Cockshutt 50...

Im usually lurking around in the GT section here but Ive been looking for an old Cockshutt to restore for along time, and finally, just yesterday made a deal on this 50. When I was a kid my Pop owned a Cockshutt/White service center so this takes me back to where I first turned a wrench, and its my first 'Big' tractor.

The PO tells me he drove it to the spot shown a few years ago after he bought a bigger tractor, all the controls move, the oil looks good, it seems fairly complete and original, the Farm Hand is included and I think I got a H___ of a deal at $500cad, I couldnt get my wallet out fast enough.LOL

Re: Cockshutt 50...

I'm jealous of the tractor and the sign. Here in the midwest U.S. we saw more of the Coop branded Cockshut than the actual Cockshut. You are probably excited about the loader, but it's a pity that it blocks out the view of those beautiful lines. Congratulations on a great buy.

If I can make it fit that loader might end up on my Cub 154 Loboy

Re: Cockshutt 50...

Great buy! We had a CS 50 Wheatland on our farm when I was a kid as well. I remember driving it home from the auction when my dad bought it. I was just offered it back last month as it now owned by my best friend's dad. It is mechanically in pretty rough shape, but I may have to get it just to have it back.

Re: Cockshutt 50...

Love the Cockshutts. Had an uncle that had a half dozen around his dairy farm. Many around were bought up to make modified pulling tractors. Those rear ends were nearly bullet proof.

Re: Cockshutt 50...

It was worth more than 500 cad in scrap metal. That tractor has a nice shape to it.

Re: Cockshutt 50...

Actually scrap isnt worth crap around here these days, I think thats why these tractors are showing up cheap... even the scrappers dont want them.

I figure I bought a fel... tractor was included
