Providing it runs, tires are in good shape, and no signs of problems (using oil, strange engine sounds, hyd & PTO working) they are good tractors. Sort of depends on what you need/want it for? They all have a 3pt hitch, which is standard to most tractors, so finding a mower, plow, grader blade will be easy. Only bad thing about them is no live hyd or PTO. I'm currently doing a conversion to add live hyd's to my 8N, something I've been fooling around with and finally got the bugs worked out of it.

I own three of the Ford N's, '39 9N, '44 2N (soon to be sold) and a '47 8N, and one thing that is nice is that the common parts (carb rebuild, dist. cap, etc.) are readily available at places like TSC or Rural King, and if not they can be found via eBay or the internet easily.

Do the Jubilee's have live hyd and live PTO? I thought they did that upgrade on the Jubilee, but just wondering.

Todd - I think it was optional.

Thanks BD,
Mike the 9N is a good tractor, based on the folks I know who have them.
If it's got the standard transmition, it is a 3 speed. It's top speed is much slower than the 8N 4 speed.

The 3 point hitch can lift about 1000 lbs. They can handle 6 foot brush mowers, but most of the owners prefer to use the 5 foot ones

Great for pulling wagons of Square bales back to the barn too as well as raking.

It is typically called a two row tractor. It will handle a two bottom plow, a 6 foot disk and perhaps a 12 foot grain drill and a two row cultivator.. It might handle a 1 row corn picker on level ground.
It would not be my first choice for row crop farming but will work on a smaller scale.

$1100 sounds like a decent price for the 9N, Ranchruler, but it depends on how it runs and pulls, if the rubber is in good shape, what condition the tranny is in, and whether it comes with any implements. My buddy, Brian has an N...it is a 9N engine with a 2N rear end (odd) and has the hi-low tranny, so it has 8 speeds. It is pretty quick on the road and can pull a stump!

P.S. - not as easy to work on as the Cub, though!

Well I've spent more, and less, on one but it really depends on the shape it's in. I see one msg you posted about pulling a picker & a wagon? Not too sure if you'll be happy with the operation. If the picker has it's own power source, you might be OK? But if unless the tractor has an aux trans on it, not sure if the ground speed will be Ok to try and run a picker off the PTO.
