Did all H's come delivered with fenders? I just bought a '46 H without fenders and didn't know if that was an option. If not I need to start looking for a set. Thanks in advance
Greg

I was told by dad that ours had fenders but had to come off to put the cultivator on so went to the junk pile soon after bought. I've never saw a set on it. Our MD they came off as they were in the way to get on with them. That was over 40 years ago.

The fix for the problem of hard to get on with fenders was to put on the fender extension plates. These plates moved the fenders 6 or 8 inches closer to wheels. With the extension on we could put the cultivators on the "H" my dad had without removing them. Attached is a picture of my 450-D with the extensions. Al

The 41 H that Grandbo bought used in 49 and we traded off in 84 never had them taken off in all that time Dad and I had Deered and if tractor did not have fenders we found them for that tractor. Only time taken off was to put the mounted corn picker on. If later on the Farmall would not have hat those midiget fenders on would have found some Deere and modified to put on. I wanted the top of the tire covered. Years ago distant reletavie had WC and plowing, left wheel hit a bump and knocked him off seat and layed him across fender over spinning tire, if not for that fender he would have been pulled under the tire. I would not operate a tractor without fenders.

To my knowledge, if the H originally came with steel wheels, it also came with fenders. That is why they are found in barns etc...in all areas, not just in Wisconsin or Michigan. As others have said, they were optional on other versions with rubber tires except where the state laws required them.

Fenders were required by law here in Michigan, but many were taken off and left in a shed. Before reproductions were available serious collectors scanned all the old farm auctions looking for them. Our county fair requires all original safety equipment, including fenders, for the antique tractor pulls, which has resulted in a few arguments and disqualified tractors.

I have had more than one person tell me my Super H with fenders was the first one anyone in the area had ever seen. Dad always kept them on and they are still there today.

Optional equipment, we had an M and Super C bought new with fenders and another M from a farm auction a few years later with none. As long as I was around those tractors the fenders were very seldom on, they hung from the north west corner of the machine shed, they had to be taken off for most of the equipment that bolted on the tractors.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

That may explain why so many here have fenders.

As I understand(so I've been told),fenders(wheel gards/mud gards)were required by law in Michigan.However,they merely an option everywhere else.An option few took becacse of the extra cost.Today,there are several aftermarket scources.

My parents had a farm in Central Michigan, we had an "H" and a Phase 1 Super M, neither had fenders, the only thing we had with Fenders was a JD A. About 1/2 the tractors in our neighborhood were fender-less.

They were also required by law in Wisconsin too. Most "H" and "M" tractors in Wisconsin will have fenders. Even the 400s through the 560s will almost always have fenders. Al

In all the years I have been around tractor I have yet to ever see an H with fenders and the 4 I have do not have them. Many tractor from the 30s, 40s, and 50 did not have fenders unless they where ordered and that cost more $$ so many did not even have them

Fenders were an option, they can be found and there are reproduction fenders on the market.The reproduction fenders look identical but the edge is rolled a bit sharper than the originals, other than that, the mountings and braces are identical. I have a pair of H fenders in my shop that I cleaned up and painted, they look like new and I haven't gotten around to putting them on ..that was about 10 years ago. Both of my 1943 H's had fenders when I acquired them

Fenders were an extra cost option. Very, very few Hs came with fenders. I never even knew there was such a thing until I began attending tractor shows about 20 years ago.
