Moderator: Team Cub
I will be posting photos of a tractor my sisters and I ran across this month while driving from NC to New Orleans. We will see how many photos it takes for someone to identify AND tell the function of this tractor! Good luck!!!
Farmall MV...used in sugar cane fields.

Looks like some type of high crop

1944 John Deere B , A-3 B-3 two way plow.....Grandpa's Deere,Still can't find his FARMALL A
OK, it is an M...Not sure about the MV:
and, according to the guys that owned it, you're close on the purpose, but not quite there!
...well, definitely "high"...
Bud knows his red iron!
I don't believe in taking the bull by the horns. I took a goat by the horns once and that was enough excitement for me.

Nice paint job!
It is a 1953 Super M with the distillate option. It has been converted to a high clearance machine, much higher than a typical MV that would have been used as a conventional cane tractor. It was probably intended as a spray rig or some similar operation.
Yes, I think someone may have used a fuzzy roller for its last paint job!!!
how about a side view or one form a distance?

I was teasing...but I guess since you already know WHAT it is, I might as well show it all (so to speak!!!):
OK, anymore guesses as to its purpose before I show the distance shots? Of course, I don't think it will help anyway...I never would have guessed!!

And to give you some idea of size:
I'm shutting down for the night...sweet dreams to you all!!! We'll see tomorrow if anyone guesses right!
I've seen that tractor before!! I've got a pic of it somewhere, if I find it I'll post it...
Purpose - farming, or maybe not. Need a better idea of where that propane line goes. Serial number suggests 1939. Vern
