Well, for me anyway!  Picked this up today 3 hours from home:

Only trouble is, it's not mine!  Saturday, a local farmer came to my house wanting to know if I had an MT, which  I didn't!  I had grown up on one years ago, so I knew some about them.  He wanted to buy one, so I checked CL for him, found this one in very good condition. when I called the buyer about it, he told me he didn't have a trailer the right size, so I offered mine.  We went after it today.  ~~  Lowell

Nice on Lowell, even has the rear wheel weights which is a big plus. One question though, is there something wrong with the steering wheel and shaft? My Dad has a '51 MT and his steering doesn't come that far out from the dash panel. Are they adjustable, and I just don't know about it?

That's a nice looking MT!  They are good tractors with plenty of power for their size.  I have a 1948 M and a 1951 MT with a sickle mower that I think very highly of, but I am trying to find a good home for.  The pictures are on my website.  If someone knows somebody needing one, throw a shout my way!

 

I came from Farmall red to John Deere green (a huge skip in the ag tractor world) and came away deciding two cylinders didn't sound bad!  I can't believe I'm admitting that...

They are adjustable, there's a nut that you spin to loosen it up in or out.  I like both of my M's all the in, though, otherwise they make getting on and off even a bigger challenge than it is!

Thanks Ben, I didn't know that, and I'm willing to bet Dad doesn't know it either. Always learning!

That's one of the nicest looking Mt's I've seen in a long time.
