Me and the Old Farmall

When I was a boy in the early 60s my uncle would cut locust trees to be trimmed, sold, and used as props in the coal mines. He would cut the trees down and to length (7' or 9') and pile them during the Winter. I'd stay with him during part of the Summer when school was out to help him haul them. We would use his oldest tractor, a Farmall 20, I believe. Steel wheels and dual hand brakes. I finall earned the right to drive the old tractor and pull bundles of props out of the woods with a logging chain wrapped around each pile. Things usually worked well with the old girl. Sometime she didn:t want to start easily, especially if it had been raining. It took a lot of cranking sometimes. Those steel wheels really worked well in the woods. One time I was driving slong a road in the woods with my uncle standing on the drawbar when I crossed a narrow washed-out spot. I wasn't holding tightly enough to the wheel and the narrow front spinned 90 degrees to the right. We quickly made a bee line to a drop-off on that side of the trail. My uncle quickly grabbed one of the handbrakes, unfortunately the one on the right. I had grabbed the one on the left, but his pull was stronger so we nearly ended up over the hill. We got the Farmall M and pulled it back up onto the road without any damage, to the tractor or ourselves. Whew! That was a close one. I can still see his face as if it was yesterday. That wasn't the only close call. I'll write more later.

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]
