Re: Farmall Super A
well lets get backwards
Parts are fairly easy to find and reasonable, these tractors are popular, and quite a few were made, the letter series farmalls are good tractors. And they are pretty easy to work on/with all things considered. Making them popular for collectors and as projects.
The biggest change between A and Super A is improved hydraulics. Otherwise pretty similar.
Horsepower wise about 16 horse, but don't think of that like lawn tractor 16 horse, these are real 4 cylinder engines.
2... The attachments are more of the game. The standard pull behind stuff with a tongue and a pin will fit and are easy enough to find. However more specific stuff can be harder to locate, so if you are hoping to have one with a bucket, or a plow its best to buy one that has it already.
1. For snow plowing, if you get one with a front blade they are decent. Otherwise look around to see if you can find those implements before you purchase the tractor.
If its 600$ heck if its 900 and has good rear tires and runs I'd probably buy it.
