Ever pulled stumps with your tractor? Think what this fellow must have went through.

Found this while killing time…….uh… uh…. I mean……. doing some very serious scientific research. I apologize to those who visit the new format over at Yesterdays Tractors and have already viewed the picture.

Note for Andy’s ears only: Kim is now experimenting with the same software you are using here. Thanks to you and your site I won’t have as large of a learning curve to overcome over there once she makes the switch. Sure wish I could get you two together and have you exchange notes on the tweaks ya’ll have made. You both are coming up with some good ones.

What is that all about?
Looks like the tree just grew up through the frame
while the tractor sat in one place for ages. Was there any story
that went along with the pic?

There was no story with the picture. It was posted on a site that is experimenting with a new format. The poster was pulling a john-in-ga trick and trying out the new bells and whistles and learning to attach a picture.

Think the picture was meant to be humorous. Well at least amusing. At first I though it was one of those “doctored” photos. However, the tag on the tractor and the tractors in the background make it appear that someone carried this to a antique tractor show. If it isn’t a doctored picture, someone went to a lot of trouble get the thing to the show, not to mention cutting the tree without damaging the tractor or causing injury to themselves. I’ve read stories of people going to even more trouble and effort to “save” an old tractor. This will be the first one I’ve seen carried to a show “as is” -- that is just cut from a tree.

If that was a Georgia Sweet Gun tree growing up through the tractor, it didn’t take as many years as you would think to get that big. Probably less than ten.

Someone asked at a show yesterday if I knew where the Leader tractor was built, thinking it was Shelbyville, IN where the Custom and Wards were built.

I don't know, but do know they are no relation. Does anyone know?

Gwill,

Thanks for identifying the tractor. Now that you have, I can read Leader on the tag. Sorry I don’t have any information for you. You are the one I’d recommend as a source for answers to questions such as you’ve asked.

I did a small web search and found this link that gives a little information. According to the site the tractor was made by Leader Tractor Mfg. Co. of Chagrin Falls, Ohio.

I can’t vouch for the information given. Hope the link helps.

Who is Al Gore? How is it that he is being introduced into this thread? :confused: Oh yeah……was he the fellow that invented the internet? :D Well, he needs to leave tractors alone and work on the internet a little more it still has a few bugs that need fixing. :whistle:
