It has no direct power take-off. You need a ramp hitch on equipment like a rotary mower where the mower pushes you forward. The active cardan shaft is the same on all tractors.
It has active power but no active PTO. It has four forward gears.
A disadvantage of the Ford N was that it lacked an active PTO and active hydraulics. They stop when you press the clutch. The mower stops mowing and falls to the ground when lifted.
A power take-off is a power take-off that can operate independently of all other tractor functions as long as the engine is running. Engine speed affects the PTO and there is usually a separate clutch for engaging and disengaging the PTO. When the transmission stops rotating, the PTO stops rotating.
It has no direct power take-off. You need a ramp hitch on equipment like a rotary mower, where the mower pushes you forward. The active cardan shaft is the same for all tractors.
It does not have a PTO with PTO and this is a big drawback. Great machines, easy to repair, parts available, unlimited, cheap and easy to find.
An active PTO works with a two-stage clutch. This allows the driver to slow down or shift gears with the PTO engaged. Independent. An independent PTO means that the PTO is controlled by a separate clutch.
To give you an idea of how the year of manufacture affects value, a 9391947 9n / 2n in comparable condition would have a minimum value of around 500 and an older 8N of around 1,000. Very small tractors of that era have such Ford N-Approach values for two reasons: 3-point traction and parts availability.
The Ford 8N offers rugged reliability at an affordable price. There are a lot of small yard jobs that the Ford 8N is perfect for. The three-point hitch makes it a versatile tool. I often use one to get out of the driveway, brush and pull a cart to and from the woodpile.
It has a splined output shaft that attaches to the power tool’s drive shafts. An active PTO transmits power directly from the engine to the implement, regardless of whether the tractor is moving or stationary. Hydraulic systems go back even further.
8N has a belt force of 23.22 with a maximum of 27.32. The tractor has 92 foot-pounds of torque that is achieved at 1,500 rpm.
8N has a Sherman combination that offers a total of 12 forward and three reverse gears. This downshift works in all forward and reverse gears, but is designed to slow down the first gear in reverse so that the tractor can operate a tiller over the PTO.
They are really the same. The only big differences are a few horsepower, 8n has a 4-speed gearbox and 9n has a 3-speed gearbox. 8n is newer than 9n and has more power. The new 8n has secondary advantages, the old 8n and 9n have earlier advantages.
Here’s what we know about the Ford 8N tractor. It has a 4-cylinder Ford petrol engine and is available as two-wheel drive, weighing up to 4,043 lbs. See below for Ford 8N specs. The Ford 8N tractor has a category 1 three-point hitch and a mandatory 27.32 hp PTO.
You should see five numbers and numbers. The first digit indicates the year of construction of the tractor. Ford tractors have a special system for indicating the year of manufacture. The number 5 refers to the year 1965, the number 6 refers to the year 1966 and so on.
