Ryan was helping Grandpa some today. Doing some cultivating on the sweet corn patch.

The tractor is a 1946 MH101. 142 cubic inch, never had a thing done to it.
Not much to look at, but she sure is a worker.
The cultivator is raised and lowered by a mechanical system driven from the internal main shaft of the transmission. You can just see Ryan run the foot peddle towards the end of the video.

Stepping up to the big tractors is always an eye opener as to what a real tractor is versus the weakling GTs we all love lol.

He is doing very well. I was not much older than Ryan when I was logging a lot of hours on a Massey Harris 44.

Seems like his grandfather is giving Ryan a complete course in using Farm equipment. He does a great job :thumbs: and I also notice Ryan has grown a lot since the first time I saw him a couple of years ago.

Ya'll grow rocks up there too I see/hear!  Quiet tractor alright, and a goodie.  Heard of the mechanical lifts but I know nothing about them.   Ryan gets the ground nice & cultivated, then you bring your big clod-hopper feet behind & pack it all down again!  :rolling:

Those old Massey Harris's where one of the toughest tractors. I had a M-H 55 Wheat land model, never seen any other tractor as stout.

Although I don't know as much about the 101's as the 44's and 55's.

It seems like you can't ever go wrong with any old tractor.

That's a nice cultivator, I had one about like it on a Farmall H, It looks like yours does a great job! sure beats a hoe! lol

Thanks for the pictures and videos!
