How much would this weigh?
« on: July 07, 2008, 02:55:14 PM »



The basic tractor is listed at under 4000 lbs on Tractordata. Same as a JD 2010, but it has the loader and hoe. I think a 6K lbs trailer would be sufficient. Am I close? How much can that hoe weigh?

JL:

Nice tractor.

I would say 6 K is reasonable.  :omfg:omfg

I'd think even more, maybe 7K.
The hoe on my small machine is VERY heavy.
Does the 4K include loaded tyres?

Nice looking machine though.
I'd hate to have to pay to fix it though.

Does the hoe come off and leave a 3pt hitch?

Cheers

The weight is wrong on Tractordata. I thought 4K was a little light.

No backhoe - 5500 lbs. Tires aren't loaded apparently (one is flat). I am betting on 7.5K with the hoe, at least. Might leave the backhoe attachment and pick it up on another trip. I rented a 10K tandem trailer. Hope Brutus doesn't fold up like wet newspaper. An 16K vehicle combination towed by a Series has got to be some kind of stupidity record.

The photo is not of the actual tractor, you guys would laugh too hard. The one I am after is a beaten old piece of junk with a broken loader, a flat tire, worn backhoe attachment... Needs everything. Nothing I can't fix... Cheap.

Pete, I dunno if it has a PTO and a 3pt. Both were options on the JD300, as was shuttle shift and a front PTO. I went looking for a farm tractor and this pile of junk is following me home! My ducks need a pond. That is my justification and I am sticking to it. Although if it had a 3 pt hitch and a PTO it would be one useful tractor.

Nice!

Bruce, I was meaning to write you but this might be faster...

How is that old Ford pickup for plowing snow? Everyone has told me that the length of driveway (1 km) is too long to rely on a plow, but I think it would be a LOT faster than a tractor. I am just thinking that a cheapo american pickup with chains might be a heck of a lot warmer, more comfortable, faster, and plenty for most of the snow we get (provided it's not a record year like last year).

Driving a tractor in reverse for three miles does not sound like fun...

No a problem at all...

With chains on all four...the F250 even with a tired 360 would have no problem keeping a 1km drive clear...

I wouldn't want to keep a road open with a tractor...
