Neither are real pic worthy but we've got a '47 Farmall C (yard art a this point, hasn't run in years) and a Case 580E, don't recall the year off the top of my head.

Those are some sweet red tractors. This one belonged to my grandpa, believe its a '47 model, Farmall Cub. Still gets used on a regular basis around my grandmothers house. I'm promised to inherit it, not sure if I'm gonna restore it then or just leave it in the shed and keep on using it. Here's a pic of my ugly mug, breaking ground for a food plot.



This is my grandpa's old MF Backhoe. My grandma sold it shortly after he passed for $700 and to this day still thinks she came out good on it. My cousin is ridin in the "crow's nest" in case I need to stop in a hurry (no brakes). Keep em coming, I love old tractors.

These tractors are awesome to drive, easy to drive, and just plain fun driving in a parade, geared low, just pick a low gear and let it idle thru the parade route while you have fun waving.

okay, finally, here are some pix, both are nearly identical, being made only a couple years apart. you can come pick them up with a large trailer or delivery is available for a small fee.

these are Farmall F20's both made between 1937 and 1939. Retired from farming in the 50's, they sat in a barn until the late 70's when they were revitalized for parades, then in the late 90's they were completely restored for parade duty.

Apparently my boy :hearts: tractors as well.

Went to his first tractor show Saturday. Grampa sat him up on his Super M; he didn't want to get off. Looks like I might need to do some shopping.



Here it is tuggin' the sled.

Here's my snow tractor. It's a Thiokol Hydromaster with a 200 hp Allis Chalmers turbo diesel. Full hydrostatic drive. Plows snow like a Mo-Fo.

Pulled my grandpa's old Super C out of our barn this weekend. It was running great when the tires finally gave out about 5 years ago. The tires were so dry you couldn't puncture them with a hot soldering iron. What finally got them was I decided to fawk with them by putting air in. Only took a couple minutes with the compressor to have the tubes spitting out from the cracks in the treads.

Gonna get it running again and use it around the place. Probably pick up a three point hitch kit for it and find a few new uses.

The free tractor thread reminded me this one needs a bump.

Got the old tractor running real good, she purrs like a kitten now. You can idle it down so slow you can almost count each cylinder firing.

Fella up in East Texas made me a killer deal on some practically new tires with wheels. Got them swapped on a couple weeks ago. I take my 2 yo boy for rides around the neighborhood almost every day.

Flatlander tractor. You'd get killed on that thing in no time where I'm from.

It's a row crop tractor...hard to grow corn on the side of a mountain.

Not with a narrow front end, it's not a row crop.

It's not the front end that defines a row crop tractor, more the height and ability to fit tires inbetween the rows. Many early "row crop" tractors were tricycles.

Not even mountains, just hills. More than one farmer has been killed when his tractor rolled on him and or pinned him to the ground he was working.

Ya, I know, just funnin' ya. I was hoping you'd pull out something about terraces so I could get you on them being flat...it would have been hi-larious, I swear.

I have a 1948 Case VAC with a 60 inch woods belly mower on it that will be getting a restore this winter. I can't wait to drive it around my now middle of town hood. There is a guy 2 street over that has a tractor in his garage too. I also have a 1979 Cub Cadet 1650 with a 44 inch deck.


It's red or orange around here.
