While I love all my IH tractors on the farm, this one is my favorite. Her name is Bobbi Ann and she has been with us for 27 years. And yes all of our tractors have names, and they are all girls. How about y'all? Which one on your farm is your favorite IH?

The 1466 black stripe is my favorite. Liking the big front tires. 16's? Do I have Bobbi Ann's serial number?

Except for the 966 and the M every thing else was bought new by my family. 
I don’t really play favorites cuz I don’t want them to fight but overall I would say the old M is my favorite. That loader has lifted a million things for me since we bought it in 1972 and has never needed anything except a few batteries over the years. 

"Killer" is looking pretty sharp! Could you give me the serial number for the registry?

Lots of great tractors! I love it! Many of you have said it's hard to choose just one, I kinda have the same thing, depends on what your doing. I have all but one of my dads tractors which is special as well, including the only one he bought new (Genie) one of our 1486's. Really love Genie, Jamie, Lulu, Ethel, Cruella, Ruthie, Priscilla, Joanie, Scotti Ann, Terri Lynn, Holly Jo and Patsy but Bobbi Ann is still the favorite.

The last 2 I would ever get rid of are my 1456 and 826 hydro former goldie. They both are so useful and easy to handle.

My favorite IH at our place is the TD 9 known as little bull.

My favorite IH at work is the 7140. My boss's grandpa bought it new in '91. It's got around 11,000 hours on it and the only major failure was the trans input shaft snapped at 5k.

Does my truck count? It's got an IH engine and future plans include a DT 360.

I guess it'd be this one:

It's the big tractor, does just about everything there is to do from plowing to baling hay to hauling firewood. Bought it 10 years ago sight unseen from a guy in Harrisburg, he delivered it to me. I call her the "old red b!tch", but even so, that old tractor don't owe me a dime. Always started, always ran when I needed it to, whether it was 0 or 100 degrees out. I've only ever put a clutch in it, and I'm about to tear into the hydro valves under the dash and stop the leaks. Been studying a newer, bigger tractor but this one's paid for and does all I need it to do. Reckon I'll keep it a while longer.

I was hopping to get better pictures before this but been little busy lately so this will have to do before this thread gets buried. The tractor I grew up on dads 856 and my 1256 sitting side by side. For many years the 856 was the big tractor. Now it’s the smallest outside of my brothers grape tractors. Always loved that thing so when time came I had to stop stealing it to use and a 1256 showed up for sale I didn’t think twice. My loader tractor gets more use but the 1256 is a lot more comfortable.

Fair point, but she can be hateful when she wants to be. She likely won't start this morning when I need her to either, being as she's sat 2 months with no chores. She's going in for surgery this weekend to repair the hydraulic leaks, so I guess after that she'll cease to be a b!tch.

As penance for my blasphemous sins, I decided to wake the old girl up from her winter nap and work a little ground. Filled the tank, topped up the fluids, and funnily enough it took two tries to get her started this morning. We just finished a couple acres of corn stalks, and I snapped this picture to share with you guys:

Yes, that is in fact a 9' disk behind her. The sandy spots really make her bark, especially when the sand is rolling over the disk axles. It's finally dry enough that I'm going to hook up the plow after lunch and get started turning last year's corn ground under. Should be all done by late this evening if all goes to plan.

Ads that touch of reality 🤔

Not sure on the current name and it's not bull gear 😳

Could be Sleeveless or as the younger generation refers to Wife Beater
