    Default Massey 1652 Tractor

    I am seriously considering purchasing a Massey 1562 tractor. I have done a lot of research and narrowed it done to this tractor. The only thing I am unsure of is what transmission to pick. The HST or power shuttle. I will be primarily using this tractor for mowing and pushing snow and maybe some field work.

    Any information that can be provided will be a big help.

    I just ordered a 1643 with hydro. I would think that's what you would want for mowing/ snow removal.

    The better half will operate it time to time. Still undecided on the type of transmission. I have been reading on sites that the HST makes a whining noise that is noticeable in the cab. I will need to go to the dealership to try one. Did you do any research on the HST before your purchase?

    Powershuttle hands down. No clutch needed except to start and change gears. Or go for the gusto and get DynaQPS. The shuttle requires no clutching, easy to use as a hydro, and no where near as noisy - hydro whine.
    Thanks,

    Will

    I have the 1652 Dyna QPS w/ power shuttle. It gets used for plowing snow, mowing, loader work and field work tedding and raking hay. The power shuttle is perfect for loader work. I don't have the hydrostatic so I can't speak for that, but I have no complaints with my set up.

    No issues. It can freeze you out in the summer months and keep you warm enough to clear snow in your underwear in the winter months.
