 In search of Ford 4000 details

First, thanks to everyone out there who seems so willing to share their knowledge! I have learned alot but didn't find the info I am looking for on the board.I live in Minnesota on a small 11 acre hobby farm. I use a John Deere LT155 lawn mower for a yard that is about 1 1/2 acres. The remaining land is planted in fruit orchard trees and DNR native prairie grass restoration. I am looking at getting a compact tractor to remove snow. My driveway is about 900 feet long 8 feet wide gravel and is raised above the land surrounding it to provide good drainage. Using a loader and blade alone doesn't get the snow "away" from the road enough. I would like to get a good quality snow blower (new or used) thatwill "do the job". We average about 75 inches of snow each year. Once a year I need to bush hog the prairie grass (about 6-7 acres). I have been looking at an old Ford 4000 1960 ish model with a good loader on a lot. My question is, will this machine "do the job" for quality snow removal and bush hogging? I can't find the HP for this model. I figure 3 pt mounted blower is my only option.If anyone has had experience or knowlege with this tractor, your help would be appreciated. Also, alternative suggestion are welcomed! ThanksBruce

Bruce, the Used Tractor Price Guide lists the 1963 Ford 4000 as having 41 PTO hp in diesel, weighing 3182 lbs; the gas version as 46 hp and 2987 lbs. In 1965, weight jumps to 4210 and 4450 for the gas and diesel versions, respectively; that year is also listed as the first for 3-cylinder engines. In 1969, weight and HP take another jump.

Sorry I have no experience with these tractors; just what the book says! Hope it helps.

Bill

Bruce, that machine is part of a very popular series of machines (3xxx and 4xxx)that Ford produced for decades, we have 3 members of that 'family' on our working farm, a 3600 with a zillion hours on it, a Ford backhoe (I think an early 555) which used a 3xxx as the basis, and a Ford forklift which is just a 3600 (gas) with a reverse facing operators station and a forklift mast where the 3 pth would be. These are (except the gas) very straight forward 3 or 4 cyl. diesels (the 3xxx were 3 jugs, the 4xxx were 4 cyl. engines) they are easy to fix or maintain, parts a VERY easy to get, and almost every farm mechanic (and farmer) is familiar with them. They are usually a good bargain because they are too small for most field work, but too large to be a replacement for a 'modern' compact. Best of luck.
