Soon to get a Snapper/Massy 1650, was wanting to know the pros and cons to this tractor. I'm new to this brand of tractor so any anfo u have would be awesome. Thanks
Aww man, If you're not getting it do you mind if I ask how much he was asking? Sure wish you were closer.Well took a look at the Snapper 1650 has a Massy I'D tag on it, plus looked like it has been repainted and put Snapper decals on it. I would love to try my hand at this tractor because it looks very heavy duty, but to become a nice work tractor it will take a lot of work that I don't have but wish I did the 1650 has 3point and rear PTO Sent from my HTC VLE_U using Xparent Red Tapatalk 2
1650 is K341 Kohler single cylinder. 1655 is twin Onan I believe. They don't build like this anymore unless you spend some very serious cash.I think the 1650's were single cyl while the 1655/1855 where twins, can't remember the difference, I'm probably wrong
They are good heavy tractors, mid and rear lifts, 3 pts, all hyrdo, etcs. As mentioned, the bad is the mower decks, they use a timed system, almost impossible to find belts or parts for them. The rear PTO is nice, but it is 2000rpm only, limits you to what rear implements you can use and finding them. I have an 1855 I bought a year ago, but hidden problems has had it sideline since I brought it home, finally got my parts, hope to work on it in August then get my FEL built for it. It had a rear blade already so it will be limited to a dirt/gravel mover.
The decks on the Massey models were much better than the Snappers, unless your talking about the cogged/time pulley blade system, which I love, expensive to rebuild, but hey its a once in a lifetime rebuildThe mower deck is a con if you intend on using it for mowing.I love that series of GT's but the deck keeps me from owning one.
