Re: Ford TW35
To me this just looks fantastic. I really like the older American 2wd's, Case 20, 22, 23 and 2590, IH 10, 12, 14 and 1586, JD 40, 42, 44, 46 and 4840 and Ford TW 10, 20 and 30 being my favorites. Note the enormous wheel weights between the duals to be able to put the hp's on the ground

Re: Ford TW35
newly painted? At least some parts. It sure are fully loaded wit weights even in the front with many extra kilos. Great photos but it would fit better in front off a disc or cultivator instead off an auger. dont have to say anything about my love off tractors are......Same as yours and these are up at the top!

Re: Ford TW35
That is a nice picture and a real tractor.. ^:)^
Why do you need those front end weights...Even our TW20 with the short nose and duals only lifts the nose a bit when pulling hard....

Re: Ford TW35
Looks like it is newly painted Stark, I assume that's why it's got a Gen II type sticker on the bonnet instead of the usual light blue and white letters on the Gen I TW35s. Wished I would've seen it on a disc too.
Don't know about the front weights, guess a lot of it will be transferred to the rearwheels when pulling hard and maybe they used something in the 3pt.

Dave thats a good really really good one but I think the blue is more brutal or even this one is one off the most brutal tractors off ´s and 80´s

I have driven my cousins 1370 in Canada.. It did have a 3 step powershift, but it wasnt made to use it frequently... very rough shifting.

That depends on how high you attach the drawbar: With a drawbar above the rear axle centerline it pulls itself up, transferring weight from the implement (as well as from the front axle) to the rear axle.

It also depends on where the drawbar is mounted on the tractor, in the middle off the tractor (between front and rear axle) it is mounted. One big problem can be when tractors have p.u.h . But you are absolutely right about the height.

Being from NW Kansas myself, the typical reason they put weights on the front of a "row crop" tractor like that is because they use it for a 3 point hitch. You see few rear wheel drive tractors out in the fields anymore unless it row crop. They may have an 8 row planter, or weeder. The front end gets pretty light when you pick up the tool bar and try to turn quick. There's not much weight on the front wheels to turn.

Re: Ford TW35
Thanks for your comments guys.

That is one great looking 4840 Dave, I had seen it on your website already. The 4850 MFWD is a great tractor too.

Stark, nice 1370 allthough I prefer seeing the 90 series, I like the hood/bonnet better on them. I know some 2090 and 2290s made it to Europe, I've seen some in the UK. These where available with MFWD too. I've seen a photo of a 2390 working in England but my guess is that very few came over.

Like Dan said it probably got used with something in the 3 point hitch.

Re: Ford TW35
hey Bart yet again some great pics.
The TW looks pretty damn good for it's age. only in my eyes it looks kinda weird without 4WD

cheers,

Roel.
