Old, But Still Living a Productive Life... Posted by Doug Chappelle on 04/06/2013

I am still relatively new to the tractor ownership life. I had 85 acres to take care of with very little money for equipment purchases. I bought this 8N because it was inexpensive. I must admit, although it is 62 years old and it is definitely not a looker, it is one tough machine.

It runs very well with a lot of power for its age. Obviously, it would be nice to have a live PTO and other modern benefits, but for the price and size, it works very well for me.
