massey had a small 4x4 garden tractor......its somewhat identical to the ford above.......the massey model numbers were 1010 and 1020. they were available with 54 and 60 inch mid mount mower decks. I'm guessing someone else built these tractors for ford and massey....they all look similar......maybe yanmar????


Hinomoto made them


Yep, I have a 1010, but a 2WD model. They were built by Hinomoto, but have "Toyosha" diesel engines...another unknown name to many.

Who the hell is Hinomoto???? They still produce tractors?

Hinomoto is the name of tractors produced by the Toyosha Company of Japan, which has produced over 70 tractor models from sub compact to small utility. They made Massey tractors during the early to mid 80's. Very surprised you haven't seen them.

Yeah, I'm surprised I hadn't heard of them also! From my understanding talking to a fuel injection repair shop guy he told me the engines weren't very durable and hard/expensive to buy/get parts for? Never had any experience with them......is he right? A MF 1020 with 4wd and 60" mid mount mower would be a awesome machine!! Possibly a better buy then a 1655/1855 for what your getting also!? Luke

I have a 1020 Hydro 4x4 and it is a lot bigger than a Garden tractor. With front loader and flail mower on the back it weighs in at about 4500 lbs. It is a great Tractor and I just got a son for it a MF7.

That IH 4x4 conversion looks similar to what I want to do. The transfer case is pretty overkill though, planetaries from an automatic transmission and some chain and sprockets in a mild steel plate box would be fine. I'm not really wanting to use any china/japan stuff. I am going to make what can't be sourced from american vehicles out of common tractor/implement parts. I want wearing parts to come from the auto parts store, it's way more cost effective. Brutal strength in a small package at a low cost is the key.
