(quoted from post at 08:12:24 09/21/21) 8n's had some issues with longivity. If you used em hard or constant, they was always in need of engine overhaul. And the pump for 3 point were notorious for wearing out and allowing the 3 point to creep down when when in a raised position.
One in good mechanical shape is handy, and easy to get on and off of. But those cute little low to the ground tractors have never been my thing personally. Dad had a semi wore out one when I was a kid. Have never had a desire to have one since.


Red, I am not a great fan of the N's, but what you wrote is total male bovine excrement!

The longevity of the N engines was no worse (or better) than their contemporaries, and the hydraulic pump was NOT "notorious for wearing out" "allowing the 3 point to creep down".

I can understand you not being an "N" fan, but why post such MBE?

They are a good little tractor for what you need. I would recommend you look at auctions for one instead of suffering through the price gouging aimed at the unwitting. It's fall, so there should be several consignment auctions coming up in the next month or so.

That price is to high for that Ford. I would suggest you look at a slightly newer tractor that has live power, live hydraulics and power steering. There are lots of options, but one of my favorites is an Oliver 550.
