Nice photos. Those 1655's are big! Pretty much the same size as an SCUT

My 1974 Massey 8 my uncle bought new. Still has the dealer sticker on it. sat in a shed for 25+ years. Has the mower deck, just not in this picture. Runs pretty good, still getting the minor stuff worked out.

1967 Massey 10 purchased this year. Son thinks its going to be a puller, im not sure yet. Came with the mower deck. Not running as of yet.

Here is my Mf16, got it with a busted rod. Rebuilt the motor, runs great just no implements for it. This is my oldest on the massey's first pull/play day. Can't seem to find any of my other pictures at the moment

19.JPG 20.JPG Massey Ferguson MF85 

  This is the machine that got me into garden tractors.

  We have 52 acres of land near Warsaw NY, mostly wooded. We were using DRs and Billy Goat brush movers to make and maintain

trail system. Bought this Massey at a yard sale in 2001 to try out. needed a little engine work and the deck was in sad shape, a little patching and welding fixed it, I thought. First usage proved wrong!!!, blades out of sync, do to worn out timing pulley. New pulley and set of heavy duty blades fixed problem, been used ever since, more as a brush hog than mower. great little tractor.

 Just brought home this summer first time in shop since 2008 (replaced original engine), needs another one.

 This got me interested in older tractors and became an accumulator and now somewhat of a collector. have had as many as many as12 and now have 7.Working on a 1962 Jacobson 100A  now, but that's another story for another day. Here's my good old Massey.

I don't have a fleet of Masseys but I got one 12H.  I bought it about two years ago and redid it the winter of 2011-2012.  This is a pic of this springs plowday.

Here's my little fleet...all 1855s, although I guess one is officially a Massey, and the other two are Snappers.

 

The first is my mowing machine...

The second is a parts tractor that came without an engine.  I have a N52 19.9 Onan that I think I may build to put in it.

The third, has a Johnson FEL, and is a brute of a workhorse!!

And, all three together getting their pictures made :)

I like the Sheppard Diesel in the big tractor lineup and the B model Mack with its nose sticking outta the shed.

Here are a few showing our recently acquired 1977 Massey 1655.

 

She needs a ton of work to bring her "back from the brink", but overall is very solid. Used it today to move a "baby" barn that will be her new home; tonight will probably be the first time she ever spent inside. 

 

Found an old Hobbs hour meter in the basement and figured out how to take it apart and reset the numerals; the old girl now shows just two hours run time................hahahahahahaha
