They were also used for crop cultivation. Lots of H/M highcrops in sugarcane country from what I can gather.

Elevation isn't what counts in WV. It' all the up's and down's you do to get anywhere. You can drive 50 miles heading due east, west etc. and not be over 20 miles from home as the crow flies. :-) :-) Grump

Lot's of neat tractors Yogie! I've seen a couple MV's...it would take a lotta guts to drive one of those around here. I love the Funk Ford's...they are just flat out fun to drive, crazy horsepower. I'm a little curious about the Super M though...it has an old style widefront end...and old style front hubs. If the tractor is indeed the last Super M, then I'd put it back the way it's supposed to be.

I hear ya' on the ups and downs too. My mailbox is 1/4 mile away, and I drop almost 700 feet to get there!

I didn't notice the difference Dusti, the only M I'd ever seen was Mr E's when he picked it up in Ohio. I've only seen 1 H, just not Farmall country in my area.
I really liked the MV's and told the owner that if we had one of those up here everyone in the state would come by to see it.
I wish I'd taken time to set on it to see the view.... Maybe next Fall when I go back down. :{_}:

My guess would be to get attention. Somebody got tired of just redoing tractors and had seen several of the "twin" versions of whatever tractor (You know the twin IH A or the twin C or the IH H attached alongside a John Deere H) and wanted to see if they could do a triple.
