Thanks, looking forward to them.

One of my daughter's friends is here, his parents have a horse farm in town, they have an 8N, but it's not for sale, something about needing it to pull the manure spreader or something like that...

Very Very nice, Dallas. Take good care of her.

I see you have an alternator on her---I guess it's been converted to 12V?

It was 12v when I got it. It had the generator, but the regulator went bad ... I think. So, I put the 1 wire alternator on it. Just this year, I replaced the cartridge oil filter with a spin on. I've kept the old parts for the next owner.

I re-did it, when I bought it, but I "use" it, so it could use a little refreshing.

Nice of you to save the other parts. Most of them have been converted to 12V.

It looks fine to me, I can appreciate the work that goes into creating a "show piece" but these tractors were meant to be used, you can still keep it looking nice and use it!

What is a "variant"? I have seen Fergusen tractors that look very much like 8N's, is it one of those?


It's a Ford 600, similar to the NAA I think. 3 point hitch with the plow leveler. No power steering :( What I don't like about it is that it doesn't get very good traction. It's too easy to get it stuck in the mud and it has good tires on it with wheel weights. The internationals seem to get better traction, maybe they are heavier I don't know. The loader on this thing will lift 2000 pounds easy, it's overbuilt for sure. Here's a picture, I don't have any of just the tractor I usually like to take pictures of the vegetables and the kids get in the way :D

Agreed.

Actually I was looking for a Hoyt-Clagwell, but they are hard to find. I've only ever seen one.

w00t old tractor thread! How in the hell did I miss this one?


58 Ford 800

My dad had this when I was born. I remember him breaking it in half and restoring it when I was about 5. That was 30 years ago. Needs to be restored again!

That can be a winter project if I find time.

I use it to brush hog about an acre field behind my house and to plow snow. I have a 5 foot rototiller, Harrow, Disc Plow, cultivator, back blade, 6 foot brush hog here in PA. I still have two New Holland Balers, Rake, Fluffer?, four row planter and sickle bar mower down in Georgia. Unles my sister sold them on me! B$%@H
The stuff I left down south is pretty much Junk anyway.

You guys all have alot of Iron!!!! I'm almost ashamed to post on this one. My best tractor is a New Holland 2120 mini- escavator. I take the hard mounted backhoe off and throw a couple lift arms off to pull the plows and disks. 45 horse 4 x 4 with shuttle shift. By far the favorite is the 1956 Oliver super 55. I use it as much as possible to plant a couple acres of sweet corn, a couple acres of pumpkins, acouple acres of everything else, but mostly have either a bushhog or a 6' woods finish mower behind it shaving the backyard. It is amazin' that an old piece of iron can be that relaxing to drive.It is getting to be time to do a little reconditioning. I traded a good running 8n even up for it. A steal!! :) Scott

I have two Cub Cadets. A hydrostatic 127 from 1969 with a 42" deck and a 104 from 1968 with a 42" deck. The 104 has calcium filled dual tires (each tire weights @ 50 lbs) with chains used year round. I have 3 acres of hills to mow and the 104 will never roll over. I have to hold onto the rear fender to stay on the edge of the seat while mowing. I'm the second owner on both mowers and I acquired them when I bought my old house 15 years ago. They both have original Kohler engines; the 104 has never been rebuilt, the 127 had it's head replaced this year because I cracked it sucking up leaves last fall. I have a snow plow for the 104 and I use it to clear off a private road shared by 5 homes. All parts are still available from the Cadet dealer or ebay!
