Really old school tractor prOn

I’ve been hooked on tractors probably since seeing my very first one. And while I do like the old ones and the restored ones as much as old restored hotrods n’ motorbikes n’ guns, I really love watchin’ 'em working-just as their builders intended!
I just stumbled across this vid and felt the need to share. Hope you enjoy:

I just finished a seat overhaul on an old one my sister acquired when they bought a house this summer. Bro in law cuts the grass with it every week.

Vintage tractor pull

Also check out episodes of Victorian Farm, Edwardian Farm and Wartime Fram for other classic and vintage equipment. Good watch and learned some good knowledge from them.

It set a new world record! I thought this was a vintage steam engine-it ain’t! Well, when Case built 9 of them, they used 'em up and scrapped them all. Talk about a labor of love-this thing was hand built!
