  1. In its day, a Allis Chalmers 60 or 70 series planter was hard to beat. You could plant as fast as you handle the tractor.
  2. That is a good picture.
  3. All so for cotton picker, and corn picker.
  4. I am 61, will be 62 in July. This day and time I try to stay out of people way. It is like living on another planet. But it is great when you come across some one that is old school, and you can have a good talk on the same level.
  5. Is every gear slower or just first? I think tractor data have the speeds the same.
  6. Good looking 140, very nice.
  7. For me living in the past is far better than what the future looks like.
  8. I see your H has the cultivator cylinders on it, very nice. They look good to me not being all shiny red.
  9. I have one in bloom.
  10. Not many. That is for sale.
  11. Master Craft
  12. It would have to be a very lite 8. You would need some front end wts.
  13. Look at that black dirt. I do not see that in the south.
  14. Here a Barn has a hall way down the middle, Hay up top, corn crib an feed is one side and the other side is where you fee the cows, the whole length of the barn. Would park a wagon or loaded truck in the hall, until it was unloaded. The hall has a gate at each end so that you could work cows there, are put gear on your mule or horse.
  15. Leeave96, My dad purchase a 1953 SC in 53. I was born in 55, we farm 30 ac of corn and 40 ac of cotton with that SC until 1968. Dad retired and started truck farming, and we planted about 15 ac of corn. This SC was the only tractor we had until I started farming in 1974. It replaced our two Mules, as I was glade of that, but he all ways had a Mule until the late 70s.The SC had one engine kit put in it ,and one head job after that out of 33 years, I was a fool and sold it in 1988. The SC is and was a great tractor, you could get a cotton picker or stripper for it, and a mounted one row corn picker. I do not know of any other tractor of it size that had cotton pickers for them. And this one did not have the FH. But to answer your question, yes a SC could work hard for many years, as your only tractor. There is not a small diesel tractor of any brand built today that can hold up to a SC.
