1948 Farmall M

Here are some pictures of my 48 M, she's not much to look at, but will do everything I ask of her around the ranch, and at a fraction of the cost of a new tractor

Gotta like it. Never spent much time on an M, but gobs of time on a DC similar to yours.

I have quite a lot of seat time on a 1951 M. When I first drove it I had to slide forward on the seat and push as hard as I could to push in the clutch. It looks good to me. Decent metal and yes they can do a lot. Vern

Nice wide front M. Looks like it's still earning its keep around your farm.

Thanks for sharing the photos.

Yes it does, gave her a workout today mowing the east pasture. Got me to thinking, I bet none of these newer machines will still be working and earning their keep when they're 72 years old

Nice old tractor...they just keep on ticking...I also really like the bush hog...I have a Corsicana tow behind for the Super C and they work well together. It is alot for her to pick up and go across town.
