As I age I see an increased need for a loader for my '69 Ford 4000 to help keep up my several acres with lots of trees. I stumbled across one a few months ago at a golf course near my house. It is mounted on a Ford 2000, 3000 or 4000, about the same vintage as mine. I inquired, and the golf course manager said that the tractor had a blown engine, and he was contemplating replacing the engine with one on another tractor of the same vintage, but that had burned. According to him, the fire never reached the engine. I'm not so sure, but that's not a great concern.

Last week I contacted him again, and he said he had decided not to try to make the engine swap. He said that I could have both tractors for $2,000. The tractor with the blown engine, and on which the loader is mounted, appears to be complete and in very good condition; surface rust only. It has nearly new turf tires, and the fronts look usable. I forget to post the side-view photo of the loader, but it is a 2400 QT, by Bushhog, I beleive. Both tractors are diesel; mine is gas, FWIW.

I'm thinking I could remove the loader, put it on my 4000, clean up the other tractor and sell it as-is and re-coup some of my purchase price. There are some salvageable parts on the burned carcass, which I would have to haul away also as part of the transaction.

Some of you Ford guys can probably tell me whether these two dead tractors are 2000, 3000, or 4000—or tell me how to determine that.

Is this any kind of a deal, or am I nuts?

Your thoughts, please.

In the paper today near Dickson, TN there is a 1994 New Holland tractor, all wheel drive, 50 hp, 1773 hrs, with loader, clean looking with good paint and tires for $2600. Phone number is (615)-784-3306. Bit of a drive but easier than rebuilding what your pictures show. Don't know anything else about it.

The both look like 3000's due to the square rear trumpets. The 2000's had round trumpets.

Going to be hard to deal with all that dead iron without a loader on a running tractor now ? Got any you can borrow ? You say close to you so that makes to deal all the better. Looks like a lot of good parts and a good loader too.

If you are concerned about engine and trans bolting up depending on model, Ford built them all the same within certain ranges, and 2,3, and 4 should be all the same.

I agree you should be able to sell enough to come close to getting loader for near nothing. Model numbers at red arrow should reveal tractor model numbers. Loader will fit your 4000.

'65 up numbers are stamped on the other side. If they are unreadable 2000, 3000 are outboard dry brakes (outer end of axle), 4000 are inboard wet brakes. By the two arm steering box the carcass is a 2 or 3000.

I don't think that's too far out of line. If you just used the loader and peddled the rest for parts you'd have a nice loader for cheap. Me, I'd have to fix it and have two tractors.
