My Little Tank Posted by Ken Franklin on 01/11/2012

I bought this 1200 used with 50 hrs on it from a guy that restores and sells tractors. He had 3 Kubotas and this 1980 ford 1200. This thing looked like a tank compared to the Kubotas and I had already owned a Kubota and loved it.

I bought the Ford and added a Yanmar 3 pt backhoe and use it for everything. Its been really reliable and takes a beating. Replaced a few hoses and pistons seals over the years and that is it. And maybe a battery or two. Love my little tank. They just don't make them like this anymore!

ITEM INFORMATION
Model year: 1980 Date Purchased: 04/02/2004 Number of Hours: 146
