SA-V - 140 high crop availability?

Postby Ol Timey Farming LLC » Sun Sep 29, 2019 12:34 pm

After reading the post about SA prices, I was wondering about the high crop version. Do y'all see many, is the 130 HC also as rare as 130 to find vs SA, 100 or 140's? I've noticed here in Mississippi that most don't advertise them right. I'll see an SAV or 100 high crop but they post it as just an SA or Farmall. I think they were also more popular in Louisiana though they did plant tons of sugar cane here too. (Most SAV-High crops were used for that here) while SA was row crop.

A friend of mine has had this 130 for sale for 2 months. It’s nice, $3,200 I don’t think they are that rare, just don’t see them come up for sale as often. The high crops, you see one around here for sale about once a year and the prices are as high as the seat.

Thanks Shane, but that's not a" high crop". High Crops had the Super C rear tires and weights and the front tires were 16" to give more ground clearance (along with some other slight differences.)

That's what I'm thinking too. I've seen some here, but seems only the SA or regular (non-High Crop) are what they sell. I might need to investigate getting some 16" front wheels and a pair of SC rear wheels w/weights.

Super C wheels won't work. The AV/Super AV/other high crops used a six lug, solid wheel that bolted to the final like a regular Super A. You'd also need an industrial front axle and I believe the knee extensions on the hi crop are longer.

Thanks Al, I thought they were the same wheels, they used same tires and wheel weights so I just thought the rims were same too. I never fooled with a SC but I just looked at one and I see it has the adjustable width flange on the axle and wheel, like a dual tire big tractor. Not the hub on the axle like a car (SA).

The 130 Hi Crops are uncommon and hard to find

I just purchased my first tractor a Super A that has the large tires so I guess it is the 140?
Not sure how to tell. It was owned by cane farmer in south La.
I am in process of doing complete engine overhaul , a little water in cylinders...

No the tires and other parts make a Super A, 100, 130, or 140 into a hi crop, the hi crops had larger sized tires and clearance to mainly make sugar cane beds in LA. The Super A was then called SA-V while the 100-140's were called Hi-Crop if they had the larger tires. Look at serial # on the seat (for SA's) and on trany bell housing left hand side (if sitting on tractor). Hope this helps... They can tell the year if you can read that serial #, if not you can still get close by looking at casting #'s of parts and at the end of them is a letter, those letters refer to a year, just be careful as letters in 1955 and 1977 started back over at letter A, so there are a few years that have same letter code, but usually you can tell (like a SA with code "S" shows as a 1949 or 1971, but Super A's were NOT made in 1971 so its a "49" or "50" as parts from late 49 may have been used making either one. Hope this helped Donald...
