In 1948 the John Deere dealer in Titusville Pa. delivered 48 cyclone A to the Farm. It was the 1st one that the dealer revived from Deere Co. Mar of 48. Next day they brought the 3 bottom trailer plows & 10' disc later a #5 mower. Neighbors came to the farm to see this New Big A, Dad & Grandfather were told that our corn wouldn't grow because the tractor was too heavy & would compact the ground. They marveled over a 3 BOTTOM PLOW!~ We were also told why would anyone buy a tractor that was too heavy to put on a barn floor. Well that model A was the 1st of many that have came to the farm, later a MC crawler arrived, + we had purchased 630 & a 730 diesel at local auctions. The 1948 A left the farm in 2000, I hated to see it leave but it wasn't my call, my father bought it new & I don't think the purchase price was anything over 2000.00 for just the tractor. It was our BIG tractor up till around 1970. Some guy wanted it & offered 2000.00 for it so it left. Since my birth in 1957 I only know of one other brand of tractor we had & that was a Oliver 60 that was used to cultivate & rake hay , pull a wagon. 1942 B is still on the farm, we had a 1946 A for many years that was a used Auction tractor & it left in the early 70's after the 630 & 730 Arrived. I have personally had a 50,70 gas, H, a few cyclone B's a Couple A's that I bought & sold. If we like them they hang around & get worked. One memory & I think there is a picture someplace of 5 John Deere A's hooked to a Stone boat, with one very large Pa. Rock on the boat & another Model A pushing to get it off the field. That Rock is still right where we left it.
