THanks for the explanation about the amount of acreage a TO-20 will handle. I've been over 20 years trying to get any kind of an answer out of anyone about it. THe reason i asked is because everyone around here wants a modern 4wd diesel claiming how much better and fasterthey are than any of the old gasoline tractors. But i see so many of the diesels setting around neearly abandoned because of engine problems. OR they get used very little.

I'm in the middle Tennessee area. The terrain here is so craggie and ground so poor there are very few people tht actually farm in away any larger than a 1/4 acre garden, maybe 50 acres max of hay or corn. My To20 is often kind of scoffed at by those that have more modern diesels. I have 9 acres here in the WHiskey Hell community. Small fruit orchard (if i dare to call it an orchard) and 3 acres of it to mow and about 1 acre to bush hog once a year. The TO20 handles it just fine. I can knock out 3 acres of grooming mowing in about 45 minutes if i get aggressive, 1 hour to do a better job.

I recently bought a TE20 (with the cracked block) that ii plan to use for futurure crop cultivation or would like to. With the price of food going up i will probably have to grow my own. IT's a little scary to me. I can't even get a tomatoe plant to grow in a clay pot. The orchard literaly came up on it's own. I didn't even know they were fruit trees until i happened to pass under one one day and saw the big brite red cherries and later on on a persimmon fell on the hood of my car.

I"m in east tn time somebody scoffs at your tractor tell them it"s been running and working for 60 they think their newer shiny plastic diesels will be around in 60 years? I"ve got 4 tractors..a 1940 John Deere model A.. a 1954 farmall super TO20 and my MF175. I use the ferguson and the Massey..the other two just sit. I am looking for one more tractor and it will either be a MF 35 with a Perkins diesel..a 135 diesel.. or possibly a MF 50 diesel. Something else to think about is which do you think more people would stop and look at? A new kubota or etc...working or an old ferguson working? People look at me going out the road all the time cause I"m out there raking hay with an old ferguson set up and not a new v rake. I think for a lot of people it brings back memories for them.
