If interested; get your family involved... Back in 1978, I bought a WD45 which I still have.. My oldest son was 1 1/2 years old at the time.. I will never forget that million dollar smile on his face when he sat on the seat of that old Allis.. This son borrowed my CA about a year and a half ago.. His sons like that tractor;; youngest grandson's favorite color is orange.
My second son is now 31 years old.. A few years back, he came back from Seattle with his girlfriend... First thing he asks is "Hi dad, the Allis ready to go"?? Seattle city gal experienced her first time driving a couple old farm tractors..
Years back, My young boys were out in the tractor shed on a Sunday afternoon, and were accompanied by their two year old sister.. I walked in with a cam-corder and captured anouther million dollar moment: my daughter was sitting inside the steering wheel of the CA and rocking herself back and forth..
Needless to say, the first thing to be removed on both tractors was the pull rod for the starter.. I installed a cable lug on the starter, and added a solenoid and key start to both tractors---for obvious reasons!! I never leave a loader or three point equipment raised either.
You can watch out for your own kids, but bear in mind that visiting kids can be drawn to farm tractors like a magnet!! bear this in mind with that pull rod for the starter.. Oh ya,, if your tractor has one of those hinged seats that flip over sideways,, that is the second thing to remove...
