Re: Ford 7000
:-P j gregan > thats true but the 5000 is the best tractor ever built so the 7000 must be second best. By the way whats difference between DB 1212, 1410, 1412 Aren´t they the same as 885? ;-) just a bit higher, longer hood? ;-) ;-) ;-)

ps DB is very nice tractors

Yes, but does 5000 have power-shift:-P

DB 1212 Has hydrashift gearbox (power-shift) (4cyl)
DB 1412 is the 1212 with a turbo
DB 1210 is the 1212 with out the powershift)
DB 1410 Is the 1210 with turbo
DB 885 is 3 cyl (very small like ford 2000)

Re: Ford 7000
well Ford used to have select-o-speed or what was the name. A great gearbox, almost as great as DB´s but it was pretty complicated to adjust and calibrate it so it was no succes.

Re: Ford 7000

Re: Ford 7000
The selecto speed was a total dezaster just like fords engines ford were a shamed by the trouble the selecto speed transmision gave they were taking them back in and giveing 8 speed manual boxes as a trade totaly free.

The David Brown 1410 and 1412 are the best tractors ive ever operated the 1410 is much more than a 1210 with a turbo the same with the 1412 they have much larger reduction units

with excelent Disc brakes a 91 horse power turbo charged engine hydrastatic steering as standard the tractor weighs 3 tonnes with no weights they will pull almost any thing any were as the 5000/7000 will sit there and spin.

David Brown won awards for there legendary Hydra shift gearbox which is a super gear box with 12 F 4 R at four clutchless gear changes.

The hydra shift was fitted to the 1212 and 1412 and some later DBs the 1200 1210 1212 have drum brakes aposed to the hydralic disc brakes used on the 1410 and 1412.

believe me when i say this a 1410 would make notting of a 7000 the 1410 and 1412 are twice the tractor than a 7000.

id say a 1210 would be the better tractor in the field against the 5000 as well.

Also do you now the nick name for fords selecto speed gearbox.it is the selecto jurk gear box:-D:-D:-D

Re: Ford 7000

Re: Ford 7000
J gregan. Itis what u say and believe in. I have another believe. Select o speed might be a not so good gearbox. The quality is good but not to adjust and make it work.
And I really am sorry to crush your dreams, Ford 5000 IS the best tractor ever built! And ford 6X series (1000-series) was a big---> hugesuccess for them. DB is very good tractors but why didn´t they sell more in the 70´s was´it Tennecos fault?

By the way the Ford would pull the same as the DB´s weight are almost the same and the length is almost the same and the power to..... ;-)

But I could easaly have them all.......just for fun :-)

ford 5000 not the best
Stark just look at this yes yes its a massey been pulled every way buy the way them black marks are from the massey.

i also have a picture of my 1210 pulling a 6600 also.

stark the selecto speed was a dezaster and a complete failer
the 5000 is not the best tractor built but thats not saying a DB is either the 5000 have bad traction bad steering and of course the engines are pure dirt.

Where as the DB engine when it wears out it can be reconed time after time after time we have 3 DB 1200s and one has had the engine reconditioned at least 3 times.there is curently

60.000 hours on the taco but thats her third one the other to stoped at 30.000 hours and shes still working day in day out.

Fords have lots of problems they could of fixed but DBs aint perfect either but they aint as bad as fords.:-D
