when MM bought the B.F. Avery company, they already had an"R"series in their line. To avoid duplication they changed to the "BF" designation. The BF was available as a regular double wheel tricycle type, a wide front or a single front wheel.

there is bit of uncertainty about the colors. some yellow tractors have red beneath the yellow and there are those that have been painted the wrong color because the owner wanted it that color. Mine was as a 1951 MM BF and correctly painted Prarire Gold with factory decals.
