    Default Hello, it's me.

    Hi guys and girls. I have been reading this forum for about 6 months and decided to join. I am semi-retired and enjoy tinkering with old stuff. I've had the same Ford tractor for 30 years (bought new in 1983) and it's never missed a day on the job- and never been a day in the dealership. To say that I do all my own maintenance is an understatement. Two years ago, I built a quick attach front-end loader for it. I own a 4' tiller, 5' Bush Hog, 5' backhoe, and 4' box blade that I use with this machine, but have also used post hole diggers and chippers with it as well.

    Welcome from Canada

    Would love to see pics of your tractor and all the things you have built for it.
    Kind Regards, Gary

    Nothing runs like a Deere, but I loved my Massey Ferguson

    Hello & welcome from Iowa.
    I have an 1100 myself, but I've only had it for several months. I'm new to tractors and this Ford is a workhorse, but I didn't think it was big enough for a hoe or maybe even post hole digger. You've probably forgotten more about these tractors than I will ever know, but it sounds like I should do some research. Got mine with only 300 hours on it, and its in pretty good shape.
    What type/size hoe do you recommend I look for?

    Welcome to TBN, we have some members who have and love working on those old Fords. I grew up farming with a 1955 Ford 600 dad bought new and we still have it. It looks pretty sad, but is still reliable.
