I have three Case 400's. I'd probably have four but the wife said no way.

Wow, most folks that indulge the Old Tractor Addiction don't have that nice a house! Nice shops, yes... but not houses.

Scott(TN)    Posted 01-31-2003 at 07:38:19       [Reply]  [No Email]
That is the shop----

Donna from Mo    Posted 01-31-2003 at 09:58:59       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Would you believe that, after reading your answer to my post and laughing out loud, I am so gullible that I still went back and looked at the picture thinking it MIGHT be the shop?

I wish I had a barn. A nice big drafty one with busted out winders would be fine. I got a 1955 IH 300 Utility and a 1941 Farmall B, both in running condition, and a 1945 Farmall A and 1951 Allis CA in non-running condition.

I don't post much anymore, but had to jump into this one, cause I like old tractors. I have a J.D. 520 and a J.D. 420crawler. My father had an J.D.B and J.D.A many years ago. So J.D. kind of runs in the family. But I wouldn't say I'm completely loyal to J.D. been looking at caterpillar lately. Also I been looking at an Allis Chalmers with a loader. My tractors don't reside in the barn, they sit out in the weather, they look like working tractors and that's what they are.

Here's a Lamborghini Tractor I....    Posted 01-30-2003 at 07:02:38       [Reply]  [Send Email]

I have had about 13 assorted Ford Ns and a few others like JD 1951 MT, Mighty Mite, Farmall Cub, Ferguson TO-20 & 30, and a Panzer. But now the one I use is a 1969 MF 135 Orchard 3/cyl Perkins Gas. Realy like the Power Steering and is a great old tractor. Mark H.

..cuz there's not much that's more important, living on some land, than a good tractor. Shoot...I'd rather drive my tractor than my big expensive pick-up. Lynch

I forgot my implements    Posted 01-30-2003 at 06:17:26       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Got a new stump jumping Howse 6ft bushhog, a Blade for grading, a disc, a plow, and a scoop that was an old horse drawn one until we took the welder to it and made it a three point rig. My MF175 works em all and acts like they're not even there. I gotta say...I really like this 175...she's a worker. Lynch

Dave    Posted 01-31-2003 at 05:07:41       [Reply]  [No Email]
I am thinking very seriously about getting a MF. The power to $ ratio seems to be better than most and from what I hear they hold up pretty well too...

'46 Farmall A that is basicly a basket case right now. Waiting till I can find the time to, work on getting her restored. My working tractor is a JD 790 (30 hp dsl.) with lots of toys. Keep it hid most of the time so the local real farmers don't get ta laughing an run inna ditch.

My only real tractor is a B John Deere - the kind with a bag of extra spark plugs in the toolbin, the gearbox is sticky sometimes and it shimies in high gear - you know the kind :)

I was leveling some fill on the boat landing and trying to get that thing outa second and once the front wheels got out on the dock, i swear, another 3 feet and i'd have bailed off! If the lake can stop that tractor, i was willing to let it try! But it's the only tractor ever made that jingles and clops like a trotting team going down the road so it still gets run. And it will pull the whole tree if i choose. :)

Mark A    Posted 01-30-2003 at 05:24:31       [Reply]  [No Email]
A John Deere 3020 for the heavy jobs, and a IH Super C with all the planters and cultivators for the light work. Sold my John Deere 40 standard, and got a Kawasaki Bayou 250, and use that for the even lighter work (boy am I getting lazy!).

Dave    Posted 01-30-2003 at 05:18:28       [Reply]  [No Email]
Ford 2000 that my step dad got when he moved to Chattanooga in 1975. He bought a mini farm of 13 acres and the guy wouldn't sell unless he took the garage kept tractor that the guy bought new. They sold their place about a year ago and I bought the tractor. I am going to buy a bigger tractor this summer that has a front end loader on it. I was going to build a front end loader for this one, but it doesn't have pwr steering plus I really need a bigger tractor. I painted the sht metal and wheels last summer and put new rear tires on it.I may keep it to restore or get something older to restore. I've been itchin to get something to work on (like I don't have enough stuff already) I may get another ChevyII or Chevelle or a 57 or a Super Bee or Charger or an old John Deere ...ya never know with me!

My 'fun' tractor is a 1938 McCormick Deering F-14. Crank start, no hydraulics, no three point hitch, just an engine and wheels. I use it for hauling trailers, the manure spreader and occasionally a little sicklebar mowing.

My 'working' tractor is a 1988 John Deere 750 compact diesel. Lotsa toys for that one. I get ragged on a lot for having so many toys for such a small operation (4 acres, more or less) but they laugh out of the other side of their face when they need something done...

Lynch in E.TX    Posted 01-30-2003 at 06:21:13       [Reply]  [Send Email]
We just have 25 Texas that equals only 4. Lynch

Fawteen    Posted 01-30-2003 at 09:05:26       [Reply]  [No Email]

Oh. I figured you were saying it takes 25 acres of that Texas blow-sand to grow what I can grow on 4 acres of this good Maine loam...


Donna from Mo    Posted 01-30-2003 at 13:58:27       [Reply]  [No Email]
You make me laugh out loud at least a half-dozen times a day!

I figger there ain't none of us getting out of this deal alive, we might as well have a few yuks along the way.

Somebody (Steven Wright?) said something to the effect that "There is absolutely no evidence to support the notion that life was intended to be taken seriously."

psychologist? I was merely stating that 25 acres in my little town is neighbor down the road has about 200 acres and my closet neighbors behind me all have 30-50...I do have a couple of 1 or 3 acre places near...but that just a yard here. My "front yard" is about 6 acres and the rest is behind me. Didn't mean to set you off or anything...I switched to 1/2 decaf....jeez.. Lynch

Don't take it personal Lynch...He's just jealous cuz his yard is a 5 gallon mud bucket on the fire escape outside the apartment window...

He does get to ride a train to work every day though...Lucky guy...

I have Bonnie 8N...She is a worker...My sister still has my Grandmothers 'purchased new' 1939 Farmall H...Although I did break it in half last fall...Good thing there is another one out back with the casting I need to fix it...

Mom sold my Farmall M when I was in Utah for work in '94...Still kicking myself over that one...

'48 Ford 8N    Posted 01-30-2003 at 03:48:51       [Reply]  [Send Email]
My first and only tractor (so far) is my 48 8N (Molly).

Because of my very hilly ground, I wanted something with a low center of gravity and wide stance. Because I've only got 19 acres, small was just fine. Because I'm a tightwad, I needed something cheap.

My 8N filled all my criteria, plus others I didn't think about before I got it. Standard Category 1 3 pt hitch and PTO so I can use just about any implement I can pull. Parts readily available all over, both OEM and aftermarket. Once I got her running well (took me about 6 months to fix all the stuff previous owners had jury-rigged), she has never let me down.

And a really really great "users group" on the YT site.
