    Default Ford 1100

    How efficient would a ford 1100 2wd be with a 4ft tiller, 4' scraper blade, and 4' bushhog? I'm thinking its too small but the guy that owns it trying to sell it to me swears it handles it without a hitch. Figured I'd research a little before I waste an hour drive to see it fail or maybe be proven wrong. In thinking the bush hog will for sure be an epic fail.

    Got my 4WD 1100 last year with FEL, tiller, cultivator, disc, shredder, plow, tiller, etc. It is one tough little tractor. But 4WD makes a huge difference in any sort of loose soil (garden), loading the FEL (wood mulch), moving snow (back blade).
    I don't know if using the differential lock in 2WD would make up for the lack of 4WD; I haven't tried it.
    I love this tractor and can't believe the work I can get done with such a small tractor (its a diesel, maybe they all are). But I'm sure glad I've got the 4WD for the work I do. Only way I could afford to become a tractor owner. $5500 for everything, the tractor had 303 hours when I bought it. Hope this info helps a bit.

    The 00 series were good tractors. But I think the 1100 would be happier with a 3ft mower or 3ft tiller. I run a 4ft tiller on my Ford 1600. And it can make the front end bounce around sometimes. 2wd tractors are certainly worth something. But a diff lock will never match 4wd. With wheel weights and chains, the 2wd could be usable.
