My first love was a 48 H,it broke my heart to sell her, but I'm fond of both my 52 Super A and my 53 super H.

My uncle had a Super MTA that I got to run a lot and I believe in that time, that tractor was just about as good as a tractor could be, I sure enjoyed it. Later I had a straight Super M and it was good, but not as nice as the MTA. Now I run a CaseIH 7110 for a farmer friend, and with all the conveniences it has, it is a very nice machine to run but it lacks "character", I guess you'd call it. When you're an oldtimer like me, you sort of share the work with your tractor and the older ones were just more fun (most of the time) to work with. I've got an M now and a couple of (don't shoot) two cylinder John Deeres that I do exhibition plowing with and they are sure fun to run. They are not the tractor the Super MTA was though.

Grandpa retired from farming back in 65, but I can say Both of us really liked his 2 Ms. I was too little to drive them , but Grandpa always talked about how good those tractors were for him. He also had an F-20 with a loader, but after he tipped it over taking logs off an old cabin and nearly lost a finger, I guess the love was lost for it. My experience on a tractor growing up was on a 51 Ferguson TO20. We bushhogged, hauled short logs for firewood, lifted logs for a shed with the boom, and so many more things with that little beast. I did some plowing with it and it did great with that also in 3rd gear. That is one "bang for the buck" little utility tractor.I would sell 2 ford 9Ns to get one ferggy!Tough! 25 years of hard working it and not one problem outside of batterys getting old and a limb knocking off the fuel shut off knob. The Allis C (and the rest of those) are nice looking also, but I just sat on one to mow once in a while and only remember it was a good one.

I farmed for 30 years, owned 15 different tractors from a 53 Farmall Super A to a 1975 Farmall 1066. I have operated many other than my own. I probably have 25,000 hours in tractor seat, lifetime. My favourite was my Farmall 656D. To all you guys who said Farmall M, the 656 is just a derivetive of the Farmall M. I did own a Super M. If you guys can imagion an M with armchair comfort, you can imagion a 656. Someone once asked what I liked most about 656; I responded that on a corn planter or a mower conditioner it will out manouver a Massey 135, and for a much larger tractor that damn good. It would also pull a 5 x16 semi mount plow 8 inches deep.

Without hesitation, I like the Farmall M - a real classic looking farm tractor. Makes you feel special when you drive one.

I'm basically color blind but I grew up on a Farmall M; it will always be No. 1 with me.

I have always liked farmall 450's. Dad had one when I was little, and I just couldn't stop thinking about one of my own. Finally got one this past fall.

Favorite from my childhood on Grandpa's farm was the old Allis Chalmers C I used to run all over the countryside. I have a couple H's and a 460 Industrial now. Need to find an old AC "C".

I would have to say my favorite is a 966 or a 1066. I have run both alot, and man, what a machine. I think the 1066 is a little better w/the turbo, but I like to 966 because it don't have a cab. A 656 is not far down the list either. Although I enjoy my super C's too.

This is my all time favorite, my dad's 1256 he bought new in 1969. Wish he still had it. By the way the tractor was 13 years old in this photo, that is original paint.

It's probably a toss up between my 37 Farmall F30
and a LA case of my dads that I ran as a kid.

I can remember 2 tractors that My Dad bought. One was a 1952 Super M. Man I thought that tractor was something. I loved hearing that govener coming on and off. Then he bought a 400 Diesel in 1956, I loved that Diesel and that TA. As a Kid I liked seeing those puffs of black smoke when the govener opened on hard pulls. I have both of those tractors today plus a 600 Diesel. I'd have to say its a toss up between that 400 and the 600.

Don't know as I ever drove anything other than a Farmall. Grandpa must've had his doubts about me figuring out the shift pattern on the Oliver that served as his heavy tractor. It's purely sentiment, but I'd say his BN was a great little tractor. That's what I learned to drive on. I was just able to buy it back, and it'll be a labor of love getting her back in shape. Sentiment aside, I'd be a little torn between an H and a SuperC among the Farmalls. Grandpa's H was a hard workin' tractor, but running my own SuperC, I can see how it was a handier tractor to have--stronger than the A/B/BN but easier to handle and maneuver than the H. Trying to be objective, I'd vote for the C/SuperC as the handiest tractor. Favorite, though? Gotta be my BN.

Would have to say my Super MTA!! Runs better than our newer tractors, has better lugging power, and STYLE like a 57 Chevy!

Steven

PS I'm sure I'll love my H just as much once she moves under her own power!

All tractors, but I have really only drven the Farmall's and Cases. Out of them, I would have to say my 1940 Farmall M... Nothing like it in the world, especially when you have a 80" snow bucket full of dirt, and have no power steering! ;-) Just builds muscle, thats all...

I was extremely fond of the 4010 as a kid but of all the ones I have owned I think my H Farmall is about the handiest and the most fun to drive.
