We are now taking nominations for featured tractor of the month for April 2011. We don't have a theme for this month so anything goes.

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 10th 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!

If not enough start coming in, maybe we can nominate someone else's tractors, then let them fill in the paragraphs.

I nominate my 1966 Massey MF10
I got this tractor a while ago bought it unseen for parts, when I went to pick it up discovered some different features and after researching it found out that it was first year production for the MF10s, 12s. Decided that it was one to keep and fix up for myself. The more I got into it the more I found out about it. So it was tested to find out what was good and what wasn't. Then disassembled, cleaned, and fixed whatever I found wrong with it.
One part that was broken when I took it off was the steering wheel and to this day I still do not have a really good replacement one for it. Another part that I wanted for it was the aluminum nose ring that came on the early 66 models, that part I was able to find thanks to a fellow GTtalk member.
It was all painted and new decals put on and is now a good working tractor. I have an engine rebuild kit for it to be put in shortly, the engine runs OK just has a rod knock in it. Also I have 2 sets of narrow rear wheels for it, turfs and AGs. This tractor will probably get babied alot as it's the nicest one I have, but it is capable of doing what ever they could do when it was brand new.

Guys Feature tractor of the month is open to all members, new members and those who have being around for a while.
It's the story that makes the tractor so, NOMINATE your tractor and tell it's story, that's what it's all about here.
