  • Just bought..........
  • Just bought a 19?? Ford 600 with a bad transmission with a Sherman backhoe and front end loader and a over/under Sherman transmission for $1200.00, Except for the blown tranny the tractor,backhoe and sheet metal are in better than average shape,Rear tires are like new-no dry rot! Absolutely "NO" farmerized repairs anywhere on this machine, Very little wear on pins/bushings on the hoe or FEL
    May be forced to sell it "as is" because of my home situation (Fire) Hope not !

    What do you think? Think I did good?

    Pics,serial numbers and year to come !

    later' "Still homeless dave"

  • Sounds like a fantastic deal to me. There was a time I was hoping to find a Ford with Sherman backhoe and a loader. We had the same on our '51 8N with a Sherman combo trans when I was a teen (60 years ago). I still have the tractor and the loader. The loader is on my '52 8N with Sherman combo.

  • 601 workmaster is one of my favorites. Loader backhoe and sherman, I would say you done good. Pulling those off to get to the tranny will make things a bit more challanging, but would be a good time to sell the extras if you did not want to keep all that. Or! You can dig the footings for the new house!
    If i were the suspicious type, I would think that you might be building that giant pie thrower. I better watch out!
    Hope you got things straight with the insurance folks... Chuck them one of those giant pies!

  • Hopefully you luck out like I did on my 640. The trans needed dental work and when the gear teeth break on the top cluster the broken pieces fly and drop down causing a trickle down effect and usually bust out gears on the bottom cluster, luckily it missed the input shaft into the trans on the Sherman. Some of the gears are the same as the 8n so with parts tractor around are easily replaced just a pain to double split.
    Good luck with it
