We had one a LONG time ago for a scraper tractor, it was a tough tractor...but I mostly remember it running like crap much of the time. Probably ignition issues and cold weather operation like Jerry mentioned. The 3000 went down the road when we got a 3020 John Deere diesel..which I greatly preferred to the Ford.
I'm with Jerry about the advantages of diesel power, but if you are looking at this for operation within your riding arena, the reduced fumes from the gas job would be an advantage. If someone would come up with an electronic solution for the ignition woes, that would be ideal.
