    I found out tho, that they sold some Moline's under the Oliver tractor name. Interesting, did not know that.

    My 60 is rated at 37 h.p. or so. It'll pull 3- 14'' plow's decent, if the ground isn't real tight. (I have an old trip/pull type plow)
    I ran a J. Deere 214W baler, it ran it fine.

    It's really all the bigger tractor I need. Most of it's work is pulling trees that I fell and row them up to cut for firewood, and pulling people from the lake here when they are stuck, i have an ad at store down the road, and make some cash getting people out of sand.

    And, I like the fact I can change out a clutch in no time with the outside mounted clutch..same with the brakes.
    I don't use it near as much as I used to because I have to bring in propane in bottles, lift the bottles up, and fill from top of tractor.
    I sold my 250 gallon tank on wheels a few yrs back, thinking I'd sell the 60, but just can't let it go. I've had it since 78', kinda sentimental, and it's been paid for since those days, still runs good, easy to repair for most part, and I like a hand clutch really better than a foot clutch.

    Have you tried selling it where you are?
    It's just too far off for me.
    its a gasser unit. I havent tried sellin it localy its still sittin @ my buddies ranch , next county over.

    Well, I know around here, those parts on that tractor would bring decent money.
    Like I said, just don't see Moline's around here often. Unless it was sold as an Oliver, as I found out that some were, and still don't see Oliver's that often.

    Might run an ad for parts, or heck, find the clutch parts, and repair it.
    Your Moline is vintage now, not long, it'll be antique..usually after 50 years old.

    Mine are antique, the B is a 42' model, and the 60 is 54' standard model (man I feel old).. anyway, it'll bring some money either way, parting out or repairing it. Always someone out there looking for certain tractors.

    The one I'm swapping for is a 38' model, no starter/battery (magneto), hand crank only, very simple tractor.

    The one I found is an older one. The guy I'm working the trade on the tractor with was tickled.

    File any pits out, polish on the wheel, re-blue, refinish the walnut, new recoil pad, might have to re-checker some... and be good to go.

    He decided he didn't want the short barrel after we talked, but he wants an extended tube to fit full length barrel, which I have those in stock. He wanted one to use shooting skeet so don't have to reload so much.
