When Dad came back from Korea, he started farming with an IH 300, then bought an IH 350 utility, In 1964, we had a machine shed fire that destroyed the 300, the 350 utility was saved. He then bought a 51 M and sold the 350 utility. Said over the years that he regretted doing that. In 1965, we moved to the current home place that was owned by the local IH dealer. Dad rented the ground, and we saw lots of IH tractors that the land lord provided to do the farm work. 706 gassers, an 806 gasser, a 450 propane burner, numerous 560 diesels. In 1975, the landlord died, so Dad bought his own 560 diesels, he had two of them at the time. Then he bought an 856 a 1066, then a 986, and still had the old M. In 2005, he had an retirement auction, but kept the 986 and the old M.
After Dad died, my sister bought the 986 and the old M. They are both still at the home place.

(quoted from post at 18:52:40 01/02/1Cool I apologize if this is a repeat question from the past. I am wondering if you or your family still uses the brand(s) of tractors currently on the farm that were used in the past? For example, from my families past, my grandpa and dad had John Deere, Allis Chalmers and Ford. I remember the JD and AC tractors. My grandpa had a 1956 JD 70, 1949 Model A JD, Allis Chalmers WD, not sure of the year. My parents moved off the family dairy farm 45 years ago. Long story.....So these were the tractors I remember on the farm. As I farmed later on my own on my tiny acreage, I had an AC WD45, AC C, JD 60, Farmall M, Oliver 1850 gas, and lastly a Case 1070. I didn't have these all at one time, but over a 20 year span. The best tractor for the gas was my AC WD45, and the Case 1070 was the best diesel tractor I had. So I guess I did somewhat stay in the family brands from days gone by. What did you all use on the farm. I would like to read your stories please. Thank you.

Growing up, all our stuff was rust colored. Dad had an F-20, a Regular, an 8N, and a 9N. Not sure on the 9N. It had 3fwd, and an over drive. I think there were three or four other F-20s in the grove. Old, half disassembled, ran about as good as the ones we farmed with.
He up[graded to an M when I was in high school, then had a heart attack and decided to retire. He turned 70 before I graduated. Not sure if I kept him young, or made him prematurely old.
I started out with a White 30-2. It was a nightmare. electrical system was trashed, hydraulic lift was trashed, PTO clutch was trashed. I parked it on a hill and roll started it most times, then would let it warm up, take it back to the top of the hill, shut it off, engage the PTO, and roll start it again to brush hog around the place. Found some one with stupid tattooed on his forehead to buy it. (it was misspelled.) Now I have a Challenger. Newer version of the same problems. Guess I got that tattoo as well.
