New Farmall 100

Postby virginia100 » Mon Oct 30, 2006 11:09 pm

Hi, my name is Steve. I just had a Farmall 100 given to me. I have been in the market for an antique farm tractor for some time and still can not believe that this one was given to me. This Farmall was used for grounds maintenance at a US Government facility. It was used the last 20 years only once or twice a year for plowing up a small garden and the last 5 years not started at all just sitting in a barn collecting dust. It has a Woods L306A 72" belly mower that came with it along with a single bottom plow. For a 50 year old tractor it is in great shape. The only real thing wrong with it was the plug wires; after replacing the plugs, wires, points and condenser along with changing the oil it started right up. It runs just like a new tractor. I got all of the original manuals, the original sales brochure and the maintenance log. The maintenance log says that the engine was rebuilt in ‘84 which was about the time they bought new mowers and a new green tractor so I don't think it has many hours on the engine since being rebuilt. I plan on restoring it to new condition but for now I am enjoying driving it around the yard and up and down our dirt road. I mow about 5 acres so it is tempting to try out the Woods mower next spring. It also came with an A-60 Leveling and Grading Blade. My garage is getting full of tractor accessories along with this tractor I have 4 garden tractors all with multiple attachments so I have two garage bays full of tractors and implements.

Welcome!
Nice tractor. Fast hitch too, you will have to get a disc so you can enjoy swapping implements.
Best,
Mike

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
