Finally got a Tractor

A 1951 Ford 8N to be exact. Disregard the “Grizzly” stickers, someone just stuck those on and they will be gone soon. These things were made between 1947 and 1952. Runs great but needs front tires. I will have to find a used 5 foot brush hog, ( a rotary mower that will cut through 3″ saplings) but it did come with a blade, a plow, and a drag-bar with trailer hitch for implements. Parts are widely available and there are whole forums and clubs dedicated to restoring and using these machines. For reference, here is a photo of a restored one. Restoring it will make a nice winter time activity.

Here is the new toy.
