Very nice looking 50D. How heavy is this tractor and are the tires filled with fluid. I now have my Dad's 50 gas (still all original) and can remember when he could pull the corn chopper and full wagon thru wet low spots that all the neighbors tractors couldn't do it. Those 18.4-34 rice lug tires had fluid and 1 set of wheel weights. Was the air cleaner (glass jar pre-cleaner) a stock item on the 50D?

Seems to me dad's 50 gas with full fluid in the rears weighed about 8500 pounds (single rear weights). I see yours has double. Also I see you have converted to a delco alternator from the old style generator. And the old style seat , must be an early 50. Mine has the newer "knoedler" seat with the spring and shock.

Mine is #1420 which I think is a 1953. It was actually sold as a 1956 model when my dad bought it in 1959. The hood had been painted yellow and it had the "deluxe" decals to make it look like the newer 50s but I am guessing it was originally all red. It came with disk brakes and the shiftable hydraulic gear.

At last years Cockshutt club banquet, one of the guys in the club was the keynote speaker. At his dealer they had an early E5 they couldn't sell, so after awhile they painted it red and made it a Cockshutt, still didn't sell. In '56 the Deluxe line came out, so they repainted it yet again. Guy came in and bought it on the spot. Same guy had looked at it before but didn't like it....

My serial chart is kind of screwy for 52 -54. But I think yours is a '52.

I have the book "Cockshutt The Complete Story" and it has a serial number chart that also indicates my 50 is a 1952 model. The 50 was premiered in October of 52 with production beginning in December of 52. There is a serial number chart for all models online at

I found a chart somewhere on the net that indicated my number would be a 1953 but who knows. Mine was unique in that the "deluxe" decals had a typo on the one side and it actually read "deuxe" 50. I wonder if there were many like that produced? I don't think I have any pictures of it and not sure if it is still visible after several brush on paint jobs over the years.
