|Can I move it?|
Gosh, probably about 5 years ago I first founf my Grandpa's old tractor. I started going over to my Grandma and Grandpa Young's house and spending time over there when I had my tonsils out. I started spending the night, and being a very curious approximatley 13 year old boy (I'm 18 now), I started exploring all of their stuff. That included the pole barn. My Mom and Grandma were in the house, and I thought I'd sweep the pole barn. That's when I saw the tractor. No idea what kind at the time, I just knew I wanted to drive it! I went in and asked if I could move it to sweep under it (Yes, I am so good at finding reason's to drive anything on wheels!) They said yes, although not too sure by their tone of voice. Anyways, the tractor had a dead battery. I wasn't going to let that stop me! I found jumpercables, and went to hook up the graden tractor to the big one. Then realized it had a positive ground. That was a shock. I didn't know at the time it's a 6-volt tractor, but that's okay. A 12-volt can jump a 6-volt if you make it quick. Don't let it sit. I figured out how to start it, and she fired up, so I unhooked the cables, and got back on the tractor, which is blue with grey fenders. I moved the tractor outside, and didn't stop there. We went down the driveway, then started grating it with the backblade, and from there I have progressed to where I am today, a devoted tractor lover. My tractor is a 1953 Ford Golden Jubilee, the anniverseray model. It's supposed to be red and grey, so she's a little ugly, but she is a darn fine running tractor, barn kept. I just used it tonight to plow some snow off my Grandma's drive. The tractor has a Sherman high low medium trans, and I love everything about the tractor!
