JIMG_2198.jpg ust picked up this massey 85 to add to the collection, dont know anything about this tractor other than they are kinda rare but there doesnt seem to be much info available on them. ive been trying to find out the year of this machine but havent had any luck finding anything on the years other than they were produced 77-79. the serial number is 008781, hoping someone on here may know what year that would make it and possibly the value.

:wave: Welcome to the forum! We might be able to date it from the engine #'s. Not sure if MF had a listing to date from tractor serial #'s.

Welcome to GTT. Nice little mowers. I've been looking for one for years now to add to my collection as well. Seems when people want to sell, they think they are worth $500 for a beat up mower. Looks nice. Look in the manual section under MF. I think there is a build date sheet in there somewhere. Good luck. Nice looking tractors in the back ground.

Alright, I just looked up what I was talking about. The list does not include the 85 model. Sorry, hopefully someone will chime in that can help you out.

I used to have one.  I bought it cheap, but it was really rough.  I restored it to very nice condition, and eventually sold it for $400.  Another fellow sold one similar to yours, sans hub caps HERE.

  I've never seen a DOM list for the 85 LT.
