Don't know how much you are willing to spend, so is hard to recommend specifics. When I was looking for a cheap farm hoe. 8000 dollars. I went to a used dealer I tractor pull with. He recommended I stay with a Case 2 wheel drive. Which he had none of. just Ford and JD. I ended up with a 480E Case.because it just weights 10000 lbs. can haul it on a 14000 lb. trailer and pull it with a single wheel pickup. It isn't very good looking but works good. I have repacked every cylinder, I think. and put most of the bushings in. My hoe also has a hyd thumb. wished it had a clam-shell buckett. Get one new enough to get a Cummins engine. They have 4 valve covers. almost last forever. Opinions are like belly-buttons, everybody has one. Vic
