You are comparing apples to watermelon!. If the 1450 was newer I would say snap it up. The 1450 is a Fiat built tractor If wheelbase and all that stuff like that is important the 550 is a lot shorter. Make sure the 550 has a remote valve and a drawbar. Also remember at least around here very few early 550 tractors had power steering. We sold 3 of the 1450 tractors. Two are left, the owner of the other one died and it was sold on his sale. We never had many problem with those 3 tractors.

Thanks! My only concern with the 1450 from what little I've looked around is they seem like parts are hard to come by. From your experience is that the case? I think it's not a bad deal and the tractor looks very clean but I have to drive 9 hours just to see it in person so I would want to know that if I am going to buy it that it won't be too hard to find parts.

What is the size and turning radius of the 1450 like in comparison to a 770?
