Hi Torbin,
Hope all is well since you were last here a few years ago. Driving around the US in a flashy Mustang convertable you were! We had a nice visit, thanks for that.
The MT is too good for yard art. You are correct. I have been saving parts for it for some time and plan on getting some work done on it this year. It's life as a yard ornament will be short lived.
Good luck on your projects!
Tony

In post #27 I have pictures of a Twin City MT on full steel that I parked out front by the motorway as a form of yard art.
We have had a brutal winter here this year with heavy snow fall, high winds and lots of sub-zero temps. Here are more pictures of the same machine in our winter wonderland.
In the second photo I walked out to center of roadway and took a picture...normally you would see the front of tractor, but the roadside snowbanks are so high that the old TC is not even visible from the road!

Tony, you do still have a lot of winter!! Spring has arrived here and the Canada geese arrived last week. Only snow left is in the big piles!

No kidding on the brutal winter! My school had 6 snow days, 3 early outs, and 2 2 hour delays! And my school only planned for one snow day....... And we're supposed to get 6-9 inches tonight.

Here is a better view of it. It's made out of scrap and about half size. The rear wheels are are from an IHC binder, the chassis is a fergie plough, the steering wheel is a jockey leg from a trailer. There is a TD6 air cleaner and oil tank, a sump of a 10-20, the seat is made from old cultivator tines. The engine is a air tank cut in half with the other end the fuel tank. Two JD pistons for steering arms, some push rods for the steering links. I made it for a young farmers compition as well as Donald Duck behind it.

To be fair i set out to make a Farmall!!
When i got the rolling chassis made i thought it looked more like an Ivel so i carried on down that road.

You can wheel it about and steer it, not as good as the real thing but as close as i will ever get.

Just took in a Twin City as partial trade for another item.
Tractor is rough and missing many small items but I figured it would make a great lawn ornament. I have a plan to use it for some interesting photo opportunities throughout the late summer and fall by planting pumpkins all around it.
Engine is still loose so I oiled the cylinders, valve train, lifters/cam lobes. I have a cover under the hood to keep water out and I have drained any water accumulations from the oil pan and rear end housing. I had my daughter pull me into the garden spot and I am preparing to plant this years garden. I will get some more photos to post later as the pumpkin patch surounds the idle machine.
If anyone wants to buy this one or get parts from it, they may have to wait until after fall pumpkin harvest!
Tony

Unhappy Re: Old Steel Wheeled Tractors Used As Lawn Ornaments

Surely that Cane F-30 deserves a better fate than to just be yard art? That's a fairly rare tractor there that some IHC collector would prize and be happy to give it all the TLC it needs.
It's the owner's old iron and they can do whatever they want with it, but just sayin'.....
Mike

I agree with mike. That dude on a full set of steel would be pretty sweet. I'd trade a row crop oliver 80 on steel with a dupont overhual that turns over for that 30. Just sayin if the mag was hot i think it would run.

Now that i think about i have a good spare F30 fuel tank here also.

The plan is some day to get 2 of the F 30 hi clears and restored them, we have 8 F 30 hi clears 2 are Duck Bills
They all need lots of attention.
Better setting here than down south in my opinion.
starting to realize I am not getting things done as fast as I want.

Ain't that the truth for most of us?

I know I never meant to spend a decade working on the Massey.

I parked a tractor in my garden for yard art.
Look at post #51 to see how it looked when I rolled it in and compare with this months photos...looks a bit different these days!
I will put an update on in a few more weeks.

The pumpkin patch is really swallowing up the old TC!
This is how it looks for August. The sunflowers have reached 10-12 feet tall now.

I suspect the garden is getting enough FE (iron)

In post 51, 58 & 59 I have garden pictures from start to present with an old TC shown in them.
Well Mother Nature threw a fit that included some hefty wind gusts...The pumpkin patch is fine, however, look at the sunflowers in previous post and see how they look today
After the first frost I plan on more pictures with the vines down and a dozen-plus pumpkins surounding the idle machine.
