Looks great! The one I drove never used to smoke that much though . Is that a Degelman rock picker that got you stuck? They can be really heavy for a small tractor. Nice set of diskers too. Don't see a lot of them working anymore.

is that a rod weeder behind the 50D? Must be Canada. What tractor is pulling those two seeders or as somebody called them "diskers"?

Yes ,Id bet that is western Canada. Those Cockshutt 225 diskers were popular here in their day (60s and 70s) but one 12 footer would be about all you'd want to pull behind a 50. Dad pulled a Case 12 foot with his 50 gas and it was just fine, might have handled a 15 foot if the land was all flat and dry. Taking a wild guess, is it an 1800 or 1850 pulling the tandem setup of diskers?

Very nice looking 50D. How heavy is this tractor and are the tires filled with fluid. I now have my Dad's 50 gas (still all original) and can remember when he could pull the corn chopper and full wagon thru wet low spots that all the neighbors tractors couldn't do it. Those 18.4-34 rice lug tires had fluid and 1 set of wheel weights. Was the air cleaner (glass jar pre-cleaner) a stock item on the 50D?

Seems to me dad's 50 gas with full fluid in the rears weighed about 8500 pounds (single rear weights). I see yours has double. Also I see you have converted to a delco alternator from the old style generator. And the old style seat , must be an early 50. Mine has the newer "knoedler" seat with the spring and shock.

Mine is #1420 which I think is a 1953. It was actually sold as a 1956 model when my dad bought it in 1959. The hood had been painted yellow and it had the "deluxe" decals to make it look like the newer 50s but I am guessing it was originally all red. It came with disk brakes and the shiftable hydraulic gear.

At last years Cockshutt club banquet, one of the guys in the club was the keynote speaker. At his dealer they had an early E5 they couldn't sell, so after awhile they painted it red and made it a Cockshutt, still didn't sell. In '56 the Deluxe line came out, so they repainted it yet again. Guy came in and bought it on the spot. Same guy had looked at it before but didn't like it....

My serial chart is kind of screwy for 52 -54. But I think yours is a '52.
