Fiat info needed

I just got home from work, and again.. I've spooted another tractor on the side of the road that needed 'smelling'.

This one was full grown.. Fiat.. dual rears, 4 remotes, cat 2 hitch, full enclosed cab, ac, 2wd, PS. Painted orange sheet metal, white chassie. I couldn't find a serial number or model number on the machine anywhere. I could make out one decal in the operators cabin.. was written in another language.. so I'll gues imported model?

I had a little 5' box blade attatched to the back of it.. looked real funny, as this tractor is the size of ..oh.. roughly a ford 8000 or so.. maybee a 7000 series... or at least inbetween.

Can anyone even vebture to guess at what model this might be .. any ideas are appreciated. Sign said ran good, cold ac. I didn't see any leaking diesel or oil / hyd fluid under the machine. Some of the operators cabin is in disaray.. like the foam insulation on the roof is a bit rough.. it once had a radio and has been removed.. seat needs re-upholstered.

It appears to be missing quite a few running lights.. though all the sheet metal is straight.. no direct collisions with trees I guess. Had a massive weight plate holder at the front.. must have held 10 large suitcase weights.

Ironically when i told my wife about it.. she said.."now thats a tractor, I might even learn to drive .. cab and ac...
so there I am... I can't get here near my NH 1920, ford 8n or NAA, JD B, or my IH cub.. yet the last two HUGE tractors I looked at ( a ford 8000 earlier this year ) and this fiat she gets interested in...Go figure... I don't even have a trailer big enough to haul this beast.. I'm guessing it is about 4 - 4.5 tons..... and not only that...I've only got 13.2 ac anyway... I can see the neighbors now.. they'll think I've flipped If I came pulling up in that thing with say. a 10, 12, or 15' mower on it. I guess it ~would~ cut my mowing time down from 5 hours to uh.. 2 hours?.. I'm not sure whether this is an absurd thought.. or one of those good deals... etc.. any of y'all get the idea that I got too much sun this summer?
thanks guys.

I saw one like this on Rt. 441(?) in FL. Fiat tractors of this design were sold under the Hesston brand name. If you look in a tractor blue book you may figure out the model

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]

Latest Ad: 1953 Ford Jubilee SN#70068. I can provide pictures upon request and please only serious inquiries for the tractor. This tractor has been well kept under a shed. [More Ads]
