I can't add much beyond what's already been said. The C series were great tractors. I too would try to get a Super C over a C, preferably a Super C with Fast Hitch. Don't over-look the 200--basically a Super C with revised sheet metal, and the 230, which was basically a 200 with a two tone paint job and Hydra-Touch hydraulics. The 230 had a little different fast hitch linkage and to me I think it's better than the fast hitch on the earlier ones. Anyway, C, Super C, 200, 230 I don't think you'll be disappointed. Our old 230 has a single front wheel and a size bigger piston. It is gutsy for its size. I laid by a lot of corn with the 230 and a 300 gal. John Blue nitrogen sprayer and though the 230 had a load behind it, it handled it great. These tractors handle wonderfully--almost like having power steering--and are very comfortable to drive.

I'm 21, and just bought my first Farmall C, something I've wanted ever since I was grasshopper high. We have a camper at a local campground that my parents have been camping at since before I was born, the owner has a John Deere utility tractor, and a Farmall C that he uses to pull the wagon for hay rides. When I was about 6 or 7 he'd let me sit on his lap and steer the C around while we pulled all the other kids on the haywagon. I always felt like such a badass driving the tractor which at the time felt huge. Ever since then I've wanted one in a bad way, and finally came across one locally for a price I could afford. It's rusty, but fires right up and runs. Going to shine this one up to look as good as my H and M!

Beautiful tractors!!! I am completely new to tractors, but just bought my very first Super C and I love it! One quick question, is a "fast hitch" the same thing as a single point hitch?

Thank you. Do I need to convert it then or can I find fast hitch implements fairly easily?

don't forget French C, Super FC, FCD (diesel), and 235 (with draft report hydro and 3 pt Hitch)http://lesamisdestracteurs.fr/cariboost ... _235_D.pdfhttp://www.lestracteursrouges.com/fichi ... _f_235.htm
French didn't only built their own cub, they also builts C's.

Depending on what you are looking for fast hitch implements can be as easy to find as non-fast hitch. They are a darn sight easier to work with.
