might try to buy an AC-5040. are they any good. this one is 2 wheel drive, can a person ever get parts ? what kind of problems did they have? has low hrs. but a bit of rust, fenders mostly and some on the hood, will need to clean up and repaint to make it look real sharp, but no dents, real straight sheet metal. need some help making a decision. also what is a FAIR PRICE for something like this , you know average to good condition . any info would be welcome. thanks oly

This tractor was made in Romania. Parts are fairly high and sometimes hard to find. The transmission has all straight cut gears which leads to excessive noise expecially if it has a canopy. The people around here either hate them or love them. As amechanic who works on them I wish they would send them all back across the puddle.

You are thinking of the Fiat- built 160 and 6040, and the current Fiat/New Holland relationship. The 5040 was built in Eastern Europe By Universal Tractor, who has built units for Long. UTB built tractors under license from Fiat, but the 5040 had little, if any Italian content.

The 5040 is a decent little tractor. They were made in Europe, I believe Romania, but can't swear to that. They are nearly identical to the same size tractor with the Long name brand on it. As a matter of fact the 5040 I mowed hay with last year had a Long seat on it. It cost half as much as an Alis- Chambers seat. The tractor isn't too bad overall, but my uncle had alot of hydrolic trouble, and currently the power steering is virtually non-existant. It hasn't been maintanenced alot, or taken care of like it should have been, so there you go. I see them every now and again going from as low as 4000, to as high as 7000 dollars depending on hours, and general condition. Parts are availabe and I don't know that they are any higher than any other brand. Easy on fuel. If it runs good it will do good utility work Greg H.

Today's Featured Article - Identifying Tractor Smells - by Curtis Von Fange. We are continuing our series on learning to talk the language of our tractor. Since we canít actually talk to our tractors, though some of the older sect of farmers might disagree, we use our five physical senses to observe and construe what our iron age friends are trying to tell us. We have already talked about some of the colors the unit might leave as clues to its well-being. Now we are going to use our noses to diagnose particular smells. ELECTRICAL SMELLS ... [Read Article]
