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.
This photo was chosen as a winner in our annual photo contest and will be featured in the 2019 catalog.
