Well, outher then the old Bready built Homelite garden tractor,[I loved that tractor, wish I could find anouther] My first was an old Farmall "C" that my dad had. Had a fail mower on the back. I was not suposed to be driving it, but you know how kids can be./w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif

I don't remember, but it was almost certainly Dad's '49 John Deere B, and probably pulling a hay wagon while my older brothers loaded the bales.

First Tractor I drove was a Deutz D 5506, but only a few Meters. My first own Tractor was a Hanomag Granit, 38 HP from 1964.

First tractor that I ever drove was an Allis Chalmers WD-45 wide front. Grandpa spent many hours teaching me to drive and be safe on that tractor. He still has that tractor and they use it to rake with now.

Tractor
Case-IH Farmall 45A, Kubota M8540 Narrow, New Holland TN 65, Bobcat 331, Ford 1920, 1952 John Deere M, Allis Chalmers B, Bombardier Traxter XT, Massey Harris 81RC and a John Deere 3300 combine, Cub Cadet GT1554
The WD 45 has got to be my favorite tractor of any. I used it to disc with a couple years ago and had a ball. Still regret selling it but it happens. My first tractor to drive on my own was a MF 135 and the only thing I ever did with that was chop fields.
