Anyone familiar with the VAO 15. I have looked at one and really can not see much difference between it and a VAC 14. The front axle is adjustable but the spindles appear to be shorter. The rear axles are shorter also. Otherwise I did not see any changes. The platforms are the same as are the gear shift and steering column. Just wanted to be sure that it was correct. The parts book does not show the front axle as ever being adjustable. Thanks for any help.

We have a VAO-15 that was bought new by my father-in-law in 1956, one of the last VA's made.

It is a straddle mount and has a adjustable front axle (round tube). Exhaust is underneath and it has an eagle hitch. We have the original Case 2-14 plow, disk, sickle bar mower, and rear trip bucket that was bought with it. I guess you could call the VAO-15 kind of a row crop/vineyard version of a low profile orchard tractor. It was orginally used on the farm when it was a dairy, and has been used with row crops to cultivate, etc. Nice tractor, and in my opinion was very competitive to Fords and Ferguson of that era. Our plan is to keep it in the family for the next 51 years!

i've got a 1948 VAO. doen't know if it's a VAO 15 or what? it has a wide front that's not adjustable.no 3pt. the steering wheel is down close to the dash. sure is better than my Allis C,B,i had. just so hard to pull 240#s up and down,to operate. the VAO is easy on off. i,ve only had it a few months. cold wheather put a stop to my painting outside. doesn't have the full armor,just the clam shells. someone out there could make some bucks if they could make them. gary

I have a few VAO,s and I just got a VAC 14. The VAO,s are 1946/47 and the 14 is a 1953 so the seat is newer style and it has an Eagle Hitch. The gear shift and platforms are similar but the 14 has no latch on the hood, wide rear axles and it has a single wheel up front.

There's a guy in town that has a 15 and it's much shorter than my 14 .... it's a straddle mount while the 14 is a flat-floor. The 15 also has the short axles and underslung exhaust.

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Corn in Southern Wisconsin: The Early Years - by Pat Browning. In this area of Wisconsin, most crops are raised to support livestock production or dairy herds in various forms. Corn products were harvested for grain, and for ensilage (we always just called it 'silage'). Silo Filling Time On dairy farms back in the 30's and into the first half of the 40's, making of corn silage was done with horses pulling a corn binder producing tied bundles of fresh, sweet-smelling corn plants, nice green leaves with ear; the ...
