Fergie te-d 20- Can be quite annoying sometimes quite a temperamental little tractor
International 574-Decent tractor keep a wooden block in the cab issues with the handbrake
MF 35- Decent but highly overated
Leyland 245 and up- Makes a david brown look professional
Nuffield 10/60- Good tractor good traction because of a good weight ratio
David Brown 1390/94- I can't believe you considered this tractor we use to have one it was highly avoided don't go near one
John Deere 1640- Good tractor cab comfort is the best of the lot
Zetor somrthing- Realible old tractors but there rough on the road

Other- Any Kind of ford

Naill, your opinion will be of use to me defiantly, what is your favourite Ford and what do you think of MF 135s, there is a local one which I like the look of, I can upload pics if you guys want. (they aren't very good though!). The tractor is an ex-scraper so you can imagine what the brakes and steering would be like, and the front nosecone, grille, ect. would be like. It has no lights but looks fairly straight, although I haven't had a visit to see it and see what it's really like and check out whats what.

A ford 4000 is a great little tractor handy highly manoeuvrable I'd look out for one of those. About the 135 well as you say it's gonna be knocked up every were the tyres will be quite bad from spinning and up against walls. Mechanically there will be quite a few hours on the engine if it's the orginal the clutch will most likely be ****** I'd stay away from it they normally don't get treated well. I'd look further about but really look for a good straight tractor scraper tractors are always bodged up badly.

It's done about 4000 hours so I'm told, but I agree about the clutch. The back tyres are odd grass ones, but the fronts are tidy. The cab frame if rotten a bit in the corners but don't tell anyone cause I'll get it welded!

Tell me what you think.

If you think you can get it restored in that amount of money go for it it looks pretty straight tin work is abit rotted clutch can be replaced easily a local dealer or mechanic there all the same other than that it look decent. I'd rip the safety frame of anyway.

Nah, I'd prefer to have a slightly rotten cab than none. That figure is only a quick, rough estimate, it will probably be more!

The cab is solid I grabbed hold and shock it back and forth, didn't creak of groan at all. It's surface rust Wink Also the cow excrement appeared to have protected the rims as when I kicked it off there was little pitting if any.

About the excrement, how is that possible, unless somehow it hasn't reacted with the metal, which doesn't make sence, but I'm not complaining! Wink

It honestly isn't coroded. I don't know how either, needs a new PUH though that was plastered and didn't seem to have fared quite as well as the rims. I unlocked it and it stayed up not a good sign.

Well, a Super Dexta isn't a bad choice actually! I'm sorry for not adding it but I can't add every tractor. Wink

Well, I think I would have a Major over a Dexta, more horse and I think they are cheaper too.
