Here is mine, a Case 480 LL. Everyone should have a tractor!
A little smaller but built just as tough
Left--1968 Cub Cadet 125 with a QA-42 snow thrower and on the right is my 1966 Cub Cadet 122 with a 42" front blade. This is my snow crew.
These are also my everyday lawn care/roto tilling/plow tractors.
Michaeljp86 are those working tractors? That is some fine looking iron.
They were heading to the scrap yard when I got them.
Color me green here, 2305 and a 2520.
only the farmall left. the rest have been sold or traded. . . .
There's a little snow on them today but here they are.
1954 Ford 860
1947 Case SC with the trailer I built to haul firewood logs out of the woods.
This what I mow most of my lawn with. 1952 Allis Chalmers CA with a Woods L59 mower
What kind of tires are thos up front? They look like military tread.
My dad had a farmall 230 which I think is a little newer version of the C. I think pulling a plow it would give his 90hp JD a run for its money.
Me on my Fordson Major 1954
Here's my old Ford just prior to selling it and then one of my John Deere "fleet" with wife and grandson.
Here is me/mine from the other day after some snow, My wife was playing with her new Nikon D7000 I got her for Christmas:
If your a JD Fan, please check out my JD forum at www.greentractortalk.com
Im like Jeff, all IH stuff, heres some of mine. No trailer queens here, all workers
Heres my dads grape tractor
I'm "Green with envy":lmao:
This is what I use at out hunting land for food plots, maintenance, etc. Yanmar CUB CADET EX3200
It's small but it always starts.
I went from 0 tractors to two many, the one without backhoe is a 801, the one with the backhoe is a 601.
I thought it didn't snow in Texas?
As seen by the posts in this thread, tractors are like tools, you can't have too many!:rofl:
Hah,,,,,,,,,,,,,,not much snow here where I am at usually,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
The tractors home will be in NM when I am done.
Those sure were some big heavy backhoes for such a small tractor.
Where in NM?
Mac and Michael,
I have about 5 acres near Las Vegas.
And, yes it is a awful heavy backhoe for the ford 601, Sherman F-8 Power Digger, pins and bushing are wore out, hydraulic rams look pretty good, someone used and abused it. The front end loader is a Davis 101A, beat up as well. The tractor has a the small diesel engine with a broken crank. Does have power steering, and all hydraulics appear to be sound for rebuilding. The Ford 801 has the big diesel engine that runs poorly(smoking). Three projects in all, 801 rebuild engine and cosmetics, Backhoe and Front End Loader replace hoses pins and bushings and both need welding and reinforced in several places. Then put power steering, FEL & BH on 801.
So these will keep me busy for a while.
By the way anyone happen to see on line fibreglass kits 8 or 9N Ford tractors that will fit any garden
tractor. Also comes with rear fenders. Then my 8N will have a baby. Sleek
What kind of loader is that? I have never seen anything like it.
The david brown in my pictures was bought with a broken crank. O heard diesel dont like to be bogged down at idle, it causes vibration in the crankshaft. The guy who had it would run a baler with it so I think he ran the PTO in 1000rpm at idle. It had a 2 speed PTO on it.
Is that a massy ferguson loader? There is a old farm near me with 2 or 3 of those rotting away. Lots of other stuff too but they wont sell any of it.
My goodness, yes I would say the crank was broken. Was the block ruined?
On one of the breaks you could see where the twp broken ends rubbed on each other. I think it still ran a long time with it broke only in on spot. One connecting rod hit the block and broke the nut off but the block survived.
Here was the first start, that was christmas eve 2011
My cousins have two of those David Browns. A 1200 and a 990 with a loader. The crank in the 1200 has been replaced one and the 990 twice!! Needless to say, they don't really use those two anymore lol.
