:bigrofl:

 

 I thought I would inject a little humor here.  I know it is not a Garden Tractor but,  What is this thing?  I was told it is a 1921 FARKEL.  What do you think it is?

That's an interesting homemade tractor. The frame is a Farmall F20 or F30 but I'm not sure what brand the engine is.

Definitely some sort of "high crop" configuration. My guess is depression era high crop or wartime high crop.

Im thinking you guys are right, picture is too fuzzy for my poor eyes.

That's a SPOKER, was used in feilds with higher longer winds and allowed the wind to blow thru the tractor and not slow down the pace when sideways to it plowing and etc.  Was NOT very good Wet land tractor, mud got stuck into sinking wheels fast, thus sales never caught on!

You are all about right. It is a homemade tractor gone wild. Let me apologize for the fuzzy pic but it was taken with a cell phone while on a business trip. It has no name but FARKEL sounded good. It looks like it started as an F series, the rear hub, frame and steering. The front wheel has a group of coil springs as spokes which should give it a great ride.

Actually it is a lawn ornament at the Antique Shoppes at Kirbyville, in Fleetwood, PA. They have a few other old tractors too. Nice shop to walk through.

I promise I won't do this again.

Dave
