Hello to all, new to the site, looks like tons of information and a lot of nice tractors here. What I have is a 1981 FF/20 that is in I'd say very good condition, tractor is complete with shrouding and side panels, tractor has spent its life in California, there is no rust, although it could use some paint. Starts easy, runs good with no smoke, it has a two speed front and rear shaft driven PTO, 1000/2000 rpm, high/low axle, and a type "O" 3-point hitch. I have a 54" Dozer blade and a 48" rotary tiller, both are also craftsman, I have the owners manuals for both PTO's, blade, hitch,tiller and tractor. I've owned her since 1994, she has not been abused, the only problem that I'm aware of is she labors to pick up the tiller, have never done anything with the cylinder or valve. Well I'm out of breath, take a look and let me know what ya'll think.

I'm forgetting my manners as well... welcome to the forum!! .. now back to the tractor!!!  :smilewink: :smilewink:

 

Well, it's only 12 to 14 hours away--pretty close seeing as I'm in the middle of the Great Basin Desert--heck even the lizards carry canteens out here!! :smilewink:

 

I just sold my Dayton 3Z68B (MTD995), and hopefully this will fit the bill. 

 

Do these machines have power steering?  After horsing the Dayton around, it's almost a "must"...

Well, I've talked with DavidP, and decided not to get it... if anyone else has an interest, go for it.

welcome to GTtalk! glad you found this website! theres a bunch of great old iron addicts here.
that is a great tractor you have. could'nt say how much its worth, but the ff is a rare old tractor. the pto and tiller are even harder to find. I just got back from a road trip to pick up a ff20 parts tractor, but I dont think I would want to go to all the way to California for one. Of course, there always is shipping!
