It finally got here today.
We just finished putting it together.

She’s very happy.

I just spent a concerning amount of time watching tractors stuck in mud videos.

I'm throwing off some serious old man vibes right now.

I watched one of those today too. It was a rabbit trail from Ford N series videos.

I think a Ford 9N, 2N, or 8N tractor might be in my future. The three point and standard PTO would come in handy. Now I just need to find one that is well maintained mechanically, with just the right amount of cosmetic wear, for the right price... So far the price is the hard part in this area. Everybody has a treasure.

They're vintage tractors. They all bring "fun." Keeping a piece of history alive is one of my favorite things to do though. They're simple machines though, easy to keep alive and they're still useful. When they're running well they're very fun machines.

Biggest gripes I have long term with the NAA are: 1- the lift is finicky and works best when its planets are aligned and that info is not in the shop manual, 2- first gear and reverse are too tall for a lot of tasks like garden tilling.

I had a buddy who used to restore Minneapolis Moline tractors...one every Winter. He said they were the cream of the crop...he told me there are tractors and then there is the Minneapolis Moline, in a league of their own.

There is a food truck at work today. I ordered the donut bacon cheeseburger. I expect to be useless this afternoon.
