      Here’s my tractor. Case construction king 380B. 53hp.

      She leeks oil like a sieve, but just keeps chugging. I hitched up the 7′ box blade Sunday and scraped my driveway, then turned a hill into a flat spot. Heh heh…..

      Functional and affordable. Right on.

      My brother still uses his 1949 Farmall M for mowing and raking. I’ll be using an early 50’s Ford N on Saturday to tow my deer blind into position. Things are dry and you need to keep hot exhaust pipes out of the weeds and grass.

      Yeah, when we moved to the new property last year, I found myself in need of a tractor. The prices at the local Kabota dealership just about made me laugh in the salesman’s face, and that was the cheapest option!!!

      I got on Craigslist and found this old construction tractor for less than a new zero turn mower and it came with a 7′ Massey Furgison box blade with automatic scarifiers, and a 6′ finish mower deck, plus all the service manuals.

      To which I said “heck yeah”. That’s what I call proper berm maintenance!!!!
