I didn't have time to look at them, tonight, but there are videos of the FF20 on You Tube. Just by looking at the pictures, I would guess they were made in the 80's. Like I said, that's just my guess though. I'll have to check it out more later... looks like an interesting machine.

Well, I guess its to late now. But the FF20 was the second largest (in sheer size) sears ever sold. They had 20hp onans. hydro trans and hydro lift. There a bit rare.

It's never too late to talk about anything here.
What else can you tell us about them, specs, when made, who made them, what was the biggest model, attachments, anything else???
Pictures

One of these is on my want list.

I cant say anything for sure. Like mike said. there where FF18s, FF20s, and FF24s. They where built in the early 80s by roper for sears. Sears had them made so they could compete with the bigger LG manufactures. They could run standard cat 0 3pt stuff. Everything on these tractors where shaft driven. But, the only draw back was it only had one lever for all 3 lift points. Every thing was hydraulic.

I have heard alot of envy for the ff sears series. I have only seen pictures of old ones that are never good looking tractors.

Man with many tractors

Thank you for this ad showing what one should look like in new condition.

Since the GTV/16 I have looks like these, I'm rather partial to them. Nice FF 24 you have.
