Every tractor has a story

The preservation of old agricultural machinery keeps our heritage alive, says Marlborough Vintage Farm Machinery Society curator John Burnett.

The club was started in 1965 and now has about 200 old tractors on display at Brayshaw Park, Blenheim. One of them, a 1954 McCormick Farmall tractor, was restored last month and is looking brand new.

The job took 130 hours, says Spring Creek engineer Trevor Collins, and he did it for free. He is semi-retired and wanted to thank the club for loaning him old machinery parts to replicate other restorations.

Love for work-willing International tractor starts young

LIKE many enthusiasts who fall for the work-willing International tractors, Geoff McClelland’s devotion began when he was a child.

He grew up on a mixed sheep and cropping business in Bealiba — in the Central Goldfields Shire — and was introduced to Internationals when his brother bought one, some 50 years ago.

Geoff, at 68, isn’t so young that he cannot recall feeding the animals with a horse and cart, and remembers the difference the International, or indeed any of their early tractors, made on the family farm.

Iowan's stolen Farmall 1206 tractor recovered in Minnesota

Today's dose of good news: Iowa's most notorious tractor, stolen from a warehouse in Mason City, has been recovered intact in Minnesota.

Tractor guru Randy Hinton, who now owns and operates 10 Red Power Case IH dealerships across northern Iowa, was robbed of his prized tractor, a 1965 International Harvester Farmall 1206 that was the 11th to roll off the assembly line. Hinton offered a $20,000 reward for its return and blanketed the region and collectors' magazines with an Old West-style "wanted" poster.

320 Acres, a Mule, a Farmall Cub… and a little dynamite.

By Dennis L. Raney

World War II had just ended and our noble veterans were returning home, finally. My Navy veteran grandfather, Jefferson L. Raney, wanted to settle down in the area where he was raised; Mt. Sherman, Arkansas or as many people back in the day, used to refer to it as Raney Mountain. It is located in northwest Arkansas, just south of Jasper. Great grand parents, Harvey and Alice Raney, homesteaded and raised a family of thirteen children in a beautiful hand build two story home on the side of the old rugged mountain.

For $1.00 per acre, Jefferson purchased 320 acres of prime mountain top. The stipulation of homesteading was that you must live and develop the land for five years and it’s yours 100%. Since it was total wilderness (trees and rocks), he would spend half of the year working in Kansas City (mainly for the railroads) and the other half living and working on the homestead; that satisfied the requirement for maintaining a residence on the property.

The first thing he built was two small one room cabins and a barn. Sadly, the cabins burned down many years later in a lightning strike; but by that time, they were used mainly for storage. Although, my brother and I did spend many a night sleeping in one of them when we would have family visits in the 1950’s. It was both cool and creepy since we had to walk a long dark path to the cabin each night at bedtime with dimly lit flashlight.

Once he established his cabins, the next chore was to start clearing a large 40 acre field for hay. This would provide grass for a few milk cows. The excess milk and cream could be sold or traded along with the butter from churning the cream. He would keep a few chickens for eggs, several goats for milk and their excellent brush eating abilities, and as many hogs as he could maintain for meat and later to sell at the auction.

Paquette's Historical Farmall Museum in Leesburg chock full of restored tractors

LEESBURG — Paquette's Historical Farmall Museum is a Lake County original.

So unique, in fact, that it's featured on RoadsideAmerica.com, an online guide to offbeat attractions. On the site it's described as "an impressive, completely-out-of-nowhere private collection of Farmall Tractors and International Harvester machinery" displayed in a couple of warehouses "in the middle of Florida farm country."
