Does anybody have pictures of Farmall tractors rigged up in tandem for plowing?

I don't have pictures but when I was small (about 1980) I remember seeing a "tractor" at a show doing what you are talking about. I took interest because it was two farmall super m's which is what we own. The back tractor had its front wheels removed and was attached to the back of the front tractor with a special made hitch. It had two operators that had to communicate to work the clutch, brake and gas. It was pulling a 8 bottom plow. This is all I remember.

Here's a shot of my daughter leaving with a tandem setup transporting my two tractors to a nearby show. Saves time and gas getting them 10 miles there and back, and the outfit looks kinda cool rolling down the road! ...Bob M

Don't have any pics but I hook my three "H"s & "M" together for parades and it isn't much different.......I made a pole out of 2x2 tubing that hooked to the mud scraper that I modified and the tractors all follow each other like a train but unless you make some kind of dual controls .....you'll need a extra person just to ride to operate gas.!!.....I have my grandkids ride in parades, wave and throw candy......if you can't get any help I'll take pics of my modifations and send you....good luck...

I have heard tell of a farmer down the road from me who used to have 2 H's set up in tandom for plowing. Now that would be something to see. If anyone has any info on how to do that.(make 2 tractors plow in tandom) please let us know. Maybe I'll put together some time and take it up to the steam show and plow with it.

If you mount the rear tractor on a fifth-wheel setup on the drawbar of the front tractor, all you need to do is adapt the clutch of whichever tractor you are not going to drive. A hydraulic clutch setup you can latch in place enables you to release the clutch on the dummy tractor from the driven tractor. A hand M&W clutch is easy to adapt to remote operation also.

Then you can dismount, shift the dummy into gear, set the throttle, and return to the driven tractor to engage the clutch.

You need a remote kill switch for the dummy tractor.

If you are driving the front tractor, the steering on the front will steer the entire outfit. If you are driving the rear tractor, you need an extended steering shaft from the front to the rear with u-joint over the fifth wheel. Easier is to put independent power steering on the front tractor and run hoses to the rear tractor's steering wheel/control valve.

If you drive the front tractor you need oil pressure and temperature remote to monitor the rear engine. For rear driving, you can see the front tractor's gauges and exhaust well enough to stay out of trouble.

Since Farmall's run wide open without load with no problems, there is no reason to try to set up remote throttle control. If you need less power, throttle down the driven tractor, until you remove the remote tractor entirely by using the clutch.

For serious work, independant dummy brake controls are nice but not necessary.

That would be a neat setup for a tractor show!

Today's Featured Article - Allis Chalmers ED40 - by Anthony West. Allis Chalmers as a tractor manufacturer in its own riht is but a memory. However the number of AC tractors still in existence today as either restored or unrestored examples is a testament to the quality of their products. This in itself is always apparent here in the U.K when attempting a purchase, as no matter what the model or condition the price will always be strong. ... [Read Article]
