I am looking at a Ford 120 tractor. Has 12 hp kohler (1 cyl), a 38" tiller, a 48" mower deck, and a 2 stage snowblower. I have 3 questions. First, what is this set up worth? 2nd, is the tractor powerful enough to run these attachments well? 3rd, how are these for lawnmowing (it is NOT hydrostatic, but 3spd plus a low gear). The tiller and blower look to be pretty well made, the tractor appears to be somewhat dated and questionable. Can anyone fill me in on this?

The f120 is great.Im 33,and i grew up with it.My uncle brought the tractor new with tiller,2 stage blower,slicker bar,and front end loader.It was 2000 dollers with all that in 1968.The tiller is a good.The snower blower can really bail some snow!Its good to cause you can raise it up with it still going for high snow.Part are a problem.The trans parts now are a piece trans,you can get all gears for it.Biggest problem i had has been finding front axles.We bent a couple over the years.Bushing in front axles your best to just make new.I have 2 f120.I got tired of taking bucket off for mower deck.Mower deck can cut some grass.Part go to ford or new holland.They still use pullys and other parts in newer mower decks.The front end loader dug my house basement.I love f120,or like we like to call her "the horse".I rebuilt it twice.I have complete manual email me if you need info.

From what you've said it has to be the old 120. It was made from 67-71. In 72 on they either had a 42 or 50" deck.I hav e 120 that had a 12 hp on until I put on a 16 Kohler. The 12 was fine on a 42" deck. My only concern is parts availibility. Good Luck

i own a ford 120 garden tractor with the 12hp kohler. its been sitting in a shed for six years. i just got it running because of a bad gas tank. it has plenty of power for the mowerdeck and plows. i dont use my mowerdeck anymore so i took it off, so now its used to pull things and plow my yard. i would definently go with this tractor

The church that I go to was just donated an old ford with hydrostat and a 12 hp kohler engine. We use the tractor every year in a Stock Lawnmower Race for our Royal Rangers (like Boy Scouts). Tractor has only lost one race so far and that was against a Cub 18 hp hydrostat. I like the ford tractor.
