"I have had this tractor since I bought my Farm. It is a good little machine but it does consume some oil. The hydraulics don't work well when it's cold out and it doesn't have very much power, but it get's the job done. I would recommend a diesel not the 3 cylinder gas."

'63 Ford Industrial Tractor
by Alan Smith
Model year: 1963Date Purchased: 2010-12-15Number of Hours:
"I was a foreman on a job 30+ years ago and the Sup. had this tractor on the job. I met him again 4 yrs. ago and he sold me the tractor a couple of months before he died.
Put a new battery in it, a new rear tire, changed oils, and hydraulic fluids, points, spark plugs, greased etc. and she runs like a top. Did a quick paint job on it---nothing fancy, but looks okay.
Strong front end loader w/12 gpm pump, and a heavy 6' Gannon Box blade on the rear, I've added 8' long x 1' wide forks that hook into a brackets welded into the base of the bucket when needed and that also serve as loading ramps for it on to the car hauler trailer.
This is still a working tractor---I've graded several lots with it and built building pads, a storm control channel, Demo'd a house that had been partially burnt, and use it around the house and shop as a wheel barrow, hoist, to pull whatever and grade our dirt road with it along with my sisters place and brothers. Planning on getting a auger for it also.
It's not as fast as a Case 580 or anything new with auto shifting and easy operator controls, but hey I'm not in a hurry anymore either, and we get it done just the same.
Love this tractor. "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Strong little skip loader with a PTO and Gannon.Cons: Lack of foot throttle requires 3rd hand to operate bucket smoothly.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA CAI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"Great mid-sized tractor. Needed a carb, Holley
replaced by Zenith, much better carb, twin stick
8 speed, live PTO...
Have hauled 10cord of fire wood this fall, came with Turf tires, put on double link chains, now will pull down a house, economical to run, fun compact tractor, plow much snow here in upstate NY. Never was a Ford car guy, but I can say I'm a Ford tractor fan! Easy to work on also!"

Ford 2000 in Line 4 Cylinder 6 Volt System
by David Grohman
Model year: 1964Date Purchased: 1984-07-07Number of Hours: 725
"I purchased this Ford 2000 tractor, Ford brush hog, Ford 6 way adjustable rear blade, 1 bottom plow, cultivator, rear scoop & dump bucket in 1984 from the original owner.
It was in excellent condition from being stored inside and had very low hours. He had used it for his landscaping nursery business at his home from 1964 until he retired and closed his business in 1968. He would start it up a couple of times every year and putt around his property on it.
I have kept it stored in my garage when not in use for the last 29 years. I do all of my own maintenance and necessary repairs. I used the tractor for doing landscaping around my home, brush hogging the field, York raking the gravel driveway, and clearing snow. It has been a workhorse for what I require out of it. It has not been used for anything other than sitting in my garage for the last 7 years, looking pretty! It still looks like it did the day I purchased it 29 years ago. "

"A forty year old machine with only 1800 hours. Only one previous owner who primarily used it to tend his small garden and help some of his small town neighbors have a garden. Replaced cracked exhaust manifold and two dry-rotted front tires.
"Bluford" does a great job plowing, harrowing, bush hog, and pushing/pulling dirt around with the 6' blade---I'm having a ball!"
