ford tractors are ok, i wish they put some of that reliability into their cars and trucks. i have a 70 4400 at work to cut brush with weighted tires it does a good job. we have a 04 deere 110 backhoe with all the bobcat attachments too that thing is cool.
the 4400 is 2wd so i think its a good thing more often then bad. plus i dont know how much it weighs now but the plate says 12k before the loader and brush hog plus the tire weight. it makes that powerstroke grunt pretty bad.
