||Just took a quick look at a Massey Ferguson 1010 for a possible buy. I know very little about CUTs and next to nothing about this particular tractor. The owner is unsure of the year (probably early 90's). It's a series 2961, 16hp/3cyl diesel, live PTO, hydraulics, manual (gear driven)2WD, with three attachments; a 6' front blade, 6' rear blade and a 60" Caroni finish mower (pull behind). It's in fair shape and they're asking $2700. I don't even know if this is a good model MF or not, but the son-in-law is interested and I'd like some info on the 1010. I have the serial number too, if that can get me some more info (14T39).
Any help appreciated.
||It's a tough tractor, especially the manual trans models. They originally were designed to handle a 54" belly mower, so a 60" should work fine. I do not use mine to mow, so I can't say for sure. When you change the oil, be certain you check the fuel pump and add oil to it if needed. People often overlook this. This tractor was made in Japan by Hinomoto, and has a Toyosha engine in it. Toyosha is no longer in business. Your MF dealer can get most parts though. The price seems very good for the tractor, and with the implements it almost seems a little low. If it runs well and seems to have no issues, I'd buy it. You can sell the implements you do not want.
