He was able to buy a 1946 A brand new when he left the Army from WW II. He also had a 1935 B that had a loader on it which was also used to mow hay with a JD no. 5 mower. As my older brother and I got older we would both be in the field with the G and the A that had a power block added to it. That is where I first experienced "destructive" and "constructive" sound waves. When we drove past each other sometimes it would get totally quiet for a brief time and then double loud for a brief time. I later learned in the mid 1980's in physics class at the local junior college about this phenomena. "Destructive" waves cancelled each other out and "constructive" waves amplified each other.

My Dad died September 10,1970. We kept the farm going and I officially started farming in January 1973 of my Senior year of high school, I bought all of the cattle and machinery including the A, B, D, and G and used them the next few years along with a 4010d. I still have them all except for the G, but I bought a 1953 G a few years ago so I would have the original "herd" of tractors again. So many good memories along with a few with my newer 4020, 4320, and 4440. I have driven many ages, breeds, and modals of tractors over the years with good memories as well.

The first part of my story got lost, so here it is; Dad had a 1929 D that my grandfather bought new. My Dad was a kid and remembered the D being unloaded in the corn crib for some reason and they had to put a couple of lugs on it to get over a concrete curb. I remember riding on the transmission case while he plowed. When he came driving home from plowing with a 3-14" little genius plow, the cats would start to gather. He would usually have 2-3 gophers that he had shot with his .22 pistol to give them. A few years later he bought a 1951 G and gave the D to our milk man George Miller. When George died his widow gave it back. Unfortunately it sits in my machine shed stuck and with the rear rims rusted badly from calcium chloride used as weight. Here is a picture of steam power before the D.

mrslesq - Very good story and very good pictures!

That last picture - the one-man hay operation - is one that I've never seen.
