Hi, I think I came across what I think is a Fordson Major diesel for sale with backhoe and front loader. Kinda interested in it. No idea if it runs. Owner wants $3500 for it. He says the engine was rebuilt and has less than 500hrs on it, but the starter doesn't work and needs replacement. Not sure now if he has the part or not. The tractor was last run about 2 yrs ago. The owner wasn't actually present but I got this info through a coworker of his that called him. I think he said it was 1965, but didn't say exactly what model. I searched the bellhousing around the battery, as well as the block but couldn't find a serial number anywhere. It looks like it has 6F and 2R tranny. If it has the high/low transmission, where would the shifter be located? Does it slow the pto like a sherman in a Ford? Originally thought it would be nice to be able to remove the backhoe and use the pto for farm implements, but noticed no lift arms or toplink. So this tractor is dedicated to backhoe work I guess, or is there a conversion available for using a 3pt? THe backhoe is so heavy I doubt I could take it off anyway... unlike the backhoe on my Ford 8n. Here are some pics. Is this a Fordson Power Major? Is the price in the right ballpark? Probably dumb questions, but I know next to nothing about Fordsons. Thanks!
