12 for under $350.00.If it has massey wheel weights and sleeve hitch it would be closer to $350.00.As far as what they are worth it"s what your willing to pay.

Sweet deal there on the blue tractor. It would probably be worth more than that as scrap.

I agree he is high. I bought a running MF12hydra for $150 with a working deck. Turn key & mow! I bought a couple more, a non running MF12 for $100-no deck, and a perfect running MF10 gear with deck, sleeve lift, cultivator, and snow blade for $200.

I think the trick is, to be patient....Don't just jump into something just cus you like it. Wait for a deal to come along, they will come. Keep browsing the ads every day.

Another thing I have done is advertise in Freecycle....I have gotten a few freebies that way......mostly junk, but good source of parts

thanks guys for all the help , sorry i don't have any pictures but i can say that the 10 is in no where near as good of shape as poncho62s mf10 accually its sitting in the woods by his shop , i have bought some stuff from him in the past and he seems like he is willing to wheel and deal so i may see if i can get the 10 for maybe $150 or $175 i would like to get it for less but i don't think he will go any lower then 150

If its been sitting outside, make sure the engine isnt seized before you commit to anything.

Wheel Tire Vehicle Automotive tire Motor vehicle update i emailed the owner and got a photo of the mf 10 , he is now asking $200 for it , what do you guys think of it , i think its mostly pine pitch and such from being outside that makes it look so rough , but it has what looks to be unbroken hood trim which is nice

yeah i guess so and i might find more gts over the winter being there no lawns to mow and get a deal , the farthest left 12 is sold and the 12 in the middle is just a parts tractor which i might add is in bad shape , what would be a fair price 150?

$300 for all 3 in the pic..........package deal
i would but the farthest one to the left is supposely sold the owner says a guy left a small deposit and has not came back , but i don't think he would do a deal like that anyway he trys to get top dollar for most stuff

I think $125.00 would be fair $150.00 tops
yeah that sounds fair , i don't quite know if he will go that low but it can't hurt to ask

The one that is supposedly sold is the only one worth much.
