First, this tractor starts when others won't.
Second, it features rock-solid construction.
Third, nearly every single part continues to be available from Ford/New Holland.
Fourth, it has the power and weight to perform nearly any task.
Fifth, with the MFWD 4-wheel drive arrangement (ours has it) not much stands in its way; mud, snow, swamp, etc.
Sixth, the Category II 3-point is heavy-duty. Seventh, we can repair it ourselves. Eighth, it handles large implements (we have a 7-foot Ford 907 Flail Mover) with ease.
Ninth, add a loader (we have one) and you can do pretty much and small, medium or large job with this machine.
Tenth (finally): Ford tractor: blue machine with white rims and blue insets makes for one very sharp machine!
