    I wish...no it's not front wheel assist... the front tires are some that I had found and noticed they were the same wheel size as my front's so I mounted them up.... originally just for looks but it turns out that it really helps steering the thing in the mud and snow especially when the front starts getting a little lighter under a hard pull...

    Well all you guys with the Fords are making me feel like the red-headed stepchild with my Ferguson TO30.

    When I'm not using "Harry" more seriously, I've been known to give kids rides around the place while their parents enjoy a quiet drink without the energetic buggers underfoot. (In case you can't tell from the picture, I love hanging out with kids!) IMG_9426.JPG

    I forgot to include the close up shot of the radiator cap on my old cub.... I thought it went well with the tractor...they could probably have the same saying of "I may be slow ....But I'm get'ner done"........ 20160103_103603~3.jpg IMG_20180527_112216~2.jpg

  7. Not sure mine requires a photo.. but I’ve got a ‘62 Massey 50 with the Perkins diesel, power steering, loader, came with a mower, blade, and a couple augers. Love that tractor, it’s named “Chuck” in honor of the previous owner.

    We have a D17 Allis Chalmers that pumps oil out of the transmission and oils you leg up good, we call it Old Oily. We should fix that someday.

    My son was playing on the 9N Ford one day when he was just a little guy. He played at "driving" so long he got tired and fell asleep in the seat. I was looking for the original photos so I could scan in some better ones but I haven't been able to find them and I fear that my wife pasted them in a scrap book and gave it to him when he graduated high school.

    I was looking through the pictures on my computer and I found these other two pictures I took of my son playing on the Ford 9N. :) He now has a son older than he was in this picture. :)

  14. Finally stopped raining here so I drove the roadster over to Roxbury to see the most amazing collection of tractors ever. It was open house at Dudley Diebold's farm. I took over a hundred photos before my camera battery gave in. Here are some of this incredible fleet. Plus a few of his friends machinery.

    As I said my camera battery was all used up so I did not get any photos of the old cars that showed up including my roadster. Tractors everywhere, many I never heard of.
     
  22. What marvelous old equipment. Some of those are real monster machines.

    A few years back I was lucky enough to attend the Great Oregon Steamup, at Antique Powerland, in Brooks, Or. Must be 50 acres or more of all manner of tractors. The evolution of making power and getting it to the ground, two wheel, three wheel, four wheel, tracked, kerosene, diesel, gasoline, steam... Wonderful experience.

    Thanks for sharing.

  23. What is this?:confused: I picked it up at an old farm estate sale. It's the size of a pedal car. I just thought it was cool, and fit with my pedal cars. A salesman model maybe? Even though I don't collect Tractors, or farm equipment. I do Love this stuff. So THANKS for all your post, and photos.;) Ron.... 1746.jpg 1745.jpg 1744.jpg

  24. I agree. I'd have dragged that home, had I seen it. Be sure to let us know what it is, if you find out.

    I'm wondering if it's a small antique grain cleaner? That's what popped into my head anyway.

    Nice! It's good to see someone plowing. That has pretty much gone away around here as most crops are put in using no-till methods. I haven't plowed a field in a lot of years. We used to plow, disk, harrow and when the field looked like a ball field then we would plant. :) It would cost a fortune in fuel now. The last time I plowed was my garden using the 3 bottom snap-couple plow mounted to my WD45. It brought back old memories because that rig rares the front end up just like our 1965 4020 John Deere used to pulling the semi mounted John Deere 5 - 16 plow with an attached breaker bar that pulled like another bottom. When the going got tough you spent a lot of time pulling a wheelie across the field, steering with your brakes with the nose of the tractor pointed at the sky. :)

    This is one that got away. It sold at the same Greald Lappe estate sale that we bought that FE-powered Massey along with some other tractors and cars. Gerald Lappe built it. My brother was mad at me for not buying it but I thought was were getting in pretty deep. The guy that bought it did a real good job of redoing it and it looks great in a parade!
