Massey Ferguson® Model 1529 & 1532

April 3, 2008  By Massey Ferguson®

mfgoodMassey Ferguson® has added two brand new models to its compact tractor line. These new Models 1529 and 1532, offer buyers advances in compact tractor power and versatility, at competitive prices designed to give owners the best combination of power and cost efficiency in the industry.

The 1529 is rated at 28.4 engine horsepower and features an 8×8 SynchroShuttle transmission that makes tough jobs like loader work and material handling as easy as larger-size tractors, especially with the optional factory-installed joystick. The 1532, rated at 33.0 hp, comes with an efficient 9×3 constant mesh gear transmission, and offers an 8×8 SynchroShuttle as an option. Massey Ferguson is introducing the new L100 front-end loader especially designed for the 1529 and 1532 compact tractors. The 1529 and 1532 feature heavier front axles for added four-wheel drive power when needed on tough jobs. The 8×8 SynchroShuttle transmission (eight forward/eight reverse speeds) allows the operator to shuttle from forward to reverse without stopping the tractor, so loader jobs can be handled faster.


The new L100 front loader is designed specifically for the two new tractors and can be factory installed, along with the optional joystick. The L100 loader can lift over 1,200 lbs. to full height (measured at the pivot pin). Both models come with independent 540 rpm PTO, and a mid-mount 2000 rpm independent PTO is available as an option (excluding the 9×3 transmission). Each PTO can be run separately or simultaneously. Both the 1529 and 1532 are engineered with advanced three-cylinder diesel engines that meet Tier II EPA emissions standards.
