That picture brings back many memories of a tractor that looked almost the same. I repainted it after I got it running, thinking I would keep it forever. I was used to Farmall Ms and the W6 was so different. It WAS NOT a road tractor like the Ms. Uncomfortable and odd, I did not like it. It sat around for a couple years doing odd jobs until one day I was given an old 3 bottom MM pull plow. I plowed the garden, I plowed a couple small fields to scour the plow. I plowed more, until I realized that was what that tractor was made for. It wasn't awkward any more. I parked it proudly right next to my favorite M. It was one of the last tractors to go. I didn't sell it at my farm sale because I hoped to keep it a while longer. I finally had to sell it but I found it a good home with a friend. 25 years later he still has it and it is well cared for. I have even plowed with it several times, it is still hooked to that MM plow....James

Good looking W6, I see he's changed the seat, wise thinking not so tough on the old spine.
