UNLOADING A 'NEW' OLIVER 77 TRACTOR. Before the hot weather, Caleb and Jim ventured north up to Fork Kent, at Maine’s northernmost tip, to check out a 1951 Oliver 77 Gas tractor which had shown up on Craig’s List.
It turned out the owner was anxious to sell so we got ourselves a good deal. We're still deciding whether we’ll run this tractor or, alternatively, strip it out for parts.
We need to rebuild another tractor we’ve owned for 25 years, a somewhat newer 1950s Oliver ‘Super 77’ which needs a new engine, radiator and replacement rear wheels and tires. This new '77 is outfitted for a belt pulley but lacks hydraulics. Super 77s had factory-built hydraulics which every farmer values. Caleb, Megan & Jim
