I've got one of each (of brands you mentioned) plus a few others. Deere 300B, Ford 4000 Industrial and a Case 580CK. Also an IH 3414 and a Pettibone-Multihoe LDA.

The Deere 300B is by far the nicest to operate and drive. Also uses the most proprietary parts, although I've never had any trouble getting any. It is a little "Cadillac" compared to the rest.

The Case 580CK is very rugged but I hate the torque-converter drive, and never liked the foot-
pedal swing on the hoe.

The Ford 4000 Industrial is crude but rugged hoe. Mine has the Sherman over-and-under aux. transmission. If it did NOT have that, I would like it a lot less.

The Pettibone is a big ugly monster but uses more generic truck parts then any of the others. Has a torque converter drive with a power-shift trans, Detroit Diesel 3-53 engine, and air-over-hydraulic truck brakes.

The IH 3414 is basically a beefed up British farm tractor. Very rugged, crude gear-reverser, odd-
ball two-pump hydraulics with a rack-and-pinion hoe swing. Parts are mostly British and not always easy to find in the US.

I just bought a 1968 MF 3165 basically a beefier 165 to handle the hoe and loader, it has a perkins 203 diesel(4500 hours), shuttle shift overall in good shape...paid 3500...It does have the barrel type swing cylinder mechanism and works fine, parts may be hard to find for it if it goes
