In my area you can’t hardy give away a Super A or even a Cub unless you have equipment and even then you have to take a big hit. I personally took a big hit on my Super A….that really hurt because it was my Grandfathers tractor. The Cub I grew up with, which I have completely redone with all the implements’ was overlooked by a person to buy a Ford N.
A friend who repairs and rebuilds tractors for the weekend/small Farmer tells me the Ford N’s are a big hit with the live hydraulics’ installed along with the Zang thing and converted to 12 Volt ignitions. Other tractors in big demand are the M/F 135, M/F 40 Industrial Back Hoe, regular Fergusons and Kubota’s. He said the big problem with Super A’s and Cub’s is the way the implements have to be put on along with no three point hitch.
My family which farms 1500 acres uses mostly JD and some M/F. As the JD’s wear out we are going to a lease program which is New Holland and Arco (Fiat). Every three years the tractors are replaced.
