I saw this CA for sale, the owner has an old shredder on it, (three point), it has an adjustable front end and spin out hubs. The seller wants $1100. for it but one of the brakes is way out of adjustment, may need alot of work, the steering box has good bit of play, but other wise it looks okay. Do they pull pretty good and work okay? He says it is pretty loaded to pull the 5 foot mower.

I think the CA is best tractor of its size ever made. It is powerful for its size; 26pto hp and weighs approx 2500pounds. I just bought a CA this summer and gave is a new paint job. I took it to 2 tractor pulls this summer. The first pull I went to I did poorly because I had to be in too high of a class. I had the rear tires loaded and with me on it it weighed 3080. There was a 2750 class and a 3750. Then i put weight on it and it weighed 3350. I ended up getting about last pulling against striped down super Hs. The next pull I went to I took the fluid out and with me on weighed 2650 so I could pull in the 2750 class. I got 2nd place losing to an Allis B that weighed about 100pounds more because it had some kind of homemade frame on it. CA are realy nice looking tractors. If it is a wide front I wouldn't worry so much about steering play, but a loose narrow front will wobble going down the road in high gear. One thing to look is the transmission. Make sure it doesn't jump out of gear. If it does, it will either be a nuisance while driving it or expensive to fix. Test the gears by driving down a steep hill. Another great feature of the CA is its hand clucth which gave it live power. Also depending on what kind of implements you plan to hook to it look to see if it has snapcoupler. The CA came out in 1950 and didn't receive snapcoupler till 1954, although earlier models may have been converted. If it does not have snap coupler it should be fairly simple to convert it. Pretty much all you have to do is find the parts( probably a parts tractor or something) and bolt them on.

Many of you here won’t recognize my ID because I’ve been hanging around the JD board but I’m another JD guy that says “Buy It” ! When I was in high school I worked around a farm that had a 7060 and a CA. The CA was fitted with a 5 or 6-foot belly mower and was used to mow the yards and fence rows, etc. It always did a good job and was easy to handle. The only fault I ever noticed was a certain lack of power when cutting the grass in waterways that was 16” tall…with a finish mower! Of course this is something that it was not designed to cope with in the first place! Overall the CA is a neat little machine and would look good parked near a Deere any day!

A 5 ft. brushog is all a CA wants. It will get light in the front end when the tool is in the raised position. The CA is very strong for its size. The engine is very solid and reliable. It will pull 2-14 plows easily in most soil types. As far as I am concerned it is best small tractor you can buy. It not only is very functional but is nice looking.

I second what WEL said. Go for it, orange goes well with green.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
