Lots of 50s and a fair number of E5s were sold out here in Sask. I bought parts of an E5 at a local wrecker about 25 years ago to convert my 40's mechanical brakes over to the newer and better disk brakes that were on the E5.

That was actually the 40 in the previous photo. This next one caught both the 40 (stuck in the mud with the 15AS mower) and the 50 ready to hitch on and rescue the 40. About 40 years ago.

Very good info sir. Now what exactly is the association with Oliver ?? Was it before the Black Hawk, 30, 40 and 50 series ? They certainly are stout looking, I agree.

Oliver built tractors for Cockshutt in the late 30s through the 40s. Oliver 60 was repainted red to be a Cockshutt 60 etc. Cockshutt knew that after the war Oliver wouldn't be able to keep up with the demand. So they came up with the 30. From 1947-1962 Cockshutts built where true Cockshutts built by Cockshutt.

In '61-'62 Cockhshutt, Oliver, MM, New Idea...where all bought by WHITE. Those tractors built by WHITE where badged, MM, Oliver, Cockshutt to appeal to those who where loyal to those companies. But yet again where one in the same just different paint and decals. (the 1500, 1550, 1600 etc)
