I drove this 930 back in the summer of 73 working for a neighbour. The summerfallow had got out of control and heavy weed growth was hanging on every shank. Made the old 930 work sometimes on that 22 foot Cockshutt cultivator but eventually had the field looking black. Great tractor. Wish I had bought it when I had the chance.

Great pic. Should have been on Case lit at the time.

Nice picture. You can see a long way off in the distance. Do you know where the tractor is today?

Another neighbour bought it at the auction sale about eleven years ago. Its not far away. It was a six speed with the foot clutch. Had about the tightest spring of any clutch I have ever driven. Would have been pretty hard on the knee joint if a person had to do much clutching. Another neighbour had the same tractor except with the hand clutch. He dualed it up with 18.4x34s. I think he had an axle break after that.

Always heard them foot clutches were stiffer than heck. Never have run a foot clutch. I have a 61 and 63? and both have hand clutches.

Nice picture. Would that be North Dakota?
The 2 tone Case color combination is so neat and the styling is nice, but I still like the older "long nose" 930s better.

No, right here in S.E. Sask. My favourite 930 is still the last of the line, the 8 speed western specials like this 69 that I had for a few years. (and still wish I had). The only change I would make would be to 38 inch rear rubber so that it sat up a little more level with those 10x16s on the front.

I think that tractor would look really mean with some wider tires on it. What is the MF implement you are pulling with it? I don't think we have any of those around here. What is the jug for where the left hand steps should be? Sorry about all my questions. Thanks

No , you likely don't see any Massey Ferguson diskers that far south. They are mostly all retired now but in 81 when I took that picture they were very popular . Basically a one way disk with seeding attachment and flexible gangs. Nowadays we have air seeders and drills but the highest yielding wheat I ever grew was planted with this Massey disker.
The tank on the tractor steps is water for the roof mounted cab cooler. It was better than nothing but no replacement for real air conditioning.

Rusty do you remember the brand of cab that was on your 930?

Nice pictures Rusty, the colours are sure vivid in the last one. Seems all we will be doing this spring is looking at pictures of seeding, eh? Friends of mine had a 1963 930 like your top picture except they had the hand clutch. They run it many years until a guy ran into it on the road and busted the rear wheel, axle and all, off.

Those 360 Massey diskers seem to have held their value better than the other three makes. They're very similar in a lot of ways to my green Co-ops that I still use.

Jim, you are so right. I still have that 360 Massey but only the top half of the box is visible over the snow it is buried in. They were a great seeding tool and I could still seed with mine if I had to.
That cab I put on the 930 was a "Cozy Cab". Not sure where they were made but they were about the best after market cab you could buy in 1980 . Nice fit, strong and good visibility. Well insulated for noise too. Doors both sides and sliding rear window. Man, I miss that tractor.
Here is the old Case disker that the Massey replaced. As you see it will be a while before I can hitch onto it and hit the fields. Rolling Eyes

Rusty, your post of the "930" only brought back memories of the one we had just like it, she was a tough old workhorse, penny pinching on fuel, she was replaced one day by the "1030" I have now. Thanks for posting this.

S. E. Sask lokks pretty much like where I grew up in Towner County ND and it's not that far from SE Sask. Are there lots of those old Cases still around?
