  • Making my '39 earn its keep...
  • Spent the weekend with my 'old man' and one of our 39's to clear trees, haul them away and chip up the limbs.

    Bought this tractor a few months back, came the way I love them... flat tires and not running! It had a lot of early '39 parts on it that are considered collector items, like the long throat manifold, AL trans-cover without the dip stick, and a center fill fuel tank that accepts the air breather tube to run along side of it.

    Thanks for the help this weekend dad

  • Thanks for sharing the picture!

    Tell us about the chipper! size? does it have power feed? how does the N handle it?

    I have looked at the Woodland Mills 4" model WC46 but have yet to pull the trigger.

  • The Chipper is a woodland mills 6" model WC68. The chipper has the power feed on it. I bought this chipper because I was planning on putting on my wife's tractor (Ford 2000 Diesel) however I haven't fixed the hydraulics on it yet.
    The chipper makes the N a little light on the front, however it handles the brush great. If its over 3.5~4" diameter it bogs the N down a little, however this can be because the governor on the tractor is tired and I also haven't "tuned" her up perfectly yet.

  • Joel, you must live in a world rich with 1939 originals! I still have your wheel lugs sitting on my desk waiting for me to go down to the post office and get them off to you-I promise I'll get that done. Nice to see you are having fun with your work tractor.
