Ok, since it's oneof, here's mine. I think in the end it wasn't really a difficult decision. Mine is the 830 com eh like the one my dad had. It was the first tractor I drove and along with our ford jubilee what I learned to drive on for several years before I was big enough and strong enough to push the clutch on the other tractors. I can remember my dad putting me on it to steer and move it pulling the rock wagon while my older brothers and sisters were picking rocks. I don't know how old I was, maybe 4 or 5 years old or so because I was to young to shift it. My dad would just put it in 6th gear when the wagon was empty so all I had to do was push the gas to move it, then as the wagon got fuller he would come over and shift it down to 4th. I remember in 5th grade I stayed home from school to plow with it and when I got back to school the next day the teachers didn't believe me and made me sit in the office til they got ahold of my mom to confirm it. lol. In spring time that took til she came in the house to make lunch. I also spent many days driving it in front of the 200 case baler while dad stacked the bales on the wagon and following it around the field driving our Jubilee pulling wagons so dad could dump on the go from the 77 combine he had.
This pic is one that my son that is in the picture and I restored. He did most of the work on that one, at least as far as the clean up went. I don't own it anymore, and it broke my heart when I had to sell it, but will some day get another to replace it.
