Ok, so I wrote earlier about a ford 2000 and decided to pass. not much difference than my other tractor in hp, no diff lock , limited gearing.Now I see a ford 3000 with diff lock, 8 spd, one remote, tires seem ok, no major issues listed by the dealer. A little far to go , but I think I can take care of that too. Questions I would have from more experienced buyers is, what else should I ask about? Would you make a compression test, dry, wet , or both a condition of sale, and is this usually done?What if the dealer refuses for whatever reason to do or allow the test, would you bother to go look at it? I want to use it for hobby farming, a back up to the kubota for field mowing, and also because I always liked the look of Ford tractors. I have a two bottom plow, and 5 ft cutter, all cat 1. Probably would have less than 50-100 hrs of use a year.
