October Featured Photo

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.

September Featured Photo

September’s featured photo was submitted by Cary Bolton. This photo was chosen as a winner in our annual photo contest and will be featured in the 2019 Steiner catalog.

 

“This is a 1963 Massey Ferguson 65 tractor with multi-power. I purchased it at an estate sale. It had been rode hard and put away wet many times. I am going to split the tractor and put in the necessary seals and check the clutch. I also need to go through the hydraulic system. The tractor runs but needs a good tune-up and the exhaust system fixed. I have been looking for parts in various places but was delighted to find that the steering wheel is available new from Steiner at a price close to ones found at salvage yards. I will go with the new one! I need to do alot of work on the seat before I can order new cushions, which i’ll get from Steiner as well. I will take some more pictures and send them along after I get it going again. Before I fix this one though, I am going to work on a 1963 Massey Ferguson 50 that needs less work. Those parts will come from Steiner as well.”

August Featured Photo

August’s featured photo was submitted by Bill Adams. This photo was chosen as a winner in our annual photo contest and will be featured in the 2019 Steiner catalog.

 

Joe Tarbet, a good friend of Bill’s that restored this Oliver 550, helped Bill start collecting and restoring antique tractors. Joe found this Oliver 550 in a very dilapidated condition at a cotton gin yard near Lamesa, Texas. In its last years it had retired from plowing and was used to pull cotton trailers around the gin. Bill watched Joe restore this Oliver 550 and several years later when Joe decided to liquidate his collection, Bill was fortunate to be able to buy it.

Case 511B

1958 Case 511B


My Dad bought this 1958 Case 511B new in 1959 and it’s one of the first tractors I learned to drive. I thought it was time for some needed repairs and a new paint job. I got it finished with some parts from Steiner TractorParts. It stills runs great.

Sitting in the Shed

Setting in the Shed
Setting in the Shed – 1957 Farmall 450 Diesel

Back in college I was helping a farmer in the Summer and saw it setting in the shed, and fell in love. It was a 1957 Farmall 450 diesel with TA. He said it hasn’t run in years due to a bad injector. So I am 29 now and 2 years ago it came up for sale so my Dad and I purchased that same tractor.

I was able to find a used injector online and got it running. It needs a radiator due to a hole in the top and a few minor things like a tachometer, headlight wiring, and I did drain 15 gallons of water from the transmission. But it dyno’s at 58 hp which was enormous for a 50’s tractor. And only being produced from 1956-1958 it is rather rare.


I have always loved IH/Farmall tractor since I was little. I have recently acquired my late Grandfather’s restored 1945 Farmall H, and I know he would of loved to see what I’ve accomplished so far with the 450. And it sounds killer with a straight stack. I plan to use the tractor in parades and to use it around the farm when making hay, not work it too hard,  just enough to keep it from dying a slow death from just setting around. I feel all old equipment should have its legs stretched at least once a year.
