Vintage tractor


Found this old tractor not to far from where I found the Alpacas (see yesterdays post). Looks like it's been there for awhile. Be interesting to know a little more about this vintage farm equipment. Perhaps one of the viewers of this blog site could offer up some knowledge!

  1. I found one similar tractor ten minutes behind my place. The gentlemen owner has died but the wife is alive.
    There is an old barn next to the Vintage tractor I have posted many times the barn and she has like 80 acres or more around my area.So they were all time dwellers even have sugar shacks in one place I walk. Matter of fact the side road is used for public and she owns it and all the bush I took days ago. She sold the 100 year old house to an instruction guy he was going to pull the house down but I hear he is undecided. So it is amazing what one can find scouting around the history that is left in a field no you dont know the rest of the find I have. Yours is still a beauty. Maybe someone has just used the property to leave it there as the one I found is almost garbage like
    Vintage tractor and yours looks much newer. It is an eye opener though. Love your take. Your scouting around you get great pictures and most times the actual picture history.

  2. Appears the tractor hasn't moved since the farmer climbed off it years ago. Think maybe the outer rims on the rear wheels were homemade add ons for more traction. Saw an old Fordson tractor that came with iron lugged wheels. It was produced during the WWII years by Ford. My Dad told me it wasn't worth a darn. Good find and interesting pic!

    1. Funny you should mention the outer rims... I looked at the picture for a long time and came to the same conclusion as you that they were likely add ons.

    2. Parker you've done it again... After a bit of investigation on the internet I found a photo of a 1925 Fordson Tractor that matches perfectly the tractor posted here with the exception that it doesn't have the outer rims as you noted. Good call!

  4. A little gas and oil, fresh coat of paint and some spark plug wires and it will be good as new! LOL
