IH tractor for your computer

Tue Dec 17, 2013 6:06 pm

I know this is off topic, but was not sure where to put it, so the mods can take care of it. :lol: I picked this up at local (50 miles one way) IH dealer today. It works wired or wireless. Appears to resemble an H or M, but not very well detailed. $24.50, and my laptop mouse needed replaced anyway.

I saw something like that at Tractor Supply Co too. They have their Ertl stuff 30% off starting today. I am going by to get the TSC 75th anniversary 1938 IH truck to go with the 75th anniversary 1938 M I have. Still would like to know how they arrived at a 38 M. :lol:

Cool add on for the computer. Wouldn't mind one of those myself...

I don't understand the whole 75th anniversary thing, unless they were gearing up for 2014, since the first "M" didn't roll out until July of '39.

Dusti, The box the M is in claims it is a 38 m. I bought one just because I have never heard of a 38 M. I reckon they Fudged the year of the tractor a little to use a tractor they had plenty of ?

Have you ever known a sales pitch to let facts get in the way? Nor a politician either. :lol:

I was in Tractor Supply today and remembered reading this thread.I bought the 1938 75th edition pickup.They were original $29.99 but were on sale for $17.49....The "H" tractor that I have has the wagon with it and says nothing about anniversary edition.It says on the box produced from 1939 to 1953....The truck is a Tractor supply product and the tractor is CaseIH ERTL 14473P...This is just for information...Rick I had "H" tractor on the brain instead of " M"...disregard my information on the "H".I did not see an "M" in the store...Thanks!

Finally got around to opening mine today, and discovered it is wireless only, the USB cord is just for recharging. I prefer a wired mouse, so I will have to get a different one.

Same place my Dad purchased my Christmas gift. Ordered a plaque of a 1937 WC Allis Chalmers to commemorte my Grandfather's 37 WC which I still own. Plaque says WC, but the pictured tractor is a UC. Guess that's close enough.
