Today I stumbled on a weird one, a guy 50 miles from me says he has a MF12 Hydro, factory headlight kit in the box, deck, blade, and a 540 RPM front mount PTO. I thought about buying the PTO for the heck of it (I'd buy the whole mess if he came down on price). I've only seen the PTO in advertisements, what's one worth?

If you have the cash I would buy it all. I don't know how much he is asking for it all but just the pto would be worth some good money. That is the first one I have even heard of being mentioned other then seeing it in the ads.

Last summer my neighbor told me he had looked at a MF12 for sale for $400 a few miles away. He said it had a good deck and a massey generator mounted on the front. I wanted to go get it but my neighbor said he was going to go back after dinner and make the guy an offer. I told him to let me know if he didn't make a deal, that I wanted it. The next night I watched for him to get home from work and asked him if he got it. He said no he changed his mind. I flew over there and sure enough it was gone.:sensored:
Suddenly I didn't feel so bad about all the times my dog sh*t in my neighbors yard.

Oh I get it, it was more than $300.00, so you say 3 something, something. We could make a new code like pig latin, lol

The guy said he wanted $800 for all of it, when I kept asking him his price over the phone. I apparently had a long pause, he then asked if it was too much. He then said come and look at it and talk tractors with me. I can't swing $800 right now, I'll go look at it and see what happens this week. The way it sounds I need to score the PTO.

On a lighter note it appears I have worked a good deal on an unseen MF10 variable speed and deck, that comes with an optional picture window in the side of the block. I need to come up with a starter generator for a 64 JD 110 to trade him. Now, I just need to figure out what was correct for the machine, it was missing when he got it.
