Does anybody know if I can pull a really light 4x8 trailer with a few straw bails and 3 small children with my 16hp snapper 1650 garden tractor please? Also, what is the tow capacity on this beast?
Thanks!
Bob

:wave: Welcome to the forum! I would think you could pull it just fine, stopping quick might be an issue though!

Should be no problem.  They are built like tanks compared to todays.  If you should know if you're straining it if you would pull a really steep hill.  With the load you describe I doubt you could stain it even if you wanted.  Welcome to a great forum.

Excellent!!!
Thanks for all the replies so quickly!
I will search for some straw bails now and Halloween will be extra fun for the kids. I live right next to a cemetery, so yeah!
Also, thanks for the welcoming! I'm brand new to GTs, so I will probably be on here a lot. I'm putting more tractor looking tires on the front today. Is that something anybody would like before and after pictures posted? The guy I bought it from was going to put them on it, but he became unemployed. So, I did pay an extra $150 for the wheels. Partially because they look great and partially because the guy needed the money. I think they'll shift a tiny bit of weight to the back and have a little better traction. Does it matter what kind of tranny fluid I use? I'm told the tyranny fluid is the hydraulic fluid too.??.
I'm rambling, but I'd appreciate it if anyone has some knowledge to share.

We all love pics. Check the link in my signature for help with them. I'll leave the fluid question to those in the know.

Welcome to GTT. You have started off with a great GT. They are strong and when taken care of are very reliable. You can download manuals for the tractor(Massey Ferguson is the same) and the engine in our Manuals Section. We are here to share info so, ask when you need help. Good Luck, Rick

 

Tractor Service Manual   http://gardentractor...-1650-and-1855/

 

Parts Manual   http://gardentractor...s-parts-manual/

 

Sales Brouchure   http://gardentractor...1450-1650-1655/

 

You can only download 3 for free per day. You will want to find the Operators Manual and the Kohler Engine Manual.

The only problem, besides the rims not being white, is that now the plow stops going down about an inch before it touches the ground. I live in Wisconsin, so it's a huge necessity to plow all the way to the ground. Any solutions please?
Thanks!
Bob

I'm glad I made a good choice! The guy I bought it from took excellent care of it and I plan to take care of it very well. It cost me almost as much as my vehicle. So far well worth it. I don't know why my 5 year old isn't as excited as I am. Hahaha

That piece on the front of the tractor that keeps the plow straight, any way to lower it some so the plow can go lower? Or does it even come down that low? Might need to use longer lift links, too!
