    Re: looking at ford 4400 industrial

    It is a live PTO. I have a similar feeling about the price. The only big $ item I see it needing is the tires. I think i can get by with chains for now since I will rarely need to run on the road.

    oh, and tach does not work so hours are a mystery. Seems to be in that range however given wear on pedals. I dont think it has 10k plus hours on it, but no way to know for sure now.

    Re: looking at ford 4400 industrial

    thank you for the input. Hopefully I can see it tonight. Honestly, i don't know what the harley rakes are worth either. If it works well for gravel driveways, I would be putting it to use quite often...
