I was just looking through some old photos,and came across these.This is the 1855 I used to own.
Here are a few before,during,and after pictures of it.









Here I am being surprised by the camera.

It was used for everything from mowing chores,to gardening,to hauling a trailer ,to towing cars in and out of the shop,to plowing the driveways in the winter. Yes,it was a real workhorse,and I wish I had it back.

I guess the best answer I can give,is I had a weak moment.

That turned out really nice Maynard. They are a really nice looking machine when in that condition. Most of them that I have seen are pretty beat up. Someone got lucky and has a real nice tractor.

It was a "quicky"cover up to keep a spot from rusting,and yes,it was JD green.I just grabbed what I had on hand at the time.
Here are a few more after pictures.

You did a nice job there.
How long have you been wthout it?
Are you looking for another?

What is that boat behind the garage?
I'm guessing it has a Volvo I/o

Maynard, It looks great. You did a really nice job. By the way, your neighborhood is BEAUTIFUL. Must be a real hardship living in such a place.

I sold it in 2006.In 2009 I bought a 1655,and I will go at it some day.

The boat is my neighbor's ,it has a 350 chevy small block in it.

Those pictures were taken in the Fall after most of the leaves were gone off the trees.It looks even nicer when the leaves are still on.

Is that the only way we will be able to get you to be a Massey owner? :D
