Hi like most things some people swear by them and some swear at them. here in Manitoba if you talk dexta guys didn't like them I get comments like didn't have the power to pull steam of boiling water. but there are guys around the world that love them. seems to run in areas guys here loved the Major more. just the same as green or red tractors i guess. i think cdmn pretty much covered the issues just watch like you would on any tractor you want to buy. and most parts are available from agriline products in the U.K if your in north america. just watch the shipping cost on heavy parts. not sure how many parts are still available from ford N/H either now.

The bad: Fenders rust badly near axle mounts. Running boards are thin metal, need fenders to support them. Grille shell rusts badly near the top front. Third link pin is very tight in the rear housing, virtually imnpossible to remove. Fender to axle bolts are much the same. No power steering.

The good: Nice little tractor which is quite economical. Light enough to haul behind a pickup truck. Takes little space in storage. Blue instead of Grey or Red to distinguish from a Ferguson. Was British equivalent to a 600 series diesel. Six speeds instead of four. Had a tariff advantage for sales in Canada. Some had live pto. Just about all parts are available new, including sheet metal, which is expensive though.
