Figured this would get some more attention here. Can be moved to the Perfect Picture forum if need be.

With all the fun we've been having talking about CUT's I figured I'd throw a few pictures up. Let's see yours!

These are machines I use or have sold/configured. I unfortunately do not own enough property to justify having one of these parked here full-time!


My heavy hauler with a Ford 1910 loaded up. Tractor has loader and a Woods 3pt backhoe attached. Truck said "Tractor? What tractor?!"

My little Canyon towing a Deere 4115 on a 16 ft landscape trailer. At max tow rating here, truck did pretty well for a 3.5L 5 cyl!

Deere 2305 with the 200CX, 54C, and the at the time, brand new 260 Backhoe. A combo Deere once said they would never build!

A Deere 3320 on R3 tires (tough to see in the pic), 300CX loader and 447 Backhoe. Went to a good home!

A Deere 4320 with R4's, eHydro, 400X loader and 448 Backhoe.

A personal favorite! Deere 4720 eHydro with 400CX and 448 Backhoe on Galaxy Golf/Turf Tires. That was an expensive machine!

A Kubota my buddy put together with a serious traction upgrade!

Most of mine wouldn't be considered CUT type and are, lets say....vintage.
1976 Allis hydro - the mule.
1964 CK580 backhoe (in back ground, obviously.)
1939 VC case - big mower
and to the side of that is my 194? DC Case (can't remember)
My mower is another Allis hydro (see pic 1 for reference)
Hmmm....guess I don't have a pic of my 1951 VAC Case.

Dig old iron Jags! Grew up on a working farm running 6 Farmalls, 3 H's and 3 M's. And they worked 'em as hay/wagon tractors. One M on the grinder usually. M's would handle the silage wagons pretty well too with a careful operator. Those got a little heavy!

The grinder M had antifreeze in it and the 5 others got parked for the winter and the water in them dumped. Not one of them newer than '53 and every one of them still working today. Worked a Farmall MD for a couple summers too with an International 82 combine behind it. What a beast! Tractor needed a qt of oil for "lunch" and another qt for "dinner" at the end of the day!

Please keep posting the pics....no such thing as too many tractors.

Hey MasterMechanic, I have the chance to purchase a used Kubota B2920, 60 gently used hrs (mostly mowing), 60" bucket, underbelly mower ( I have no interest in that), and 48" brush hog (TSC). Garage kept/like new. Its a little small but it maybe better in the woods. Do you have any experience w/these?

Thanks

What exactly do you want to do with it? The B2920 is a great size to do a lot of mowing and a little FEL work. B Series machines are a little on the light side so ballast up if you need to pull heavy or do FEL work near it's max. They are good machines but there have been owner complaints about the "little things" that you live with after the sale. I have no issue with them mechanically however. At 60 hours it's still a new tractor IMO.

Here's a link you should check out.

I have 22 acres and I brush hog about 8. I would like to skid logs out of the woods or trailer logs out. (Currently I am using my Honda Foreman). I would like to get a york rake to mend the driveway after plowing all winter. Pretty much just homeowner type work around the house.

Hoggin' 8 acres with a 4 ft rotary cutter is going take awhile. Up to you if you have/are willing to take that time. Maybe not a big deal if you only do it 2-3 times a year.

I would like to upgrade to a 5' if I get it. I currently use a 42" brush hog I tow behind the atv.

Any pics of the tractor/groomers from The County? . . . I've seen a few pics of some and they're massive (I think Washburn has a very large one.)

Here's mine, mid 50's Oliver super 55. Needs an injection pump, I'm looking at around 900.00 ouch. I use it for plowing, discing, brush cutting, snow removal, wood hauling, etc. Even though it has it's bugs, it's my baby. Don't know what I would do without it.

SAWWEEETTT! I love old Ollies. Who said it would cost nine bills for a pump fer that tractor? Should be an easy rebuild in the right hands.

I've spoke with J a few times over the phone. The problem with my pump it's an American Bosch, they quit building parts for them. The tractor will start off either, but won't restart hot. From what I'm told it needs a new head, it's got a bad plunger. The cheapest pump I found rebuilt was 900. A used pump was 300 or more. I had 3 3/4 big bore kit put in it, so it's got a little more HP than stock. The engine is a later 550 diesel engine that's had bearings, sleeves, pistons, etc. put into it.

Super 55 are awesome! My avatar is an oliver 550 gas with powersteering. I blew up the vickers vein hydaulic pump on mine. Only 700 bucks! These old tractors are hard to get parts for. Perkins dies in the 55?

They have Waukesha diesels in them, with 2 different injection pumps. When I was driving the tractor home it spun a bearing and a main busted. The tractor came with a rebuild kit, so I found a later 550 block for it. There's a man named Kent Gordon that sells parts out of Texas. He has just about everything you can think of. I bought an upgraded vickers vain pump for the tractor and a lift cylinder and piston for around 150.00. I told my wife if I ever get the money I may look into getting a 550 that's been restored with loader. I believe my tractor is around 45-47 HP after the rebuild. So much more on these old 55-550 olivers than any n series ford could offer. I don't know about the gassers, but the diesels sip fuel.
