7040 ?'s

My brother is looking at buying a 7040 but since we are both IH guys we know little about AC"s. First question is: The cab is shot(rusted out on lower region, door missing, couple of window broke and interior is shot). Did they make these tractors in a "open station" model? If so which tractors use the same platform and fender combo? The turbo is also bad on it.(has a hole in it) We were thinking of getting a used one. Is it worth it and what other tractor used the same turbo and what size and name of turbo is it? We are looking at using Heitman Tractor out of WI. Are they good to deal with? PS they only want $1,500 out of the tractor.

The tractor has a Power Director. The gentleman selling it is a co-workers father and they said the everything worked just fine when they parked it. They were just upgrading. Rear tires are 18.4-38 Firestone 23* Radial @50% and the fronts are bigger than 11.00-16! Maybe 14.1's and they are shot! Three point is tight. Seems like a good deal for $1,500.

14Ls were actually great fronts for a full rack of front weights. I"m a little concerned about the hole in the blower is it on the driver (manifold) or compressor side? I"m confused about it running great with a hole in the turbo but anyway I"m not saying it is too high unless one of the things has a problem. The torque limiter issue is big time and has been a problem for the 7000 series Power Director tractor and requires a split to repair unless you do it yourself if you take it to a shop equates to a lot of moola. I would suggest you check with a local repair shop for a rough guess on that cost for leverage bargaining. This a rough guess but I"m thinking if it needs a torque limiter and engine seal change out, used turbo and a new set of batteries and this purely a guess you"ll have over $3500+ the 1500 in it, which is about what a good one with a decent cab will bring knowing the TL is tight. My .002cents worth

Can"t tell you much about the value. I"m pretty sure you could get about all the 7000 series tractors in an open station but they only made it from 1975 thru 1977 so fenders might be an issue however most 7000 fenders might work the big issue is it a Power Director or Powershift? The turbo should have a tag as to the builder maybe Air research, Switzer or whatever. The price seems high unless you can verify that the torque limiter is sound and doesn"t slip. I don"t know where you are located but if in a cold weather location you will need four battery start and I"m guessing it will need all four the injection pump will probably need checked out. The charging system will probably be a Neihoff brushless which is no longer available. How about tire condition, 18.4 X 38 rears and 11.00 X 16 fronts? Other than that your good. IMHO CT

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
