Sorry if there is already a thread about this, looked, but I couldn't find it!?

Wondering how close are the MF 16 and 14 to each other?
Is the only difference the motors?
I have a 16 now, might be picking up a 14 soon? :))
Just would like to make sure their interchangable parts first!
thanks a bunch

perfect,
That's what I thought,
I have a MF 16 now in good shape, just found a 14 that the guy is willing to trade straight up for a Yard Pro 18 hp that I have sitting around for a year, works and everything, I just like the massey's better!
SO going to pick her up soon!
Sweeet!!
Il post picks when I get it here

Be sure to shed a tear and act like you're loosing your best friend so he'll think he made the best deal. Who knows, he may have something else you want to swap for.

Agreed, but don't be in a hurry to use parts off of the 14, restore them both and you will have a sweet pair.:thThumbsU
:ditto::ditto:

Oh yeah!!!! An absolutely awsome set. There's not many left.

He broke the ramp to get his wheelchair on the MF 14 so.....
JOKE!

Ya I feel A little guilty! :) ....

The 14 comes with mowing deck, blower, chains, and wheel weights, and he's got all the manuals!

He said he payed $1800 2 years back, but he said he payed too much...
anyhoo ended up he had a yard pro sitting in the yard, and he needed parts for it, so mine is the exact same!!

Anyways, going to get it tonight before he changes his mind!

I plan on keeping the 2 of them running! Il post pictures when I get them!

Picked up the MF 14 last night, it's in very good shape, runs great, only thing the trottle line doesn't work, stuck as I think it's slightly bent where the rod comes out the line ? Makes sence?
Anyways The tractor has been repainted with I would say a spray paint, so it is hiding some of the rust. but it looks very good. Still have most of the sticker on.
Manual even had the name of the guy who bought it on aug 12, 75.
I Got a wicked deal, and the guy I bought it from also was extremely happy with the Yard Pro as it's in way better shape then his, So i guess we both got great deal...can't complain with that! Not a penny exchanged!
Tryed it out mowing the lawn, and the deck works very good!
I'm very lucky to have a MF 16 and 14.
Don't mean to brag guys...just very lucky finds I guess!!

Well Finally got to take a picture, was fighting with the daylight a bit, so not the best quality pictures!

I would guess the 16 is original paint ?? and and the 14 has been srayed with a spray bomb, they missed a lot of spots!

anyone ever find they strain a lot mowing? Maybe my blades needs a sharpening?
