Fleet of Farmalls!

Postby Joe in Grassy Creek » Thu Dec 06, 2007 7:54 am

One of the guys on the Moto Guzzi board that I visit lives in Rochester, NY and posted these pictures of the towns fleet of snow plows. They arn't Cubs. I don't know my Farmalls well enough to identify them, but I know a lot of you guys can. I thought you guys would enjoy the pictures.

That looks like a whole fleet of M's one picture you can see a decal. That is pretty neat. It has got to be a very cold job very very cold.

Looks like some sheet metal from the number series in the pictures too. There must be a variety of tractors in the line-up.

I like the vinatage original IH Windbreakers on those tractors!

It is nice to see original iron still being used on a regular basis!

The interesting thing is that although they all seem to have windbreakers, not one has a cab. Brrrrrrrrr.....

Actually, once the tractor warms up, it is quite toasty. However, the wind coming from the fan until that point is worse than without the heat houser.

We had a heat houser on our tractors (first an M named Hector, later a 400 named Herman) when I was growing up. In the winter we used them to move round bales around. My dad had a set of spikes made to fit into the quick hitch. We'd drop the spikes so they were level, back into the side of the bale, then lift it up and move it into the yard for the cows.

Angle of the steering shaft in some of the pictures suggests H to me.

You may be right. I originally thought M's and 400 series (450 emblem visible on one). But after looking at them again, the pic of the rear of the one where you can see a street chart, the differential looks too small to be an M. I think it is a combination of H's, M's and 400 series.

I guess my Cub would be out of place with that group.

Maybe out of place, but with that windscreen, it at least looks a little warmer!
