Thank you all for your support, and you all know who you, are in voting in our poll this month for June 2017 winner...... Profoundag's Farmall H
- My 1952 Farmall H was restored by the local FFA Chapter and raffled off at their annual Antique Tractor Ride. I, being a former member of this Chapter, attended like I always do and ended up winning this beautiful tractor!
It was a very hard choice this month, but we've finally found a winner for the "Tractor of the Month" for April, in the form of this 1969 John Deere 60. Our winner, grnspot110, has been a regular contributor to our forum since August 01, 2010 and has given many of us some great and informative advice. As a retired Firefighter, he not only has he respect of his community at home, but also the respect of his friends here on Tractorforum!
This project tractor started out as another one of those "Just see if I could" projects! Grnspot110 bought the tractor with a "blown" replacement 6 HP Tecumseh and had it for 2 years before deciding what to do with it! In his own words, grnspot110 let us in an a little bit of the history of this great build.....
This great looking 1932 Gibson 300 "D" belongs to ccdrumm84 who has been a member since 2012.
The Gibson Model "D" began with 22" rear tires, but eventually were upgraded to 24" rear tires on rims that were adjustable, giving it a 33" minimum tread and a maximum 53 1/4" width. Fenders were an option. The 'D' had 4.00 x 12 front tires and a wheel base of 46". It weighed in at almost 1000 pounds. They were initially painted Ford Tractor gray and red, and were promoted as being able to operate a 13 1/2 " plow and handle two to three acres per day .
Here's a great looking tractor that was voted as "The Tractor of the Month" for January 2017. It belongs to long time member and contributor "sixbales" who hales from Texas.
This Ford 3600 burned up in a fire back in 1991, was extensively repaired and put back into service.The attached picture show how it is today. Sixbales often say that he would never take on a project like that again, but the tractor has performed well over the past 25 years, and is more than happy with his restored tractor.
This Economy 2418 Power King was voted in as our TractorForum "Tractor of the Month" for February 2017 and belongs to buggyman who's been a member since 2013.
It's a 1978, 18 Horse power with a 4 speed transmission. Power King began production in 1946 and continued their production for over fifty years. The company was originally called Engineering Products and they manufactured Economy and Jim Dandy tractors in Wisconsin, however for fear that the name would imply that the tractors were cheap, they renamed them Power King!
