Hi If you could find a low hour not worked hard, tidy tractor Cheap, Then only lightly use it you might be lucky with it. Meaning no heavy plowing or huge loads on the pto. They are basically a big heavy tractor with too much power and not strong enough transmissions to cope with the power.

This is a wish you never asked answer from a guy that fixed an 1135 that is a smaller 6 cyl turbo version using pretty much the the same transmission. I also worked in a wrecking yard taking them apart looking for good stuff for customers. some of the tractors I wrenched on had one or more of the issues below. If it has multi power the disc and drums ware and the shift slips or is slow changing. The pto clutch discs can warp or ware in the drum and they don't disengage right or slip. The splines can strip or break the couplings in the pto drive line, as its a shaft about a 1.1/8th" diameter for 150 hp. The final drive reductions can break up badly and also the splines between the rear of the gear box and drive axle can ware and strip. Ive seen some where the pump in the transmission quit and also the usual gear selector, steering, motor problems that most tractors get in high hour use.
Regards Robert

I had one and it was a good tractor. I never had any of the problems the previous poster mentioned. I pulled a 12 shanks chisel plow and a 20 ft disc over a lot of acres. neighbor had one turboed with over 200 HP and never had any issues. He pulled a 7-16 plow and a 23 ft disc. I don't know anybody who has had any multi-power or trans problems with a 1155. The smaller Massey's had some multi-power trouble, but I have seen much trouble with the big ones.

I Only answered the truth from what I know from my experience and it's not good and I don't want to offend you with my reply now. you must be some of the lucky ones or it hasn't showed up yet. To be honest Some of this a guy won't know till you let the clutch up one day and it goes bang, or looses drive. or your round baler stops with a near full bale and you can't steer it or anything. Trust me I know the guy that was driving the 1135 when it did it. most of that tranny is the same or what I needed was we cross referenced it in the wrecking yards. They have a bad name for these problems round here. I know a dealer guy that fixed them when new and he said they where not that good either back in the day. I know of one on a 13" auger now with a loader one owner from new and it has many issues with MP and stuff. Nobody will pay money for them round me nice ones 2500- 4 grand on a good day in sales. My local wreckers don't want them really anymore . when I worked in the yard I pulled 6 apart looking for good final drives and they all had chipped or busted off teeth or near stripped drive couplings. I can say where there are a few more as I looked at them for parts for the 1135 and they had these problems too I had parts from about 10 different tractors in the end to do the 1135.
Regards Robert
