The location offers easy access from the main A90 Dundee to Aberdeen trunk route and there is plenty of local accommodation. Fifteen vintage and classic tractors will be entered as well as a large range of vintage ploughs, hay making and cultivation equipment. There will also be a considerable quantity of plough metal including Massey Harris and Ransome parts. Other spares and workshop and estate maintenance equipment is also up for auction. This tractor is fully restored and is an excellent runner and carries the serial number Three flambeau red tractors feature with the first being a model D which George uses for ploughing. It is thought to date from and it carries several hallmarks of the very early D series tractors, with a C type back end and gear and clutch levers but is fitted with a four speed gearbox. There is provision for side brakes and the tractor is thought to have originated in the south of England and arrived fitted with Fordson wings. Another Case back end with similar tale is also listed in the sale, leads to the question were these tracked Case tractors for military purposes in an earlier life and converted back to wheeled machines for agricultural use after the war.

Here, an Advance Rumely hp steam-engine tractor was certainly a formidable piece of equipment, but not very practical. The sound is very impressive. What sold me on my first old farmstead weren’t so much the overgrown fields begging to produce again, the sucker-filled but still-bearing fruit trees, or the antique stone house and barn The tractor was a gorgeous little Farmall “A,” its paint shiny bright red, original decals intact, the huge lugged tires barely worn, and the muffler just rusted enough to look serious.

Origin hypotheses[ edit ] A traditional hunter-gatherer society in Wyoming, Scholars have developed a number of hypotheses to explain the historical origins of agriculture. Studies of the transition from hunter-gatherer to agricultural societies indicate an antecedent period of intensification and increasing sedentism ; examples are the Natufian culture in southwest Asia, and the Early Chinese Neolithic in China.
Current models indicate that wild stands that had been harvested previously started to be planted, but were not immediately domesticated. An abundance of readily storable wild grains and pulses enabled hunter-gatherers in some areas to form the first settled villages at this time. List of food origins Sumerian harvester’s sickle, 3, BC, made from baked clay Early people began altering communities of flora and fauna for their own benefit through means such as fire-stick farming and forest gardening very early.
An example is the semi-tough rachis and larger seeds of cereals from just after the Younger Dryas about 9, BC in the early Holocene in the Levant region of the Fertile Crescent. Monophyletic characteristics were attained without any human intervention, implying that apparent domestication of the cereal rachis could have occurred quite naturally. Similar ploughs were used throughout antiquity. Agriculture began independently in different parts of the globe, and included a diverse range of taxa.
At least 11 separate regions of the Old and New World were involved as independent centers of origin. Pigs were domesticated in Mesopotamia around 11, BC. Area 3 is no longer recognised as a centre of origin, and Papua New Guinea not shaded was identified more recently.
The most common were pickup trucks. IH made light trucks from to The final light line truck was made on May 5,
By , the Farmall F had served International Harvester loyally, but underneath the glitzy red paint that the company began applying to its tractors two years prior, was a design dating back to the original battleship gray Farmall.

An index of the several hundred vintage vehicle photographs featured on the site. Master index of the vintage motoring gallery. The vintage transport photos in this section of the site are now spread over 18 pages. In an attempt to make some kind of sense of them all, I’ve listed them on this one page, in alphabetical order.
Farmall Tractor Serial Numbers. Here are the serial numbers for all of the Farmall Letter Series Tractors. Farmall Super M. Prefix Letters: F-SM.
The company’s roots lie in the farm equipment developed by Cyrus McCormick, which morphed in the early s into International Harvester when McCormick’s son merged his father’s business with other agricultural machinery manufacturers. Along with agriculture implements and, later, the iconic, Raymond Loewy-designed Farmall tractor, International Harvester got into the truck business, producing a diverse range of medium- and heavy-duty work vehicles.
They also built light-duty pickup trucks from the early s and the Travelall wagon from the s. When the Jeep’s no-nonsense, all-terrain utility stuck a chord with post-war ranchers, fire departments, utility companies and others whose professions didn’t necessarily include paved roads, International Harvester took notice and developed the Scout. Like vintage Ford Broncos and early Chevy Blazers, Scouts are growing in popularity with enthusiasts and collectors.
They’re much more affordable than muscle cars of the same era, while offering distinction that’s sure to be noticed at a car show or cruise event.
Antique International / Farmall Tractor: Farmall B
The seat and steering is still offset to the right like the Model A. I have a Farmall B for sale, starts and runs nice, needs some work, brakes are weak, and there is minor damage to radiator cowling and hood. Will deliver for a price About to start working on my B Farmall. Exhaust stack rotted off years ago and the engine is all froze up.
Re: dating farmall H without serial numbers in reply to K Wassell, Chassis serial and engine serial don’t match, but they may be close. Best way is to look at the casting codes in the form of 1*8*J, or month*day*year.
If the experience of our family is any clue, the Farmall H seems to occupy a unique position in the history of tractor-powered farming. However, following the war, and especially into the s, they seem to have been very quickly replaced by tractors which could handle three-bottom plows and four-row cultivators. Production figures seem to support this conclusion, indicating that production of the H fell off after The Farmall H was introduced in and, although the tractor continued in production through and into , it seems to have served as the primary tractor on a lot of farms for only the very short period of time from to After this time the H was relegated to a secondary role on the farm.
The primary role was taken by three-plow tractors, like the Farmall M. The F had a reputation for bulkiness, awkwardness and being hard to handle. Because the M was thought to be the successor to the F , sales of the M were not all that they could have been in the early years of production. This may have inflated the sales of the H which was the successor to the very popular F This farm was known in the area as the Bagan farm; however, in the farm was owned by A.
Though the farm would be legally transferred on March 1, , the agreement was actually reached in the late summer of The family moved down to the farm and stayed about 10 days in August of to do some fall plowing. In the front is the George Wells Farmall H hitched to the wagon. This picture was taken in November of during the soybean harvest on he Hanks farm.

The storing of forage in a silo to cure into ensilage became popular in the United States in the s. To mechanize that process, the stationary silo filler was invented. Silo fillers started out as complicated machines which chopped bundles of green corn plants and piled the chopped corn into stacks to be elevated into silos. Eventually, stationary silo fillers were modified and simplified to a single-stage machine which chopped corn into the appropriate size and then blew the ensilage up a large pipe for distribution inside a silo, all in one step.
This was the stationary silo filler as it is most commonly known.

C-Farmall Well, I have worked on it some this week, and am proud to say she wears a new coat of paint. I had to fix a couple dents and make some brackets for the nose piece. I bought it with the sheet metal next to it and didn’t really pay much attention then, but when I started to put the nose on the holes didn’t line up. The nose fits and looks fine till you stoop down and look in the hand crank hole and see that it doesn’t line up with the crankshaft. I have the decals , muffler, and seat cover on order from Valu-bilt, should be here next week, and I picked up the steel for the 3PH this morning.
I looked at it real good and the 3PH is going to be simple to build. I’m going to make it bolt on so it can be removed if need be, so I can paint it seperately. I looked at it good and it doesn’t have a water pump. The brake and clutch pedals are cast and have a slight curve, not much, and the brake housing is stamped, not cast. I will post some pics of the new paint in a day or so and will update on the 3PH as soon as I start on it.
I’ll keep a list of the cost of the material for the 3PH in case anyone wants to do one sometime, it will be considerally cheaper than any aftermarket ones I’ve seen.
