Tired tonight but had a good day with my oldest son going and getting a SMTA. About 325 miles away but the passes were clear today. Complete and in decent condition, will remove the farmhand F11 loader and clean it up tomorrow. Hopefully the engine is ok. Thought I would share a couple pictures, Mike.

Just curious, not being critical. What is the weight rating on that trailer? It looks a lot like my Big Tex car hauler but I am limited to 6000 lbs including the trailer. My SMTA came in around 9000 lbs when I had it trucked here. I hauled my 300U with loaded tires (weight unknown) on my car hauler. It was all she would take. I was glad I swept off the deck before I loaded because the dust might have been enough to splay it out. It would help me a lot if I could haul the SMTA but not willing to kill my trailer to do it.

Hello Dave, trailer was built in South Dakota but I can't think of the name right now. Tag on it says 10,000 with 15 inch rubber and 12,000 with 16 inch. I have had it about 20 years and when I rebuilt the deck and painted it I switched up to 16 inch tires. My work pickups promptly went to 17 inch tires and dried up my source of cheap rubber. It has a 20 foot deck so it tows really nice. I think the manufacturer might have been Roadking.

Bought mine june 27 1990 at a large sale i use to go to twice a month and the only issue mine had at the time was NO BRAKES and one headlight was burnt out and i was told by the man who consigned it that he bought it new in 54 . I still have mine , i had to put a new cam and g timing gears in it and i have changed it over to 12 volt now.

Sounds like a nice tractor, I still hook one or two of mine onto hay balers every year. I have thought that the Farmall M was the best all around tractor for years.

looks like it had a 20 year sleep with all that moss , and had the exhaust pipe covered?

Well they said it had been setting 12 years so you are probably pretty close. Exhaust was covered so fingers crossed but it did come from the wet side of the state. Parked for owner medical reasons not any known tractor problem.

Looks pretty complete and ready to work on. Where are you located in Washington? I am in Ellensburg and also have an SMTA. From the greenish tint on the loader I assume it was from Western Washington. You picked a good day, passes have been off and on all week

Hello Hayfarmer, yes I drove right past you. I live near Lacrosse and the tractor was about 15 miles northwest of Mt Vernon. I figure if this one is not fixable it has a lot of small parts that I can use on another of my SMTA’s that was previously owned by a tractor puller and missing most parts that could be unbolted. Picked up a parts international 2424 between Kittitas and Ellensburg last weekend, I suppose I should not look at Craigslist for a while now.

I remember Lacrosse from my old days traveling back and forth to WSU. It was probably a blessing to the town when highway went around it. I bought my SMTA from a guy here who said it was a super M. Original owner. Not too much good about it when I bought it, did have an after market 3 point, metal good but engine stuck from sitting with no muffler.Now after lots of work it is a good tractor. I have a Dual 325 on it with PTO pump. It now has power steering also and later model(tie rods behind) wide front. Since I only paid $100 for it to start with I don't have quite as much in it as I would otherwise.

Lotsa hydraulics on that one! I bet that loader has been on a long time. The front tin looks straight as an arrow.

Yes someone liked adding stuff on. Looks like PTO pump was for loaderlift, bucket and plumbed for a hay grapple. Tractor pump was running power steering, three point and a remote hydraulic couplers. One valve does not have any plumbing attached. Tin probably looks better in pictures than real life.

Hello I have not really looked it over that well as we kinda cut it out of the blackberries to get it loaded but curious how you could tell an axle was replaced? I will look it over better this afternoon. Thanks, Mike

Maybe you flipped wheels around one at a time in order to get it narrow enough for the trailer and that's why the tires are backward?

Yes wheels are turned around and slid in to get it narrow enough to fit on my car trailer.
