I just brought these two tractors home in a package deal;

The Oliver 550 is complete and includes power steering, it needs rear tires and rims, the grill is busted and I would like to find a used grill for it. This is the third 550 I have had, so I am reasonably familiar with them. It is not running yet, so we will see what I find.

The Cockshutt 540 is new to me, I have not worked with them before and I must say I am impressed, it has some design improvements as compared to the Oliver 550s, such as an externally mounted hydraulic pump, PTO tail end clutch, heavy front axle pivot pin etc. I have the 540 running and it seems to run well, the fuel tank needs cleaned and I have yet to try the hydraulics, PTO or the three point hitch.

These two should keep me in the garage and out of trouble for a few weeks. My plan is to get them running and make sure everything works and then put them up for sale.

I've owned both and I'll take the 540 over the 550 anytime.
