Over the years I have wound up with 3 farmall A tractors, starting with
my dad's. He bought it used in the 70's. I don't much and glad you are here.

I won mine in a raffle. They called it "restored," really all they did was shoot a little paint and clean out the carb. But hey, nearly free tractor.

Mine drags a lot of brush, plus the truck out of the ditch when a kid tries to learn driving the clutch. Just once so far on that last one.

What do you do with yours?

All three have Woods belly mowers attached, one 5 foot and 2 six foot. The farmall A's are a little underpowered for tall grass but they work great if I don't get too far behind.
I planted several acres of pine and hardwoods a few years ago and they are
just the thing for keeping it clean between the rows.

6ft mower, I didn't think the A had the scratch to turn a mower that big. I've been sorta keeping my eyes open for a 4ft brushcutter, if I ever manage to make a 3pt to put on it.

there are several ways to improve the power of those.

I assume they have the 113 engine you could..

go with a over-bore kit.(brings it to 123 CU)

find a 1952 or later super a or c 123 engine, then go with a overbore kit.
(that nets about 133 CU)
mill the head about .030

or find a head off a 140.
you could go with a 135 or 153 engine, but its a bit of work....


I have a super C engine in my 1941 B. it will pull a 6 foot finish mower fine.
