They are made in Finland, aren't they, Old Lefty? One thing I know about Finland, they don't bother with half measures.  :D

Nice one!

We have a  60HP Deere 5400. When he bought used hay equipment when he was into making hay for about 5-6 years, Granddad bought what he could afford. The New Holland equipment we bought at the time for the most part for what was on the large end of the mid-size utility tractor HP ratings; our tractor was on the low end of the recommended HP ratings recommended to run some of it, especially the baler. And ours is among the bigger tractors used by the smaller farmer. His brother, who ran a rather large farm ran 7800s. A friend of mine recently traded in his aging Deere and Case in favor of a much larger New Holland. Heck, the guy we sold the New Holland 845 we used (which produced larger bales than most other balers I've seen used) ended up having to buy a bigger tractor in order to use it--his biggest tractor was like a 50HP at the time.   In my opinion, if you've got serious implement use in mind, you're looking at at least 85-100HP. 60HP is great for general property maintenance, and our 38HP Deere 3038E is great for the barnyard, garden, and heavier yard-work jobs, in addition to (in the last year we made hay, the year we bought the 3038E) running smaller implements like hayrakes.

I picked up these two 1:43 scale Cursor (made in Germany) models of late '70s-early '80s Fendt tractors cheaply here recently. These were produced as promotional products for the company in 1977 (677, Fendt Favorit) and 1978 (478, Fendt Tool Carrier); going by the model numbers; which typically denote month and year the model was produced (not sure if it means commissioned or released). These were cheap, in near-mint condition, and from a US seller. Years ago, the AGCO website had very nicely adorned (with fancy screened graphics!) Massey Ferguson, Fendt, and Challenger Classic SDs. Never got a one, and I haven't seen them on the secondary market. There was also a Tourist produced about the same time these model tractors were made, which I don't have either. But, unlike the John Deere SAKs (usually hunter green Tinkers with printed yellow or white logos) these are much nicer.

The Favorit LS still has the original box (albeit, kinda tatty and the latching end of one of the flaps has been ripped off); and the Geratetrager (GT) has one or two microscopic paint chips, but that's it. All are hefty metal, feature Pirelli tires, and only cab roofs, some small trim pieces (exhaust stacks, interiors) and wheels are plastic. The only problem is that 1/43 is a weird scale to make a model tractor in. The drawbars fit my SIKU implements, but look weird due to the much larger scale of the typical SIKU tractor.

Cool history and info, nice Fendt models too.
Jim the Brave, you're right Valtra (previously Valmet) is made in Finland but perhaps sadly owned by AGCO these days. This is also the reason why the motivational power under many Massey bonnets comes from this neck of the woods also  (Sisu diesel being part of the package).

Valmet was and Valtra still is an icon of just getting the job done, every weather, every day, everywhere down here with a quite active club for the older models (Wanhat Valmetit) of which I'm a member. Valmet's/Valtra's background as a local brand of course means that it was and is designed for local farming needs which used to differ from other market needs. Off-road/forestry usage being one that used to be very important for small farmers. But also that many perks and good things in offer from other brands were not available. Of course, fierce loyalty between owners was and still is there (my grandfather was Ford blue, my family - with little me rooting for Fiat and JD -  Valmet/Valtra yellow/red, one of my uncles flying Case/New Holland colours, whilst the other could not stop praising the super tractors from Germany ever since the big Deutch Fahrs got a proper service network and thus became more feasible, etc.), all in good spritited manner of course.

The N-series in that pic. is a compact size allrounder in the 135 - 201 hp range. It's not mine or ours, belongs to the local agricultural collage who is doing training work on a section some 400 meters from our front door so I just mosed over whilst walking the dog to shoot some breeze and to discuss the soil, as one does.

The older Valmets shown have been ours and the new nifty A-series* Valtra  earlier is my brothers new tool (for him, my father, his brothers and rest of the family these are tools, first and foremost, for me a bit of a hobby).

*A-series being the small/compact 75 - 135 hp range for light/medium general duty.

Lefty, I have a friend in Finland who has his grandfather's Cletrac model 20K from the 1920's.

I think I might know about the tractor you're talking about.
He had/has a webpage about it and Cletracs in general?

Those were clever machines. Became Olivers and eventually part of AGCO if memory serves.

The 3130 is a model that was never sold new in the U.S.

Interesting, I did not know that. Kinda makes sense, it being a Mannheim build (and designed?) model. I thought I saw one in Montreal area long ago, but was probably mistaken if only available in Europe

You probably did see one in Canada. Canada is not the US.... They sold many Manheim models in Canada that were not available in the US. However, some of them migrated over the border when sold as preowned goods, over the years. Some Manheim models were, and are sold in the US. Some were made in Manheim primarily for the US market. (I think).
