    Default Ford 1200

    Hello all,

    I'm looking at a Ford 1200 with 4wd with FEL and 3 pt mower. It seems to run well and has new rear tires. The price is $2400.00. It has about 1100 hours on it. Not looking for heavy use, It seems like a reasonable deal. Any input would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    The old Ford 1000 series tractors were tanks. I owned and operated an 1100 for many years. The hours are not a big issue, getting replacement parts may be a problem.

    I have been looking for mechanical parts for a 1200 for three years. They are not available or someone has a bone and wants their weight in gold. Your taking a chance in a 2400 dollar paper weight which may last forever or sink the following day. Why not buy something a bit more expensive with parts availability ? By the way if your in Vegas...... roll the dice !
