 Need advice before Buying Ford NH 1720 tractor

I have the chance to purchase a Ford 1720 tractor with a front end loader and heated hardshelled cab. It has 480 hrs and was used primarily to clear sidewalks by a small town. The dealer said the tractor looks very clean and would be a good buy for $15,000. I have no experience with tractors of any size but I have been pricing them and this appears to be a decent deal for the size machine. It is very difficult to locate used compact tractors in my area. How is the reputation for the Fords in particular the 1720 model? Is it a dependable tractor for starting and snow removal? The dealer also had a JD 770 for $11,800 which I was considering but the Ford looked so much bigger and had alot more options for an additional $3,200. Please give some comments on the quality of the Ford and is there any comparison of the JD and Ford or are they just two different machines not comparable?

 Need advice before Buying Ford NH 1720 tractor

I wanted to add to my original post that the Ford 1720 is a 1994. Who built the fords in 1994 was it the same company as 1999 or different. Was 1994 a good or bad year for Ford tractors. Some people around here say they have no complaints with their ford compacts. Is there a difference between the Ford 1720 and the NH 1720 or is it the same machine?

Lou,
For what I can tell, the differences between the 20 series, 30 series, and boomers in mainly the "skin", the addition of a few (very nice) creature comfort features such as the swivel seat, electric hydrostat lock, etc, and the availability of hydrostat transmission with higher hp engines. I believe the 20's were manufactured by Shimbaru in Japan and imported pretty much assembled. It appears the 30's and boomer's are also manufactured by Shimbaru, but without the hood, fenders, etc., which are added in a final assembly plant in the US (Georgia?).
My only comment about the 1720 is that it won't have a hydrostat, but probably has the 12x12 shuttle. If you are going to use it for mowing or snowremoval with a snowblower, I would strongly recommend a true hydrostat. The hydro will save time mowing and snowblowing is easier when you can instantly vary the ground speed to maintain the proper snow feed rate. For typical loader work, I understand the shuttle works great.

I don't know the Ford line, but if the model designation means it's a 17 or a 20 HP engine, that seems overpriced, even with the cab.

If you wanted to give your location and intended use, you'll get more specific advice.

Java, that post is 10 years old.

The 1720 is about the size of my NH TC33D----17 nor 20 denote anything. FWIW, mine listed at $16,500 without any tools or other things. I hear the same machine now is $28,000.
