I can tell you my TO 20 can easily pick up my 7 ft 907 flail mower which is a pretty heavy beast. I run a 5ft brush hog with an over run adapter. The beauty is the position of the lift arms which are connected slightly in front of the rear axles. No wheelies. My 3020 and the Super C get light footed in front but not the TO.
They are tough and best of all....easy to get on and off!

They are good tractors for their day.

No bells or whistles, very basic, easy to repair. It is not for the snow flake crowd, no power steering, stiff clutch, requires thinking and planning for safe operation. One thing for certain though, it will never, ever need the computer flashed by the dealer! LOL

Just take in consideration, you are looking at a 70 year old machine. Unless it was someones baby and kept under cover and properly maintained, expect to have problems.

The wiring will likely need replacing, easy job. The radiator will probably need recoring or replacing. The gas tank may be rusted out. The hydraulics could need attention, especially if it sat outside with water in the gearcases for years. Tires are expensive.

They don't demand much on the market. If in excellent condition, $2000 is top dollar, goes down from there.

I agree with all of Steveís points. Great tractor, the TO30 only added about 5 more horsepower. I you are going to use a brush hog get an overrun pto adapter. Works like a ratchet and prevent the pto from driving the transmission when you put the clutch in and allows you to stop. The cracked blocks are more prevalent on the TO30 due to less casting between the cylinders.

If itís priced right great tractor and parts are available

usually. but they have their quirks as any old machine does.
Please share the good and the bad.
How available are the parts?

very available.
How good is the lift system?

depends on condition of hyd. parts.


How are these tractors when you hook a bush hogg up to them?

would not go over five ft. width.
What size bush hogg will they handle?

BEWARE of the infamous "cracked block". sometimes no way to tell unless head is off or oil pan dropped.

if all is good dam fine little machine.
