  1. We might have a heat house for that Oliver, it fit a 1655… I will have to check. Takes the edge off in the winter. I learned how to run a tractor on a 1650 gas. Still have a 2255 around the place it is a beast.

  2. Good luck with the Oliver. They always seemed to be bullet proof. We have had 3 of them over the years., All were good. Sadly they are no longer made . They were well engineered and ahead of their time. Wish we still had our 88 diesel and OC-3. Have fun with it.

  3. Cool tractor – have fun with it!

    Everyone aroudn here talks about the averages – we don’t often have an “average” year. Seem like they come with either 10″ of snow or 110″ of snow, or 40F or 115F and the average is what people expect – but we don’t often get.
    I have both of your cookbooks and canned up meat on sale (successfully) with the information. (For some reason I start with the hard stuff – hope to graduate to waterbath soon-! :)

  4. Holly,

    It’s an Oliver 1550. We ARE happy with the moisture as we were in drought last fall and early this winter. We were real nervous about spring and summer and hopefully it’ll be more normal. Maybe…..

  5. Oh – I hate that “bad sound” too. It has been so icy here. We have a big 4×4 tractor with a loader on the front and double auger snow blower on the back. (It is over 20 years old – needs tires and is wearing out too). Put a 1000# bale on the front and start sliding though a gate sideways on a slope on ice… has happened twice this week. Kind of makes my stomach churn just thinking about it….. Good luck getting your yard all cleaned out.

  6. So…what is it? I am curious….judging by the fender and white rim an Oliver maybe? We had a 1550 and a 1950. The 1950 had a Turbo – it was a 4 cylnder but had lots of power (105 hp) and was VERY fuel efficient. Ran a hydroswing and baled with it. (And called it the “screamin’ green machine”.) Best of luck with yours. I kind of have a soft spot for Olivers – (will have to see if I am right). The snow completely missed us – but it was close….be happy with the moisture….we need it.
