Sorry, I don't know, but we used to have one. Single front wheel, 4cyl gas, crank start. I've thought of it often, and thought of trying to track down where it went.

I'm curious now as to how you happened to ask the question in the first place! I'm going to spend some time on here today -- staying in with a cold. I'll do some digging in the antique tractor sites.

here is some info on it but it does not say alot from what it says l'm guessing the tractor was not made by Massey but was up for sale at a Massey Dealer

there is some info in the Massey Harris forum under (did you know that MH merged with MF not the other way around some info on the MH and MF) l hope that keeps you busy all day hope you get over your cold :dazed:

The Cleveland Tractor Company made the same tractor as the General for Monkey Wards after the company was moved to TN. It was known as the B.F. Avery. They also built a very similar tractor marketed as the BF by Minneapolis-Moline. I wonder where they got the model number? M.M. later acquired the company and continued production. I can't follow the latest round of acquisitions.
