For this month since winter is basically here, the tractor you nominate must be in it's winter attire. Whether it be a snow blade or snow blower or some home built contraption.

I also can't emphasize enough to please provide at least 2 paragraphs for the description of you tractor. Your tractor is going to be featured on the front page of GTtalk, this is your chance to shine and let everyone know about your tractor.


Here are the rules:

  • Tractor being nominated must not have been a featured in the last 12 months.
  • Please give at least a two paragraph description to tell us about your tractor.
  • You need 2 photos attached to your post as attachments, not linked from another site, the year make and model, and a brief description of your history with the tractor and what you use it for most.

We will accept up to 10 nominations, this thread will be closed after the 5th nomination. Once 10 nominations are made we will start a new thread for the voting. Voting will run to the end of the current month and on the 1st of the following month the winner will be featured on the GTtalk Home Page and in our Featured Tractors section.

Rules subject to change to better work for everyone. Good luck!

We have upped the ante to 10 nominations for this one!

All I'm using now for snow removal is my Ford 6640 4x4 with cab and loader.I have about 15 driveways I do,and since I have it out to do them,I do my own with it too.

Ok, i guess i'll put up my 73 MF12G. I bought this tractor about 2 years ago, the 4 of October '08 i believe. It came with no front tires, and the front axle removed. It was part of the deal with a running MF10, which no longer runs... Anyway, it was a "parts unit", so i had nothing to lose foolin with it. With a fuel tank borrowed from the 10, and a rag for an air cleaner, i got it running. But the starter was not working, so my grampa rebuild the failing starter. After that, i put on a set of tires that fit the spindles until i could bought a set of OE massey wheels on eBay.

After that it was just my tractor for haulin loads, and stuff. When i bought a tractor in CT with a massey plow, i put it on this for the winter (last winter) with just wheel weights and stock turfs. It spun alot, but did pretty well goin down hill. But the blade was beat all to heck, so i side lined it for this winter. Instead, i built a bracket that pins the the rear lift brackets that i made for it, and ran a bar up under the tractor to a 48" craftsman blade with an extra trip spring. It only has a manual angle for this year, but should work just fine. Also new this winter is a set of tire chains. Thats most of the story, but i know theres alot more. Now for the pics-not the best being from my phone but i'll have better ones in a day or two.

Here's my 1976 Mf 1655 all dressed and ready for snow this year.Its got a newly widened snapper snowblower that used to be 38" wide but nows 48" wide.I made this winter cab 15 yrs ago for a MF 10 but after getting the MF 1655 in 2000 I modified it to fit onto the 1655.After a couple years using it without heat I installed a fan/blower with piping that draws hot air from just under the muffler.Due to having put a loader onto this tractor I wasn't able to use the heater untill now as I just finished making it fit & work again.The thing about this cab is that it was made to fit the tractor before I had the loader so when we used it with the loader on for winter use we couldn't use the cab.This tractor is a work horse around here.Summer's is grass cutting,digging stones ,loader work,garden work.It's used year round by myself,my grandson as well as my wife.This tractor is always kept in top working condition.Larry
