Just thought it might be fun to hear some thoughts on a trade....53 Super H for a 53 Super M. Neither have live hydraulics nor power steering. The SH has recently had the belly pump and belt pulleys gone thru with new bearings/seals/gaskets as well as seal/gasket for pto. New belts, hoses and water pump as well and rebuilt carb. Very good sheet metal and some goodies like light bar tool box, fenders, pto shield and belt pulley. It is an original 6 volt that starts like a champ.'Runs solid and no leaks at all. Good rubber all around. One hyd. remote on back end.

The SM has good sheet metal as well with a tool box mounted above the pto shield. It doesn't have the goodies the SH has. Belly pump hasn't been used for a number of years and unknown operability. Leaks some oil around the valve cover and has a small radiator leak. It has been converted to 12v. Runs solid and starts easily. Does have a bit of wobble in the front end when running in higher gears on the road. Good rubber all around. One hyd. remote on back end.

With the above information on each, what are your thoughts on a trade between the two? Thanks!

The H has 300 dollar advantage over the M due to the service and extras. But (and it is a big but) what do you need. If you need a 3 plow tractor, then the SM is a good choice. with a bit of money and time it would be a worker. If you need a 2 plow tractor the SH. But which do you own??? Jim

I have the SH. I will use it to do some mowing with a brush hog, pulling a hay wagon and maybe a few odds and ends. I have a 2 bottom Little Genius which either can use. With the recent work to it, it is mechanically sound and doesn't leak a drop of fluid anywhere. With the SM, I know I would have more horsepower, but very likely needs a new radiator and it's not known if the belly pump works. I might get the trade along with $500 for my SH.

A radiator alone can cost that 500. Jim

Yes indeed, I like the idea of the possible upgrade from the SH to the SM, but I'll have more money into it before it is mechanically as solid as the SH is, even more so if the belly pump is found to have issues.

I would keep the SH, the SM will seem clumsy compared to the SH and you know what you have with the SH. Or better yet buy the SM and keep the SH, can never have to many!

DO the brakes work well on both? The disks also are pricy. Help is available for death wobble. But it can also be costly if the bolster shaft bushings are bad. Jim

That is true, but I don't have room for another and already have my Grandpa's 45 B I have to get running!

wide fronts or narrow fronts? all depends on what your use is for a tractor. just putzing around the yard the H would do it plus save gas. myself i like the bigger models. and both of these are a pain to get on and off. i would take my w4's and w6' before these. just me though. for someone to not have driven the standard models would sure change your mind to try them out, way handier.

Neither will be used for any major work. Both are narrow front tractors.

I would keep the H, you know what you have, & it's better on fuel too. Grew up on my uncle's farm with Farmalls, no Supers, 3 H's & a M, M always seemed to be more of a bear to drive, no power steering back then, just my 2 cents worth !

Only Super H I might want over a Super M is a Stage II Super H. Just a neat tractor with the newer style front bolster.

If we knew a little bit more about your farm operations we could be more helpful. I just love the M Farmalls. If you are mostly going to parades the H will bring just as much attention as the M. H is great for raking hay on a small farm and can be easily adapted to a 3 point hitch. Plowing and heavier bush hogging go with the M. Front end wobble, not a particularly difficult job and YT sells the kits. Lots of repair videos on you tube. Belly pump for the M is also fairly easy to fix and spacers are available. How good you are at fixing stuff and how much you enjoy working on old tractors is a factor. let us know what you do. Ellis
