This month’s featured photo was submitted by Mike Smith and features his 1960 Oliver 440. One of only 700 produced, the 440 is a very rare and sought after model. They were designed to be used for cultivating tobacco fields in Virginia, Southern Pennsylvania and the Carolina’s.
“This tractor has a set of cultivators which have been removed. It was up-fitted with a 60″ Woods mower that runs off the PTO. The hydraulic lift cylinder and hoses are with it, as well as the original drawbar, front wheel weights and top link. Pretty much a complete unit. This tractor runs smoothly and is a blast to just drive around.” Mike said.
Mike plans on starting a mechanical restoration in the fall and will finish the project off with a fresh coat of paint and new decals. “We plan on keeping it as a very pretty, working tractor.” said Mike.

Above are two pictures of my son’s Farmall 350, a before and after. I bought this tractor used from a neighbor almost 50 years ago; he had bought it new in 1957.
My son learned to drive on the 350 and for sentimental reasons, he decided to buy it and have it restored / refurbished. When I retired I sold my farm equipment but I kept the 350 and a six foot mower to mow field edges and road sides. As you can see, it didn’t get a lot of TLC in the last twenty two years.
Mechanically it was sound, with a good engine, transmission and torque amplifier, but cosmetically it was ugly! I chased parts all Summer with some yet to go, but I can see the end is near. I drove it home from the paint shop on October the 18th and it was hard to believe it was the same tractor.
Steiner Tractor was a big part of this transformation.

October’s featured photo was submitted by Jason Anderson and features a 1957 Ford 900 series owned by Rich and Mary Houzner of Elroy, Wisconsin.
About 6 years ago the Houzner’s were in need of a tractor to handle some of the smaller jobs around the dairy farm. When they found this Ford tractor they liked the old style and thought it’s smaller size would make it suitable for their young boys as they started learning to operate farm equipment.
This Ford tractor has done all that and more! It’s become a family favorite to rake hay and corn stalks with and was the perfect edition to the Houzner’s all Ford / New Holland implement fleet.
