Thought I would share this e-mail I received. That Kubota powered MF-8 is just too freaking cool to not share! :thThumbsU

I've 2 MF8's,both from 1974.
I've restored(restoration) the first one,after a fully burn-out.
Gasoline engines are not my favorites.So I build in a 50-years old Kubota knd3 diesel.These tractor works twice a week.
The second one has a broken rear gear box housing.So I keep this for replacing parts.
The MF12(1978) had also a complete restoration and a brand new diesel 10hp(made in China).These one has no longer a mower deck and no attachment for a deck.I use him to pull different things.
I bought all 3 of them in the same region of Holland(the Netherlands).This means that in that region a dealer imported this MF from the USA to sell them to rich people.
At least,I've a Homelite T-10 from 1975 in excellent condition(including mower deck) with only 360 operating-hours.

Greetings,
Karel Quirynen,Minderhout,Belgium

WOW!! Those look great!

That kubota diesel looks enormous in that MF8 and the China 10 looks dwarfed in the MF12. Did he say the horsepower of the Kubota?

-MF8:the Kubota has 3.5hp,hoppercooler,horizontal long cylinder.With his big flywheel he's much stronger than the origanal 8hp Tecumseh and his noice is super,a real tractor with really smoke.I had to lift up hood etc. with 5 cm=2 inches.
-MF12:the posted picture is with a Honda 5.5hp.Now he has a China 10hp diesel.Just great!

That's some really nice work you've done there.
I see how you raised the hood from the bottom.

How many hours you figure you've got into it?

Any idea of the weight?
