Hello Janis, they did work hard, wonderful old tractors. Mr. enjoyed the post very much,Blessings Francine.
Ah...that tractor looks familiar! My hubby sold our H a few years back...it was his Dad's and maybe even his Grandpa's, but since it had no live hydraulics it didn't make sense for us to keep it. He regrets it now, though.My first tractor to drive was my Mom's Farmall Super A. She used it to cultivate her garden...it was great because it was "offset" so you could see the rows. How I wish I had that tractor today!
My son bought his own Farmall H and he and his dad restored it. He's driven it in tractor parades and it works for raking hay. Those Farmalls have staying power.
John Deere B, circa 1940. We had that tricycle for many years, worked well here in Flatlanderville. :))It had a side cutter mower, a mechanical bucket that we plowed snow with, and ran pretty good.It was bought by a local farmer who renovated it, and it became a poster child on a tractor calendar.
