    Brings back MANY Memories of my childhood... I learned to drive on one of those tractors... Grew up cutting hay with MowerBar attachment, every summer, and then windrowing it with a towed Hay Rake, and stacking it in the barn with a overhead Trolley Hay Fork, loose, after it dried in the fields for a week or two... As kids we played tag in the Barn Rafters, and using the Hay Stack as our Safety Net, if we fell... Oh man, I haven’t thought about those times in DECADES... 60 years ago... Whew...

    I too grew up on one of those. We had two of them, a 1952 A and a real early 60s 140. My preference was the A. I must have a jillion miles on it mowing in the citrus groves. I started working for my dad at 12 years old, 1962 making big money... 50 cents an hour.

    My dad started paying me $5.00 day at age 9. He thought a day was 14 hrs long in the summer so every 14 hrs I made $5.00. Boy I wish I could go back to those days,.15 cent .22 shells,$5.00 went a long ways.

    I used Grampas tractor just like that to plow his fields way back when . Sometimes he'd let me use it to go down to the pond to fish . Used a sickle mower on it to mow the ditch banks . Didn't get paid for it , just loved doing it . And like ya'll , wish I could go back to them days .
