This is NUTNDUN Massey 8 hydro.
I have a chance to get one like it with a hydro also but was wondering how rare these are. The number 8s that I see are usually regular gear shifts.
There's a 7G in my basement with a sold sign and a very good deck on it. Did you include that one in your tally Alan? :rolling:We,ve got two of the 8h units and one 7g that could all be resurrected... And only one good deck in the whole pile. If the deck is good, it's probably rarer than the tractor at this point.
Nice. Do you have any picturs of it all spiffed up?I have an 8 gear shift and it has the original deck and engine. When I took the head off of the engine, the cylinder walls had no scoring and had the cross hatching still. Has a good deck too. My uncle bought it new from a local massey ferguson dealer in town and then sold it to my grandparents shortly after because it was too small for him. It sat in the shed for 25+ years before I rescued it. has original tires too! This picture of my 2 boys on it is from last summer when I brought it home, before I cleaned it up.DSCF4384.JPG
