Case 1494 - is it a good tractor

Richard Major I am a tree farmer/gardener/deer guide "wanna-be" looking for a bigger tractor than my 8N Ford to work with. A neighbor has a case ih 1494 2wd (1984) What are my concerns if I buy this tractor? Does it have a good record? Are there obvious pitfalls? Help!!!
Richard major Also, I forgot, can I get a small front blade for the 1494???
brian heffernan hello,
i ave jus brough a 1985 case 1494 hydro shift from my neighbour and i am bad about the tractor it has 5900 orginal hours and she runs like a dream,its a very simple tractor and if treated right you will have it for a long time

David Snelgar I have a 1494 but not with standard rear wheels and tyres and no one can tell me what standard is so I am just trying to contact owners to see what they have.

Mine are 18.4-30 and seem a little low.

Mike Sheehan 16.9-34 seems to be what is normally used around here. You can rotate the final drive hubs down to raise the tractor if required, never done it myself but it's supposed to be fairly easy, see link attached.
