Hey folks,
So, I made a deal with my wife that when our 1st born said "daddy" or any variation there of, that I was going to buy another tractor. My lil one is close to speaking that word, so I started looking. I'm not wanting anything too fancy, but I like the way the Ford 851's look. Just wanting something a bit smaller than my Deere to bush hog and till with. What are yall partial too? Post a pic if you have one!

What a great thread. I was going to start one a while back but didn't. I like your John deere. Do you show it? If you're looking for a smaller tractor I'd go for a Ford jubilee edition or a 8n. I love that tractor. They are rarer than hens teeth over here and always fetch good money if one comes up for sale.
I love the old tractors. I have a couple of my own. Here's a few pics.
This is my favourite. It's a 1960 fordson dexta. I use it for trailer rides, showing and ploughing matches.

This is my 1938 fordson standard N. Petrol paraffin. Full equipped with cranking handle! It can be a bit of a pain to start but runs sweet.

My fully original 1954 Ferguson TEF. It's got a bit of a electrical problem at the moment so it's on my to do list!

1962 fordson super major. We use this on the saw bench.

1964 Massey Fergus on 35x. This is a workhorse. It's used for mowing, ploughing, towing everything! A great tractor.

And this is my wife's! It's a 1949 Ferguson TEA. It was a barn find. Didn't work and was in very poor condition. I did a full refurb to her unique specification! Including the Cadbury purple wings, bonnet and wheels. Complete with tinkerbell graphics! Needless to say we do alot of shows with thus. It always draws a good crowd!

You could say I'm a bit of a collector. I also have a good range of ploughs, trailers and various implements! I hope you like the pictures.

Sounds like you have quite a nice array of tractors just sorry to say none of your pictures came through for me.
Edit to add. Now suddenly the pictures are showing. My crappy phone service.
