I found an old McCormick Deering 10/20 that I am probably
going to buy. Its been sitting in the field a long time but the
wheels aren't buried. Is there anything I should know about
trying to get it on to a trailer? I assume trying to get it into
neutral, but advice other than that would be appreciated. I
don't want to damage any components due to my ignorance.

Thanks, I just want to be sure I don't do any damage by being to anxious. I want to approach this cautiously. Recently I caused some damage to my hit and miss engine just because I was rushing and didn't check everything like I should have. By the way this one has steel wheels all around so I don't do have to worry about good rubber.

Neutral and block the clutch pedal down. When you first start moving it make sure the motor isn't spinning (indicating that the clutch is stuck and/or its stuck in gear). Once you know that its rolling without turning everything over just drag it up onto the trailer.

You say the wheels are not buried, but if that tractor has been setting in a field for even just a few years, you can bet the wheels ARE buried, so bring a spade with you and dig some trenches either in front of the wheels, or behind the wheels, whichever direction is appropriate, so the wheels can ROLL up and out of the dirt. Just hooking a chain onto the tractor and trying to jerk it up out of the ground is sure to cause damage to the tractor.

Winch from the tractor's drawbar if you can.

Really, I don't think you'll be pulling THAT hard, that you're going to cause damage even if you have to roll it up out of some minor holes, but the drawbar and the drawbar attach point are meant to handle the most pull out of anywhere on the tractor...

Why not load itwith a front end loader ?
A steel wheel tractor will tear up your trailer deck if the cleats are still on the wheels.
If you don"t have enough oil in the differential
or if it is got a lot of water you will damage the gears.
Load and unload it by lifting it.
