Dogman,
I have a 1250-4. I have had it for 14 months and have put about 600 hours on it. It has been a fine tractor. I have done just about everything with it. I have backhoed,bushhogged, plowed, used the loaded,dug post holes, decaked poultry houses, raked hay and hauled in large round bales. Other than hoursepower and the seat, the 1240 and the 1250 are not much different. I would recommend it to anyone. The only problem that I have had is a leaking o-ring and the dealer fixed it.

Thank you for your reply but i am curious what tranny you have in your tractor..I am torn between the hydro and sync- shift..Price will have some bearing on what I buy, but i plan to buy a loader someday..I am looking at massey loaders but had a real high price from a local dealer

Dogman,
I have the 16 speed shuttle. I have a gear for anything that I need to do.
I am a gear person, I don't like hydros.

I don't have a Massey, but some of the questions you ask are universal. I do test drive MF now and again; a good friend of mine is a Massey dealer so we get to talk about the tractors.
About transmissions: Personally, I don't care for the old collar shift non-syncro transmissions that plagued tractors 20 years ago. But I do like a clutch for those times when you want to sneak up on something tricky - like using the corner of the bucket to position a big rock. Or when you need to jerk on something with the sudden weight of the tractor. For me the perfect compromise is a shuttle shift where I can go from forward to reverse with one throw of the lever. The first shuttle shifts had the forward to reverse syncromesh, but the various forward gears were not. The modern syncro shuttle shift is even better.
As for the loaders, my dealer friend says the same thing: Massey loaders are too expensive for his customers. There are a variety of aftermarket loaders available that are every bit as good. He prefers GB loaders for their heavy construction and the way they fit on the MF.

Shucks...Probably not. Mine is in Denver. I live in Colorado - back in the mountains a ways.

Well the dealer is quoting me 3500.00 for a great bend loader and the same
for a massey loader.I,m about six months from my purchase so I have some
time to look.. I am getting some good prices on massey tractors from
tractorsmart.com they are 1000.00 to 2000.00 cheaper than the kc boys..
I originally was set on buying a 4400 john Deere but after reading all the
threads have just about ruled that out

I have owned a 1240 for about 8 months. The tractor and loader cost about $16,500. I have used it with a scraper, box blade, rotary cutter, small ripper and FEL applications. The tractor has about 70 hours so far and has worked great. I like the 16 x 16 with the shuttle, even though most of the two slow ranges (creeper gears) are hardly ever used because they are too slow for most applications. My tractor has R4 tires, which give plenty of traction and do a great job with loader work and other earth-moving applications. The only thing I would do differently next time is to order the tractor with a block heater. I have not had any starting problems yet, but I believe that there is a lot less cold starting wear on the engine if it is hooked up to a block heater prior to starting in cold weather. I checked out a lot of other makes before buying, but I think the MF 1240 is good value for money and has a lot of features and performance characteristics which are superior to other brands.
