  • As I look through these old tractor pictures I am amazed at how many massey tractors were built. numbers I never even knew excisted.. and a four wheel drive by massey early yeared one. they were reasonable to buy and so dependable.. wonder why they cant build them that way today

  • If anyone is travelling to Western Australia I recommend that they visit the Dardanup Heritage Park south of Perth. There are many types of tractors from Ransomes up to D8s and many in between. All have been completely renovated, painted and in working order. A number of trucks have also been renovated and in working order. They are all under cover in huge sheds and look like new machines.

  • Before I was married in 1961 we had a Massey Harris 55K on two separate properties. We part filled the rear tyres with water to give them extra grip and built a timber and Masonite canopy on it. We pulled an AL harvester with it mostly as well as a Claas header in the WA wheatbelt. Being young and inexperienced at that time I inadvertently removed the radiator cap in above 40 Celsius whilst harvesting. I avoided being scalded though. On the second property we just used it as a hack as we had much bigger tractors there. I am now 74 and miss those days.

  • MY DAD HANK LENNARD HAD A MASSEY-HARRIS AND OLIVER DEALERSHIP IN MARSHALL, MINNESOTA IN THE LATE 1930 S MAYBE EARLY 40 S. I HAVE A PICTURE OF HIM IN FRONT OF HIS DEALERSHIP ON MAIN STREET WITH TWO MODELS. THEY DON T LOOK MUCH LIKE WHAT I SEE ON THIS WEB SITE. THEY ARE VERY SLEEK AND MODERN LOOKING. MY QUESTION IS.......WAS THERE SOME CORPORATE CONNECTION BETWEEN OLIVER AND MASSEY-HARRIS JUST CURIOUS. DOES MAKE ME A BIT SAD AND EVEN DEPRESSED TO SEE THOSE GREAT OLD MACHINES!! I SAW AN AD THE OTHER DAY FOR TRACTORS AND RELATED EQUIPMENT FROM INDIA FERKRISSAKES.

  • We farmed with a Massey Harris 55 in the late 60 s, but I don t know what year of tractor it was. As a teen ager I certainly was not happy to drive it. It did not have power steering was very bulky to me. But it was a dependable tractor and gave us very little trouble. We farmed in west-central Oklahoma and used it mainly to farm our wheat ground. We used a 1949 MM U for our rowcrop when I was growing up. One of my brothers still has that tractor it has been restored. I often wondered where that old Massey ended up. Who is this moron that put these posts up from April 23-26th. Why can t they be deleted

  • My dad has a 1953 MH 55 Diesel that my grandfather bought new. This tractor had the optional extra wide Goodyear tires in the back and still runs great. This tractor also has the hydraulic unit option that bolts onto the PTO shaft at the back of the tractor. He also has a 555 diesel that is essentially the same tractor, except it has live hydraulics and power steering driven off a pump at the front/side of the motor. As well there is a little chrome hood ornament that the 55 didn t have and a little flip-up door on the hood just behind the radiator.

I would say the tractor is in above aveage condition and it came with a brush hog. What I want to know is if anyone has mounted a 3point hitch on one? The horsepower? Original paint colors? What else the belt drive can be used for? please let me know if you have any info? additional pics would be cool also. thanks in advance

  • I was originally an Allis Chalmers fan. However, since there are hundreds of Allis Chalmers collectors out here in the Northwest I decided to switch allegiance to Massey Harris and bought a 55GS Serial # 2132. According to some info I've seen, this may be the first production tractor for the 1948 Model Year. If anyone has any info. or contacts out here in Idaho please contact me. Thanks!

I am using it for digging trenches for power and water down in the Ozarks, around Badnell Dam. I have 20 acres that i am developing on a shoestring budget. The tractor does the work, but blew a hose last week. I am doing this part time, since I am on the road alot driving a charter bus. I will look for the numbers next time I am down there, so as to check out what year and what I have. thanks for being there

We pull a two bottom plow with it, pull cutters for trial blazing, and use it twice per week on a seven foot rototiller. We have been running it for six years with just a clutch replacement so far. Its gas, 12volt, getting weaker, but remains a very useful tractor.

  • My dad farmed with a M-H 55,44 and 101 Sr.Alle three were great farm tractors.The 55 came with 16x34 tires and we replaced them with 18x34 Firestones.Traction was much improved.We had 300# of wheel weights on each rear wheel and each rear wheel was filled with water.Our 55 did not have power steering but it did have a Charlyn hydraulic pump driven off of the PTO.For added power we over hauled the the big 4 with M&W pistons.Cubic inches were over 400 and the HP was near 80 or so.No big deal by today's standards but in the late50 and 60's nothing could out pull it.No J-D, no M-M,no Oliver,no Farmal,no A-C ,no Cockshut 50.Nothing. The M&W powered 55 with had was the King of the Hill. The only problem we ever had was the 6 volt ignition system. Not enough juice to crank the big bore 4 over.We put the biggest 6 volt on the market in the tractor,but on winter mornings,starting this animal could be hard.We often had to assist the 6 volt with the hand crank.The hand crank operator had to be ready in case of a back fire so as not to get a broken arm or wrist.Yes, the 55 was powerful and economical.During its era,nothing could match it,regardless what others might say,the 55 ruled. Our other M-H models were the 44 and 101 SR. We also put M&W pistons in the 44 and bumped the H-P to nearly 60.It was also a pulling fool, but needed more weight the front end could be lifted quite easy pulling a heavy load.It had a 5 speed gear box.Highway speed was good.Versatile,powerful tractor. The 3rd "Massey" we used was the 101 Sr.It had a 6 cylinder Chrysler engine.We used this tractor to cultivate beans and corn.We had a front mounted 4 row cultivator.With no power steering and all that weight on the front wheels,it took strong hands and arms to operate.You did not have to lift weights to build your muscles, just spend 8 hours a day turning the cultivator and you had a good work out.The best thing about the 6 banger was the road speed.You could easily top 20 mph. In their day,in my opinion,no tractor could out pull a Massey Harris or out perform a Massey Harris.We had other tractors while we had the "Massey's",Case( we called it the "hopeless case"),Farmal Super M,Co-OP E-3.Massey Harris beat them all. The only real difference between the 55 and 555 were a few features like power steering and some hydraulics I believe. The 555 had some chrome on the hood,and was only made for one or two years.

  • HI,WRITING FROM AUSTRALIA,WE HAD THREE 55K WHICH WERE FANTASTIC TRACTORS OUR ORIGINAL ONE LOGGING UP ELEVEN THOUSAND HOURS WITH ONLY A VALVE GRIND. IT WAS SREIAL NO 13587. WE THEN HAD A PERKINS 6/354 ENGINE FITTED WHICH WAS QUITE COMMON OVER HERE. THE BENEFIT WAS THAT THESE ENGINES OPERATED UP TO 2000 RPM WHICH GAVE THE TRACTOR A MUCH FASTER SPEED RANGE,AND CONSIDERABLY MORE POWER AND REDUCED FUEL CONSUMPTION. THE THIRD ONE WE BOUGHT WAS ANOTHER PERKINS CONVERSION AND WE RAN THE TWO IN TANDEM FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS. THE OTHER THING WE DID WAS TO RUN THEM ON STEEL WHEELS OF A MASSEY 25 WHICH WENT STRAIGHT ON WHICH MADE THEM UNSTOPABLE IN OUR TYPE OF COUNTRY. A NEIBOUR WITH A J,D 4440 WAS TRYING TO SOW HIS PADDOCK WITH A18 FOOT SEEDER BUT JUST COULDNT GET ALONG AND I WAS ABLE TO WORK IT FOR HIM WITH THE MWSSET AND A 30 FOOT CULTIVATOR THEN HE WAS ABLE TO SOW

  • When I was young in the late 60's our farming operation was spread out. I remember my grandfather was working with a 55 Massey using a one-way to work some summerfallow. When he didn't come home we became concerned about where he was. Later that evening we got a call from the Russell Hospital in Russell Ks. He was admitted with a broken wrist! He had refueled the tractor (by 5 gallon cans) and when he went to restart it via the hand crank, the engine kicked back and sprung his wrist a good one. We were all more careful from then on. The 6-volt system on the 55's was never enough! We used several 55 for quite some time, even putting a front-end loader on them for moving big round bales.

  • My maternal grandfather owned two 55's on LPG. He farmed rice in the Katy, TX for 60 years. He had a quirk about purchasing tractors, he always purchased in pairs and spread his business between the Case, IH and MH dealers. But he never owned any combines other than IH. My dad farmed with JD and his dad with MM.
