When I was 8 years of age my legs were to short to reach the clutch / brake pedals of my parents Ford 8-N.

I had a chance to operate a Styled JD "D" with "hand clutch" on Threshing day....:) I would head to the field pulling two 16' wagons designed for bundles. On the return, as I approached the belt driving the thrashing machine, an adult would accompany me as I pulled into position.

In 1975 I purchased 244 acres of land (100 acres in crop) with a line of small machinery that include a styled JD "AR".

I then purchased two JD "R's, one for parts and one in first class condition. I left the farming area to follow a career that I retired from in my 40 th year, returned back to my farm community,married the widow across the road and purchased another 122 cares of land.
Before I retired in 2011, I would purchase any affordable Styled JD "Ds" that caught my eye,transport them back to my property. I required a well equipped Tractor for every day usage around the yard. At an auction I purchased a well known John Deere "520"...
Our JD 520 was petty much useless with the narrow 38" tires...with the 18.4 X 30 loaded this 520 is a perfect match for our requirements.
Our property is rented to the neighbor, we spend time breathing life back into old JD's.
