This tractor was purchased in 1975 by Dudley Cumper for use on Cumper Dairy Farm in Marlette, Michigan. This is a 5-bottom plow tractor that was mainly used for plowing, chopping corn, and general fieldwork and has less than 6,000 hours on it.
The motor was rebuilt about 30 years ago with new seals, bearings, converter, all three heads replaced, and rear axle. It also has dual tires.
Several years ago, it was passed down to Dudley’s son, James, where it is lovingly cared for. And although it has been retired from fieldwork for many years, the anticipation of that first significant snowfall is always a good excuse to attach the back blade and do some plowing!
Pictured are James and Darlene Cumper of Marlette, MI – one of the many pictures taken in celebration of their 60th wedding anniversary in October.
