The 950 or the 1594? The 950 i had since 1972-73 ? I was in the first grade when we got it i think? It worked its tail off until the mid 90s when it finally gave up (no fault of the tractor) it was user induced..Sky, Tell me about your DB/Case please, Where you got it, how long you've had it, what model, etc
Thanks much, Dave
Forgot all about the MF Super 90 we had, seems like it was a high clearance but I could be wrong. Stock would run a little over 21 mph on the road which was flying back then, Dad and a neighbor turned the fuel up and turned the governor up so it was more like 26mph on the road. Never had engine problems after turning it up but could never keep the hydraulics working right, always steered okay but the rest was crap. Okay for running a silage blower or chopper though.I have a 1967 International 1300B 4x4. Built like a damn tank, durable as a tank, rides like a tank, gets the mileage of a tank but oh so fun to drive.
Anyways, had it after all grown up but my favorite is my Grandfathers 1600 Oliver diesel. Inherited that tractor so it's still around, growing up I'd have to say a Oliver 88 diesel.
A man after my own heart. A 4020 is my favorite tractor of all time...a lot of power, and a timeless, elegant look. It was the first tractor I ever drove as well; my grandpa taught me on it and it was his favorite tractor on the farm. He was a very kind and patient teacher. I still remember to this day, he had some forks on the back and I was picking up empty utility wire spools and setting them around the farm as paintball barricades for us grandkids.My favorite tractor when growing up was a JD Orchard tractor....I never got to drive one, but this is my favorite.
and this was my 2nd favorite tractor.
That's actually a great idea. The tractor is completely my Uncle's, he's spent too much time farming with his dad to ever let it get away, but would be fun to restore for him. My plan has been to restore Grandpa's old 1970 F250 farm truck for my uncle at some point. That's as close to mint as you can get as well, parked it inside for good and got a different truck after putting only 60,000 miles on it.A perfect one to be restored....family history.
Sheet metal looks excellent. You being handy with a spray gun would be a good fit for that tractor. I have seen the hood, fenders and the dash wrap clear coated and oh my gosh what a difference that can make.
