Hello All,
I am looking to buy a tractor to use on a piece of land to do general cleanup and mowing. I have a limited budget, which of course leads to making compromises. Presently I am looking at a Case 580B with a FEL. It is 2wd and is diesel. It has a problem of jumping out of gear and it has not been used in the past couple of years. I can get it for $2k. Is the tranny problem a serious deal or is it a reasonable fix? I appreciate any help.....
thanks,
Rowdy

I have a 580B that slips out of 1st. I use a strap to hold the stick in place and have been using it that way for years as a farm tractor with occasional use. If you actually do fix it, let me know what it took. If that's all that's wrong, get it.
