I searched about everywhere I could think of including here but I never found what I am looking for. As always, when I'm searching for myself I cannot find.

On to the question, does anyone has the specifications of the 1655? If available I would also like specifications of similar MF tractors (1650, 1855). Particularly I am interested in the length, width, height and weight of those, without attachments. You guessed right if you think I am wondering about moving those tractors in a trailer.

Thank you in advance!

I can not give you the exact wheel bases but the 50 series is 6" shorter that the 55 series. Check our manuals section, I would think it is listed in the service manual.
I'll do some measurement when I get Home.

Good thanks guys!

Given that I assume I can tow a 1655 without attachments in a 4'x8' trailer with a 1200lbs axle behind a normal car ('94 Honda Accord).

(I know, I won't take you responsible in anyway if I have problems. I will be cautious if I ever do that)

Yes, it'll fit that trailer fine. BUT, as you already know, be very cautious & give plenty following distance & start slowing down real early before stops or turns. It will push you with all 4 wheels locked! I was just towing a fairly light 5x9 trailer loaded with a Bush Hog D4-10 (no attachments) with my Jeep Grand Cherokee when I came upon a stop after an unfamiliar curve. Liked to not have stopped! As I said, I know you already know to be careful, but I had to say this just the same.
