on the ford 200 with loader on Ebay that is for sale. What do you think it is worth. It is supposedly in top notch condition. I am looking fora a good Ford loader tractor.I am a little leery about the type loader that is on the tractor.

Here is the url to the ebay site.

Thanks - Fence

By the picture this tractor has power steering. Write the seller and ask for the serial number and model number. If its 60s the SN and model should be on top of the trans right behind starter. We all want the perfect tractor but sometimes it a trade off of cost versus usable. Hes asking $3K and thats not the reserve. So if you get in the $4-5K range theres a bunch of bigger better tractors out there.

The tractor is not a 1972. It possibly could be a 1962. The loader looks like the Wagner loader that was used on the N series Fords sold in the 40's & early 50's. The tractor probably does not have power steering, which is very important when using a front loader. Even if it does have power steering, it has the adjustable agricultural front axle, which is not adequate for heavy work with a front loader. Beware.

Fence, there aren't enough photos to tell for sure but that does not look like a 72 to me. In addition if you're going to get a loader you need a tractor designed for one. Otherwise the front end is not heavy duty enough to withstand serious work. You'll be welding the axles every time you turn around. I know one will bolt up to any thousand series ford but depending on the tractor model it would be for light use only. Don't buy a loader tractor of any kind without power steering.

Fence, The tractor looks good if you have Dell's 20/20 vision. That's from 20 feet away or at 20 miles per hour. My opinion is to steer clear. If you look closely at the pictures they just sprayed everything. There's blue paint on the exhaust pipe and PTO. Neither has had enough use since the paint job to wear or burn off the paint. It is not a restored tractor. It's been blasted to look good to sell. There is no way of knowing if it runs good or (worst case) at all. A person can say whatever they want but that don't make it true. It's a shame they painted it the way they did. That just invites critics like me to say "what are they trying to hide"? If it were dirt cheap I'd go for it, but at the current price you can get a tractor that you can acctually look at before you buy it. Just my opinion, Eric

More like 50/50 vision.
Look at that tractor good.
That is a 1964 2000 at best.
More likely a 640.
The starter button on trans.
The 4 speed with no high and low.
The round hood.
Sure wish I could see the front grill.

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]
