Calendar holds answer to Farmall question

| December 2006

In response to Mike LaFever's inquiry (Farm Collector, September 2006, page 4): I have a 2000 calendar of Farmall tractors. The featured tractor for November is a Farmall Model M with four-wheel drive. The front drive unit was manufactured by Elwood Engineering Co. Most of the kits were made in the late 1950s and early 1960s. According to the caption accompanying the picture, this feature nearly doubled the drawbar pull. The tractor in the calendar photo is owned by David and Carol Garber of Goshen, Ind.
