Can anyone tell me about this tractor? How fast can you take the loader off? Any problems one should look for when checking one out. Whats a fair price for a 1990 276 with around 7000 thousand hours on it? Thanks for any replies.

I don't know a whole lot about the Versatiles.... If it's a 276 though, it is a Versatile. I think the 276II's were upgraded to a Ford 268T engine. When the 9030's came out there were some fairly large upgrades in terms of axles and such. To be perfectly honest, the bi-di's around my area are mostly used as chore tractors, loader tractors.... snow blowers and every other miserable hard prickish job that can be thrown at them. At 7000 hours, absolutely anything could be wrong with one. The biggest things I would watch for are the engines, the hydrostat's and the PTO clutches. At least that's what's been changed in some of the local ones around here that I know of. Whether it has the 4BT3.9 Cummins engine or the Ford 268 turbo, either engine is jacked to the very upper limit of it's safe continous power limit... so if it's been worked, it's going to have some wear on it. Personally, I would go over one with a fine tooth comb. Warm it up, work it, etc to see how it behaves, and how it pulls. Either that or a pretty good warranty from a dealer....
The loader, I believe it will fall off in 10 minutes or so. It's basically just a QT farm loader; it just mounts on the posteriour end....
I wouldn't really want to speculate too much on price. I'd say 20 would be plenty, and mabey quite rich at 7000 hours...
HTH.

Rod,
Thanks for the reply, Just wondering what people thought they were worth.. They are asking almost $20,000 for this one, and I thought that was kinda high for that many hours. I don't know of any around my area so I have nothing to go by. They look like they would be really nice for loader work. thanks again.
