I have disliked the 2020/2030 style tractors from the beginning,,we a bunch of them at the dealership I worked at,,I have seen "all" the bad things, some you would never dream of....I have a 2030 in here now with hydraulic issues,,I can sort them out fairly fast anymore..

I'am with you on that thought Tim, I've always felt Dubuque (now Mannhiem) engineering & workmanship lacked a lot of design & lasting quality ; and they sure did'nt have the longevity of the Waterloo 3020 - 4020 engines...

Yes,, they are frustrating to repair, I just dread it when one shows up, this one, a 2030, had a hydraulic chatter, which was the outlet valve backed out,,now for the steering the bell crank in the front is wobbled out, tie rods are bad,,they sent all the power for the steering down through the tie rods, they won"t stand the strain, it has one of those silly shifter latches that we had to put on back in the 70"s, I"m doing away with that..

My dad bought and sold used tactors and equipment and in our area(small and city farmers)it was much easier to sell a 2020 than a 2510,but if I have to use it or work on it the 2510 is 10 times the tractor(except for the hyd pump issues some had).Funny thing dad's 2510 had the little hyd. pump and it would outlift either of my 3020's.We used 46A laders on all three.

With the 60 C project done maybe you would not mind building a concept tractor? I forgot to mention my funds for such a project are limited. Maybe before I get too old.
