1977 Ford 4100- Advice please
« on: March 31, 2019, 07:59:43 pm »
Hi,

I am currently looking at the Ford 4100 tractor, having never had a tractor before. I am looking for something which can look after approx 20 acres of flat pasture grazed my horses and 2 sheep.

I want to be able to harrow, roll and top the land when needed mainly. Also moving muck trailer ect.

Any advice on what I should look at, or anything which can be a known problem with them?

Thanks

The early ones were noted for having porous blocks.  Most of these have been replaced by ones which have a diamond pattern on the block sides.  You will see what is meant when viewing.  Quite a nice little tractor otherwise.
