We bought this quiet little diesel from fellow Martha’s Vineyarder Allen Norton. It’s handy for a lot of vegetable jobs like seeding and cultivation, a favored tractor for the tine weeder and it often works the bed former, making beds for crops like lettuce, greens, carrots, beets and more.
Many Morning Glory farmhands say it’s their favorite tractor. It also has the fastest road speed of all the Ford tractors in our fleet — a paint-blistering 16 miles per hour.
