Up for sale here is a 1855 Snapper. Cousin to the Massey branded 1850s & 1650s. Not the best of shape but not the worst. Would be a good project or parts tractor. Good FEL platform. Guessing to be around an '83/84 vintage.
The good
Motor must have been swapped out at one point with an Onan P220 which always starts great and no smoke. Note a 20 HP not 18 as should be. Hydro is strong. Good rubber and all hold air. Lots of weight & chains.
The Bad
Hydro leaks around a fitting or hose. Throttle cable need repair at dash lever but easy fix. Blower sub frame needs new bolts to frame so blower does not lift as should. Blower shaft guard needs repair, another easy one. Blower lift springs needs some attention.

Make no bones about it this tractor needs some love but with my Wheel Horse addiction I just don't have the time so would like it to go to a good home. Way too good to scrap out.

Asking $850.00 OBO
Local pick up in central Wisconsin. PM with questions.
