Just keep a medical kit on your person whenever you tell her....you'll likely survive!:itsok:


LMAO, I will have to remember that. Although after I TELL her I am getting a 1650 or 1850 I can TELL her who's yo daddy and likely not survive LOL

I always wanted a Super GT, I was going to buy a JD400 or 420. Then I saw that Massey made the 1855, similar to the 420, minus the hydraulic ports and power steering.
Next thing you know, there was a rusty crusty 1855a sitting in my driveway. Now if I can just get that thing done this summer, I will be happy.

I am going to start getting serious with trying to find one of these. There are really starting to grow on me and I like the idea of the 3pt. I miss my john deere 3320 I had with the front end loader and backhoe. It would have made quick work of this snow but would be way too big with where we live now. The 1650 or 1850 would be perfect.

I don't think they ever made a 1850, just a 1855.

That is good to know, I wasn't sure if it was classified as like 1850 series or if it was only 1855.

The 50 series went to 16hp, all single cylinder, I believe. The 55 series are 16 and 18hp both Onan twins. I like the 55 series best myself.

Todd is correct! And it's evident I like the Onan twins better, as it was a lot of work changing mine over. Just thought too....I should be calling mine a 2055, not a 2050. "2055" sounds better too!

I agree, I like "2055" better too.

Sorry guys, I'm old school, love the old 14, 16, and even 18hp single cylinder Kohler and Briggs. Kind of like the old ford inline six cylinders versus the 302, the sixes had better low end torque

Beautiful tractor very nice work it always pays to take your time when painting, clean and prep every thing good and clean or you can run into all kinds of problems. paint lifting fish eyes runs in the clear or even in the paint but you can sand them out even if it's in the paint as long as if haven't clear it. you can sand it out man really looks good olcowhand thanks for sharing, I always enjoy pic and restore's later James

Thanks Daniel. Now if I could just keep up with your production.

It's likely the '70 MF12h will be my best work as far as detail. I went a bit overboard on that machine.

You guys both do amazing work. I think as long as someone takes their time and does their research they can do an amazing job also.
