Hello from Melbourne

Postby MelbourneChris » Mon Sep 13, 2021 7:44 am

Hi, once lockdown 6.0 is over here I'll be the proud owner of a Farmall AV.
Curious if there are other owners in Melbourne or Australian on here.
Cheers

Hi Chris, welcome to the forum. Paul is from around Sydney. His forum name is goxu1.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Welcome to the Forum!

Take some time and read through a few threads to acquaint yourself with the Forum:

Now that you’ve logged your 2nd post on the Forum, you'll have access to the all the PDF Manuals on this site. There’s a few ways to do that:
  • From a desktop or laptop, go to "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals".
  • You can also go to “Cub Info” in the upper toolbar, then hit “Rudi’s Manuals”. From there, you can access a variety of information.
  • If you're using a phone, go to the "Links Directory" (second category down the main page). Once in "Links Directory" , scroll down to the second section "Tractor Parts & Manuals" and you'll find them there.

You'll be able to download an Owner's Manual.

Might also enjoy reading through this thread (even though it’s for a Cub, much can be applied to any tractor just brought home): What to do with a Cub you just brought home

I bought a Farmall AV and did some work to it a year or so ago. If interested, you can check it out here: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=170&t=95457&hilit=Farmall+AV

We’d encourage you to take the Safety Test located in the Safety Forum: http://farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=68084

Take some pictures of your tractor and post them, we’d like to see them.

Remember:
  • Pictures are limited to 500 KB file size. Use an image reducer app or program to downsize pics.
  • When you have a specific question, start a new thread in the appropriate sub-forum.
  • Before posting, use the Preview button before hitting Submit--it'll show you exactly what your post will look like, including pictures.
  • When adding your comments to a thread, be sure to look at the date of the last poster. If it’s more than a 6 months old, the posters are probably not going to see it. Consider starting a new thread.

Glad you joined us.

Welcome to the forums. Although I reside in the US, my Brother-in-law and his family live in Mitcham, he doesn't have any tractors though. I have visited the area a few times and on the last trip I seen some older IH equipment around the Yarra Valley area. I have a friend named Henry in Gisborne who has several Farmall tractors and quite a collection of IH equipment. I can put you two in contact with each other if you don't already know him.

I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.
