||hi i need to mow a farm and am looking for a tractor. I need to mow about 4ft of grass ad am wondering what would be a better tractor to do it with. i can get ford 3000 for $3500 with a 5ft brush hog.I can also get a Allis wd45 for $2000. they are both in excelleent condition and run well. The ford 3000 series suposidly have problems with the clutch and selecto-speed, but the allis will need to be converted to a 3pt hitch so im not sure what would work the best and be the best deal? please leave any info. thank you
I would recomend the Ford tractor. It is a utilty tractor and has the 3-point hitch. The select-o-speed transmission is excellent for pto work. We have a ford 5000 with select-o-speed and it is great for mowing. Never had any trouble with it. Anyway goodluck. Tim
