One must evaluate their needs when deciding what to buy. Will it be a weekend warrior machine for mowing, food plots, plowing snow or everyday model for greater utility use? Nothing wrong with the earlier Massey's, but I'd caution about the later ones. I just finished working on my friends 1984 1010 model, and what a piece of junk. That it was a diesel was the only saving grace. Engine was built by a Japanese company no longer in business, and no one took over the manufacturing or parts end of it, with parts virtually no longer serviced, and other issues. For the few parts I could get -filters, the cost was ridiculous. Just saying do your homework well...
