Is a real Massey and not a Snapper in disguise. Nothing wrong with the Snappers except when they are wearing the wrong badge. It is in really good shape, has ag tires, the original set of turf tires, mower deck that is in great shape. No 3pt or rear pto though. Gave the guy $1,500 for it. Will post pics a little later once I get em off the camera :D

Does it run/drive? With a high price, is there anything on it that goes high? :D

Why yes, there is something that goes high, if you take the gas cap off and stick your nose in there long enough you get that high feeling LOL

Does the surprise start with a "Load" and end in an "er" ?
I was thinking it before OCH mentioned it.

The thread was fun while it lasted. Wasn't expecting Daniel to give all the hints LOL. Dan was the only one that knew about it since this morning. I gotta confirm the year but it is a 1983 Massey Ferguson 1655, has the rear ag tires and a really nice mower deck and the most important part is it has a Johnson loader on it.

The Onan on it needs some fine tuning as it surges some at idle. The loader works great and the hydraulics are surprisingly fast. I wish it had a 3pt and rear pto but it is alright. I am going to take the 3pt off the other 1655 and put on this one. I also am going to take care of getting the rear pto from Daniel for it. I will post some better pics and questions tomorrow when I have better daylight and my good camera. The pics in the daylight are the ones the guy sent me on my phone through text and the ones taken at night are from me with my phone at a parking lot in the light so it could be seen.
