Re: ford 6600
The 5000 is what I believe to be a 'pre-force' version.
I remember the early 6600 available with a safety cab in the
UK sometime around 1975. Many were smokey and gutless with
engines that varied in output even more than the 5000. The
large vegetable farm I worked on at the time bought two
5000's and three 6600's used at the same time. They all had
less than 1000 hours on them when bought. Everyone preferred
the 5000 and a new Q cab 4600 they also bought. Within six
months they had also bought a new Q cab 7700 to replace a
Case 970 Agri King which spent more time being repaired than
working.
When last I visited the farm, some five years ago, one of
the 5000's was still working but the other tractors had long
been replaced. The replacement of mixed vegetables and dairy
cows by all wheat has meant they now have a fraction of the
labour force and mainly run Fendt of between 150 and 250hp.
They did try a couple of those big powershift Fords that
came after the TW but their unreliability started them with
Fendt.
