New to me 130

Thu Feb 02, 2012 1:54 pm

I picked this up a couple sundays ago runs great was pretty close to home. No breaks or welds except for the welds below the front axles I will be looking for some new ones. But I rarely see 100s or 130s around here and am hoping to someday have the complete line for 57

Really looks good! It still looks funny to me to see a 100,130, or 140 without a fast hitch....

I know I wish it had a fast hitch might try to find one but I know they are pretty expensive.

Looks good MO :{_}:

The 130's are my favorite tractor. I have a std 130 and a industrial 130 and love them both.

Love.

That's a strong word there Cowboy.

I heard about this book called "Tractors - And the Men Who Love Them"

Hope all is well.

Thanks Ed

Things are moving along. Can't wait to get things tied up around the house so I can get back to the farm.

Hope all is well with you my friend.

Dumb question from a complete novice on the number series. Was the 130 the last of the "round hood" classic tractors? The 140 has a square-nose...correct?

Thanks!

I can confirm the 140 has a square hood. I am not sure if there were any more round hood tractors after the 140 came out.

The 100/130 were styled like the 300/400 and 350/450. The 140 was styled (initially) like the 460/560. Later on, they revised the grille slightly to make the 140 resemble more like a 706 or a early-ish 656. But yes, the 140 had a "square" nose, but retained the teardrop-shaped gas tank that goes all the way back to the '39 A.... :D
