Underrated Tractor Posted by Glen Chandler on 06/29/2012

Bought this tractor in used condition eight years ago and have put it through much more than it was designed for!

Repairs in that time: 2 water pump kits. Would definitely buy again only here in Australia they are not common.

There is a Ford model made by Shibaura, so that's handy for getting parts if required, although I have not needed too many yet. Glow plugs give the usual problems, but a whiff of ether solves any starting problems! A very good tractor.
