Need Help Buying a tractor!

FLacer22 NO idea really what i am doing we own a 580 acre farm with over 240 tillable acres (i do not farm this and most likely never will it is all rented) Our farm is in hilly area of Ohio and i roam farm since my mom inheritated it. She sold off all my grandpas farming stuff when i was more or less unintrested now all we have is one 45hp ford left with a loader. I Cut firewood and drag trees out into fields all the time the ford just dont cut it for pulling virgen timber trees out. I am looking to buy a 2nd tractor to pull logs and maybe do about 35 acres of hay fields we also own. The problum is that the hay fields are on very steep hills many people have done before but it takes a tractor with some power to pull up hills.
So

I have been looking at tractors and i have found one i think i want its a Case 1370 with 6500 hours was overhalued at 6000 and has had the Updates put in it for the rear end its a 1976

I am a collage kid trying to make money on side not a farmer or anyhting like that might do some side work for some local farmers as this large a tractor is somewhat uncommen in my neck of the woods. I am not too experinced at reapiring these beasts but am farily good at running them. dont have a huge ammut of money to repair and want to buy something in to 4000 to 8000 dollar range.

Would this tractor be good choice? i have looked into them and hear that powershift is very bad news also heard later models had updates in them to make them really good, is 76 a late model?

Just trying to find some good infermations on it and dont want to buy something that blows up and i cant fix but dont want to be underpowerd and stuck in a rut

Thanks for help in advanve!!!
