I just picked up a 1655 with a 48 inch blower and a 48 inch rear blade from a guy two weeks ago.He had a 4850 tiller that the pto shaft was in 4 pieces and he still wanted 500 bucks for it.No thanks dont need one that bad.Plus my old ladie would have killed me

Nice try Luke! :laughingteeth:

I have a spare valve set to correct the problem, also a spare 1655 to put it on once I install the 3PH and rear PTO.

Ha Ha Ha! At least give me an A for effort!! If I was you I'd hide that thing under lock and key.......not that i'm gonna make a special trip to your place but its just harder then heck to find these things!! Must not of been many of them sold originally......probably pretty expensive attachment for back in them days?? Anybody know what they sold for new from massey/snapper?? Luke

Okay, you get an A for effort but an F for results. :laughingteeth: I'm not overly worried about hiding it. At well over 300 lb., it'll take 4 big guys to load that puppy onto a truck parked 60' away. It's awkward as he!! and doesn't roll worth a darn. Besides, you're about a days drive away, each way! Hmmm, just how bad do you want a tiller anyway???? Maybe I better secure it!! :(

I fell in love with the 1655 when they first came out, and they're still the best looking tractor in my books. Original price at the local dealer was $3175 for the tractor, $175 for the 3PH, $1500 for the tiller and $2000 for the Provost 48" 2 stage snowblower. All Canadian dollars at about $0.85 U.S. in 1977. I can't remember how much the rear PTO cost (old age creaping up, you know), but I believe it was somewhere around $100. Oh yes, the mower was extra, but I didn't price it. My yard is too small with too many obstacles.

Five years later I paid $6500 for the tractor, blower, tiller and a 5" back blade, all used (237 hours on a disconnected hourmeter) and a brand new cab. For another $400 each, I could have included a 54"MMM and a Johnson loader. I already had a FEL available to install.

Hey Luke I think what he's trying to tell you is that if you buy the snowblower that he's pointed out on CL or have one like it he'll trade you for it for the tiller. At least thats what I think he's meaning. Larry

That is the snow blower I want and i am willing to trade for my 48 inch tiller. If you live close to check it out or know somebody maybe we can work something out. I know the blower is not 48 inch but with some side scrapers it will widen out alright
