Hey Dad, Can I Borrow The Super M ?

I was born and raised on the farm with Red Power in my blood. We had a Super C, a regular H, a Super H, and A Super M with a Power Pack,live hydralics, and power steering. I moved from the farm at 18 and lived in the city for many years, unhappily I might add. I finally got back to my roots by buying an old farm and began hobby farming about 50 acres of diverse crops and animals. How I loved reliving my upbringing! I had to relearn many of the lessons of animals and machinery that I had once known and hadnt thought about in years. One fall, I was plowing with my Super H and two/14 bottom IH plow. It had been a wet fall early, and then got very dry, and the ground was just like cement. I had everything I could do to get the Super H to drag that plow thru the ground ! It would either spin out or power out, even when set pretty shallow. After several days of that I became frustrated and thought of either leaving it til spring, or hiring it out to be plowed. Niether option seemed good to me, as a I was always told by Dad and Granpa that ' A poor plowing job in fall, is still better than a good plowing job in spring ! '. Then I hit on an idea, I called my Dad and asked 'Can I borrow the Super M to plow with? ' Dad said sure, and changed the oil on it, charged the battery, and removed the loader, and then even drove the 18 miles on the road with it to deliver it to me ! You see, Dad and the Super M had long since retired from farming. All I could do was smile as that tractor ripped thru the ground with that little plow behind it ! It had been many years since I had operated, let alone plowed with, the Super M. I had totally forgotten how smooth and powerful that engine was ! It would lug just a bit when loaded heavy, and then just hang right in there and power thru the tough spots ! No need to shift down or stop or adjust throttle at all. The tires were still filled with liquid and it had great tires and wheel wieghts too, so traction was not a problem at all. What a wonderfull and willing tractor that Super M is ! I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of listening to her work that fall. The Super H is great in its own right too, and is handy as can be, but what a difference that old M made to me in the tough conditions I had that year. I am thankfull for the expierence of getting aqainted with the M again, and thanks Dad for loaning it to me !
