IH B414 Posted by gordon bennett on 05/18/2013

I bought this vintage tractor for grass topping and general use on a small farm. It's proved to be quite reliable over the years but is in no way what you could call a 'looker'. A workhorse.

Few problems this year with refusing to start in very cold weather. Engine appeared to be seized but freed up by itself when weather warmer. Latest problem with rear wheel punctures. I should buy some new rims and tires, maybe. Brakes don't work properly and PTO difficult to engage, but not big issues. Had a quick look at fixing brakes but appeared too difficult to remove bolts. All in all, a good little vintage tractor.
