Ford 3000 lift strength

Troy Towery Would a 1965 Ford 3000 tractor (under 40 HP) have enough lift strength to pick up a round hay bale weighing approx. 900-1000 lbs with a 3 point spear attachment ?
jerry the one i have will but it is slow
hay if it don't lift a small roll of hay that size, then something is wrong. check fluid level.
CentralVirginia I have a 1963 2000 (35 HP) and I routinely lift
800 lb bails using a spear with no problem. Manual says it's rated for 2630 lbs at the ball joints.

martinb The big plus is it makes wheelies really easy ;)
Jim I lift 1000-1500lb round bales with mine all day. I use Railroad C-Clamps on the front to add some counter weight, thhese are a lot cheaper than Fords weight system. About 300-350lbs. in the front keeps the front on the ground.

Jim
