Ford 3930 Is big enough to get things done Posted by John Langlois on 01/05/2012

When we first bought the farm I entertained the idea of getting a small, less expensive tractor.
Fortunately, I had neighbors that let me use their John Deere small tractor and a 30 HP Ford.

I am so glad I got to use both because it was the everyday tasks of moving hay bales or using the front end loader that made me see that the smaller tractor was not up to the tasks.

I also have a fear of turning the tractor over.
The wider stance of the Ford felt more secure on sloped terrain, especially when going over limbs or rocks.
The 30 HP Kubota caught my attention. However, the additional $20,000 made the Ford look much more attractive.

I also purchased a 6-foot bush hog and a front end hay fork.

Changing from the FEL to the hay-fork takes at least 30 minutes, so a quick-connect mechanism would be welcomed.

I have replaced 4 hydraulic hoses because one blew and rest seemed aged.
I am replacing the tubed tires with tubeless soon.
