This old D17 belonged to my wifes grandfather and I use to use it when I was a teenager working for him pulling a manure spreader. This old tractor has mowed and baled alot of hay. Hauled round bales out to the cows. plowed and disked the gardens and is still going strong.

This is a pic of my son pulling an offset disc across our cloddy garden this spring.

I have one as well we use it on the horse farm. We are having hydraulic problems. My daughter ran it dry. I filled both the trans and the breather just to the left and up front a bit. Started it and no pressure. Check the spin off filter no oil. Took off the sump plate and no oil. Is there a secert to filling the sump. I have tested the pump by inserting the suction side into a cobtainer of oil and suction was good. How do you fill up the sump on this unit?

How big a offset disc do you pull and does it work any better for primary tillage than a regular tandem disc.

The offset disc is somewhere in the neighborhood of 8 feet. I don"t know that it works any better than a regular disc, but it was the only one that had a cylinder on it and the tires weren"t flat! (I know, I"m lazy). The offset disc works good in ground that hasn"t been plowed, but in plowed ground I would probably prefer a regular tandem disc.

It's a series IV. It's been a good old tractor and still is.

Wish I had it. I can still remember when my cousin(20 years my senior) bought a brand new series IV. At the time it displaced the JD 2510 as the biggest tractor in the farm.

Today's Featured Article - Madison's County - by Anthony West. Philip Madison has been a good friend of mine for quite some time. He has patiently suffered my incessant chit chat on the subject of tractors for longer than I care to remember, and on many occasions he has put himself out, dropped what ever it was he was doing, to come and lend a hand cranking handles, or loading a find onto a trailer. Although he himself has never actually owned or restored a tractor, he was always enthusiastic and always around helping with other peoples projects. ... [Read Article]
