What are the wheels in front of the deck?

 

Anti-scalp wheels that have been added.

Just curious, why did you not opt to buy the 1855?  It's a lot more tractor than the 14 is.

If it wasn't so far away I would snatch it up for that price. All of the body panels are nice and straight and it has the three point.

I don't know I thought it might be to expensive to work on it.  I actually talked to a guy today that has a 1655 with deck and 3 point with snow plow for $350 says it runs but doesn't idle really.  Said three of the tires don't hold air and its not pretty.  I have yet to see a picture of it will probably just go check it out its 40 minutes or so from my house and make a offer.

Buy that thing. You can't go wrong for the price. And all the attachments.

It's no more expensive to work on than any other tractor of that vintage, and tougher than most any GT available, even today.

 

I have a 1977 MF1655 and a 2006 MF GC2310 SCUT. If I had to part with one of them, I would sorely miss having the back hoe, but I wouldn't miss paying for the expensive parts or the busted knuckles.

 

If I had the money, it would have been sitting in my yard 3 days after you said that you passed on it. The last 1655 that I bought was in south east Iowa. Kentucky is closer.

I called the guy to set up a time for me to drive up and get it.  He seemed very nice, but when we started talking pricing, it seems now that he's needing $1500 for it?!  You had said he was asking $750, correct?

 

It's worth the trip for me at $750...but not at double the price.

 

Thanks, Eric

Correct he said $750 is what he was asking for it.  I don't know what changed thats weird.  I should have went and bought it but I am going to get this 1655 hopefully tommarow.

$350 is a great price. Those massey/snappers ar worth it. I wish I had video of what I am currently using mine for. I am reclaiming some yard area. The previous owners had a pond dug out. The contractor left most of the diggings in piles around the pond. That was 15 years ago. I started using my big tractor (massey 50 with FEL) to knock down the piles. I got a little done with it. I switched to my 2 snappers. One with a potatoe plow, the other with back scraper. There are no more hills. The foot control made easy work of them. I still use the big massey for stumps but the majority of work was with the snappers. Its roughed out and hopefully will be finished graded by next weekend..

 

I like the snappers so much that I have sold my WH D200. It basically the same size as a 1855 but the hand control and hyraulics layout just cant do the same as the snappers.
