:offtopic:Well what have we here .... a friendly off topic spat.
I being a self-appointed moderator of this thread ... have decided to stir it up a bit by adding that .... the Peerless 2300 is hardly a rear I would want to mount duals on either.

.... I have a pile of green ones here .... which prove the point. :D

I can't help it if the Americans are too lazy to spell colour, neighbour and a few other words correctly.:bigrofl:

It's way too late in the day to try and teach a bunch of old dogs, new tricks. :smile1:

Agree with everyone, our family is die hard Massey fans......always have been and always will be! LOL! My mom always told me my teething ring when I was a baby was a steering wheel of a Massey 1155 tractor! LOL! Our Massey fleet ranges from 7 hp to 425 hp! We've had Massey's on the farm going on 80 years now! Massey Harris/Ferguson has always been one the cutting edge of technology and left everyone else in the dust from hydraulic unloading swing augers on combines, triple sieves (cascading shoe) cleaning on combines, rethrashers on combines, high ineritia cylinders in combines, full view glass cabs on the 2000 series tractors, and first electronic 3 point on 4wd articulated tractors and it shows still today with the design of their equipment line. They build a great product at an affordable price! Love the way the garden tractors follow the same looks as the farm tractors.......looks great all lined up in the shed! LOL! We're hooked on MF red! Luke

What massey do you have with 425hp? I don't remember any over 400hp. I remember they had the 5200 articulated tractor, 375hp Cummins and a 390hp? Detroit Diesel. I think the 4900 articulated had a 375 Cummins too. Biggest they have now is only 320hp, (8680).

The biggest we had on our farm was a 1505. 3208 CAT in it, nice rig. My father did a total restoration on it, then sold it. Over in England somewhere now.

EDIT: I'm guessing your 425hp Massey is a combine. Sorry, I was just thinking tractors LOL
