That weld would be a deal breaker for me.
There's lots of them around. I suggest you keep looking.

I can not even figure what would have caused a crack like that. It seems to ride OK. I did not get a I have to have this tractor now vibe.

There are better tractors out there...

Here is one


Here is what I like (860 and 861). 5 speed and live PTO

And for $1600 more you get substantially more tractor...

That took me less than 5 minutes to find some other options. Don't be dazzled by fancy paint, you can always do that to one of these ones in need of paint. Some lookalike they have been painted a couple times.

So my advice is go for a 8xx or 4000 series. More tractor, same size. 5 speed and live PTO are nice to look for also.

I was looking for a tractor to replace my 8n, with a few more features. I have a JD 870 with front loader. I will look at the Ford 4000. That is the problem with being retired, and to much time on my hands. Should just stay with my 8n, I am just tired of having to engage the pto when raising the brush hog to get it out of the shop. I made up my mind yesterday I did not want the 601. Thanks for the links. I know about not being fooled about a paint job. My 8n does not look perfect, but it does the job.
