I just gotta get this forum going tonight. My first adventure solo was on a 37 L with a 16' springtooth harrow in 1955, at age 8.

First case was an 830 diesel, com, eagle hitch. Drove it pulling the rock wagon while the older brothers and sisters and dad picked. Don't know how old I was, but I couldn't reach the clutch and shift at the same time so dad or one of my brothers would do it. First tractor I drove alone was a ford jubilee pulling wagons and following my dad around the field while he combined with the 830 and 77 combine. I also raked hay that year. The same year I started driving the 830 pulling the 200 baler while dad stacked on the wagon. I was 7 or 8 that year, so that would have been 68 or 69.

I was 12 and it was a 1929 L. Dad had put a faster steering gear on it when he put it on rubber . It would cramp on the turns and it took a man to straighten it. On the first turn it cramped and I just went round and around. Oh yea I was pulling a 12" JD rod weeder. Dad had to run up a 1/2 mi to get on and straignten it out. I had to wait a year until I was 13 when he bought a new 1948 LA. I than worked all day long.

SC, and I don't know how old I was. I know I wasn't big enough to pull the clutch back, so I drove it with my foot up against the clutch lever.
I know I mowed raked and loose stacked all of the alfalfa, when I was in the second grade. Probably worked harder when I was under 15 then I do now.

Would have been a 970 gas with cab that we baled with, was 93. Was 21, when dad and my uncle rowcropped they run Allis. Can still recall many days and nights on a D17 working ground. Dad said they had used about every brand in the early years farming. Scott

Jimmie,
I turned too short with the L and the rear tire hooked the outside cable of the evener draw bar up over It and bent the fender. OOPS. The clutch lever was backwards on the L so when I pulled back on the lever, it lurched and I could snap it over center. It was pretty easy to disingage. All I had to do was put both hands on the steering wheel and put my foot against the lever and give it a kick.

Nine or ten, feeding cattle with a 1951 LA and a homemade wagon.
First time in the field was in June 1961 with the LA and a 12 foot Graham Hoeme. Age 13)
Loren, we must be about the same age.

5 or 6 baling with a 770, wasn't strong enough to push in the clutch, but my uncle would get her moving and point me in the right direction, then He would hop on the wagon. All I had to do was keep the tire beside the windrow.

A 1030 at 26 year's old, yes that's right. Dad was an IH man and that was the first Case tractor I bought for myself. It was used with 750 hrs. Super nice tractor.
