Hey Guys,

So Im a John Deere Nut but I also have a little bit of a taste for the fords as well. We use both JD's and ford's on the farm. I caught wind of a possible ford 2000 offset near me a few years back and I was finally able to go look at, hoping it would be a offset becuase I know their rarity plus I could use it my vegetable crops. Well unfortunatly the tractor turned out to be a 1964 Ford 2000 Gas Rowcrop with the drop rear axles, wide front, power steering and power adjust wheels. It also has near mint sheetmetal. The original owner seems to think it has 1800 original hours and I believe he could be right.

My question is are these 2000RC tractors a good one to own and are they worth anything near a 2000 offset?? Im assuming the offset are worth more but extra info is always a help. Are these a rare tractor? Or are they common?

Any help and info would be appreciated!
Thanks!!
Jeff N. Rottkamp

I think their less 2000 Row crop then 2000 off set.I've been told the 4000 were less than $200.00 more than a 2000 so dealer push the higher HP ,same size tractor.

I agree with Ultradog, though I'd want a wide front. 4-cylinder 2000's of any flavor seem to be scarce around here. I've only seen a couple 2000 utilities, one 2000 RC, and never a 2000 offset. Even the 3-cylinder 2000's aren't what you'd call real common... seems the 3000 was much more popular here.

The only 3 cyl. NF you'll find is the 4200, unless you find some kind of homemade/modified/mutt.

We have a 5200 tricycle & can swap out the wide front of our 4200 to make tricycle also for the 5200 you only need the adapter plate from New Holland there still here on the dealer shelfs in the south, but you will pay big for them. I have a friend that has a 6600 Ford with dual power with tricycle front end, & uses a New Idea 2 row picker on it. Zack

Hello Chris , All 4200 and 5200 Row Crop tractors use Hydraulic steering motors , very unique and sometimes very hard to get certain parts for them , plus if its a S.O.S. Row Crop all of the shifter parts are special too , I had to make the last set of cables for a 5200 S.O.S. I worked on . Thanks Tony

A 2000 would be a nice tractor to own, though personally I'd rather have a NF. The 134 would be much less thirsty than the 172. For most of the things you'd do with one you don't need the extra hp anyway.
Around here I rarely see the 7XX/2000 RCs. 9XX/4000 much more common.

I just bought a 2000 row crop a few weeks ago. it is a select o speed narrow front gas. I have been wondering the same thing of how rare they are. I have seen more offsets for sale through the years than rowcrops. I don't know if that makes 2000 rowcrops more rare or people just don't get rid of them. You see several 4000's but never a 2000. Regardless of how rare they are I feel lucky to find the one I got.

imho.. of all the rowcrops, the 2000 are the hardest to find.. but all the rowcrops are less rare than the offsets.. with the exception of a HI crop, rowcrop. them are like hens teeth too.

So a 2000 Rowcrop with all those goodies is quite rare then?

Other then taller rear tires and taller front knees and spindles, what is the difference between a Row crop and high crop?

Could someone convert a RC into a HC if need be??
I need a taller tractor for bedded veggie crops.

Thankyou for all your help!

rowcrops are common... offset very uncommon.. the 2000 more uncommon than the 541.. and a diesel in either or a true hicrop in either even more rare.

the 2000 rowcrop will have a 134ci red tiger engine.. about 34 hp.. the wide front end IMHO is as strong or better than an ag model wide front. PS is always a plus.

for pre 65 machines....The only thing I use an ag chassie machine for anymore is for loader work. otherwise I'm on a rowcrop mowing. I love them for mowing. I like being a lil more high up.. etc.

the 2 piece pediastal on that late rowcrop is IMHO a better deal than the 1 piece bolster on the earlier units.

value will be based on condition and tires.. etc. I've bought rowcrops in bad but running condition from 800$ up into 3000$ range for a minty one with options I wanted.

most of them fall in the center.. just like an ag modle...

if it has a 5spd trans.. and it's the original trans.. it will be a dual clutch...
