Antique Massey Harris Tractor: Massey-Harris 44

[Return to the Shed]

The first 44 appeared in 1946, which was a standard tread version. It was followed a year later by the 44 row crop version. In 1948 a diesel standard was introduced, followed in the next year by a diesel row-crop version. Production ended in 1955.

  • I have a 1956 Massey Harris model 444 tractor. For the live PTO clutch I need the 12 springs called spring, pressure . These springs are a coil spring about 1 and 1/4 inches high and about an inch in diameter. The part number I have is 1005518M1. The 444 Massey Harris makes a live PTO by putting a clutch on the right axle going to the right rear wheel. The clutch is located out side the transmission/differential housing, under the floor board on the right side of the tractor behind the brake pedals. It has absolutely no connection and is not in any way related to the main clutch of the tractor on the back of the motor. You can also contact me at phone number 519-881-2168 or 480-525-1332. Thanks

  • Dating the MH . Look under the tractor, just forward of the transmission housing on most you will find a date in the casting. That is the date that casting was made.As a general rule the tractor was built one year later .This date was omitted in later models , probably 1954/ 55. also the later MHF models 333-444 did not have it. also there is a book MASSEY FERGUSON TRACTORS by MICHAEL WILLIAMS -ISBN 0 71371898 6- THAT HAS EVERY SERIAL NO OF EVERY TRACTOR BUILT , BY MODEL AND YEAR This book is out of print but there may be some around . check the internet. this book was first printed in 1987 in england by blanford press.

All sheet metal is in very good condition, no dents or rusted out places, original front and rear lights. This tractor has been parked for over 25 years, no water in oil. Even the front grille is intact with no dents.

Now both tractors have been in a shed and not used for over 20 years I believe the 44D is a 1949 and has a wide front on it and also have the narrow front somewhere. The 44 gas I believe is a 1954 but I will get the serial numbers this weekend when I am at the farm. Both are original and have not been rebuilt. Any idea what these might be worth Or where I could get info. on this.

  • My Dad bought a 1949 Massey-Harris 44 gas used when I was about 8. I loved to drive it and it was a real work horse. I think it put out 48 horsepower at the drawbar, but it had been rebuilt at least twice, and was built to 44 special specs. Origionally it was 44 horses at the drawbar, and about 52 at the PTO, I think. If you have a 6 cylinder model, they were not as powerful. I was sad when my father had to sell it and I didn t have money to buy it.

I handled more suitcase weights than you can shake a stick at. He has since gotten rid of the 44. I was very upset when I found out he sold it, even though I didn't have the money to fix the cracked block (he thought that was the problem). I loved that tractor alot. I miss it to this day. Maybe I'll find it someday and bring it home.

  • as a youngster i harrowed many an acre on a 44, our farm had 720 acres at the time. it would pull 12 (i think) sections of harrow in 3 rd gear, sometimes in 4th if the conditions were right. our hired hand plowed a 100 acre of clover with a 3 bottom plow but when he was done so was the exhaust manifold. dad bought the tractor used in the late 50's early 60's and the only rear dangerous occurence was that the nut holding one of the rear wheels on came loose several years after being worked on, if i owned one today i would check that. my brother found a 44 for sale and it is in good running shape. by tommorrow i may own it!!!! this will not be my working tractor, just a nostalga thing. old tractors belong in parades ken

  • My dad has a 1949 MH 22 with a Massey loader that has been a good tractor. He has owned it since about 1968. Originally sold we think from the dealer in Winchester,IN. It has loaded one heck of alot of manure in its life and a good share of rocks too.It is semi-retired since we got a skid loader a few years ago, but I still used it to pick up a few rocks this spring, just for exercise.I like the looks of those 444's, they look streamlined.

  • My 30 Massey Hassis clutch stuck one time. I took the cover off from under the clutch and held the clutch peddle down and took a screw driver and forced it between the plate and disk, that worked for me. Sometimes if they set for awhile the plate will stick, when I know it will be awhile before I will use any of my older tractors I will block the clutch down to keep them open.

  • I bought a new 44 in 1947 used it 5 years than traded it in on a 1953 44 which had not been sold yet, I put power steering on it as soon as I got it. I used it for 17 years before I over hauled it, It was my big tractor till 1959, I still use it for lighter work, and have not overhauled it since that first time, It is still in good shape and looks really good, It has been a very good tractor, I also have a 30 model I bought new in 1952 I put a loader on it and I still use it very often, I don't know what I would have done without it, I have just overhauled it once but it does need it again, I also have 2 more 30s in running shape.

  • We farmed with a massey 55,44 and 101Sr-6cylinder Chrysler. The 44 was a powerful versatile tractor.It was a 5 speed. We overhauled it with M&W pistons for incresed HP. I believe we boosted the hp to 65 or more, we were never quite sure. But the difference was amazing, we could outpull a 560 IHC anytime,aw those were the good old days.

  • Was metal detecting in a yard, my five year old son came up behind me and jokingly I asked him what he would like me to find for him. He said a little tractor with a man on it. While he was whatching me I proceeded to dig up a very small toy tractor with a man on it. It was incased in mud and about five inches down. That was 25 years ago. I just now got on this page to discover it is a Massey Harris 44. Any info on it would be appriciated.
