condition: Parts

Selling a Snapper (Massey Ferguson) 1855 Hydraulic Garden Tractor for Parts. Has an Onan 18-HP engine with dual range Hydrostatic, 3PH and PTO. Has not run in 15 years and has been parked and covered outside. The tractor did run well, but after the mower deck broke, the tractor was parked and just not used anymore. The front tires are flat from sitting and are well dry rotted. The weather has taken its toll on most of it.

PTO driven Snow Blower is a Massey Ferguson Model MF 4820.

PTO driven Rotary-Tiller is a Massey Ferguson Model MF 4850 and is missing the side cover. (Has always been missing since we owned it) Will sell separate for $650.00 if interested.

• Mower Deck is a Massey Ferguson Model MF 5415 and needs spindles, pulleys and belts. Was taken apart by my father and never completed.

This is not an ordinary Garden Tractor. It is Large and extremely heavy duty and would make an excellent restoration.

Asking $1750.00

That's a very nice super GT and attachment package. Providing the engine and trans. is in good shape the price seems fair to me.

Seems rather expensive for a tractor with a broken deck that has sat (if I read correctly) outside while the tires dry-rotted and died.  I'd start with $1000 and MAYBE negotiate up a bit.

I paid $1000 for the 1855 with Johnson 12 loader on it, just needed a new carb that I got for $239 and a lot of tweaking.

I paid 400 for a running 1855 with mowing deck and 5' back blade.

That is way high IMO for a non running tractor sitting outside all those years and hte deck needs all new parts, that can get expensive trying to find those timed belts

...and I paid $2,200 for this tractor plus $700 fuel AND drove 1,957 miles to get it, and had to put a new battery in it.  It's now awaiting a set of tires, the 3 point cylinder is leaking badly and not functional, and the steering gear box is completely locked up.  (I'm not complaining...I'm simply stating the change in market dynamics of prices a few years ago vs now).

How long ago?  I've never seen a deal like that in the past year or so.  For better or worse, the market has really started to change with these tractors.  It seems the people who are privy to them are buying them up in droves...doing so is pushing the prices much higher and the availability lower.

 

The price of everything has gone up so much in the past couple years, that I don't think the market has effectively stabilized.  For instance, I'm about to purchase a new set of tires from Miller Tire for my 1855.  This is going to cost me more than I've paid for a complete tractor longer ago!!

$2,200 for which tractor?  The one in the ad above was just $1750???

No, I've got the tractor that toppop52 was talking about that he gave $1,000 for...the Massey 1855 with FEL.  I didn't buy it directly from him.  It changed hands about 3 times very quickly.  From what I can tell, he's the only one that did anything to improve its value though.

I sold it with a back blade for $2500, then sold the guy a set of disks, and could have sold 3 that same morning. My phone was a busy tool.

Well, I don't feel quite so badly then.  I got the back blade and discs with it as well. :)
