Here are pics of a couple of offset Farmalls/IHs, a 140 and 274, that take a break from working up a patch for a garden.
It varies. Sometimes one will have a rear wheel weight on the right side only, and if both sides have weights, the one on the right is heavier. Front weights are available, but they are the same for both wheels. One does have to be careful especially on hillsides.R.W said:Looks good! How do those off-set tractors balance out with all the weight on one side?
The 140 has a one point hitch on it. The 274 is rated at 27.5 hp, very operator friendly and much better and easier steering than any of the other offset Farmalls that I have used. It has enuff power to operate my square baler with power to spare, just not enuff weight. Put 5 gals of fuel in it and it seems you can cultivate baccer forever.gordon1121 said:Jim you got two good looking tractors there always wanted one of the 274's they had the diesle engine factory 3pt just seemed like a good tractor. Good looking 140 to was wondering if yours had the quickhitch or the drawbar hookup. I'm also glad to see I aint the only one that uses the cultivator bar for a step.
I have a Cole fertilizer distributor for the 140. I have another Cole that needs repairing, but have been unable to find arts.single tree farm said:The offset Farmall's will forever be my favorite tractors, the 274's always seemed especially nice with the added conveniences. The one point fast hitch always seemed to be very overlooked in it's convenience - if one is able to track down the implements. Envious of you having two of these beauties, I know how much work they can save just having one. I see the hose for the sidedresser on the 274 (I think,) do you all side dress with the 140 as well? Thanks for sharing!
