Anyone have/use any flat belt drive equipment? I'd like to pick up an old corn sheller or something to play with. The old belt drive thresher setups are pretty cool...I'd have to grow something to thresh though.

How did the TO20 compare to the N, live hydro, pto? I understand the 20 has more horsepower but was wondering about the features. There is a TO20 for sale near me I'm pondering about,they're asking $2000. My 49 N is getting pretty tired trying to work the 80 acres I have now and am thinking about getting it some help. I have a 641 back in FL but it will be awhile before I can get it.

The To20 is a better tractor, but they can have issues - the blocks crack between the sleeves. Top/ bottom and the center main like my to30 did.

Ferguson prices have dropped alot in the last couple years a beater was over 2k awhile back. Id look for a better tractor for the $, like a 641 or something comparable. I know my 641 makes my to30 look like a pos with the extra features.

Thanks man, I let that one go. Was mostly curious about it having live hydro for the lift or not.
I'll nurse the 8N untill November when I bring my 641 out here.

This is too cool of a thread to let die. I have a thing for little blue tractors so I picked up this one despite it being way overkill for my use. 1990 Ford LGT 16D with 16hp 3cyl diesel. The thing runs great and I really enjoy mowing with it.

I also use a Kubota L2600dt 4wd from time to time but it isn't anything exciting and I don't have pictures of it.

This is my Dad's 1962 Oliver 500, it's got a pretty ghetto front axle mod to get more clearance for sugar cane farming but it's never caused a problem. He bought it used about 30 years ago and it's run like a fine Swiss watch since the day he bought it. It's got a 4 cyl. 35HP diesel, from what I've read it's just a rebadged David Brown 850 painted green. He bought it for $500, it came with a blade and rusted out bush hog. About 25 years ago he took the gear box off the bush hog and had someone build him a custom 1/2" thick plate aluminum deck for it, I think he paid twice as much for the aluminum deck as he paid for the whole tractor but it's still not rusted.





I've always had dreams of refurbing it one day.

Thats a nice Oliver 500. Looks like a typical cane tractor with a busted an fixed frontend.

From the little bit I can find the Oliver high crops had some very low production numbers. So take care Of her, you have a family jewel there.

Hell yes! Any 826 tractors in there? We have one and I think they're a pretty rare bird... Those 1468 and 1568 bring the want!

Edit: I see where I was already in this thread before... I need to get some better pics of our tractors!

We have five "M" tractors
A 560 Diesel
826
886
966
100 Hydro
1066
1066 Hydro (currently the hydro is out of it.)
1086
1586
John Deere 8630
Three Michigan 35 loaders
920 Cat loader
Ford A-64 loader
Fiat-Allis Dozer

Some Case backhoe and forklift... Not that cool though.

And picked up a Kwik Mix Hi-lifter all-terrain forklift today. Thing is an ugly beast! I love it! After some brief searching on it it looks like they started making them in 55 and it wasn't long before they were bought out.

My Family owns almost 50 Case IH (inc. Farmall, McCormick Deering, etc) that are either working, restored, or in need of restoration.

When times were good my dad bought and restored alot of Farmalls, plus he never sells anything so we have alot older working tractors (786, 1486, 3488's,) Our whole family belongs to the local "Steam show" and displau about 10 items every year as well as being Chairmen of the tractor pull (antique and sactioned).

Heres some pics

Me and my wife on my 1953 Farmall Super H, restored after it was given to me for my 13th birthday.

My Brothers 49 (?) Case LA in its original paint. We were on our way out to a pull, the darn thing weighs in at 9500lbs.

My Dads Farmall M "Trojan" road grader which we use to grade the pull track.


One of our 1954 Farmall Super MTA's in a slow race against my Super H...I almost one without a torque amplifier! although I could hear the bottom end clacking.

This is my '55 WD45 I picked up last fall to haul firewood and push snow. She's been a real labor saver.

The day I brought it home:

^Those WD45's are a great tractor, We still have the orignal one my Grandfather bought. It was used for all the work around the farm for years (tillage, planting, Harvesting etc). We still use it for digging potatoes in our small plot, hauling wagons, and for a large sprayer - turned - pressure washer.

I contacted a guy that I found online who seems to know a lot about the Olivers and he says that there were only 4 high crop diesel Oliver 500s brought into the US in 1963 and he knows where 2 of them are. I'm waiting for my mom to get me the VIN from ours so I can see if it's really a factory high crop or just a chop job.

Yours looks like a high crop. The front end looks home made, but the rear looks to have the drop boxes. That is what is the hardest to replace. A lot of them were busted and then rewelded back together. A lot of cotton pickers used similar drop boxes so sometimes they were used if a box was unrepairable.


Farmall high crop boxes were chain drive, while the cotton picker boxes were gear drive and required the diff to be flipped to get correct rotation.

It's my understanding that the final drives are just turned down to give it extra height, in stock form they're turned towards the back so it sits at the correct height. I always noticed that the fenders didn't line up with the rear tires but I always thought it was because the fenders may not be original to the tractor.

Back in 1987 we had a tornado hit and destroy our house. It rolled that Oliver completely over and left it on it's side. That broke the starter and exhaust manifold and threw the hood about 1/4 mile from our property. I was young but from what I remember the fenders were trashed after that so they were swapped with fenders from another tractor. My uncle has 2 Oliver 500s and one has been a parts donor for the other 2, I think the fenders may have come off of that one. We beat the hood back into shape with a small sledge hammer, rattle canned it and called it good.

Just a few pics from the Texas Early Days Tractor and Engine Association state show we went to last weekend. It was fun, wish the weather would have held out better. We didn't realize a cold front was coming through that morning and were completely unprepared...we had to stop at Target for coats and pants.

Fordson Super Major with a 4wd conversion made in England.



The kid's favorite part of the entire show: playing in the straw pile after the wheat threshing demo


BIG tricycle


Nice John Deere "Lindemann" crawler during the parade


Cool Ford 4wd pickup


Nice Mack
