ok, quick question from the corn belt,
why did they have all this fancy art deco style metal on them? for apples? etc

They had the sheet metal over the fenders , engine area & the exhaust runnig low so they would not damange the limbs on the trees or damage the tractor.
The limbs would just glide past the tractor w/o damage to anything in its path.
Hope this help.

Ok now this Orchard has to be one of the earlier ones from the mid 30's and is very sweet indeed. Thanks go to Bill the Builder for this pic from a few yrs ago of his fathers O-12 I stumbled upon in the photo host.

My 2 boys & I have recently joined the local historical artifacts group and while poking around through the tractor sheds have come across an O-4 and a rare 1934 W12 on steel which we hope to be able to play with as they are both rummored to be running 8)
I am amazed that a Tractor made in Wisconson in 34 has some how ended up here on an Island 3000 miles away from its birth place

Is that an orchard model or is it the UDX. combination tractor car. very collectible either way.

Matt:

Will try this again. Posted twice in Firefox yesterday.. both times.. Firefox lost farmallcub.com.. :big give up:

Anyways, I googled O6-Orchard Tractors and found a few interesting items. Yesterday's Firefox search was more productive :big what:



Found this one on :eBay: ... international orchard 06 tractor lights and brackets

Image

This guy seems to have a lot of O-6 Parts.. :roll:

Cannot seem to generate the same search results. Will try again, as there were dozens of pics of O-6's yeterday. :roll: :(
