    Old tractor nirvana?

    First, i am not an expert on old tractors but I do like them!
    Second, most of the tractors pictured here aren't green but that is only because I didn't have time on Saturday to explore ALL 50 ACRES!

    Ok, so for 46 years I have made two trips a day past Burgh Implements. Charley Burgh was almost as old as my grandfather (Pap was born in 1896 and lived 94 years!) and those two chatted all the time. I always found it funny when they talked about people they knew that fought in the civil war.

    Anyhow, one time back in 1986ish I took pap over to Burgh's to pick something up. I didn't really look around or go beyond the gate mostly because it was one of those deals where it is local and always been there so it didn't interest me much.

    Fast forward to Saturday: I needed a burn barrel so I ran over to Burgh's to get one. The sign out front said $20 and it was less than a mile drive from my house. I talked to one of the older gents there and told him what I was looking for and we shuffled our way back past a couple of buildings where he pointed out what I was looking for.

    In the meantime, I was awestruck at all of the "junk" sitting around.

    In the google maps link below it the smaller loop of driveway south of the eastern most building is where I drove and took the pictures. There are 50 acres there, I maybe covered a football field worth of tractors.

    When I get time and maybe after the leaves fall off the trees I may go back and spend a Saturday with the camera and the boys and walk as much of the property as I can. For anyone looking for used tractor parts I would put these guys on the list!

    Enjoy the photos, I hope the convey the spectacle well enough!

    Burgh Implements

    Holy cow, Burgh Implements brings back so many memories of my father and childhood growing up in Northwestern Pennsylvania! Thank you, BBarn, and I certainly hope you're able to post many more photos.

    Dad was a hobby farmer who presided over 60 acres and a large barn filled with horses, ponies, sheep, goats, cows and chickens. Looking back, I now realize he didn't have much money left over after supporting his family and all of these animals so he relied on older, well used equipment. I have vivid memories of many Saturday trips to Burgh Implements to find parts for his ancient tractors, corn planter, cultivators, manure spreader, baler, sickle bar, etc.

    As a kid, I thought Burgh Implements was the place where EVERY retired piece of farm equipment on the planet was supposed to go....perhaps there was even a law that required it! I was mostly interested in the tractors and some of them seemed to be in better condition than the ones poor old Dad used!
