Nortrac 50 HP Tractor with Loader and Backhoe

"This is a great tractor for a beginner. I do have a problem reading the english translation in the manuals.
The shifting is hard too, I have to stretch my legs to shift the gears. The forward and reverse gear shift requires a lot of force to get it in gear.
We use it for all kinds of jobs and hope to buy a bush hog for it in the future.

NorTrac 50XT TLB

"The unit has been used for a few months now, both around the farmstead and in the field to remove rocks and stumps and to trench for underground electrical service wire, and also light duty field work.
It came with a number of extras including weights and a complete tool kit for servicing and adjustments.
Also, the backhoe is entirely self contained with it's own PTO powered hydraulic pump, and the PTO is mechanicaly linked directly to the engine rather than hydraulicly driven so there is no loss of power being delivered to attachments like rotary mowers or tillers.
The shuttle shift is especially handy for loader work.
The styling and look is very nice and the dash and control layout good. The only minor annoyance is the offset fuel filler neck whick prevents using an automatic fuel nozzle on full open, however the engine is very easy on fuel so filling is not necessary all that often.
