Loved that tractor, hated to see it leave, I just didn' have the room - neither tractor [Oliver 1755 nor the IH574] never saw rain while I owned them - changed Oil every year, all the routine maintennace kept up - someone is going to get a gr8 tractor for sure - basically used for haying and that was it - occasional plowing/fitting/planting every 6-7 years w/ the Ollie -That is why I am jonesing about owning a new tractor - I stressed about keeping my 1969 and 1972 tractors looking gr8, now I have to keep the NH in gr8 shape!
