    Default Compact help

    Looking at a compact for a Uncle. I sell alot of older farm equipment and farm alittle so I was the one he came to for a idea.
    He wants something small
    Im a massey fan but i dont personally own anything this small so i need help...

    Looked at the massey 22.5 hp
    had 4wd a loader and a mower for 11,250 NEW! seemed like a good deal.

    He liked the small size how it could fit in his small garage.

    Know i dont want a minhindra or brandson or cub cadet

    Questions now

    **That massey said it used a 3cy diesel is it a yanmar?
    **The new holland 30 boomer, is it close to the same dementions and where are they made and what engine do they run? (I assume it merriors the case IH as they are both CNH tractors.)
    ** kubota, what would be close in size to that massey and do they use kubota diesel engines?

    Thank you for your help. That massey seemed like a good deal even tho its jap. And ive always liked the bigger massey's run alot of the 2 series ( 265, 285 also 1100 doin hay) so i was assuming they would be close in performance? thanks. taylor

    The boomer 30 is made by LS and the engine is a Mitsubishi design.

    $11,250 seems too cheap for a GC2400 with FEL and MMM. Perhaps the person who quoted that left out an implement. I do believe that the GC series subcompacts are iseki. If it really is that cheap buy it before he comes to! Good luck in your hunt for the red tractor.

    It seems like a great price. The HP is a bit on the low side. Another 5 HP would make it a bit more handy.
