 1910 vs. 1920

I have found a 86' Ford 1910, great bend 240 loader, 900 hrs, for $10,000, and a 88' Ford 1920, Woods loader, 1200 hrs, for $13,000. What are the big differences between the two models? Are there known problems with either of the models? Any information would greatly be appreciated!

 1910 vs. 1920

Matt, I own a 1986 Ford 1910 with Ford 770B loaderon it. I brought it in 1992 with 170 hours on it. At an auction I paid $9000 and saw the exact same thing on a dealers ad for $13000 a year later. It's a 3 cylinder diesel, mechanical 4 wheel drive. It's a gear transmission; 1,2,3 & R on the column and 4 ranges between your feet. I'm not sure but the 1920 may be a 4 cylinder, if not, the engine is probably bored out a little. The 1920 may also have a separate power-steering pump off a fan belt. The differential lock siezed engaged and I had to open the top of the differential under the seat and "unsieze" it-nothing was broke and I cleaned out the metal filings and I have had no trouble for 5 years.

This has been a solid little tractor for me. Availability of parts is good, now through New Holland. I can see the advantage of separate power steering circuit, you lose a little steering power when you use the FEL hydraulics alot. This is a minor thing. You have to watch the temp gauge,the radiator screen clogs up mowing in timothy or canadien thistle but I think that is pretty common.

RCH, I appreciate your reply. What is the hp rating on a 1910? tractortips.com shows 23 or 24 PTO hp, but have also heard 29.5 PTO hp, and 33 gross hp. By the way your camera takes great pictures, and your 1910 looks to be in great shape.

 1910 vs. 1920

The tractor tips HP specs seem curious. I believe my 1710 23.5 PTO HP, and I always thought the 1910 has around four more horse. At least that's the way the power of the whole 1000-series tractors seems to be spaced. My impression is that the 10-models had 3-cylinder engines and the 20-models had 4-cylinders.

 1910 vs. 1920

Matt, the hp for the 1910, right out of the Service Manuel, is 32 for the engine and 29.3 PTO at 540 RPM. I'd guess the drawbar hp ~ 24-25. The 1910 seems more reasonable at $9000 with less hours than the $13000 for the 1920. The shape of the loader and ease of use is a factor that I can't evaluate. I think both prices are a starting point for further offers. Is there any other implement that can be thrown into the mix ?

 1910 vs. 1920

The 1910 and 1920 are both very sturdy, reliable tractors as a rule. Give the advantage to the 1920 in the following areas: Separate fully hydrostatic power steering, in leiu of the power-assist from a priority valve/single pump on the 1910, this is a big advantage, along with the '20's higher flow rate. Shuttle from F to R in any gear, good for many applications, not especially critical for many others. 1920 not so dependent on preheating with glowplugs as the 1910. 1920 is SUBSTANTIALY easier to perform basic service and most repairs on than the 1910, but that still isn't too bad compared to other brands. Are the advantages worth the price difference? If condition was comparable, I would give the 1920 serious consideration, and the longer you plan to keep it, the more I would lean towards it. Great Bend makes a very good loader, and the new series of Woods loaders are very good, too, much better than those models they replace.

 1910 vs. 1920

RCH, Tom G., Rick B. I appreciate all the info. I purchased the 1910 yesterday for $9,500, and got them to throw in a used masters 5' finish mower. The tractor checked out good, and had been taken care of exceptionally. I did however take the 88' 1920 for a test drive, and after a closer look could tell the tractor had a hard life. As far as features I really couldn't find anything the 1920 had the 1910 didn't other than 4 cyl. and seperate pump for power steering. I am very happy with my purchase. The place that had the 1920 wouldn't bust at all on his price, and the tractor had 2000 hours instead of 1200. Something Ive noticed, is that Ford tractors really clean-up well, no matter what model you own. Its something about that blue paint. Again thanks for all the info.
