I've got some photos I'd like to share. I was blessed with being born in Montana's Judith Basin country and I grew up over there, farmed & ranched, but moved here to Kalispell, Montana 25 years ago. I have many good and bad memorys, but wanted to share some good! The earliest tractor I remember there on the homestead was a Titan with four cylinders and four carburetors or mixers, when I was very young. It ran but got junked when a neighbor wanted to buy a rear wheel for a spring he was developing. Before my time they had four 15-30s and two 22-36s. We were still haying with Farmall Regulars and an F-20 or 30 (I can't remember but it was red.). At my earliest memory we had one styled Farmall, a 1939 H. I still own it, use it, and it is FBH681, making it the 181st one built.
I've been accused of many things in my life but being "normal" isn't one of them. That's just a setting on a clothes dryer, anyway.
This first photo is far from my favorite, but it shows my dad on a 15-30 pulling a McCormick-Deering combine. As I recall, the tractor was well liked, but the combine.... Well, I remember it sitting in a fence corner, the motor used in "the old log shop" to power the line shaft.
This is a later photo. I don't remember when the Cub Cadet first came out, but this is the second one sold in Lewistown and my cousin bought the first one.
This is a picture of my nephew, "Ralphie", on Grandad's new Cub Cadet. I would like to point out the IH equipment in the distance. I see a 141 Combine, a TD-40, A 125SPVC Combine, A Farmall Super A, and a grain drill.
