This is my first tractor and I think I bought a mistake. I like the tractor, it runs perfect and the selecto shift transmission works fine. However, I have been told by many that it is impossible to find parts and is not a good tractor. How come it has been running since the sixties than?? Can someone enlighted me on this tractor. Also, can someone tell me what front end loader will fit on this tractor and/or where I can find one. Thanks, Merlin. DAV.

I saw a 6000 pull at a county fair 30 years ago. It was balanced just right, tires about 8 inch off the ground. The operator worked the throttle and transmission just so, brake pedals just so. Idle down gain traction power up, shift down etc. Got another 10 feet and 2-3 minutes worth of show. That was the first Ford I had ever seen pull, and the most skill ever.

If your machine works well, perform the maintenance and keep it.

They were probably a pretty good tractor, according to what you used them for. DON'T FORGET! If you tow it, there is a thing you've got to disengage and I don't remember exactly what it is. Ellis Coan, a former equipment dealer here in Columbus, Mississippi, has a salvage one for sale His tel number is 662-328-1343. There were not all that many people crazy about a tractor that large having the SOS.

When they first made the 6000, they rushed it out without really testing it. It was full of mistakes and errors, there was a huge recall for the 6000. If its not a recall tractor, you should be fine. Just because of this incodent, people have given the 6000 a bad rep.
