I've found a Ford Commander 6000 diesel. Went to look at and started it up, seemed to run ok. Has 10 forward speeds and 1 reverse as best I can tell. Any comments on this tractor? Was a six cylinder, with 4 intake runners and 5 exhaust runners. Know the cid, and does it have cylinder sleeves? In parts book, don't show much for the 6000, as compared to the other series.
Thanks in advance.

I agree, run as fast as you can from these 6000's. They were re-called when they were new and have been causing problems ever since. Morre trouble then you can shake a stick at.

If you want a novalty, have fun. If you want a tractor to use; run as far and as fast as you can. Most new parts are out of production and aftermarket are almost nonexistant.

Todd, 242 cubic inch inline 6 diesel engine. This block does not have sleeves. I have Ford parts book and service manual. Parts are not as easy to come by as other tracors. Philip.

Thanks very much Kyhayman and Philip. I do appreciate the information. While I own all Ford cars and trucks, I've always just liked IH / Farmall tractors and own a 504 diesel. But I do admire the way the Ford 9000 / 9600 diesels do at the tractors pulls, they are awesome and look good too! When I saw the 6000 Commander advertisement for only $2750 I had to go and look. Located in Butler, PA. Ran good and had a heavy duty looking three point hitch, but was also narrow front (not bad) and very long and slender, looked different than what I expected. You guys just answered what I've been trying to find out for weeks and sort of surmised. Thanks again, Todd

Todd,
If you're not going to get that 6000, kindly let me know via e-mail where in Butler it is, or a phone number if possible. My bad luck, I haven't bought a tractor this year (If you don't count the 9N in Feb., and I don't), thanks.

Mike

Mike, Sent info via e-mail - if you don't see it let me know. Ford must have sold a ton of those 8N and 9N's. I wish they had live pto.

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
