I have an early 90's 1855 that I am looking at selling. Received this in a trade so I didn't buy it so I don't know its true value. It is having issues starting after sitting for a month or so. I rebuilt the carburetor in April but it's still having issues and I am done dealing with it. It includes: rear tiller, 2 snow blades, front snow blower, manuals for tractor/attachments and tire chains. The tiller works great and the front hydraulics work great for lifting the snow blade. Snow blower started to work but the internal chain came off after a couple of minutes of use. I was thinking between $1500-$2000. Any ideas?

Welcome Yes you are in the ball park depending on where you are trying to sell it The price of these has gone down in the last 2 years Ive seen the 1855A tractors alone fetch from $100-$1800 pending condition the 4850 tiller $200-$1200 pending condition and the 4820 snow blower fetch $150-$450 pending condition I never seen a blade sell though The big issue that arises with these tractors and attachments are parts They can be hard to find such as the gear box for the tiller if you mess up the input shaft it takes the wind right out of the sails if you were in Iowa id give you $1500 for the setup pending condition If the jackshaft sprocket is shot causing the chain to fall off that can be a real headache in itself as it is not attainable from what I have found You need to have a good friend as a machinist for this as with a lot of other things on these tractors unless you get lucky and find the part you need I also would like to see the attachments Thanks for posting Let me add that if you do try selling The company called Fastenal ships stuff like this from warehouse to warehouse across the states at a fraction of the cost of all the other transporters

That tractor is more of an early 80's, not 90's .They stop making that model in 1984 I think.

 

Prices are all over, I bought a running Massey 1855 with mowing deck & 5' back blade for $400, but needed work.

 

Those rear tillers are 2000 rpm models which can be hard to find, that could go for $4-800 by itself.

 

 

Considering you have the 3pt and rear PTO and with the attachments and condition yours is in, I would say $1500 is well in the ball park.

I will throw out the opinion that you're overpriced by $250-$500 due to it's not running well, and the snowblower not being operational. The tiller (with the rear pto to run it) is the highest value attachment, just not at this time of year.

I think you will have trouble getting that kind of money for a non running tractor here in Utah.  I bet you will have to be under $1000 and even then it's a tuff sell.

Thats quite the front blade.Never seen one that attaches to the snow blower mount. How does it raise and lower? Same way the blower does? Just curious.

Built as Massey Ferguson until about 1984. The Snapper version went in until '90 or '91 with an Eaton hydro  instead of a Sundstrand.

It does raise and lower like the snow blower. Used it several times last winter and it moved the snow easily. The second blade which I don't have a picture of yet has a different bracket set up. Not sure how it hooks up since I just was given it last month after the previous owner just stumbled across it. The second blade is smaller and the mounting bolt pattern is the same as the big one so it should be possible to take the larger blade off and attach the smaller blade on.

I can find out the model number off the manual if it helps.

So opened up the carb and found some type of gel residue in it. Cleaned it out and now its starting but quits just after a couple of seconds. Any recommendations on what to do next? I did put some fuel stabilizer in the gas and will give it a try tomorrow.
