Doug asked for photos so here they are. Has a 16 (honest) HP Onan engine. Second biggest Case garden tractor and has a 46" deck. Runs a hydraulic (not hydrostatic) transmission with PTO. It's more small tractor than garden tractor. Extremely zippy and pulls. It should have a red and yellow paint scheme. Weighs slightly more than a 305E.

Hey Dennis, thanks for the pics of this cool Case! What size are those rear wheels? They are some tall ones it looks like. With 16 HP that thing should never run out of power! I assume it is your workhorse around your property. Do you have more attachments?

I never knew that collecting and restoring these things is so popular until 2011 when I came across a forum called "Garden Tractor Talk", hunting for some info about my 2 Massey-Fergusons. It is a great site with a lot of friendly, helpful folks that don't care if you just have an acre like me or 60 acres or more.

First 2 pics are my 1965 MF8 Executive that I have had for near 25 years doing dirt and snow work. original 8 HP Kohler was blown up when I got it. I ran an 8 HP Briggs on it until about 2005 when i put a 10 HP Tecumseh on it. Has a hydraulic operated blade- up and down only.

Pic 3 and 4 are of my 1975 MF12G (G means gear driven not hydro). I got a great deal on it in 2011 for 250 bucks from an old friend. I think I still owe him!! 46 inch deck, and it came with a blade and snow thrower.

Thanks Dennis, hope you find these interesting!
