Letter Series at Work

Recommended Posts

This was also my 1950 super A that I used to clean chicken coops out with and move a trailer around the yard

The old B still earns her keep. Over the years this tractor has done a lot of jobs, but now auger duty is about it.

supply and demand plus condition is why they were there.  this is a nice thread that focuses on the little jobs the Letter Series still can do and brings back a lot of memories for many ppl. Lets keep one  thread in a positive light.  Thanks

 btw I really enjoy everyone's pics so I hope we see lots more

Sorry hillman didn’t mean to start anything. I enjoy seeing everyone’s pics though good to see how reliable all those tractors are 65+ years later

 I love Letter Series ! esp W series. I did a rough tally on the total production numbers of the Letter Series ( including Supers ) and its around 1,050,000 units made without the Cub . Yet there is a few  who just won't let up on them . ....whatever. What other series of tractor made by any company sold that many tractors. AND they were not cheap throwaways like some clunkers. I have been inside enough tractors to appreciate the quality and durability of these machines.  So I thought we could tell or show with pics what little job your Letter Series still does for you. If you hate them please start your own thread on why you don't care for them:blink:  I believe the Letter Series is what started the love we have for the red tractors. IH had such a presence in the rural culture in so many ways in that era

I am just a hobby farmer /collector with a Farmall 656D and 434d as my modern tractors ;)  I try to use a Letter Series if I have a job they can do. My favorite plow is a 8C - 2  ace bottom plow with a W4, sure makes for a smooth field if I have time.

Lets see what you have!

Sorry, don't know how to put pictures on here, but my brothers and I have a ''51 H, a '49 M and a '46 W-9 in our tractor "herd".  They are all in pretty nice showable, paradeable, and workable condition along with 2 and 3 bottom #8 Little Genius plows....(kinda looking for a 4 bottom for the "Old Niner").

Is that an IH #60 3-14 plow?   If so, Nice combination, SM-TA and the #60.

Here's my Super H at work, cultivating sweet corn and tedding straw.
