My dad farmed with them in the day.
The ones with the dual clutch (Live PTO) are more
desirable if you want to use it. power steering
is an option. Dads never had it with loaders on
and none of mine do, I never find it heavy to
steer if its all in good order and greased dad
said the same, Power steering has spoiled most
young guys LOL, Supers have position /Draft
control hydraulics and diff lock so that's also a
some parts are available from ford still but are
expensive. There are a lot of repro parts around
the world, And also a lot of used stuff to. I have
9 of them here in my collection and use some of
them for grass cutting in the yard and fields with
no problems.
Over all for it's age its still a good tractor.
As With most Tractors there are things To watch
for like water in the oil and the general stuff
that applies to all makes.
I have a customer that has a green and yellow
tractor with problems galore, his repair bill on
it is gonna be huge.
I told him a Fordson could be totally re built
for less than repairing his and he would still be
in pocket with it by $3000 with the cost of green
parts he needs, 4 parts can cost as much as a
whole major.
If ya have any more questions please ask.
Regards Robert
