UPDATE: This tractor has been sold.
I have a 1977 Ford 4600 diesel tractor for sale. Asking $9300. It comes with a Great Bend loader and a number of implements.
I’ve owned this tractor since May of 2000, and I bought it with a new Great Bend 330 front end loader. Since I’ve owned it, it has been kept under cover.
It’s a light duty tractor for me and currently has 1123 on the clock.
It comes with a number of implements including a seven foot box blade, a six foot Howse rotary cutter and a six inch auger (not pictured).
It’s a good, solid tractor with 52 hp to the PTO. I’m only getting rid of it because when my neighbor moved I was able to buy his B-series Kubota which is a better size for me, although I’ll miss the large deck on the bushhog when it comes time to cut the pasture.
I haven’t had to service this tractor often, but I’ve had the folks at Gum Springs look at it when needed. It does have two minor problems.
The first is that the alternator light glows dimly. We’ve replaced the cables and the voltage regular but it didn’t fix it. I don’t have any issues with it starting in the summer, and in the winter I just keep it on a trickle charger.
The second is that the power steering pump has a slow leak. The part is $1250 which buys a lot of fluid, so I just occasionally top it up.
Otherwise, it is in great shape for a tractor of this vintage.
