Wait til you start working on 10 tractor projects, I go crazy smetimes, but I don't have a real job, so I just go with the flow and do whatever I want.

Biggest thing to look out for is on the 50 & 55 series, and that is wear in the shafting splines & couplers.

The other weak point is the mower deck pulleys, if you need a deck?
I second what Daniel said about the splined shafts and couplers.
No power steering is the 55's greatest flaw, IMO.

I saw your thread 2655 custom, quite the project I don't know about you but for me the hardest thing to do is to finish something, it's easy to start. But this is a hobby not work it's suppose to be fun and it takes what it takes.

I don't really have a problem finishing projects. I just never have enough time to work on them all. I really want to use the 2655 and I can't wait to start building the FEL for it, so I really want to see it finished soon.
I may pay to have someone else media blast it for me, that will speed things up tremendously.

1855 over the 1655 simply because of more HP. The 55's over all others due to multiple PTO outputs and hydraulic features. The 1655 & 1855 can accept a 3RD hydraulic control valve for a remote set of quick connects. Also, the 55's have much stronger front axle assemblies.
