    My Two Poppers

    Hello everyone. I wanted to post some videos of my two poppers. My dad left them to me when he passed a few years ago, but we always shared the same enjoyment of these old tractors. He kept them under a barn and used them mainly for bush hogging and just burning gas. Over the 2013 winter, I rebuilt the carbs, replaced the plugs, wires, points, condensers, coils, and changed all fluids on both tractors. They run exceptionally well for their age, but I still respect them regardless. They don't make these anymore, so you gotta appreciate their charm. Here you go....turn the volume up!!

    Pretty nice!

    After going to the antique tractor show a few months ago, I thought it would be fun to get an older tractor for a restore. Functional and fun at the same time.

    For any contest not involving a loader, remote hydraulics, or MFWD, I will gladly put my 65 year old, $2,000, Model M against any new 20 to 25 horse tractor.

    I believe that for many uses, old tractors are just as capable as new ones... and in some cases they might even be better. In terms of power per dollar they are especially hard to beat. Parts are cheap and plentiful, you can fix them in the field with a hammer, and they are comparatively very cheap to buy. Sure, they are big and heavy, and they need a bit more TLC to keep in tip-top shape, but unless you need a warantee, a loader, or MFWD, I see very little point in a new machine unless you just want one. Old tractors certainly have more character and charm. There's a reason that the video for "she thinks my tractor's sexy" featured a Model 70 and not a brand new CUT!

    I like that A... Very pretty. Once the dust settles from my Farmall 656 project, I'll be on the hunt for an A.

    Truth be told....the A just has more "character". My dad bought it when I was three years old and has been in the family for a looong time. I also like the older models.....all steel and iron. The A has a more POP to the exhaust than the 60, but both run and operate extremely well. I always keep my equipment turn key ready for the unexpected. Hopefully in the next few years I can repaint the A, since the 60 is straight as an arrow and sheet metal is pristine...zero rust. Even my 1020 is all steel...no plastic.....although I am eyeing a 5045D 2wd in the near future.
