    Not no’ing the early history did the standard tractors come out first . And then the farmall. So the standard was the standard. Possibly cheaper to build .

    I think dad always said wheat land tractors were for big fields . Usually those tractors didn’t do chores and sat all winter . Just kinda how I remember it I no there where lots of loaders on wheat lands to

    I don’t no all the details . But I’m pretty sure the decal standard was factory. Seems like tractors from Canada to Kansas have them . I guess I’ve never saw a wheat land decal on anything but a 06 , has anyone saw one on a 56 series?

    Rarer than a SH-TA ??? Be nice to see the serial number tag
  9. Looks like the v6 . Good old motors
  10. Guess I sound like a downer. But lots of hrs listening to thirties farmers. They pushed these experiences on their kids and this affected how they lived. Really was a time when it was hard to tell the well off from the not so well off. I really like the 50 series and finally got a chance to own one about 2014
  11. I agree to always having a radio in the cab thing . I don’t think a lot of u understand how poor or conservative those old farmers were. Pretty much all big and appear to doing well farmers would have a big field tractor and an older loader tractor. Some young farmers who broke with dirty thirties dads were ridiculed for expanding and then probably loosing the farm. Poor mangers they were called. moms uncle farmed till he died in 84 with a D case . New paint was a waste of money. Try getting him to pay extra for a radio.
  12. My 1982 5088 had the short levers but ended up with a tilt steering wheel. Wish it had the Manuel gauges.
  13. I’d say 3 to 3500 around here . But with the big tires and 806 motor I’d probably go towards 5
  14. Bigger is better ? Always thought the 414 started better , if that’s possible. What are the torque numbers comparison on these engines
  15. I haven’t read any of theses posts . Same long argument different time . Damn fine tractors that will get the job done.
  16. It does look like a landscaper . 35” tires on a tonner pulling a zero lawn mower. No offense to anyone. Opposite at my place . Dad would pull 8 big round bales with a regular cab Chevy 1/2 ton .
  17. Duals rule , Isn’t that what the king of obsolete would say ?
  18. Didn’t realize they were made like that , makes sense thou. Thanks for the info
  19. Just wondering if anyone now’s anything about these
  20. Not bad , could be way worse
  21. R those 10 bolt wheels ? Off a 50 series ?

    The CO / global warming post was political ?? Guess I’m missing something here . Did someone call out a individual party ? I posted a graph the facts , I’m sorry if I offended. Maybe just not seeing it
  23. Guess we will never no but would guess u guys r right. I didn’t no but thought with the square hood it might be a 504
  24. Yes just the external parts. My 52 is missing the arms and has the lift cylinder. The 5088 is a non runner but has the arms but no lift cylinder
