Does anyone here love a ford 5000 ? I have always loved them from when I was younger and now I have been trying to find one in good shape in my area and its like a needle in a haystack.

The 5000 is a great tractor. To this day I think a 7000 is the most comfortable tractor I have ever used. I'm a Massey man now, but a 7000 sure sits nice.

Your right. I've driven 2000, 3,000 4,000, 5,000, and 7,000. The 6,000 must have been scarce in my area. Lots of the others though. The leg room is what I remember the most. It was the first platform tractor I ever drove, might have been why.

We have a 5000 that my grandfather purchased new. Shredding with no cab, getting jumped for stacking the hay crooked, wearing as many clothes as possible to keep warm while feeding in the sleet...... Good times. :D
