These are comments in general about Massey tractors.

It does not seem like many here have them so you will get little feed back probably, as you are aware.

Massey has not built their own in years. No idea who builds them now they are owned by Agco who is a large company with many brands they have bought over the years. Massey did run two product lines, a very good one with at least some of those model built then in England and then a very price model line built in Turkey if memory is correct. They had other companies building for them in other countries. Was told this is why there can be the variance even in the paint color some claim there is.

In my part of the world compact Massey's just are not near as common as Kubota, John Deere, New Holland or even Kioti and there is as about as well stocked Massey dealer here as any brand.

In stepping out on limited information it is my impression Massey don't have the life some other brands do. This may be with their lower price products as that is what my brother has (how I learned about the lower price and poorer designed line).

Have had no experience with a Massey built probably in the last 10 years other than walking by them on Kubota lot.

My area has a lot of compact tractors owned by homeowners and contractors and then jumping to farmers. I sell by far more Massey in the over 100 hp size and you don't see many of those. Seldom enough they get my attention when I do.
