Kinda shopping for one of these... Some pictures that I see have a red checkerboard grill and some do not. Which models/years have the
checkerboard grille? Right now leaning towards a row crop narrow front.

Ok thanks. So the 901s I?ve seen with a gray grille are 57?s?

They're not 901s. They're 900s. And yes, 55 - 57 on the *00 series.

901 series tractors have egg crate grills.

900 series tractors have all grey vertical bar grills without the red egg crate insert.

Some of the last 800 and 600 models made had "Powermaster" decals on them even though they were not 801/901 series tractors and still had the all grey grills.

I believe the 1957 year model 800 and 900 series had the powermaster decals.

Wayne you are pretty much correct. When I was removing paint from my 960's hood to prepare for painting I found the "shadow" of the Powermaster decal on the original paint under later paint. They had apparently removed the decal and scuffed the paint for prep.

moresmoke, you better have your life insurance paid up if you are going to get a NFE tractor. You can't drive one of those ten feet without it flipping over on you. At least that is similar to what you are soon going to be told here. Until recently I had three Ford 4 cyl. NFEs. The NFE makes them very nimble and in twenty years I don't think any of them ever lifted a tire off the ground. WFE tractors that I have had on three wheels have been Ford 841, Kubota 190DT, Kubota B8200, Case 430.

Lol!

I?ve been driving tractors for 33 years, started at the ripe age of 8. Haven?t rolled one yet. I?ve tried pretty hard. I?m a believer that if you hit the axle stop
on a wide front you are probably going over anyway. The closest I have come to rolling a tractor was a 7R Deere with MFWD and a loader. The only
reason it didn?t go over was a well placed pile of bales that caught the loader bucket.

As far as the life insurance comment, this one is to be the SWMBO?s tractor!

Here are pics of the before and after on a very early 1957 850 Powermaster, with power steering. The tractor had a dump front end loader on it when purchased. I took that off and sold it and just cleaned it up a bit, replaced the seals in the power steering cylinders and painted it with new decals (including the early "spinning wheel" Powermaster decals). Good luck. Good, handy, easy to start and maintain tractors, even with the original 6 volt systems.
