Great grandpa had an Aultman Taylor steam engine, then a Rumely. followed by a Sandusky. Then a McCormick 22-36. Grandpa bought a Deere A in 36 or 37. A brand new 41 A. Added a used 46 2n. Traded the 2n for an 8n. The 8n traded for a used MH 44 special diesel. Added a McCormick WD9. The 9 burned in a barn fire. The JD A and MH 44 were traded for an Oliver 1850. The 1850 traded for a new 1855. The 1855 traded for a used Deere 4430.
The 4430 is the only one we still have.

Dad started doing grandpa's alfalfa hay in 74. Dad bought a 47 Deere A,then added a Farmall M. Then an Allis Chalmers WD45 diesel. Then in 1978 dad started doing the planting and added a 1966 Farmall 706. In 2001 bought a 1962 Ford 4000 for post hole digger.

Dad's tractors we have the 706, AC WD45 and Ford 4000.

DAD was the only one of my immediate family that didn't farm (taught school) but did help my Mom's brother at times and I learned how to "drive" on Oliver 70, 77 and S88 as well as a Dodge grain truck. During high school and college, I worked for Dad's brother and my cousin who had some Oliver 880s, John Deere 4020/4320 and then 4430's.
JUST decided to stay with the Olivers as they fit my hobbies - Except for the John Deere compact tractor that DOES most of the work now !!!

Dad bought his first tractor in 1948 , a V Case. He traded it in 1950 on a brand new VA Case and in 1957 he bought a 35 Cockshutt Deluxe. Much later a 950 David Brown, a VAC Case , and then dad bought his last tractor in 1984 , a IH 584, brand new, and boy did he love to plough with that tractor. On my own farm I first bought a 430 Case on a neighbor?s retirement auction, then I bought a new 584 IH . Then traded it off on a new CaseIH 585 with a loader, and the 430 was traded off on a 530. I should have stopped there, lol but soon I bought a 885CaseIh with a cab, then traded the Case 530, and the 585CAseIh off on a New Ford 5640 4wd with loader, fantastic tractor. Next the CaseIh 885 has to go, it was a dog, and I bought a low hour CaseIH 5140Maxum, and later put a loader on it too, another great tractor. Along the way I bought a IH W4 , a M and a super A, as well as a VA Case, a 730 Case , a 930 Case and a 1030 Case. Traded the Ford off and the 5140 CaseIH and bought two brand new Kubota tractors with loaders in 2014 a Mx 100 and a Mx 135, turned the Mx 100 in last spring on a new M6 , because the 100 was not enough tractor

My dad's first tractor after the horses was a 1951 Ford 8n. When my family packed up and moved to WI we took it with us along with a Farmall Super A. My son had a Cockshutt 50, he took with us. After we got started farming there he bought 3 Cockshutt 30s a 40 and a 20. I bought an Oliver 1950.He still has the Cockshutts except for the 20. He still has the Ford 8N my dad bought new.The 1950 is gone too.

My Grandparents moved to this farm in 1946, big step up from 17 acres to 50, all in fruit. Horses were still the main tools. There was an International tractor here in 1950 when the barn burned down-not sure what model. That was replaced by a JD MI, then a JD 1010, both of which I grew up on. We inherited a JD 40 with loader from the neighbor who shared equipment with Grandpa, then I added a 2355N in 1998, followed by a 5500N, 2630, 5400MFWD to replace the 2630 and finally a 4430. About ten times the horsepower Grandpa used back in the late 60's to do more work than I do.

We had a Farmall Cub, Fordson Dexta, AC WD and a Ford Commander 6000. I now have Ford 9N, 8N and a Mahindra eMax 22 HST.

Dad bought his first tractor a Farmall A in 1945. Then traded the A in 1950 for a Farmall C. In 1952 traded the C on a Farmall SC. About 1953 he bought a used IH 10-20 on rubber to run the forage blower, then replaced it with a Ford 8N in 1954 and in 1956 replaced the 8N with JD 420U. In 1957 he traded Farmall SC on IH 300U and in 1962 traded 300U for B414D. In 1969 traded JD 420U for IH 434 Diesel. In 1974 traded B414D for IH 454. My brother started taking over the farm about 1980 and they traded IH 434 for IH 384 and about 1984 they bought an IH 684. In about 1992 they traded 384 for CIH 495. In about 2005 my brother bought a CIH 3230 and a few years ago he bought a used IH 474. So now he has IH 454, 474, 684, CIH 495 and 3230.

My dad operated a welding and repair shop on the farm. He would buy an old tractor, repair it , use it, then sell/ trade it for another. He owned every make at one time or another, but I don't remember any Allis's except for 2 or 3 all crop combines, then several Gleaners. He repaired restored numerous tractors after he retired, and we still have his E27N Fordson on wood. I bought his second last brand new tractor, a 2120 Deere which I still have, my brother bought the last brand new tractor he owned, a Ford 4600. I bought and sold a lot of old tractors, mostly Masseys, and still have a 44 Special . Bought a Deere 2955 brand new which I still use, just sold a 2755 that I had for almost 18 years. Still in the market, and not 'colourblind'....

When I grew up we were solid Deere, 2 A's, a B for awhile and a 630 along with all the Deere implements. That was broken up when I started farming on my own. The first tractor of my own was a 1070 Case along with a Case disk and plow. The 1070 eventually was traded for an IH.

As the years have gone by the farm has gained a few so now we have Oliver, Case, Ford, IH, and Deere. I would like to have a Minnie Mo and Allis just because, but that doesn't make me any money.

My grandfather started out with horses and a 1020 McCormick Deering. The first new tractor he could get was a WC Allis and he had all Allis untill he quit with the last one a 190 XT. Him and Dad did not get along real well and when the 190XT showed up Dad bought a new 4020. Dad already had a 70,720 and a 4010. Growing up we usually had an Allis wd,wd45,d14 or d15 around for small jobs but mostly 2510-3020-4020 Deere's for the rest. I now have about a dozen mostly 3020-4020's and a few other Deere tractors including the 4020 that Dad bought new. Tom

Just down the road from you, dad wore a coat of many colors. He and his brother across the pasture fence really liked Oliver stuff, but that all went to heck. It appears their dad liked IHC stuff, as those were from my dad's and uncles early days.

Dad traded the Oliver 88 off on a Ford 7700. I still have the IHC H and 300. And the 7700. I got my uncle's Super 77.

Dad got a Ford 960 at a farm sale and I got to drive it as he unloaded it and drove it up,the driveway. Gonna keep that one of course?

Between the 960 and the 7700 I liked the Ford stuff, so added the TW20, the 1720, and the 5200 over the years.

Looking for a big brother to the TW20, but other costs keep coming up, like the tiling again this year you probably saw driving by.

It seems to me, our side of hwy 15 is a lot of Red tractors, and the other side of hwy 15 is a lot of Green tractors.

Bruce, being on the Canadian prairie did you ever have any tractors with a tricycle front end? Seems like tricycle fronts were a rarity in your neck of the woods.

Dad was an Allis guy. He started with horses, then a JD L which didn't have enough power to pull a 12" plow ion our heavy black clay. Then two Allis B's which I have the last one. He bought a JD H and my brother and I were ecstatic---cultivating two rows of corn at a time. My grandfather, uncles and cousins were mostly Farmall guys(H,C,300,460,856,Super H) except for one renegade unlce who had an Oliver 66.
