Jim - many of us here own them or have owned them. Price is greatly dependent on condition. In this area they run from about $700-$800 up to $1600 or more for nice ones. $1000 should buy you a running, ready to work tractor with good cosmetic appearance.

I have a '40 H and really enjoy it. Just the standard drawbar hitch.

yes you can, but you will need a fairly large diameter cylinder to raise it, since an H hydraulic system only develops form 650 to 1000 pounds depending on year and condition of system.

Think over the purchase of the H a bit and do some research. The 3-point will cost you some where around $600- plus the purchase price for the H.

What I'm suggesting is that you can purchase a tractor with the 3-point and a few other features for close to the price range of the H plus 3-point.
I have an excuse. CRS.

My H has The Saginaw 3pt on it. It cost me around $800.00 delivered to the door. It makes the H a real nice tractor as it is very well designed. On the liftall pump it could easy lift a few thousand pounds plus you can have down pressure. I had a 2N Ford at one time and can tell you from experience the H with a 3pt is easily twice the tractor the Ford no matter the plow rating. I used to plant trees with a 25" Danauser auger. The Ford could barely handle an 18" and the H played with the 25". With the addition of Live hydraulics and a 3pt hitch the H can be a nice tractor for the money just start off with one no more than a $1000.00. I bought my H for $450.00. I'm up to almost $5000.00 invested ( yeh I know...real crazy ). But for that money I've got 3pt hitch/dual remotes/power top link/live hydraulics/new power steering/creeper gear/all new rims and tires/bolster weights/front wheels weights/and a 169cu engine with about 45HP. Plus all the parts that go with a top to bottom rebuild.
