Fan of Allis-Chalmers

I read with interest the article “The Truth About Old Tractors” in the Summer 2015 issue of Capper’s Farmer.

Back in 1971, my husband, John, bought a Model G Allis-Chalmers (above), which he still has – and continues to keep freshly painted and repaired. We have almost an acre of land, and John uses that old tractor to mow the yard. He also uses it to plow the vegetable garden.

We’ve had several people stop by wanting to buy it, but our oldest grandson has already put in his bid for it.

Farmall Family

The Fall 2015 issue was certainly enjoyable. Of special interest to me was the Farmall story on Page 15 (part of “Pages From the Past”).

I grew up on my grandfather’s farm in east-central Furnas County, Nebraska. My uncle farmed with a Farmall F-20, on steel wheels as I remember. It was gray with red wheels.
