Morning. In my search for another tractor on my in-laws farm, I have run across a Ford 8730 powershift. It is probably 30 to 50 hp bigger than what we would ever need, but it is relatively close and in the price range. It's not a beauty queen, but the cab is clean and in reasonable shape. Approximately 6000 hours. I also like the woods 355 loader on it, more than enough lift capacity for what I need. Anyone have any experience with these tractors for the good, bad or otherwise?

Looking for advice where to go next. Thanks in advance. Jon
