Nice little tractors. We had one with a 3T fransguard on for thinning on one estate and it stood up to it well. Seem to remember it being quite stable too.

 

There's a power assisted steering kit available for them too, which made ours nicer when sneaking out of the wood.

 

Haven't seen that many about so maybe quite sought after?

International 454 - it's not a bad little thing and did surprisingly well with the trailer. Recently replaced it with a 4wd kubota of similar size to a 3000, but it doesn't have the same sort of hydraulic power as the nasher.

the 3000's are very sort after in the tractor restoration world! Good work horse, proper tractor and it was biuilt on the theory, no smoke no poke unlike this modern emission compliant heaps of technology.

 

You've been lucky to be given it, a tidy and a spring clean with a bit of paint, she's probably worth 5k........ you enjoy working her!

Very nice tcd. Any tractor that turns its own wheels is worth hanging on to.

I look forward to seeing it in action.
