Looks like those are working or ready to work or pull. Good to see a group of tractors well done without being over done with the extra shiny automotive paint.

Like John said, those look like they get cleaned up to go to town for a visit,
but still earn their keep helping out on the farm. My kindda tractors. ;)

All those were about to be used in a tractor pull that was being set up behind me. I didn't stay long enough to see who won, I ran out of time.

I'd have to put my money on that GB, that looks like a brute.

I wish i knew how many hours i have spent on UTS Minnies like the one up top. Only differences were they were on LPG and had a pan type seat. Also spent a lot of hours on GB's like the one pictured. Lot of the time pulling either a Krause one way or Moline field cultivator with 12 inch sweeps. Thanks for the fotos

Typical Massey,to much power and not enough tire and weight to go with it. My 44 has fluid in the back tires and it still needs more weight to be added and a bunch on the front end to keep it on the ground.

Most of those tractors built back then did need more weight up front. Especially in tighter gummier type soils

Before power steering being able to remove the front weights was advantageous I have seen barrel setups fill when weight is needed and drain to ease steering.
