How new should I go?
I have a 1952 8N which I like but it needs a lot of work (clutch, brakes,axle seals,oil pressure issues). I would like to upgrade at least somewhat. I would like live hydraulics at the least. Live pto would be nice but not a deal breaker. More horsepower would be welcome. As far as appearance I certainly don't need show quality but I don't want a total junker either. I'm going to look at a 3000 tomorrow which I know is a big leap. It looks quite nice paint-wise. I've heard good things about these and know it would fit my needs. One thing that concerns me is how much different it would be in terms of attachments. I have a couple of 19-29 rear loaders that I hope to restore someday. I also have a carry-all box and would dearly love to someday have a working cordwood saw. Would the rear loaders, box and saw fit on a 3000? I know I should fix the 8N but I have limited skill and facilities and am at a point where I want to spend my time driving a tractor not working on it. Would a decent Jubilee or 600 or 800 be better? Thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
