Just got it home last night. It needs some TLC, but it's pretty much complete. The PO recently had the pump, valves and hoses for the FEL replaced. I'm sure I'll need your guys help fixing somethings.

That's great . Once you start using it you'll wonder how you ever got along without a FEL , Al

Thanks guys, I'm pretty excited. Here we are almost into June and my back yard still hasn't been cut due to all the rain and standing water in low spots. Since a dump truck won't fit through my fence, I have to haul dirt back in a 1500lb capacity dump cart. The yard will probably need 20-30 tons, and needless to say I wasn't going to shovel that much!

Good looking equipment. I like a FEL, but don't know what I'd use it for. Yard ain't hardy big enough for anymore. LOL

IMG00188-20110517-1400.jpg If any of you remember the posting on ebay earlier this year, this is the one from PA that the reserve price wasn't met. It doesn't have the original 16 hp Onan( listed in the auction as a 18HP Kohler), it was replaced by a Onan Performer 24, hopefully that doesn't present a problem. It needs a new front grill, seat, and steering wheel. Also, there seems to be an awful amount of play in the steering. Massey Ferguson 1655 - eBay (item 330522104334 end time Jan-28-11 13:23:09 PST)
