Cock Shuts were made in Canada and were the Canadian Oliver they merged at some point in there.I always thought it was a funny name also.Sort of reminds me of some of the languge my dad uses when he really gets ticked off at a piece of farm equipment.Or when we use to try to get some stuborn live stock loaded.He use to use a few choice words that were simular.:furious: They are a nice looking tractor from there time however.When we were kids are neighbor owned a Cock Shut they were here in Illnois on a few farms also.When ever the neighbor went by our house on it.My older bros would say there goes that old Cock Shut again.I was about 5 years old.One day that neighbor was at are house and I said how you doing Ya Old Cock Shut.I thought they meant the old neighbor not the tractor.But even the neighbor thought it was funny.
