With 14 kids, my dad bought whatever he could afford most of the time. He started out with a new '47 JD B, then added an Allis WD after he tipped the B over a few times with the Du-Al loader. He later bought his brother's WD45 diesel and then his cousin's WD45 diesel, which were the tractors I spent most of the time on. He then bought a Massey 135 diesel w/MP that was his favorite for many years. We also had a 1650 Oliver diesel, 2 JD 720 diesels, a JD 730 diesel, JD 50 and 60. He then found a White 2-85 and bought a new Hesston 100-90 FWA when he paid off the mortgage. His last new one was a Ford 5610S.

I collect Allis Chalmers tractors and have close to 100 now. I do custom work with a few, mostly 175 diesels and a 6080 cab tractor.

Guess you could say dad wasn't much on tractors. He bought a '51 8N Ford with loader in 1952, and that was it. We had a dairy, tractor was used for scraping and spreading manure, what little tillage we did (plowing and putting in pasture), and general utility work around the place. Cows went away in '61, he sold the farm in '71 (and moved to another smaller place), and the tractor stayed around until the '80's.

My father's first tractor was a 1927 Fordson followed by a 1952 8N, a 1960 MF 65 high arch gas, a 1944 MH 101 Jr. standard to replace the Fordson, a 1968 MF 165 high arch diesel with a loader. After I took over I bought a Ford 6000 diesel and sold the MH. Later I sold the 6000 and 165 and bought a 5000 diesel.

When grand dad bought the farm in 1928 for $2800.00 he had 2 teams. When my father was 10 they bought a Used F12 Farmall.
Dad thought he had the world by the tail. In 1942 they bought a new 42 B John Deere, in 1948 they bought a new Cyclone A
John Deere, with plows & disc. 1961 He picked up a used 730 Pony start diesel & a used 1946 Slant dash A John Deere ( that
we called Chuck ). Around 65 we found a good buy on a 630 wide front. We found a Model 60 John Deere at a auction for 400.00
later went to look at a Combine for sale & came home with a Wide Frt Model 60 John Deere with weights & 3 Point for 600.00.
I picked up a 58 620 with plows from a retiring farmer for 2500.00 Later they same month I bought a Oliver 60 with cultivators
that ran for 35.00 I sold it about 2 months later for 650.00. Used that $$ to buy a 530 John Deere off ebay that I restored.
Bought a Model 50 John Deere out of a fence row, cheap, & I didn't like it so I sold it. I picked up a John Deere 50 with a 2
Loads of attachments for 400.00& We have a 730 electric start Diesel that was the right price & 2750 4wd & 3255 4wd cab tractor.
As it stands right now only F12, 46 Slant dash A, Oliver 60 & the John Deere 50 are gone, they rest as still around & they all
gets Used..

We had every letter series IH made at one point are another. Each did a certain job, then Dad would decide we needed something bigger or faster to do the job. Over the years, he bought and sold those tractors seems like every couple of years. Last IH he bought was an 806 diesel. Of all those, I know the Super C, 460, ,560, Super M, 2 Hs, a 450, a 350, and Im sure theres one or two Im forgetting are still in use today. I think the 706 and 806 are used on one farm about 40 miles from me, but i cant swear thats them. Dad later bought a 4020 and 3020 John Deere, both diesels, and a year later bought a Case 1030 CK. The 4020 is on duty with my cousin, mainly just bushhogging and bailing some. The 3020 is restored and one of cousins prized possessions. The 1030 has had many owners since Dad sold it. I last saw it at auction about 10 years ago. Current (then) owner had put a new starter on it, since he burned up the old one trying to get it started. It wouldnt start at the auction, so it didnt sell.

I'd be using every brand if I did,but to the core,yes. The first tractor on the farm was an Oliver Hart Parr 70. My uncle Donald had a Super 55,Uncle Claude had an 88 diesel and a 60. Dad had a 66 that he wouldn't get rid of,but he'd go to Archbold Ohio and buy another tractor and cultivator every spring then sell it in the fall. Over the years there was a John Deere A and B,Massey Harris 22 and Pony,International 300U,Farmall H,an F12,Case SC,Ford 8N and 9N Oliver 70,probably others that came home for a few weeks then got traded.
I bought and sold a few myself when I was in Jr High and High School. Massey Harris 101 JR,Ford 8N,Farmall H,JD B,Case SC and DC,Allis Chalmers C. Sometimes I kind of wish I'd have kept buying and selling,but I just got too busy milking cows to mess with it anymore.
But ya,I've got 10 Olivers and 2 Whites. I use the Whites and 5 or 6 of the Olivers right along every day to make a living.

As I grew up my grandpa on my dads side use mostly Farmall tractors. My uncles had Farmall, John Deere, and Fords. Are attachments where mostly horse drawn pulled with the tractors. the case bailers had a Wisconsin engine on it that operated the bailer. My grandpa had a 1933 International Harvester truck with a big flat bed. We use to haul the hay around town on it. We as kids did not care about the name of the equipment we just always where glad it ran and got the job done. Those where the days.

Grandfather farmed with a JD B and a team. In 1950 bought this 8N. kept the team and got rid of the deere. Dad had 2 fordson majors an oliver 70 and an ih 300 for a short bit. He was glad to see that thing go. At 14 I bought a JD b. At 16 sold the B and got an oliver super 88. That was in 74. 2 more 88s and a 1600 after that. Dad quit farming in 84. Still pretending I'm a farmer, but it ain't much anymore. Tractors I have now. The 8N, oliver 1800, 1550, The super 88, 2 fleetline 88s, 770, a red 550, 70, OC6, OC12, 552 forklift and an IH 260 backhoe.
