Heck of it is, one would probably get more for the 8N than the B-414 and the 414 is the better tractor IMO. You couldn't give me a flatcar load of those redbellies.....

Hi Boss,
8N looks to be in good shape, always liked that little tractor, and there are quite a good many of them in Ireland. Don't know enough about the 414 to comment.
Good luck with them both, and have a Merry Christmas, that goes to all the contributors to the forum.
Bernard,
Donegal Cub.

Donegal, I think Ford made them in Ireland for a time. Surely they made tractors there, but not sure about 8N. They are good stout tractors, but heck, I like yeller Cubs too.

Only saw a 414 once, it was parked. Nice looking tractor, but I bet the 8N is cheaper to keep going. If you need a loader, the Ford wins in that department too.

Boss, you're getting to be quite the Ford guy. I started tractor driving at 3 years old on a Ford, long before driving the Super M. 8) If truth be known, I still have a Ford in the back corner of the barn. :shock:

I see you have the oil drain pan under the Ford to catch the oil leaks…. I had to say something bad about Fordsred is in my blood :P … just kidding… it looks like you found some good tractors.
I’m really good at doing nothing…With that said…I’m really, really good at doing nothing

Hi Buzzard Wing yes Ford did make tractors in Ireland from 1927 - 1933 and then its whole production and assembly was moved to Dagenham in England in '33. the Ford N series went into production in 1939 - '54, so none were made in Ireland. In fact the Ford N 8 came on stream in 1947 and was the cause of the major split between Ford & Ferguson, resulting in a settlement in favour of Ferguson, after a long and protracted court case, to the tune of 10 Million Dollars. So making the Ford 8 N a very famous tractor indeed. Happy Christmas to all you fantastic guys on the Cub Forum/ :{_}:

Yep, Ford got caught 'stealing' Ferguson's three point hitch. Farming would have been a lot different if the 3 point and IH's Fast Hitch had not been proprietary.
