This may be a stupid question, but I figured if anyone else had ever thought about it, it'd probably be on here. I accidentally purchased an old tractor last week (1949 Ford 8N, with the flathead and front distributor). I'm pretty inexperienced with tractors, save having run a bushhog for a few hours here and there and having driven a few in parades. Background- A business friend of mine had it. He moved out of his house on some acreage and left it behind because it didn't run and the new owner didn't care. His "new" home (on some acreage) was a family member's that already has a 1951 8N, so he wasn't pressed to go get the old one. He mentioned it to me a few times over the past year, and finally mentioned a price low enough I decided I was interested in it ($600). It hasn't run in about a year, and hasn't been used regularly in abt 2 years. He says it had carb. problems, he replaced the carb and couldn't get it to run, so he got mad at it and quit lol. So, we went and got it last week and it's now mine. I have been doing a lot of research on them, and am obviously pretty excited. Here's my actual question: I know that there are conversion 3-pt hitches that allow the use of full-size skid steer attachments. I have a mini-skid steer (Toro Dingo) and wonder if anyone has ever considered making a 3-pt-to-mini-skid adapter. The tractor and my Dingo both have about the same HP, and are similar in their weight-lifting ability. I already own mini-skid pallet forks, buckets, a platform,boom pole, etc and know I could make use of them. But what about things like my trencher, auger, boring unit, tiller, cultivator, etc? I know there are PTO shaft-to-pumps produced. Could one be found with adequate pressure that I could have some flat faced couplers made for? Sorry for the long post. I know people will say that I could just buy the attachments made for a tractor, but I already have invested a LOT of $$ for a 24 yr old in my mini-skid steer setup. I will be buying some land/a shop in the next year, and feel that the tractor will benefit me there and in its ability to do things I can't currently do like bushhog and do more rough gradework than my Dingo (a real box blade and a real bushhog will be purchased for that stuff, of course). Thanks for the guidance and advice in advance.
