|bill|| A single female friend is looking at a farmall 400 for her horse business, needs loader,mower etc . How good are the hydrulics on the 400 and can she use 3 point hitch accesories on the 2 point quick hitch??
|Hugh MacKay||Bill: Farmalls don't make great loader tractors. Lets face it they were engineered for drawbar pulling on the great plains of North America. They will operate 3 point equipment with a 2 point adapter, however mounted equipment never worked well until manufacturers moved the operator ahead 18" and made mounting and dismounting forward of rear wheel. It is a real pain mounting from the rear of tractor with mounted equipment, very hard on the legs. Now if your lady friend has nice legs, she doesn't need all the bruises, scrapes and cuts one encounters climbing over mounted equipment. Hell I don't even have particularly nice legs, and I never enjoyed it.
Pick her a nice Ferguson type tractor, and heavy enough to do loader work. Farmall was a great tractor for what it was designed for, hooking to an implement and staying in the seat for 5 hours at lick. Not a nice tractor for on-off the seat 5 times per hour.
