What was the first tractor you drove ? and when ?

And how old were you ?

I remember being about 4 or 5 and I'd stand in front of Dad on the Oliver 77 as he took hay to the cows in the morning.

He let me 'drive', I suppose.

Solo ?   Grandpa's Farmall H at about 7 or so, hauling corn from the fields to home.

Mine was at my great uncles farm in West Va. It was a 1950 IHC Super W-6 I was 10 years old. His great grandson restored it and has it still today.

I remember when dad got the old Ford, before that we used a single row plow with one mule power.
