    My tractor was delivered today. I dug it out of the shed it was stored in a couple of weeks ago and left it in the hands of the delivery company. The drivers called yesterday and said they would be here midday. The one thing I didn't expect was for it to be on the front of the truck. I was also susprised at my emotional reaction when it arrived. I started driving this tractor as soon as I was big enough to hang onto the steering wheel with both hands and push in the clutch with my foot. I quite literally grew up on this tractor. I probably spent more time on it than any other activity of my youth. Pull into even a 40 acre piece with 2 14" plows and see how long it takes to turn it under. When it was pulled up in front on the truck today, it was like the arrival of an old and trusted friend. This tractor, at the time it was new(1936) was just a step up from, and a supplement to horse and mule teams, which we also farmed with.

    I have rode on an little Allis Chalmer and old John Deere so many times with my grandad. I rode on the side while he was plowing. Man he was a wild driver- I had to hold on for dear life!! I've rode on a slide pulled by horses and ponies too. Been bounced off a few times too!! That's how he broke horses. He hooked to a slide and made them pull it all day!! At the end of the day he would unhook it from the slide and tell us to get up on it. Poor horse was so exhausted couldn't buck or anything!! Glad you got your little tractor back!!

    JD's are awesome! My dad has one like that, along with many others. He also has an International and a couple Cub Cadets.
    I have a 750 Utility Tractor with a Bucket, it is extremely handy. I also have a 5ft Bush Hog and a Box Blade for it.

    That is sooo cool. The elderly man up the street plows his field every year with a very old looking tractor. It's just so neat watching him.
