I know this has been out there awhile but I just joined the site, and wanted to tell you this is a great looking machine. I just bought a MF1650 last week, and this encourages me to do something with mine. I do like the color scheme.

Thanks rokon! My nephew loves this Massey. He's been working her, so I'm sure it has wear to the paint, but these tractors are for using, so that's AOK with me. I just thought it would look better with this paint scheme, as it's more like the larger farm tractors of it's day.

Amen to the using, Daniel! The daughter is using it right now to plow her new garden (except the son-in-law keeps trying to show her how to do it so that he can have an excuse to use it).

I also let this rear 3pt mower in with the sale as I hardly ever used it. I built it from a Yard Man rider's 52" mower deck. He got a heck of a deal, tractor like new, new tires all around, with rear mower for $1550.00. BTW...I made these decals myself too. Had the wife help me when I overlayed the colors. Extra hands help a lot!

Daniel, Did you ever do the build thread on the rear 3pt mower conversion?

:mecry: no fair, my hopes and dreams has been smashed, (sob, sob) all my uncle gives me are barn fresh rare hard-to-find garden tractors and expensively rare engines and garden plows :mecry:


p.s. :D:D:D:D:D I hope you know im kidding..right..:D:D:D

When it all falls apart/breaks, chuck a tool or two at it and remember, tommorow is another day.

I'm glad this thread resurfaced. This was before I joined as well. I really like the color scheme, it reminds me of the old Massey farm tractors. Great finish with lots of shine. I'm sure the photo's didn't do it justice.

Thanks for the pictures.
