    A 30 second search on ebay turned up this link:

    http://search.ebay.com/massey-1010-m...ageNameZRC0021

    this shows a I&T manual for about 22$ and a massey manual for about 19$

    A 19$ manual is hard to beat..

    I got a *free manual* with the tractor however I am sure they include the price in the tractor.

    It would be useful if I could download one as well. I really don't feel like carrying the manual around with me. I have several work stations away from the tractor residence. On several occasions I have wanted to look something up...oil spec for one. It would be a heck of a lot more efficient if the tractor manufacturer were to scan the document and make it available. It just doesn't make sense for a bunch of tractor owners or dealers to make duplicates when the source could do it once and benefit everyone.

    Making manuals available online is very common. Why waste resources??? A hard copy with the tractor and one available online. What's wrong with that??

    Some Do. You can order a cd or print version of many of their tractor manuals.

    As for oil and such.. I just figure that is something to remember. Even with multiple tractors.. it just becomes habit after a little while.

    I read my op manuals when i get the unit.. and that's probably the last time it gets touched.. unless I am looking up data for another owner who either doesn't own a manual, or doesn't have it handy.

    Tech manuals a re a tad different. Thos get consulted for diagnosis and repairs as they are needed.

    I, too, have downloaded manuals from the manufacturer for a variety of things. I have this system for my guitars that has 42 built in amplifiers and effects and allows me to record and edit on my computer. I bought it used because it isn't made anymore. I was able to go online though to the manufacturer to get both software and manual for free. Just seems to make sense that you could get tractor manuals from the manufacturers, but I guess you can't. As for Yanmars though, Hoye has the parts schematics online so you can see how everything goes back together. I am finding that a handy tool. It is also helpful for ordering parts because they are all numbered on the schematics. All I had to say was I need #15 on that particular diagram.

    However, I bought a used Ford Mustang last fall and the owner's manual was missing. I had to buy one on ebay.

    John Bud, You come off as being a real *****. No one said anything about stealing. Most people as straightlaced as you seem to be have other things they are not so straight about. Try not being so abrupt to someone merely asking a question. A simple no would have sufficed. No , you were downright rude. You can get your point across without being RUDE!!!

    Don't believe anywhere in there did the man ask where could he steal a manual.
    He simply asked if a manual was available for download for free.
    Just like a lot of other products have this service. Not all, but a lot.
    I don't think the question was out of line at all.
    I would hate to buy a manual for something and then find out it was available
    for free download from the product manufacturer.

    I think it was a question worth taking a shot at.
    I certainly don't condemn the man for trying to save some money.
    If the manual is not available for free download anywhere,
    I would think a simple "no" would have sufficed.
    I don't think nobody here is trying to be a thief.

    I agree with Pooh Bear. I am also looking for a manual for a tractor that I own and would like to find it online in pdf and download it. BUT, I'll buy it if I have to. I don't think tractorshawn's intent was theft. He was looking for an honest answer. He got some AFTER the FIRST reply to his post.

    Welcome to TBN, tractorshawn. 99.99999999% good people and a few old grouchs here.

    Thanks a lot guys, I have been working many long hours in the field.OH not corn field.Construction.So I have not logged on to this forum in a week or so.I do appreciate all the good responces and helpfull leads. It seems that so many people jump to there own conclusion after a quick interpertation of what they see in there mind as the question at hand. I have never owned a tractor before, I saw this little compact tractor more usefull then the tractor I really fell for, A Ford 8n. I just didnt see the practicality in a really old old tractor, they are pretty aren't they. Maybe someday I will own one. In the mean time I guess I will just have to buy a manual from the dealer.I have been unable to locate one from the manufactures web site.There responce to my question that I mail to the site administrators, was contact your dealer.OH well suck it up,pull out the wallet and, get er done.Thanks again guys. Great site so far....

    Uh huh, that's right, try to make up for it now. LOL.

    Love my '49 8N tractor.
    Giving it up would be like giving away my dog.
    Just wouldn't be right. No sir. Not right at all.
