The Windolph is an old dozer built in Portland OR in the fifties. It is similar to the Struck Magnatracs which are still built. The Taylor was a American designed Chinese dozer which was the precursor of machines like the Nortrac and Montana. This machine was built about 1980.

The Chicago Pneumatic is an old air compressor with a flathead, abandoned in the upper Baron Basin near Harts Pass WA

2 Tractors For Sale
Located in Rescue
$4,400 takes both tractors.
Massey Ferguson 40 with loader and box scraper -Runs GREAT-
Massey Ferguson 3165 stuck in gear and needs battery (I have not tried to fix it). On this tractor it is PROBABLY an easy fix (half a day or less).

We purchased these tractors in April for more than I'm asking. We did not buy a piece of property we were looking at so we no longer need them. My experience using them is limited because of the short time of ownership/property. Both are diesel. I have not tried to start the 3165 -needs a battery-. The 40 is a runner, it fires right up and runs smooth. Really, they just need to start being used. They look a bit rough because they've been sitting.

I'd like them to be gone by the end of the weekend.
Thanks.

Two weeks in Michigan and Wisconsin almost tractored me out!

I know it says "No Passing Zone" but I got out-voted.
Well, to be honest it was a flat out veto.



But these two were pretty boss...


You can see this dude was jonesing big time! He is also, obviously, a connoisseur.

A fleet of Fords with some others mixed in, all from the same orchardist.

If you are sold on something, stick with it.

And a Ford is still cheaper than you can afford.

There's a good chance I know/knew the farm and/or owner of that rig, from maybe 20 years ago.

Oliver says to Ferguson, "If you keep your Cockshutt, you might not get a Deere John letter".

Couple of rigs, in situ for time out of mind, on my way over to North Cornflake.

Allis.


And this excellent hunk of metal that many of you NE'ers have driven by, I expect.
