This is the fourth Generation to park their fanny on this tractor. Great-Grandpa Park, Grandpa Dale, Dad (Alan) and now Ryan. Had to get at least one pic of him driving it.

Very nice Alan. It isn't too often a piece of machinery or equipment makes it through that many generations :thumbs:

Great to see, Alan. Too often, the equipment isn't around anymore. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice!  A true testament to how the family cares for the equipment.  You just can't beat memories on wheels.

We had a saw like that when I was growing up. Dad had a two-wheel GT to power it. Great memories!

It doesn't seem too much the worse for wear. How long since it was restored?
