I have a couple of them. They are my favorite tractor. High seat gives you “command seating” and great visibility. Very comfortable. No electronics or battery. You start it by turning the flywheel (my hand is on it in the PIC). Hand clutch. Independent rear brakes for turning on a dime. Does zero to 8 in 10 seconds flat. I found this one up north. No missing parts. Runs great. All original paint.
Nice machine. I have a good friend who also has your fetish, I am normal fortunately, I have about 40 guitars, banjos, mandos and basses. Sold my Hammond B3 last year and I’m down to a Baby Grand and Yamaha pro keyboard. I’m not crazy like you tractor guys
I grew up in Loveland Co farming on the same one only a 1936 I was 13 or 14 before I could turn the fly wheel safely with out breaking my arm, I never would use the crank in front it hit me a few times just scared the hell out of me after that. I would be on it for hrs haying and that little 2 cylinder had the best sound, my dad would get mad when I would leave the petcocks open after starting it, I liked hearing the sound I guess. I sure miss that old tractor and the spoke wheels and the sound it makes when first started (petcocks open) and the way it felt in the hay field never really liked the way our International M felt, I always liked the old A.
