Subject: RE: Deere 2150 vs Ford 3910

Southern Pa.
If you need hyd flow, the 2150 will eat the 3910 for lunch. IF the 2150 doesn't have internal leaks. The 50 series utility tractors are better than the 40 series utility tractors in that regard, but still had some issues. Are you familiar with either one??

If I was looking at a 2150, if it looked good, ran good, etc., the next thing I would do is get it the hydraulics to operating temperature. 150°F. Then, at a dead idle, I would turn the steering wheel rapidly back and forth, lock to lock, all the while lowering and raising the 3 point hitch. If the hydraulics start to chatter while performing this generic test, I'd walk away.

Personally, I won't buy any Deere tractor of that vintage without my temp gun, and pressure gauge set. Everybody worries about engines, which is fine to do so, but engine problems are much easier to spot with the naked eye, and often easier to repair than major hydraulic problems. Especially PS transmissions.

Which you don't have in this case.

Check the Hi/lo for issues too, if it has one.
