  • need info and adviceon a fordson major
  • I accidently stumbled onto a Fordson Major with a Shawnee loader and back hoe.The tractor is complete as far as I can tell,it has been setting for 5 to 10 years It is diesel but I suspect the engine is seized because the intake is not covered and has been setting like that for who knows how long. The man that owns it just wants to get rid of it, his father passed away 2 years ago and was somewhat of a junk collector. all the tires are holding air but are badly weathered. It is buried under a bunch of junk and even has a few small trees growing up around it.I'm thinking of maybe making an offer on it but I have no idea what it might be worth and if I can reasonably make it into a usable piece of equipment. I know nothing about these tractors, I'm open to all the info you guys can throw at me. Thanks and God Bless, Beth and Allen.

  • I would offer to haul it away at no charge.
    If the motor is tight, it will require lots of work to get going again.
