    Default Hello to the group I just got my first tractor

    Well I went out and paid a deposit on a Farmall today. I have a few questions of course. What type of tractor is this with two PTO shafts in the rear one for running a small bushog and the other was said to running a belt drive to operate other belt driven equipment. I got the numbers on the lower right hand of the engine which were 8638 DA and the left side not owning it yet I did not start scrapping gunk off of it. I was shown it has all of the attachments for the small plows under the tractor and a set of disc harrows and a small bush hog maybe 3 foot wide. I drove the tractor and it had plenty of power all gears worked but the clutch needs adjustment I think (Hope). I can tell you it had a left and right brake pedal and the magneto was still on it and worked also. I did remeber it has spoked type wheels on the front not solid like the rear rims were. The whell weights were also on the rear. Overall I bought it to plow my small gadren and the bushog was a plus as the local guys are killing me on the price of bushogging. Any ideas on if any information helped narrow it down.

    Hi,

    It's a Farmall A.. built from around 1939 to about 1952.

    Probably want to poke around Yesterday's Tractor website Yesterday's Tractors :: Index and the Farmall forum in particular.

    Don't know about bush hogging with one... haven't ever seen a bush hog mounted to an A (and I see manual lift rather than hydraulics so I wouldn't recommend it). Probably a better idea to use a belly mower and cut often enough to not need the "bush hog" effect of cutting oversized stuff.

    Will plow gardens sell..

    I do not know much about the classic farmalls but they have a big following and they were well built machines. That machines looks like it has potential.

    Thanks for the information. I had not know many people who used these little tractor other than people with large gardens. I have about a 3 acre garden so for me I think I will use it for manily that purpose. I wish I had taken a picture of the bush hog but I checked it out nothing rusted gears worked and the whells were moved from the side to both being in the rear of the deck. The guy who had it before the present owner was a tree farmer and used the bush hog to cut between the trees. Thanks for the warning on the bush hog. I am going to try it after I clean it up and change out the u joint that had play in it. Adios

    Hey funny story sort of the guy I bought it from had the horses brought from out west to the deep south many years ago. He rides the horses in those renactments of civil war stuff very cool horse. As we were leaving the horse just stood in the way until he got his treat and wandered off. I am not a horse man myself but the horse was cool. I stick with animals I can eat like goats chicken pigs and cows. I have heard horse meat is good but have not got that hungry. Adios thanks for the tractor comment this is a long journey for me. I have already scored an attachment for the Farmall I got the buzz saw attachemnt that is driven by the PTO. Now if I can find a small hammer mill close to me in South Carolina I am set.
