Christmas Tree Farm Farmalls

Postby tmays » Wed Dec 08, 2021 11:26 am

What deck were these tractors outfitted with? Did they use different ones? I’ve come across a pic of one with a gravely deck mounted on it. I doubt it was originally this way? Seemed like a good time of year for the question. Lol. Ive seen one at red power roundup with what appears an original deck.

One of the fellows, whose Cub I work on, has a '55 with a 42" Kub Klipper that is used in his Christmas tree farm. The Cub was purchased new and has spent its time on this farm.

That is a interesting question!

What Farmalls are you refering to?

I’m pretty sure it was an aftermarket conversion. I’ve only seen it on Super A’s, but I think they were done with C’s also. Here’s a pic of one at rpru in AL

The one I’ve seen, a couple times, I’m thinking was a modified “B”. It belongs to a gentleman in Mt. Vernon, Ohio. It was at Red Power, this year, and at our Chapter 6 state snow in Wauseon, Ohio a couple years ago. I don’t know what deck it had but I think it was similar to the one in Tom’s posted pic.

Using a 30” gravely deck you would need to put a sealed bearing on the input side. Then fab a spline drive
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
