It easily handles all tasks I've asked of it so far, Including snow blowing, tilling, bush hogging, and grading.
Note: after the first fluid change (50 hours) the tractor sounded and started a lot better."

"Great tractor. It surprised me the power of the loader and the PTO is stout as well. I haven't found anything this tractor can't do, from pushing up stumps to carrying logs or digging a hole for a fire pit, this thing gets it done. Fuel mileage is awesome if you have a lot of work and a low tolerance for wasting time and money this is the tractor for you."

MF 1532 Hydro

Model year: 2012Date Purchased: 2012-08-01Number of Hours: 25
"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.
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. "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Good value for money, comfort, east of use. Loader can lift a lot for such a small tractor.Cons: Loader joystick is sensitive.

2012 Massey Ferguson 1532 Hydrostatic
Model year: 2012Date Purchased: 2012-09-15Number of Hours: 31
"I use this tractor to complete tasks on a 6 acre section of property. I previously owned blue and green tractors and I wanted to give Massey a try so I did.
Well I'm here to say that I'm 100% pleased with this tractor. I purchased it with the L100 Loader, Hico hinged box blade and a 5' Modern Superrr Sunshine rotary mower. The tractor has excellent power running all implements and has done everything I asked it to without a hiccup. Engine HP/Torque is excellent and much quieter than I expected.
The tractor fit and finish is top tier and serviceability is excellent. Massey definitely spent a great deal of time refining this tractor for user comfort and quick and easy service. Everything is really easy to get to and the deck platform and operator area is nearly vibration free. I especially like the seat design/adjustability. The arm rests are something I never experienced until now and you wouldn't believe how much this adds to user comfort.
The tractor is still new so I guess the jury is still out on long term reliability but my gut feeling is that this one will be around for many years to come. So far I'm totally satisfied and excited about this purchase."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Comfort, servicability, overall fit and finish, quietness, etc. Tractor is well thought out.Cons: None to speak of at this time.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA LAI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"Great little compact tractor! I bought this tractor with R-4 Tires,72" belly mower, front end loader, 72" scraper blade and a box blade.
The tractors primary use is for mowing large open fields which it does a quick and fine job. Sometimes I will use it to mow the yard, but only when it is dry because the tractors weight and r-4 tires it will tear up some turf, especially on a turn if in four wheel drive. It also does a great job maintaining my 1200' gravel driveway by use of the implements above."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Easy of operation, great look, does everything I ask of it.Cons: The rear tail lights catch on every tree branch, need of redesign.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA OHI also considered buying: Bobcat CT230, Kubota B2910, McCormick CT28 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"I purchased my Massey 1532 in December 2011, along with an L100 front end loader and an RD-5 Bush Hog. I couldn't be more pleased with the tractor, it has plenty of power for the size, and is very maneuverable in tight spots.
I have put 33 hours on it so far, mostly using the Bush Hog and picking up wood with the loader and clearing snow out of my driveway and our skating rink."

"Have house with 10 acres. About 4 acres we mow with a zero turn, garden tractor, and a finish mower on the tractor. Six acres is mowed with a rotary mower. The tractor has a loader attached. We have a rotary mower, finish mower, and a 7'blade.
Mower has performed to all my expectations. It is compact enough to mow our yard with the finish mower without tearing the yard up and strong enough to keep the brush down in the pasture.
Loader is more than adequate for my needs. Motor is quiet, controls are efficient, and the dealer is 2.5 miles away and has been in business for more than 40 years. Dealer is well regarded in the community. So far everything is good. "

"I previous owned a BX25, but was in need of more lifting strength. This MF1532 handles all chores with easy and is more stable on the trails. I purchaed a 7 ft. woods BH and 6 ft box scraper. I built a thumb for the BH this makes moving large much easier. I am very happy with the MF company and quality of the tractor, purchased in new Glasgow, NS."

"The MF 1532:
I shopped the major brands and based my choice on the long warranty, price, looks, fit/finish, and ease of use. I'm well pleased so far, it has done everything I expected out of a small tractor this size. I have used the tractor around the house, at my store, moving pallets, spreading and leveling rock in my large parking lot. I only have ran 10 hours, but so far so good. The dealer delivered it full of fuel and after 10 hours of use it took 4 gallons of fuel to fill it."
