I have been looking at a ac 180 gas about 3900 hrs the price is 4000. I have also been looking at a mf 265 diesel about 3600 hrs the price is 7500. Does anyone have any comments on either tractor, both tractors are in fair to good shape, the massy has a shimmering in the steering other than that it seems tight.I have heard that the 180 might like to suck fuel. Thank you for your comments.

I cant give you any actual numbers but I have always found my 180 (diesel) fairly easy on fuel. I dont know anything about the MF though.

The 265 will be very conservative on fuel, is durable and easy to operate, starts well in all temperatures and has excellent hydraulics and steering, The steering cylinder needs periodic attention to eliminate the shimmy you describe, especially if the tractor has a loader on it, other than that, it's a winner. There's no way I'd trade mine for ANY gas tractor, at least not for a working tractor. (and I own 12 Allis gas tractors)

Today's Featured Article - Search For Spares - by Anthony West (UK). Following on from the aquisition of the old Fordson F, I was very much in need of spares. As a novice though I didn't appreciate the fact that there were so many Fordson tractors made, that all the other makes seem rare by comparison.
