I remember going to my grandfather's and in the garage were the gt were kept there was a strange tractor there , a 3 wheel one , behind it was shelves he made of angle iron that he kept the attachments that I had no idea what they would be used for  .Because we went there on holidays and Sundays and you NEVER worked on Sundays other then cutting grass , I don't remember it ever being used . When he pasted away  I asked my grandmother if I could buy it from her ,,, she gave it to me .   My grandfather  Tri-Trac.

Don't know if this counts,,, but as a child,,about 6-8 yrs. old we had a ride-o-matic.. Dad made a sulkie and I rode a track around the house and yard...


  Also remember as kids,, a friends dad had an old deere..  It had the flywheel to start it.. when his dad wasn't home we would get it started and drive in the feilds...

First photo is the unstyled AC WC that was owned by my Grandpa.  He owned the local garage for over fifty years.  He got it with a hole in the block and I'm sure it was given to him or he traded some work for it.  He gave it to me and my younger brother.  Through the years my nephew got it and restored it.  Yes it runs great and has the original patch and the nephew has pulled that 2 bottom plow with it.  That's my Dad on it.


This MF 1650 my Dad owned and loved.  I have the Tote Scoop on my 1650 and use it to this day.  It's very special to me.


Lastly, this is my girls on their first tractor.  They are 31 and 27 now.  Incidentally this was is at my neighbors house as I sold it to him so his girl could grow up on it.  I bought it from his Dad who ran an AC dealership for years.

There are several tractors I spent a lot of my childhood on.
The TO35 Ferguson
The MF165 Massey Ferguson
Are the two big ones, but the GT's that I remember most are:
Custom 6 that my parents bought new. Still have it, but needs lots of work
The MF8e that Dad got and let me use for several years. It was sold a long time ago.
The GT18 that they bought to replace the 25 yr old Custom6. It was the worst of the worst. Managed to upload that albatross after wrenching on it for a decade.

This is a tough one for me because I remember them all and still own a few.  Grandpa's Farmall BN (brother has it) the Bantam that I learned to mow on.  Wish I still had it.


The Pond, dad's first tractor that I still own today

The Satoh, the tractor that dad traded the Pond for.  I own this one too.



I think I remember every tractor that has been in my family since I've been alive.  Fond memories on all of them.


:thumbs:  Farmall BN looks so great in the picture! I wish I could just ride it for few mins. I would like to have it in my garage.

The best: a mid-thirties Minneapolis ZTU.  Real stump puller. Hand start, very reliable, a sweet runner.

The worst: an Economy Jim Dandy.  don't know why I bought it in the first place....it looked so cute.....

my neighbor really wanted it and I couldn't wait to get rid of it....
