|The Ford 7700|
When I was 6 or so (im 14 now) I'd spend time at my uncle's farm in western New York. They hay about 700 acres a year today, but then they had an old ford (about 40hp) and an Allis-Chalmers 5040. They hayed much less then. But when I was about six, they got a third tractor, a Ford 7700. It was always so big, tall, and strong to me and my cusians. I spent many hours with them on the cab of that thing. He would remove the doors in the summer, and usually not put them on until late fall/winter. There was a loader on the tractor, and I was always amazed at how it could pick up a huge marshmellow (round bale) and never even shake the tractor. Although there was phew! when he let go of the joystick.
That was a good, old tractor. It was, this summer, traded for a 125hp New Holland. It had a good run. The clutch and brakes were worn and the engine was coming up on needing a complete Overhaul.
