I like your choice of poets and your location of Ulster.

For some reason, I always thought you lived in the West.

How did you fair with the cold and wind? We lost power for almost a day!

Simply lovely. Do you get to the point of knowing the manufacturer? Of course, the greens were John Deere's, the reds seemed to be Massey-Fergusons, or Farmalls (spelling?), but I never remember any that were yellow.


NJ- Minneapolis Molines were yellow.

Thank you, Jennifer. To learn something new, that's why I come here. I left Columbia County NY in October 2003, but recall one dealer was selling tractors that were purple, while the Kubota man had orange ones. Of course, I may be totally mistaken. My memory has gone the way of that tractor.


NJ- When I think of orange I think of Allis Chalmers. Personally I think a purple tractor juxtaposed against a green field and blue sky would be beautiful!


The expert just told me that it looks like a "Farmall" made by International Harvester, however it looks like it is missing a cowling and possibly the gas tank... He's guessing it was built in the 40's, maybe even 30's. And here I thought it was just yellow...

Ulster county in New York is lovely. I own some property "upstate" that is like this.

I thought Masseys are blue. And I have seen yellow John Deeres in Northeastern PA.


Adorable Girlfriend-

The expert tells me that if the construction division of John Deere makes the vehicle it will indeed be yellow.

Can you believe all these comments about tractors. And the reds were Massey-Fergusons; on the web page for Heins Equipment in Valatie on Rte 203 were Farmtrac, which I swear were called Landtrac in 2002, and they are more a blue than purple. Too many complaints by purple cows. I put on my glasses and I can read the word Landtrac.

Drive 5 miles down the road toward Chatham and you find the John Deere dealer where I bought my snowblower, the envy of everyone here in Ocean Gate NJ when we get more than 4-5 inches of snow, which has not happened since 2003, before I was here. Guy named Ned sold it to me.....great name for a farm equipment dealer.

We owned 4 Oliver craweler type tractors, which were yellow.
