    One advantage of 4 wheel drive is you may be able to get along without chains for snow plowing if that is an intended use, especially if you have ag tires. Chains can be a clearence problem with fenders and front tie rod ends.

    Tractors only had 2WD for years and years before 4WD. Farmers got by just fine then.

    Before tractors there were horses. Farmers got by just fine with them too. Have fun.

    If you are looking for a tough, older tractor with 2wd, 3PH, around 45 HP, you would be hard pressed to beat a diesel Farmall 504. We have 2 that have been in the family since they were new. They are like the "Energizer Bunny" of tractors.
