Picture perfect

Post  Cribbs74 on Mon Mar 30, 2015 11:59 pm

I finally got my tractor up and running, spent the day leveling the ground out back. It was too much fun be considered work.

Couldn't resist snapping a picture of the old work horse and the pickup as the sun was going down.

Hey Ron, is that a Ford 2N or Ferguson?  We didn't see the American Fords much out here much but you can't drive more than a couple of miles in the clountry without seeing an old "Grey Fergie".  I have a TEA20 myself which I use for tractor trek road runs in my club.  She doesn't look quite as neat as yours but I have the paint, so just need to take the time.  
Hang on, I need to finish building my Cadet first, or maybe get my old restored Corolla on the road, or build that new shed I promised myself.
Too much stuff, too little time. lol!

Rod,

It's a 1949 8N, I am new to tractors and this one was given to me by my FIL. It doesn't do anything really well, but for what I need it for it's just fine. I pulled about 16 4x4 fence post out of the ground the other day. Only broke a couple.

Over here the 8N is the most common tractor around. They were built pretty stout and many are still in use.

I think your Fergie is a fine looking tractor and comparable to the 8N in many ways.

Ron
That is a great project. Doesn't grease and grime up to your elbows and on your face feel good when you hit that starter switch and feel the rumble through the seat. Holding the steering wheel and grinning. You get to feel your inner child for a moment.
Good work.
Rusty

P.S: Eric hahahaha a pig instead of the 140. You are too cool.
