Favorite Other Brand Of Tractor

I'm just sitting here thinking & wondering, what are some of your favorite non IH tractors.  MM, Masey, Oliver, AC, etc.. **** maybe even a Sheppard.  I know this is a red page, but I am interested in hearing of your opinions, I already know Jerry's will be his Massey Harris that is dolled up now.  I would have to say I like a good large frame 50 series Oliver or 1130 Massey

Partial to NH tractors myself.  

 

And Cub Cadet garden tractors of course! :)

 

And I wouldn't turn down a White 2-105, a JD 4455, Ford TW-5 or 10, or an 8830. :)

I knew you'd show up Mark.  The WD comes in close 3rd & as far as owning one, I would like a WD instead of the Oliver.

Yes after Cockshutt was absorbed by White they dropped the "real " Cockshutt tractors and marketed Olivers painted red and white as Cockshutt. Good enough tractors and they sold a bunch here. 

I've got a couple of the older "real" Cockshutts that have been around the farm almost as long as I have.

I've always liked the Fords. I've spent time on 2000,3000,4000,5610 and 7600.

My most favorite tractors are of course red. 560, 656 and the 2+2's. But my most favorite non-red tractor would have to be a Ford Commander 6000. l've never driven one or even been around one, but l have always liked the looks of them, especially a LP model like this one. And yeah l know the transmission was supposed to be a POS.

Same tractors from Italy.

Spent many an hour in a Same Leopard85,  and various generations of Same  Explorer 80s and 90s. Also Same Laser 110 and a few Same Antares  110 and 120.

Did have a spin in a Same Silver 100.6 once. Nice tractor but not too sure why it needed 60 forward and 60 reverse gears. I never used all  40 forward and reverse gears of an explorer 90 though the slow.speeds were useful for close manoeuvring.

All Same tractors are designed as a fourwheel drive tractor and were some of the first four wheel drive tractors to be built. And certainly the first to be designed as such. The 2wd Same tractors are an option that has to be specified.

One of the best features of Same tractors has to be the four wheel disc brakes fitted as standard. No mfd shafts brakes or automatic application of mfd to brake front wheels. Also means that front and rear independent brakes can be applied. Or if you prefer front brakes can be disengaged when  independent brakes are applied.

True four wheel braking means mucho stopping :D I mean bloody windscreen stopping power. Seriously I have had to anchor up on our back roads before now and peel my face off the windscreen. :blush: It amazes me that other tractor companies have not followed suit.

Also I have a soft spot for JD 4455s after spending much of the summer of 2003 in one.

Closet Oliver / White fan here grew up on 77, S77, 16-1755 & White American 80 & 120. Having said that I have made my living working on IH & CaseIH, have to admit they have grew on me too.
