MF 1532 Hydro Posted by SH and LW on 01/10/2013

We bought the Massey Ferguson 1532 based on value for money. We considered buying blue or green/yellow or orange. Went with the red Massey and we are very pleased so far. Also considered a slightly larger Massey, like a 1635, but this one does everything we need it to do.

Bought it with the L100 loader with skid-steer quick-attach bucket and the 72" belly mower, plus a set of remotes.

Pros include:
Very good value, comfort, east of use, fit-and-finish. Seems to be well-built. Love the 2 pedal hydro stat. All the controls are in the right place and easy to use.

Cons: the L100 bucket is small but typical for this size tractor. The bucket doesn't rollback very much. Loader joystick is too sensitive, but we're getting used to it.

Added a toolbox behind the seat on the ROPS just like others have done. Bought a small plastic toolbox from Sears and drilled a couple holes through the bottom of the toolbox and attached it to the ROPS with 2 zip ties. Problem solved.

Our dealer is also a pleasure to work with and has been great with post-sales support, so far.

Overall, we are very happy. Extremely happy with value-for money. Does everything we need it to do, so far.
