Don't take this wrong, fellas, but I noticed a lot of the posts lately are in the Politcal and OT sections. That's fine and dandy that there is a place here to vent and argue, but it's just not my thing. But to each his own. :)

Here's some imported tractors that I saw at the Missouri State Fair. I will post the pics from the fair in different places rather than all in one place for bandwidth considerations.

All of my State Fair pics are here:Mow's MO State Fair Pics Click an image for a bigger pic, or click "Start Slideshow"


McCormick tractors made in England

Greg,

Note the green Valtra in the background. I think they are available in 7 or 8 different colors.

Here's some more pics on a different thread of some FFA kids restored tractors: FFA Kids Restored Tractors

Thanks for the photoshop job. Errr, I think.:truth:

It's an election season Moe and everyones wants their opinion heard...don't know whether it'll change the outcome, but I imagine it gives self gratification.

Awe.........we was just havin' a little "hog pile" Mow. :D ;) :idea: :cowboy: Great pictures; wish I could have gone to the fair with you! Looks like you had a great time. The Valtra's are kinda funky looking but look like nice machines.

Yeah a Little HOg Piling going on. :D :D :D We just couldn't resist. Those are strange looking tractors with the sloping hoods but I imagine the slight lines would be pretty good with a front end loader

The Mc Cormick tractors are an IH design dating back to the 70's (with upgrades of course). The last IH configuration was the C series CASE-IH tractor series. With the New Holland buyout of CASE-IH, they had to sell the C series off. Landini of Italy bought the Doncaster England plant, the C series design pattents, and the Mc Cormick name.

The Valtra tractors are relatively new to Canada, but seem to have a good reputation. In the Maritime provinces they are popular in the forestry industry. VERY expensive tractors!!

Thanks for the pictures Mow! I know it takes a fair bit of time to set up a page like that and make it as nice as you did. :thumbsup:

That Toro Dingo was different. Just needs some sort of a seat on the back though. ;)

I guess without a seat it would be easy to let go of when you tip it over!

I saw something similar to that when I had a guy over to do some electrical work (all wiring for the house and property is underground) and he had a trencher tool on his. It did not do very good on the clay soil I have and he finally had to get his tractor to finish the project.

I bet for the price of that Dingo a fella could buy him a pretty decent little used tractor. Did they have a price on it Mow?

These are more of a walk behing skid steer than a tractor. They are used by landscapers and others and are suppose to fit in small areas and not tear up the turf. There are several attachments for them. They are pretty pricey.

Great pix Mo, thanks for sharing.......

One where you walk alot.

I guess there are some good uses for it when the ground area is not well geared towards the skid steers riping up everything just moving around.

Mow,
Great pics of the fair! Looks a great fair to go to. Have you been there before? I went to my local fair in NJ where I grew up for many years, but stopped about 12 years ago when it lost the last of it's focus on farming and became a yuppie extravaganza.
