I have a 1948 Case D. It is one of the toughest tractors ever made, and I love mine, but I would never buy one as an only tractor, especially for chore work. There is no practical way to put three point hitch on it, it probably doesn't have hydraulics at all, if it does they are not live. Finding a front end loader for it is going to be tough. I'm not saying don't buy it, just that it's not the greatest choice for what you seem to need. The only implements for it are pull-type. By all means buy it, you'll love it. Ds have tremendous power and torque for their size, and they handle well. It'll make a great toy (just don't refer to it as such around the wife)and it will be great to have if you get something else stuck or hung-up. Just my $.02. Karl

Hey there, Kirk...

Thanks a million for all the info you have given. It has been quite helpful.
I see what your saying about clearing trees. I certainly don't need any accidents while cleaning the yard. Like I said before, the loader would be an extra..... I'm sure I would be able to use one, but it would be a over a short time. I'd use it and then I would be done with it. Ah heck, who am I fooling, I am sure I would find a use for it.

Any way, thank you....

Happy tractoring !!
