We had a couple trees blow down in our latest windstorm so I thought I would use my '52 John Deere A to pull the tree out to where I can cut it up. I got the tractor staged, but ran out of daylight cutting the tree loose from the stump. Should get it pulled out tomorrow.

Cjet69, i would like to get an AN and an AW someday, good looking tractor. is that an older restoration or in original work clothes?

i have an odd question, why do you have the rear wheels set in so close?
I have had this tractor for just over a year now. It's been painted at some point along the way. The wheels were set this way when I got it and it looks worse than it is because of the long axles that these have. I was able to get one wheel to slide, but so far the other is stuck pretty good. I hope to get it freed up this summer when the weather is nicer.

I have another thread on the crank swap I did on this tractor. 1952 John Deere A crank swap

Pulled the logs out this morning and got a little mud on the tires. Video to come later.

I see quite a few around here in NW Washington. It probably had something to do with the type of crops in the area. I don't think they would be to good in soft ground.

That's prety cool! :good2: Those older tractors sure sound a lot different than the new ones do.

Also a lot different to operate - climb up, clutch in, make sure you have the gears properly selected, release brake, slowly release clutch and adjust throttle as necessary, keep it going in a straight line without the benefit of power steering or 4WD.

THANKS for sharing!

We had mostly clear skies today so I loaded the saw in the Gator and bucked the logs up.
