: I have a chance to get a 1938 ZTU free. The only thing is, I'm basically IH and don't know a thing about M-M's. It is said to be in good shape but don't know if motor is stuck or not. Any advice/comments/suggestions from M-M folks is appreciated. Thanks
You wont like it, give it to me instead... ha ha
I have both Minnies and Farmalls and there is room for both in a collection.I learned to drive on a 38 ZTU at age 5. They are an easy handling tractor, very slow in reverse-great for
backing wagons. Hand clutch works much better than on a JD. Fewer moving engine parts
than most other tractors. If it came with rubber tires it will be very fast in road gear.
