I have a 81" 1100 4WD and I love it. I use it to mow my pasture with my 5" finish mower, and prefer it vs my 35 HP and 45 HP tractors for mowing. So maneueverable. 2 gallons diesel mowing all day.
The front end is too light to handle heavy implements, but I have used it with my 5" bushhog in tight places vs my bigger tractor. The 3PH will pick up more than the front end will stay down on. A loader would offset that, but likely would make for tight steering.
Yes it is tiny, but with 4WD ( a must with a loader), it can be a handy tool.
Useless without 4WD except for mowing in the flat.
I have had mine for 14 years, and other than oil/filter/1 new battery change and replacing tie-rod boot rubbers, I have done no maintenance on mine.
Every tool has it"s use.
BTW: Each F-1100 I see for sale goes for more than N series ford, and many 35-45 HP tractors. Mine has 4WD and differential lock, and traction is always less than power. These tiny tractors are nice and useful, but every tool has its use, a 1100 won"t plow even one row, much less two. Mowing great, I use mine with a rear dirt scoop, and it will load more dirt than the front end will stay down for. It"s according to what you want and need.
