So I decided to "reopen" our general venue for, well, pretty much anything by, posting in it AFTER the "closure crisis" had passed, so that we could resume talking around ra...

Re: Old Super...you're gonna cry

Someone in our locality had a Fordson Major Diesel (this is the Dexta forum, but we're talking about out-of-action tractors), parked outside under the half-shade of bamboo foliage and a mango tree, and I've never even seen it run for as long as I remember (at least 16 years). And he...

Re: 1925 White Truck.

I know that there's a tractor manufacturer there in the States named White, and I'm a bit annoyed by it , because their tractors were actually painted grey.

Is the White company I'm talking about the same company that made that truck?

Re: Help 2wanted for poor Ford 4000

My grandfather's Ford 4000 drowned in a flood back in 2009. The tractor's broken and they can't move it to higher ground because the only tractor they got at the moment is a small Japanese Iseki tractor that struggles to pull the bigger 4000 in level ground, let alone up a slope or a dike. So they h...
