Hi All,

I am searching for a 4840, 4880, 4900 or even a 5200 series with three point hitch. PTO would be a nice option as well.
Would anyone have one for sale ?

Thanks,
Tom

Since we are on the topic of Massey’s, were the front frame and hood longer on a 5200 than they are on a 4000 series?

Yes same frame as the 4000 series. The Agco star is the same frame. When you put a in line six the frame is 13 to 15 inches longer on the front.

My neighbor has a 4840 with a V-8 cummins in it that he was trying to sell last year. I'll ask and see if he still wants to sell it. If so I'll PM you.

my bucket list includes installing a 60 series detroit in a 4000 series massey. i have a 4900 frame ready to cut, a 4840 with a bad engine and can get either a 60 series detroit that needs a rebuild or a 3406 b cat that runs great but is a little more money then what i want to spend. wish there was a book with pictures for us dumb arses to follow. nothing on line to even get started with. KJ at reddeere did several with 914's and told me they worked great. must be one of these parked in the trees somewhere.if anyone has a 5200 laying around i sure would be interested.

Those 4000 series were great for their time. What scares me is parts availability for the transmission. Other than that they’re a heavy machine with a spacious cab.

I have seen a 3406 Cat ,855 Cummins,60 series Detroit . 1150 Cummins all worked well. The 1150 was set at 525 HP the transmission lasted 12000 hours.
