Congratulations on the new Ford. That's low hours for that tractor. Hope you can post some pics.
Yes Brian this is a 1980 model tractor, so it's 32 yrs old. That would only work out to around 17 hrs per year?
Kind of hard to believe, but the owner I bought it from seems real reliable and I don't doubt he put 428 hrs on in the past 8 yrs(said it had 123 when he got it).
If it's true that the average owner puts 100 hrs average on per year, that would work out to 3200 hrs.
It apears to be low hours, but doubt I'll ever know for sure.
The paints a little faded but still looks like a well maintained machine. Dan said he primarily used it to skid logs out of the timber and keep his logging trails mowed. That in itself amazes me since it's so easy to skid into a tree in the woods.
He had not intended to sell it until his wife asked hin if he wanted a new tractor. He bought a larger new John Deere 30?? model escapes me. He threw the implemints in on the deal as he needs larger for that..
