The Shibaura built Fords are actually nicely equiped compact tractors. Post a pic when you get a chance. I have a 1981 1100, just a bit smaller than your 1215.

I've got a 96 1215 with about 800 hours on it. Have the loader, 4' finish mower, 5' offset backblade, one bottom plow, and home made quick hitch. Primarily use it for snow removal, manure management, cleaning the horse corrals, and mowing the pastures. It's handy as heck. The rear turfs are well worn, and I'm looking into the Tru-Powers from Carlisle. New skins mounted with Rim Guard is gonna run just over $400. But I can get a set of chains for $140 and hold off on tires for a year or two.

Really like the lil' tractor, just wish it had power steering. Can be a bugger in soft soil when the bucket is full.
