I use a tractor to move some dirt around, brush hog, lite grading, no farming, tilling. I'm a Ford fan. Don't want to spend a lot, and yes, I know it's old. So am I.

Will be nearby on Wed morning, thinking of picking it up.

We don't think much of a trip bucket. I have one on a fordson 2000 with a freeman loader. It's quite a bit better than a manure fork and it dumps fast. If you're cleaning something out, making round trips, a quick dump while you're shifting into reverse isn't a bad feature.

I have five of these, two with loaders. I like these tractors. Little fast in low and reverse gears.

That's top price, then some.

The trip loader, in my opinion, is no fun.

Kind of steep for a 641 even with PS and combo, but it does look nice and has good tires.

Radius arms are bent a bit but not too bad.

Maybe $3,000?

We started out on a 8n, drop loader with trip bucket and no power steering... We cleared lots of land and did lots of work. Back when we had lots of time an no money. Later we had a lot less time and a little money, we moved up to a better tractor.

Not that that tractor would not work, Its not an easy tractor to work with. For occasional use, it would be ok, but for lots of use, I would spend about double that and get a really modern tractor with a modern loader..

However condition is everything and loader tractors can be plumb wore out or tore up so inspect carefully for one in good shape for the same price as one not maintained.

If your using it a lot,, I would move up.

With the above average tires, Sherman, below average loader, and extremely straight I would call it a reasonably good deal at $3,000, PROVIDED it has good compression. I have a compression tester kit and I always take it and my vacuum gauge when going to look at an old tractor. If it makes good compression and I wanted it I would see if I could make a deal, if not give the guy your number and ask him to call if he changes his mind.

Not a deal here. Old loader with trip manure bucket, no down pressure, runs off tractor hydraulics, painfully slow. For that kind of money Keep looking.

BTW, I've driven a fair amount to look at some 3000 with loader, and all of them in my price range are useless parts machines. While I would LIKE a 3000 or 4000, what I'm seeing under $4k is going to need $1600 in work.

I am working on an 801 with a loader. The heavy type with front pump. Power steering. I like the later models, but gonna see if I can sell and if not can I get some use from it.
