I helped my dad get some wood with our Case SC and it overheated and stalled out. So I got the Farmall H out to tow it out of the woods. That thing got in soft ground!! My dad got on it but it didnt help with a loader on it. THE NARROW FRONT END SANK!!! Then, I was able to start up the Case SC and got that out of the way. I DIDNT NEED THE H!!!! We got the International 656 out and put our 3-Point hitch WINCH that he made to run off the PTO and got it on the H. It pulled and he had to move the 656 to a better spot and FINALLY WE SAW THE FRONT END!!!
SO: DONT TAKE A NARROW FRONT END IN SOFT GROUND!!!

IF you have a story then reply to this and tell us about it.

Here is a good one that many of you will get a kick out of!!!! My grandpa leased off his farm and retired back on the 60s. On his place there was a spot along at the bottom end of a hillside (a real low hill) and if he ran over that spot more than a time of two it turned into quicksand and whatever he was driving would sink to the frame.It didn't take long to realise that one pass in that area was enough! I don't remember that area ever flooding though. Any way when the $#@&* developers came in to build a "shopping mall"They sent in a crew with earthmovers and bulldozers to level off the area to build on. Guess what!!!!! They found the quicksand patch with a VERY big Caterpiller and it sank like a rock up to the seat! I was a kid back then but I think it may have been a D9,D12 or bigger.I really don't remember now what size but it was a big one! We all went over there to watch them try to pull that thing out and it was like a circus! They had 2 semi size wreckers and very heavy block and tackle set ups running between the large trees that were near by. I remember those semi wreckers pulling and the front wheels raised off the ground several feet and a poor slob sitting in the "soup" on the cat running the thing down to china. By the time we left there was not much of the cat showing above ground!!!! They got it out by digging a hole near it and pumping out the water that came in until the water table dropped. Then they had to dig out the cat.I remember someone joking that they were going to cut off the exhaust stack and pave it over!!! I still laugh about that whole thing to this day! That is what they get for ruining good land with black top and bricks.

I ended up dropping the front of my B in the soft stuff once, had no idea it was soft there. Went over halfway up the tire, the bottom of the bolster was even buried. Turned out to be a seasonal spring there. Never been soft in that spot since. Also dropped the front in a hole in some tall grass. Turns out there aren't any good jacking spots on the front of a B... :o(

The H was embarressed to be out with the Case so it tried to bury it's face in the sand.

They made lot's of them, they just never could make the transition from steam to gas until the IH venture.

My first tractor was an old SC-2. A-OK, but no Farmall.

Today's Featured Article - Show Coverage: Fair Weather Tractor - by Dave M.. No, Fair Weather isn't some rare brand. It's the kind you can't leave out in the rain. Here's how it happened. I had been casually looking for a tractor for weeks. I saw a few 9N's, but they had even fewer amenities than the 8N my Grandpa bought new in '52 with a Dearborn loader. That was 10 years before I was born, so I grew up thinking that 8N was the world's best tractor. Grandpa had greenhouses, with over half an acre under glass, and that 8N did almost everything. It was the only ... [Read Article]
