My friend’s father bought my 8N when it was new – he was the original owner. He farmed with it on his family’s homestead in Missouri for many years until he bought a new tractor. My friend moved away but returned later in life and began farming and blacksmithing on the homestead. He brought that 8N back to life and used it for several years until he was too sick to use it. He offered it to me as he knew I wanted to begin a small farm. He had also seen several of my restoration projects so he knew I would take good care of it. I’m not sure where it will go from here but it will be well cared for.
