October Featured Photo

This month’s featured tractor photo was submitted by Mark Kurth of La Porte, Indiana.

“Our home is on the National Register of Historical Places in La Porte County, Indiana. Allis Chalmers (previously Rumley) was an important manufacturer in La Porte before the plant shut down in 1984. When we needed a tractor to help with restoration work on the farm, an Allis Chalmers D14 was a natural choice – being a hometown favorite. Ours has never been apart and still works as good as it did when it was built in 1957. The post-hole auger is an original AC implement.” – Mark Kurth

Wayne Shaw’s Massey Ferguson 1080
This month’s featured photo was submitted by
Wayne Shaw of Utterson, Ontario, Canada.

“The Massey 1080 took the day off from haying due to rain. After the rain stopped a rainbow formed overhead framing the tractor, which I thought would make for a pleasant picture after a soaking day.” -Wayne Shaw

1953 Farmall Super A

I am submitting this information and these photos on behalf of my Grandfather. He has worked hard his entire life to help provide for his family. He stops at nothing to give everyone the very best of him.

My name is William H. Patterson (also known as Cotton Patterson.) I am a 77 year old resident of Clay County, Alabama. I have been working in the fields and maintaining gardens since I was old enough to hold a tool and differentiate between a weed and a crop. I started at five years old and used mules until the year 1960. That was the year I was able to purchase my tractor. I worked driving a school bus until I could save up the money to purchase a 1953 Super A International Farmall from a man in Talladega, Alabama. I paid $900 for the tractor plus some equipment. I have rebuilt the engine three times and in my opinion, there is no better tractor than my international. I maintain three gardens and we grow and harvest everything from corn to watermelon. Being able to retire those mules has been one of my greatest blessings.
