|kevin ruetsche||hello all and may i first starty out by wishing you all a very merry christmas i was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what woukd be a good tractor to get in starting out in antique collecting? like to just get my feet wet and see where i can go i like to go to shows and enjoy all the comarodery between the people any help?ty
|jman||I'd say look for something fairly common. Purchase price will be reasonable and parts will be much easier to find. Are you going to use the tractor, or just restore for show or parades? If you are going to use it, 3 pt hitch and PTO will be major considerations, as you will need those to run many of today's attachments. It really kind of depends what you like, but here are a few that would be great to start with (assuming you have no particular brand in mind):
There are hundreds more to pick from, but this might give you a starting point anyway. Welcome to the wonderful world of tractor collecting. I am assuming you have an adequate amount of patience and ingenuity. Good luck.
|bontai Joe||Also any year Farmall Cub, or Cub LoBoy, Deere model G, H, or M and many others. Do you have a memory of any relatives owning tractors (like your dad or grandfather, or an uncle)? Getting one of the same model can be very rewarding. And if you just want to get your feet wet with minimal investment, there are websites dedicated to repairing and restoring 1950's and 1960's vintage garden tractors, such as Gravely, Cub Cadet, Deere, Bolens, etc. The advantage is that these little guys take up less room if that's a consideration.
