“I have had this 1949 Farmall Cub for more than 30 years. In 1983 I built my house on a 3.5 acre lot. Funds were tight due to construction, but my father gave me his old 8 HP lawn mower to use. This worked, but I usually cut grass for 2 days, and needed something bigger. A local man offered this tractor with the Woods mower deck already attached. What a difference this made. 30 later, I still use it weekly during the mowing season.”
“Thanks to Steiner tractor parts, I have been able to keep this running and in good shape. I just retired (at age 70) this year, and plan to keep the tractor running as long as I am able. Thank you again for the many years of support I have received from Steiner!” -Bob Reavis.
“Pictured is my 801 Ford Powermaster. I inherited this little workhorse from my father when I bought a farm from him. He’d picked it up in well used condition to have something to mow with. For him, it was a sentimental purchase – the 801 was what he used on the farm as a kid with his brothers and my grandfather. He said he remembers getting the exhaust red hot they worked it so hard and it never let them down. My son made the 801 a feature for one of his high school senior pictures because it fits that iconic and country style that only a good ol’ farm tractor can do.”
“Steiner helped me get the steering box repaired and a few other pieces fixed up to keep her going for many more years. Many thanks for your time and my sincere thanks to Steiner for a GREAT catalog and help keeping parts available for the tractor world.” – James Thompson of Marshall, Missouri

“Our family always has a tractor day in October. Three generations of our family come together to share their love of old John Deere tractors and the great outdoors. We have fun driving the John Deere’s around the countryside and enjoy listening to the mechanical music of the old two-cylinder engines and appreciating the beautiful Fall colors of the trees. Of course, it would not be October without fresh sugar-cinnamon donuts and Apple Cider after the ride. The stars of the event are a 1953 John Deere 50 and a 1959 John Deere 530.”

“This is our 1948 CO-OP E3 that is within a few serial numbers, and identical to the one, that mechanized maternal grandfathers family farm in May of 1948. It took 7 years to find one that fit the bill and almost 2 years to restore it. The tractor underwent a complete nut and bolt restoration from 2017 to 2019, in honor of the late Gerald M. Sales of Clarissa / St Cloud, Minnesota, bringing in a new era of farming. One of the finest examples of an early E3.”-Oscar Ginz

“This 1935 John Deere was purchased by my parents in December of 1934 at Brink Implement in Edgerton, Minnesota. They traded four draft horses in order to complete this purchase. The tractor came from the factory with four steel wheels. My dad refitted the tractor to rubber tires and new rims one year later. A Behlen 5th and 6th gearbox was added later. This enabled the tractor to have a relatively high road speed for that era. This tractor has always remained in the Walhof family.”
March’s featured tractor photo was submitted by Ivan Beyeler of Leo, Indiana.
“This Cockshutt was purchased in Sterling, Ohio in 1957 by my wife’s father. I began dating her in 1962 and they were still using it. Her father passed away in 1969, and the tractor was sold at that time.
Jump ahead to 1988, when one of my wife’s cousins saw a tractor that he thought looked like theirs sitting in a field near Cleveland, Ohio. My wife’s brother, who was living near Middlebury, Indiana, went to investigate. He was able to identify it as their tractor (from a photo in 1966) showing a large y-shaped scar on the nose cover and the placement of a fire extinguisher on the left side.
My wife’s brother bought the tractor and took it back to Middlebury, Indiana and had the engine repaired. He moved to Colorado in 1992, and that’s when I received the tractor to finish the restoration.
I went through 4 different buyers of the tractor to track down the original wheels, which I found and bought back from someone in Mt Vernon, Ohio. One of the first buyers of the tractor had sold the wheels and put Oliver wheels on it.
Well, my intentions were good, but it has been sitting in my shop since, so last Fall I decided it was “Now or Never” to restore it. I finished it during the Covid-19 outbreak last April. It will now go to our daughter and son-in-law who live near West Liberty, Ohio. They live on a farm there and will be able to show the tractor at Fairs and Shows.”
