Post Your Tractor Photos

I searched and couldn't find a thread for tractors, there has to be other tractor lovers out there. Big, small, old, new, steam, gas, diesel, common or unique, post 'em here. (And no brand restrictions here, a little pokin' fun is fine, but no animosity please )

I'll start with something modern and something old.

Don't think I've ever seen a steam tractor. Very interesting!

In South Australia fishing areas, they often have tractors usually old Fordsons and Massey Ferguson or similar which they cherish as trailer/ boat haulers over the long stretches of sand.

Great idea for a gallery. Not a recent photo (that's me and my grandpa in 1968) and posted previously. My dad still has this Model A. He took the photo on slide film with an Argus C3 rangefinder.

That manure spreader brings back memories. Tough job on a windy day!

Well OK, so we dropped everything and on a whim went to Old Threshers Reunion anyway yesterday. Yes I took a lot of tractor photos but no I will not dump them all at once . To be accurate these old steamers were called "traction engines" in their day. Here are a few to get started.
