I am looking to buy a Massey 1200, but I can't find much info. on them. Are they shaft-drive? Hydro or gear? The guy is asking $150 for it.

I've never seen one myself, but just took a look over at Agcopartsbook.com

Looks like a 12hp Kohler, shaft drive, gear tranny.

Similar design to the MF1450/1650.

 

If it's running, for a 150 bucks, I think you would be wise to grab it.

If it's not running, offer him 149.

Peerless three speed, I dont think its shaft drive, may be shaft drive to pulley, close to a John Deere 200 series, attachments are going to be hard to find, fair price

Yes, Shaft drive, to bevel gearbox, to pulleys. Much like a Simplicity Landlord, but different tranny.

I don't think it's as heavy as a 1450 is it! More of a HD LT than a GT.

I think your right there. HD LT would be a good way to describe it. I had a

MF85(next size down), and it was fairly chunky for an 8hp.

We see more of the old number series, 8 10 etc than the newer MF's. In the newer ones 1655's seem to be the most common.

I have a 1200 with a 16HP Kohler making it the equivalent of a 1600

 

Both tractors use a Peerless Transmission that is a 4 speed. First gear is a granny gear and very useful.  The tractor is a shaft drive unit to a beveled gear right angle gear box that has a pulley  and belt to drive the transmission.

 

The Transmission is easy to tear down and repair and the most worn component in the transmission is the  detent shafts and balls that denotes shifter placement.

 

Those parts are still available and both shafts and balls can be replaced with about 3-4 hrs worth of time.

 

You will like the tractor  go for it

I really appreciate the info any more you can tell us? I've never seen Snapper version, only their own design the LT 12, 14, 16, and 18, which were disc drives like the RERs

Are you wanting an exploded diagram of the Peerless Transmission?

1200 transmission and drive line.PNG

 

Here is a diagram take from Agcopartsbook.com .  You can go there, enter as a guest, then search for a 1200 tractor, brand name Massey Ferguson.  There will be a list of tractors that have 12 or 1200 in the name, and you will see an exploded parts diagram for several sub systems.

I have the complete Gear box and transmission diagrams and part #'s from the 1200 service manual.

 

I have it saved as a PDF if someone can tell me how to attach it here

 

Or I will email it to someone for their use.

 

And the Peerless Transmission model # is 2339 (07308 5756)
