073 – Green or Red Tractor Which are you?



Green / Red or Blue, or Orange, or Yellow, or etc., etc., etc.

This all relates to what farm equipment brand you are fond of.

But first is there as much brand loyalty as there once was?  Has dealership consolidation changed your buying color?  What did your Dad or Grandfather run?

Tractor restoration is a whole different ball park when it comes to brand loyalty.

Oliver, Massey, Ferguson, Minneapolis Moline, Farmall, Allis Chalmers, John Deere, Case, and on and on and on.  1970 and 1980’s vintage large 4 wheelers brings on another argument.  And come on now who does not want to see the “Big Bud” in action.  All 747 horses.

I take a walk down memory lane for some of us and everybody knows somebody in their neighborhood that just has to have the latest new tractor that came out from their favorite color.  For some consolidation of brands has made them have to change for others it is just simply where they can get the best deal.

As for us, we have mainly green with a splash of blue and red thrown in.  How about you?
