Can someone sell me on the benefits of a SUPER A?

I have a chance to acquire a Super A in good condition for a good price.

I have a 41 A.

I plan to use the A for mowing, and some small row cropping, and I have a front snowblade for the A for light duty snowplowing.

But, if I was to get a Super A, would I be that much better off?

If ya had an opportunity to get a A Super A would you do it and sell the A. I can only keep one.

Whatya think? need some sage advice. Any kind of advice too.

My cousin had an A and my uncle had a B. My experience was driving these pulling a wagon load of hay. If you couldn't make a hill, you might as well jump, because the brakes were almost non-existent, going backwards. I believe this was corrected on the Super A. I know the first C's, that came out, had much better brakes than the A or B.

I can't add much to what others have said, hydraulics is your big advantage. The other factor that would be an item with me is coil ign. over mag ign., but then I never did get along well with mags. I would think coil ign. would less costly in the event of repairs. They are both great little tractors, easy to store, will work their heart out for you and very economical to keep running for the guy who earns his living elsewhere and wants tractor for yard work.

The principle advantage of a Super A over an A is hydraulics to lift attachments and implements.
Whether that is enough of an advantage to make you want to change is entirely up to your personal preferences and needs.
If what you have now suits you and is working OK, why change?

The Super A was the first "Super" model. Started building them in 1947 and full production in 1948. Early ones still had mag ignition, distributors became an option in I believe 1949. As already said, Super A has live hydraulics. That is the main advantage. A stock Super A engine is a 113 like an A, they didn't get the 123 until the Super A-1 in 1954. You can put an oversize sleeve kit in a 113 and make it a 123. The mounted implements for a Super A are almost totally different. Super A implements are easier to find, and less clumsy to put on and take off, since there are no lift levers and springs to deal with. If you retrofit a fast-hitch on it from a 100 or newer tractor, you can use all the implements from a 100 on through the 140's. The A is a fine tractor but if I were going to do much work with implements I would want a Super A, assuming I could find one in as good a shape as my A!
