Re: G706 FWA
The front wheel drive were probably not too common on these tractors. I've seen some in Montana especially NE of Great Falls with front wheel drive for pulling wide wheatland implements. Some of the wheatland there is hilly so the front wheel drive was popular there. Also in the really dry areas like Montana, the farms were very large due to the low yields so farmers had to cover alot of acres. And in spring crop areas there is more urgency than in winter wheat growing areas. This may also be a reason more front wheel drives were seen in places like Montana. It may also be the reason why the Wagner four wheel drive and later the Big Buds, Steigers, and Versatiles caught on there first in a big way. These MM,s were a plains tractor mostly though some were sold in the corn belt to large farmers. The typical corn belt tractor of the time would have been around 95 hp something like a 4020 JD or 806IH and this would be one size bigger. That was a big tractor at that time. MM's like this usually had two wheel drive in places like Kansas from what I've seen in my travels and the few I've seen in Canada were also two wheel drives.
