|Dale||I am looking at buying this 1970 model, but have now heard some scary stuff about the tractor.
would be used for small horse ranch ,disking, rototilling ect.
Good or bad.
Thank You Dale
|Hugh MacKay||Dale: As a commercial farmer running 7 tractors back inth 60s when hydros first hit the market, I looked at these on numerous ocasions. Even at that time IH were only recomending hydros for very high value precission seeding or harvesting vegetable operations. By 1975 I had talked with several owners, who confirmed they were very nice but also very expensive to maintain. One guy who had two of them told me he never started them unless it was precission work as they had to last him a lifetime. They fall down badly on drawbar pulling. Very useful for what they were designed for, but that's it.
I never did buy one. For shuttle work I went to Deere power shift and skid steer loaders. For the jobs you have listed I'd say no, except the roto tiller and even there you can find more efficiency in low reduction gear tractors.
