A rather long on the tooth compact diesel made in Japan by Shibaura and rebadeged and sold in the US by Ford. AFAIK nothing wrong with the tractors except their advancing age and limited parts availabilty. Ford only sold about 15 thousand units so finding salvage parts can be a bit of a crap shoot.

If it doesn't have any issues and the price is right go for it. But plenty of competition in that size and age category so for me it would have to be cheap to warrant a look. Here is one for sale a few miles from me that doesn't look too rough and the asking price is a reasonable starting point. Probably a little high for a 2WD model but it does include a two bottom plow (not shown) and an extremely well used woods mower
