I'm trying to deceide which one next??

Postby BigBill » Wed Sep 27, 2006 10:30 am

Ok i'm slowly finding out my International 154 Cub loboy just doesn't cut the mustard in the power department in the higher grass so i'm in need for a larger machine. I was going to look for a Farmall Cub but it has the same motor as my 154 cub so I would still be in the same boat power wise. I would still like to get a farmall cub in the future to collect one.

Whats the most PTO horsepower I can get in a smaller farmall cub sized tractor like an "A" or "SUPER A" sized machine like which smaller farmall has the most PTO HP?

Sorry i'm a little tractor ignorant at times.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

FArmall 130

Postby Ron Thomas » Wed Sep 27, 2006 10:48 am

I've got a 1957 Farmall 130. If I remember correctly the PTO horsepower is 18 to 20, about the same as the 100 and 140. I added an aftermarket 3 point hitch and pull a 4' Woods Brushbull. Mow about 8 acres of very rough stuff with it and it walks right through it.

Your right 4 isn't enough I got a really bad feeling when i purchased my first international 154 cub loboy. When i cut my grass for the first time my son said he never seen me that happy. My wish list is growing more and more and my little barn plans are growing too. My new house with 1 5/8 acres isn't enough land too. My future plans are to own a small farm so buying a farmall "H" too isn't that far away too.

I got my present house on an estate sale(cheap) so i plan on rolling it over in a few years if everything goes good. Luckily it needs some TLC like trimming trees and planting flowers along with a few mods inside I should make some extra $$ when i roll it over. I can't wait to have a small farm and drive my farmall to the back 40 and drink a coffee and read the news paper, just relax and watch the corn grow.

Yup a good wish list; Farmall Cub, Farmall A, Farmall Super A, Farmall 140, and more to follow right now its what ever comes along first thats cheap. I figured i'd get everything to run the farm now.

Get you a super A or a square hooded 140, Their plentiful with the tobacco on it's way out, and they have enough HP to run a good sized woods finish mower. I mow my yard with a IH 240 with a rear mounted 60 inch finish mower. A pull behind implement is hard to mow around things like your house and small trees, you have to be real careful. I would suggest a belly mower of some sort. Culti-Vision works to your advantage, plus the smaller turning radius. Brandon.

Ok I want to look for my next farmall after the holidays and how many tractors are within the same size as the Farmall A, Farmall Super A, Farmall 130, Farmall 140. Is there more models within that same size tractor?

I'd love to get an "H" or an "M" someday too. I need a tractor barn so i can hide them from the misses first.

Bill....there is the rarely seen 100, also, which is nothing more than a super-A with a different label on it..... Minor design changes in the 130 and 140....as in it's rare to find a 140 that doesn't have the fast-hitch.......

The A's are bigger than the cubs, by about a full 1/3, physically.... and the whole A-series has replaceable iron sleeves in the engine, making rebuilds, well......more expensive, but more do-able, generally speaking......

Getting an A with a belly mower will do the job for you.....but a super-A, with the hydraulics would be a lot more pleasant, and it's a whole lot easier finding implements for the super-A and up......

You see, the A's weren't standardized like the cubs, as far as implements went...... if you wanted say, a plow, you'd need the whole shebang, including the hand lifts and depth controls...... The hand lifts that the plows used wouldn't necessarily be usable with the cultivators.......and so forth..... I've got a sickle mower for my A, and it will take 1" saplings very nicely.....trying to lift it, however, is quite difficult.....

might want to think about a C or super C also.

Yup....EJP's right...

C's and Super-C's...... High-wheeling tricycle models of the Super-A....

Both had hydraulics, and implements seem to be a little more plentiful for them, by my observations.

They are also available with wide fronts, but that option is not too common.

I saw a derelict one of those at a tractor show this year, John, near the Jersey border. I stood and looked at it for a few minutes, kinda scratching my head, but the only possibility was a C with a wide front.

Funny you should mention that, as I'd never seen one before......

It would have been a tough decision, I guess when buying new, whether to go with a Super AV, or a C with a wide front if you needed it.......their functionality being pretty similar, I suppose.
