Its Mine Now

Seeing the story about the MM-R made me think back to my growing up on a farm in Priddy, Tx. Mills Co. My dad and I, along with my grandfather, farmed several farms in the area, including my grand father's place at Indian Gap, Tx. (250 acres of Pecan bottom on the Cowhouse Creek). Our farm also had the creek running through it. One winter the creek froze over, I thought it was thick enough to hold the tractor. NOT! I dropped the R right in the middle of the crossing, my dad had to bring the 'Massey' down to drag it out. I thought that was the end of it until my father went to start the tractor, not knowing the clutch had siezed due to the water, and the R nose could be seen from the outside of the shed, thru the front wall. (Oh, my goodness). I remember many hours on that tractor and relish all the memories of my childhood on that farm. Even when my dad came home from the field with one pants leg of his overalls missing due to the PTO. A safety lesson, no doubt. My grandfather said he remembered one of his brothers doing the same thing, he did have on stretchy suspender overalls and the PTO wrapped up his pants leg so tight that it shot him off the tractor when it finally tore. My grandfather had a JD-G and rode that thing till he was allmost 90 years old. He had a new gas-saving carb. put on it and it worked so well that he had to stop and drain the tank several times a day. I now have the R (bought it back) and a Farmall A like the one with which we used to dig potatos and pump water water out of the creek. I remember those times well.

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
