I've started something...lets have a survey...who thinks LP Tractors (All makes and models) look great?? Who thinks (like me) they are UGLY?? If they could just make the LP tank the same size and appearence as the regular gas tank they may be fine...but, NO...have to have a 200 gallon thing up front...let me hear!! Cmore

I agree on ugly but having been around in 1950s when many if not most of the Ms in my area were converted to LP I can tell you the farmers then were only interested in the way the soil looked after the tractors pasted over it.

A good friend has a Case 930 Comfort King that is LP and the tank is behind/under the seat. You cannot even see it except from behind. Not to give any other color kudos but...maybe Case thought the way we all do...liked the power and performance of LP but wanted to hide the fuel storage.

And I suppose you think the propane smell is bad too eh ?? Rather smell that than the stinkin diesel.....and these pickups are double bad !!!!!
Propane was good, clean, economical and delivered great power in the wheat fields of Nebr.
Love em!!!!!!

You are right, it take all kinds to make the world go around. I like LP tractors for a number of reasons. Longer oil life, plugs run longer, fuel is cleaner, closed fueling systum, (the bad guys are not tyring to steal the gas) less slugs in the engine easyer to work on, lower cost per gal etc etc etc. As everyone has talked about their dislikes, this is mine. I think the C and Super C are the most unbalence looking tractor IH made till they went under. When you are out an about you need to LOOK GOOD. MD

Personally, LP tractors to me look like a tractor with Goiter....I dunno...They run real clean and the performance might outperform the marginal looks?? Grandpa had an 1850 Oliver that was factory LP and we converted that sucker over to gas....ran a little different.

But, for the records....ugly is the vote for me Cmore.

I've not owned a Farmall other than gasoline, so I speak from a limited viewpoint. Just aesthetically, I think the LP models just look like something has been tacked on as an afterthought. One of the appeals of the Farmall line was the look......now maybe if the performance is great, one can adjust. An interesting idea, however, and I enjoyed reading the various opinions. I am not one of those who hold such strong opinions that I can't enjoy the others.......

I think my 460LP is beautiful, but ask the owners
of the DEERES I pull against. It's an ugly site to see and old, rusty, LP Farmall do a full pull
snortin LP. Cut tractor loose from trees after
2yrs idle time and it fired up and kicked B-TT.

CMore, I suspect that you have never owned a LP tractor. I will admit when I first saw them, they didn't strike me as particularly pretty, but I wasn't repulsed. Then when I owned my first LP and learned to fuel it, I was smitten. If you ever own one, I suspect you will feel the same. kind of an acquired taste...like the first time you drank beer when you were young and thought it was awful. Then you develop that taste and wish you had a swimming pool full of it to jump into......or is that just me???

I like LP tractors.

You're right, I never owned an LP tractor...but, then, I've never had an ugly wife, either. Not many where I grew up in NE Missouri....looks like I'm in the minority with my "ugly" opinion...Cmore

In my humble opinion, the are not ugly but not quite beautiful. I do like them, they have a look all their own. I do like the LP JD's better than the LP IH's, to me seems they look more "finished" than an IH which looks like a hack job. I would take one of any color though! Fireman

Had an MM M670 super lp that was quite lovely. I have never seen a IH that looked that good( in LP of course).

When I first saw them I thought they did look rather ugly but after getting used to seeing tractors with a monster tank in the middle of the hood they seem to have a charm of their own. If you thought the LP gas doesn't flow with the tractors styling you should see a tractor with a producer gas system on it. Mostly found on European tractors from the continent during the '30's and war years. It looks like someone strapped something a bit bigger than an oil drum to the side or front and put a chimney on it! They were painted black as well regardless of tractor colour. SAm in NS

Put me down in the beauty column also. They don't look so bad as to keep me away from them. It would have to be a deal that I couldn't refuse, though.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I don't think they are necessarily beautiful, but they have interesting looks and I have always liked the performance and cleanliness of LP gas. As stated below, these machines were not designed with an LP tank in mind. If LP came in square tanks they would have had better luck. The ones that are not so good looking are the early LP attempts with the vertical tanks.

Some look better than others but remember the styling of the tractor was not done with that tank in mind. If you think they look funny try figuring out where to put a lp tank on a tractor made in the last ten years! On our MX-120 the tank fills in the area under the left side of the cab and extends behind the axel and is a truly weird shape, but it works perfect. Even many of the add on diesel tanks that used to be popular look goofy. Pretty tractors are nice but if they won't do the job farmers will find one that will regardless of style or color, they are after all just very expensive tools.

As Steven@nd said-"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" & I for one don't think they are necessarily beautiful, but they're not bu## ugly either! I've run one & always thought that it ran "beautifully", so put me in the "beauty" column. (My $0.02 worth. jal-SD)

I think they go a step beyond ugly, right to FUGLY!

But then, there weren't any around when I was growing up in mid-Michigan in the 50's and 60's, so I could be a tad biased...

I grew up thinking all tractors were LP,First time I seen a gas tractor I thought they forgot to put a tank on it. My preference is diesel now, but I'd rather have a LP than a gas any day!

As a novice though I didn't appreciate the fact that there were so many Fordson tractors made, that all the other makes seem rare by comparison.
