PostSubject: tractors at the house   Tue 16 Jun 2009, 6:29 pm

When I moved in my house for the first 2 years ther were some parade and antique pulling tractors for fairgrounds in my barn. dont know what some of them were. AN oliver


A farmall M and H, and two others





The forn 8N was the only one that came with the house. It was not parade quality.
The others had been sitty in my barn for about 8 years ever since the owner passed.

My wife has the pics of the actual tractors from when the guys sons came and took them home.

doesnt take much to power a mower jus got to find one wit a 3 pt hitch i think a C or a Super C would be good for that. Id say H, but if your just mowin wit it you dont need much.

Yeah right! lol!

Don't get me wrong...I have nothing against Farmall's, but if I had to pick between a Farmall and an 8N, I'd choose the 8N anyday. My dad bought his 8N in 1984, and other than a rebuild in about 1990 and routine maintenance, nothing has ever really gone wrong with it. Here's a pic:

That tractor has been painted that way ever since he bought it. Someday we'll put it back to red and gray. I also like them painted blue and white...blue belly with white sheet metal and wheels.

Someone locally took an old Bolens tractor like mine and painted it all red and put IH decals on it. I'll get a picture of it if it shows up at the shows this summer.

That was just cus of the extra wheels. If it didnt have that dead axle i could drag the Huskee around all day with the brakes on.
