    Default Looking at Ford NH1715 - Need some thoughts!

    I've been lurking in and out of this forum for a long time. There is a lot of knowledge and thought provoking ideas traded around here. I need your input. I'm looking real hard at a 1715 with 445 hours, FEL, turf tires, 4 x 3 transmission. In fact I'm having it delivered towards the end of the week to demo it for a few days. I've been told that this unit has 27 PTO HP and 33 BHP. Everywhere I look seems to challenge that figure. Does anyone have, or know where I could look to get a true assessment of the HP rating? Also, given the above information, what would be a fair price for this unit? Thanks in advance for your comments.

    John Miller,

    Are those recent auctions?

    Anyone own or know someone who owns one of these that could shed some light on repair history?

    What is the breakout force of the loader?

    So many questions, so little time!!! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    <font color="blue"> Are those recent auctions?... </font>

    Those auction dates are listed...

    1715 is very similar to 1720, less hydraulic horsepower, less 3-pt lift capacity, basic transmission...

    This 1715 was sold as a leader model...

    Great to hear you are looking at the 1715. I have owned one about a year now and love this little tractor. It is just about the perfect size for my situation (33 acres). With FEL and bushhog it is perfectly balanced. The four wheel drive will come in handy, especial then things get sloppy. As far as depedability, I could not ask for more. It has been run in temps as low as 20 deg. to as high as 100 deg, and never missed a beat. It is hard to judge fuel use but I can go a long time on a tank of fuel. The only disadvantage I see is that all filters (fuel, oil, air and hydralics) cost in the range of $70, from local NH dealer.
    Bottom line---Great tractor for the money. Enjoy

    Alabama_Blue,

    Would you know off hand what the break out force of the FEL is? How much weight can you safely carry in the bucket. The reason I'm asking is I have some large boulders I want to move. I'm still waiting for the dealer to deliver it to find out myself.

    Don't quot me on this, but I think its somewhere around 2200 lb. My FEL was dealer installed "Bush Hog" brand,and I have been very happy with its performance. It will pick up the back end of the tractor if I hook the bucket in tree roots or such.
    Good luck with the boulders!

    Well I did it! I put together the deal today. I am now the proud new owner of a 1715. As luck would have it we are getting about a foot of snow at the moment, so I went out and plowed some snow with the bucket just to get some seat time. The only thing that drove me back inside was the cold temps. Tractor did everything I asked of it and more. Looking forward to some better weather so I can play on different tasks.

    Great to hear about the new addition to the family.
    I looked at the manual the other night and the FEL load is 1750, sorry for the wrong info.
    I dont have any dealings with snow down south here, but I used my 1715 two days this weekend to till and prepare our garden, then bushhogged about 4 acres. I cant live without it! Two good days of work, not solid running, but good work and used a little over 1/2 tank of fuel!
