Super C and Farmall H

Postby Hairy Moose Knuckles » Sun Apr 26, 2009 11:34 am

If you compare these two tractors, which one is more versatile? I want to plow and mow mostly. I've been on an H and I love it, but I found a good buy on a Super C. I will want to convert to 3 point pretty soon.

It would be a close call but the super C is smaller than the H and would work well for both plowing and mowing. If it is a good deal I'd have to really consider it as a first choice.

A Super "C" is easy to install a 3 pt. hitch on using both side of the hydraulic lift. Mine will lift a 800 Lb. round bale, but it is hard to keep the front end on the ground.
The "C" uses less gas than a "H".
Best,
Mike

I bought the Super C. I thought long and hard. This man also had a M, but I stuck with the Super C. He is delivering to me this evening. I gave him 1400.00 for tractor and Shredder. It ain't painted and purty yet though.

you bet, my wife took some pictures as it was being delivered and I will post them tonight. I'm having some starting problems at the moment. The fellow had it running when it was delivered and he backed it off the trailer and we parked it. After he left, I went out and it started right up and I drove it around the yard for 10 minutes or so and then I got off it and went in the house for a couple of minutes and went inside. I came back out, and tried to start it and it wouldn't start. I put some gas in and tried to start it again, but it wouldn't. Same thing today. I haven't messed it much today cause it is raining. I will charge the battery and try again. I don't know much about 6 volt, so I will be learning as I go.
