    In hindsight, our best would probably be an old Zetor 8011.
    Unloved, abused and neglected, yet she always came back for more.

    After the horrendous wet summer of '85 when my dad got big silage bales made instead of wee hay ones for the first time, followed by hell all winter getting stuck trying to feed said bales....

    A FOUR WHEEL DRIVE LOADER TRACTOR

    It was a Zetor 7745.

    For ease of use, size, handiness, looks, pulling power and bombproof reliability IH 1455XL

    This is virtually impossible so I would say John Deere 7810 as best overall tractor

    Ford TW15 super Q2 1988 model as my favourite old classic

    And MF7624 as favourite current tractor

    got to be the mf 135 - bomb proof, still went when well worn, good power to weight ratio, fix with hammer and big ugly screwdriver.
    AND many of a certain age learnt to drive on them as they were pretty simple to control.

    I don't know about best ever made, of all the different makes and models ever produced, how smaller fraction have any of us every had much experience of?

    The best all rounder I've driven is a JD 6600. There have been many "good old" tractors made over the decades, but I don't think I would be very thankful for being given something like a MF135 now to do a days work on. I like a few creature comforts (like not wanting to wear ear defenders while driving) and defiantly prefer electronic linkage controls over mechanical (both to use and to fix).

    IH 674,light,robust,simple,brilliant loader tractor because of gearbox,and Valmet 665,underated in my opinion.Very reliable and along similar lines to the 674,just newer.

    agreed jd 6800 still going and such a revolution from 50 series plus straight away reliable doesnt always happen! Next jd 3350 put 3000 hrs on it wore out a set of tyres and sold for same money we gave.
    3rd IH 674 when next to ford 4000 which was its rival is so quiet and compact for power this one will I fear never leave farm.

    Has to be the Massey 135, probably the best ever usable power to weight ratio tractor.The sheer gutsiness of this machine from such a small engine made it one of the most popular tractors ever made. In the late 1960's one in four of all tractors sold in the UK was a 135.

    For me it has to be the Case CS94. I know it was a Steyr really but it looked good in Case colours. Mine was an absolute bombproof pocket rocket. Shouldn't have sold it

    It will be the only one in the known Universe and the surrounding area to get that far without being spannered.

    If I was your dad I would get it stuffed and mounted on a plinth.
