I just brought home my two yes count them two 1650's one with mower and one with tiller and spare parts tiller, my question is should I have gone with an Allis 720 with loader, blower, mower, and blade for double the price that i paid for the massey's?? i got both 1650 for 1500 Canadian. I know nothing about the Allis, kind of sounds fishy to me !

the 720/powermax is in a whole nother class
the 1650 is a good all around tractor for yard and garden work

pics would help in a decision. The Allis sounds like a good deal with all the attachments. the loader itself is worth the price of one of your 1650's. what end of Canada you in?

1500 is pretty high for the two 1650 you bought, but no outrageous, just not any kind of deal. The Allis like Mike said is a whole nuther class of tractor, subcompact tractor. I'd of gone for the Allis, but that's just me. It really depends on what your going to need it for. If you don't have at least 5 acres the Massey are are great if you have 5 or more acres the Allis would have suited you better. I think you really need to go back and buy that Allis also :)

Looking at the pics, I'd say you got a good deal on the two Massey's. The tillers are awesome & HARD to find. The Allis IS a great tractor & the FEL....you can't go wrong. If it's a good running/operating Allis, it would be a great buy & you'd never regret it. Loaders are an invaluable tool that not only do a LOT of work, but can save your back too.

I think you did pretty well on the Masseys. They look to be in nice shape, both have 3 point hitches and pto. You have everyones dream going for you to, a tractor for every attachment so you don't have to switch back and forth!

Now that I have these, this gentleman called, he has an 1855a with a 48 inch tiller and a snow-blower that is still on the original pallet, never been used, he was a Massey dealer in the past. He claims the unit is in running condition need tune up but other wise good to go. he is asking 900 Canadian. I think I can get them for 800. wouldn't that be nice one for every attachment LOL actually I was going to sell on of the 1650 if anyone is interested. I am willing to haul to the American border I go there to visit friends now and then. by the way I think it would come with the spare tiller, from what I can tell the lower chain drive is broke not to much to fix I think even has the pto drive with it.
