I noted in my introduction that I had just picked up this 1971 Massey Ferguson #7 lawn tractor. I know forums like this are a great thing to have if one has a question or needs parts. It does have the mowing deck. Person I bought it from bought it in 1972. Came with owners manuals. Factory shop and parts manuals. M/F red and silver spray paint. New decals. Old ads. It's original and I plan on using it and leaving it that way.
