It was fun to read about old tractors on another thread by some of you guys.

Which made me wonder, what is the oldest piece of equipment or tractor you have and then that you use.

Mine is a old tobacco setter used to set tobacco plants out. Use it now for planting garden. Must be 40 plus years old.

I have a little box trailer that is the back of a 1920's pickup, does that count. I use it quite often and it is about 80 years old now.

I have quite a few pieces of old iron that see regular duty. I have two old Deere tractors (1948 M and 1950 B), a '54 Allis combine, Deere 2-14 plow on steel wheels, a planter from the mid-70s, and a bunch of walk-behind garden tractors from the '50s.
To me the enjoyment of old farm equipment is the chance to get it out and use it. Not that I don't enjoy looking at immaculate resoration jobs too, but I would rather drool over old tractors that actually get out and work.

A 1944 Farmall M. Have obtained all the manuals for it including the War Tractor rubber tire warnings.

I was raised on Red tractors my first to drive was a H I could just barely push the clutch and brakes at the same time but that was a requirement to be able to drive it in the field while grown ups loads hay or shocks of oats or corn.

It gets used frequently for grunt work and a occasional Sunday afternoon ride (Saturday am really) around the country side. Photos on pic somewhere.

It is good to see the old being used to me too. The workmanship of some of the old equipment is just great. Don't think China workmanshp matches it.

Peters, bet you wish you had the rest of that pickup.

Do you still use your AC combine? Is that the model that the straw come out the side? We had an AC when I was a kid. I can't remember the model but yours sounds kind of familiar. I believe ours had a 5' cutter bar and had a canvass feed. Just was if it was the same as your?

Yes I wish I had the front half as it is not a common Ford or Chevy, but a Studebaker or something. I have the 60's MF 65 to pull it with. I have a set of Deere bottom plows from the 30's also.

In response to DK's question above, yes, the combine gets used every year to harvest my patch of wheat. I also take it to our local antique tractor show and demonstrate it there. It is an All-Crop 66 (66" sickle vs the earlier model's 60"Wink yeah right and does send the straw out the side like the one you are remembering. They were very popular in their day. At our show I get a lot of comments like "Yeah, when I was a kid my dad had one just like this . . ."

I've got two restored H Farmalls and a Cub Farmall that do a bit of parade duty, The oldest one I still use is a 1965 "656" Farmall. Frank.

I restored a '47 Farmall A and a '52 Super C. The SC is my plowing tractor in the spring, and sometimes use it for moving rocks and dirt with a box blade or carrying firewood and dragging logs; even brush hogged with it some last year. The A has no lift system (I ditched the exhaust lift set-up) so I use it to pull a trailer and occasional hauling firewood in a carryall.

My NH compact is still used for tilling, finish mowing, and running a 3ph backhoe.

Sometime in the future I plan to set up a belly mower for the A, maybe eventually get some turf tires for it.

The old tractors are fun. It really makes you appreciate live PTO and live hydraulics.

Good luck,
Bill
