Purchased 12/09/01Visit! Great Ford N Series Tractor conversation on the Ford 9N, 2N, & 8N Discussion Board
Below are a few photos of my 1942 Ford 9N tractor doing some work.
The first photo is of getting the King Kutter brush hog mounted and adjusted to the 9N...
These (2) photos are action shots of doing some brush hoggin. The first mowing of the season, 2002.
This is my first year mowing with the 9N and it really seems to be doing a great job...
I had to stop and take a photo of the 9N with the brush hog mounted and the field mowed. I know,
I need to remove the tire chains...
Below are a couple of photos showing where I mounted a tool box for the 9N. It was tough to
find a place that was out of the way when operating the tractor. Except for running into an
occasional tree I hope this location works out...
These next (2) photos show a little carry all I fabricated for mounting on the 3 point hitch.
Its not that big but it comes in handy for carting somethings around...
The beginning of December 2002 we got quite a big lake Erie effect snow storm.
In the (2) photos below you can see I put the 9N to work plowing the driveway
with a 6' back-blade. Boy does the tractor do a great job. I am slipping
this year and don't
have my tire chains on yet which make the job a little tricky even with loaded
rear tires that are only 4 years old...
These next (3) photos were caught by my
of me on the 9N plowing the driveway. If you look close in each photo you can see the 9N in
Here in these (3) photos, my son Christopher and I are cutting the grass. Photos #1 & #2 show the
new 6' King Kutter finishing mower we just got for our 1942 9N
tractor. It really does an awesome job cutting the lawn. Photo #3 shows Chris helping out with the
Power King garden tractor. The Power King has a 60" wide mower deck. Boy can we cut some grass
Here in these photos you can see some work being done in our garden with the Ford 9N tractor. Attached to the
tractor is a cultivator I made using the spring teeth off of an old Allis Chalmers cultivator. In the
center of the cultivator is an angle mounted vertically, temporary, to make the row where the seeds will
be planted. The last photo shows the garden all completed, even with an electric fence surrounding it.
Hopefully this will keep the critters out...
In these (4) photos you can see my (2) Sons hard at work. Joseph is on the 9N brush hoggin, and
Christopher is manning the wed eater, trimming around the electric fence...
Here in these next (2) photos you can see the garden starting to really take off. In photo #2
you can see my wife Marlene weeding a row of onions...
On this Saturday afternoon, I happened to look outside my shop and saw a deer geeting close to the garden.
I was able to sneak outside and get as close as I dare to snap a couple of photos. Photo #1 shows
a deer, which looks like this years deer, just wondering and eating. Photo #2 was taken a few minutes
later during a down pour, and the rain didn't seem to phase the deer one bit. The electric fence
seems to be doing it's job as the critters haven't gotten into the Garden yet, knock on wood...
Here are a few photos of making some 15" car rims fit the front hubs of the 9N. If you would like to
read more on how I made these 15" rims fit the 9N, click on the following link which will take you to
my Latest Shop Work
webpage. I can't wait to get these finished to see how the 9N works with them...
New valve stems are installed and the 15" tires are mounted on the new rims. These following (4) photos
show the rims painted and what the tires look like mounted on the tractor and ready for action...
Well I finally got a slow moving vehicle sign on the rear of my 9N. (see photo below) I do a lot of grass cutting
and brush hoggin for other people and have to travel on the road. This should be great for safety and here in NY
it's also a traffic law for slow moving vehicles to have one visable...
This is a photo captured by my webcam,
of my 9N and I plowing the driveway on January 23rd, 2005. The first part of our winter
was pretty mild, but the last 3 months, well this photo is pretty typical...
Below is a Shockwave file that animates the growing of our Garden for the 2004 season. This is a
large file, 21M, so it might take some time to download. Without my Ford 9N the garden would not have
been possible... Garden 2004
We had a nice spring this year (2005) which allowed us to get the garden plowed up early. This was
a nice workout for the 9N. We made the garden about 24' wider then last years. I hope we did the
These following photos were taken in early July. It's been quite dry for the last month or so, and
you can see in some of the photos, watering. Early on I was pumping the water out of a nearby creek
but as that started to dry up, we are hauling water from our local town. We are putting about 400
gallons on the garden every night. Things are realling growing great...
Below are just more images of the garden in early July...
Below are some photos of our garden taken the end of July. Without the 9N this garden wouldn't be
possible, or lets put it this way. It would take a lot more work...
Below is an image captured from my
Antique Gas Engine WebCam showing
my 9N and 6' finishing mower in action. Both the 9N and the finishing mower do a great job
cutting the grass...

Well it's been a while since I have added anything to my 9N webpage so I thought it was time.
The weather has finally gotten better this spring and it is time to get the garden ready for
planting. These first (2) photos are of my Ferguson 2 bottom plow that I am getting ready to
plow the garden with...
Below is a Shockwave file that shows plowing our Garden for the 2006 growing season. This
file is about, 6.5M in size, so it might take some time to download.
These images were captured from my
Antique Gas Engine WebCam every 5
minutes while I was plowing... Plowing the Garden, 2006
This photo shows the garden after being plowed. The Ferguson plow worked great!
After all the plowing was completed I greased up the plow to put it away for another season...
These next (2) photos show my 6' disc. This was purchased years ago at an auction and needed a lot
of work. It's a heavy disc and I can't find any tag or name on it. In some areas it even looks home
These (3) photos my son took as I was discing the garden. With plowing and discing the 9N really gets
a good work out. It never complains though. Great tractors...
Here's the graden all ready for dragging, that's the next implement to get ready...
05/05/06 - 05/07/06
With the yard cleaned up from this past winter, we wound up with quite a large brush pile that needed to
be burned. On Friday night and early Saturday morning (5/5/06 - 5/6/06) we got some rain so conditions
were just right for burning the brush pile. The following (2) photos show the pile starting to burn...
These next (2) photos show the pile burning down and the unburnt wood being pushed into the center...
This photo was taken the next day. Only one large piece that didn't burn entirely...
On Sunday May 7th, condiotions were right for dragging this years garden. These next (3) photos show the
9N working out dragging the garden. Believe it or not, it takes a lot of power to pull the (3) section
drag. The garden is now ready for planting...
05/28/06 - 05/29/06
On Memorial Day weekend we got our garden planted. These (2) photos show my Wife and two Sons hard
at work getting things planted...
Here in these (2) photos you can see an attachment I made for the cultivator that makes a small row
down the center. I built this cultivator and have altered it many times...
These (2) photos show the completed garden. Now to watch it grow and to keep the weeds down...
06/01/06 - 06/04/06
These (3) photos show how the garden is progressing. It's only been planted for a week but things are
starting to come up. We have had 3 days of rain so things look pretty wet...
Photo #1 shows the creek I pump the water from for the garden when it needs it. The second photo shows
my house looking up from the woods, though the trees, where I pump the water for the garden from. Just
can't get over how green everything is...
06/24/06 - 06/25/06
These are (2) photos taken towards the end of June showing how the garden is progressing. Our corn got
eaten up by the crows so it had to be replanted. There is a scare-crow and an owl in the garden
now as we have replanted the corn and are trying to keep the crows out...
These (2) photos show what the center of our driveway is looking like. My wife has spent a lot of time
with the planting and getting the flower beds where they are today. It's a never ending job. Hope you
enjoy the photos...
07/01/06 - 07/03/06
In these next few photos you can see how our garden is progressing in early July...
These (2) photos show some of the tomato plants and how they are coming a long...
Next are a couple of photos showing how some of the pepper plants are coming a long. Boy I can't wait
to be eating from the garden soon...
I always plant a lot of flowers through out the garden especially Marigolds. I really do think it helps,
controlling insects in the garden...
This is another new addition to the garden to help keep the crows from eating the corn. His head swivels
and bobs around in the breeze, and seems to be working real well. (See previous mention above about the
These next (4) photos are just various shots from around the garden...
In the interest of keeping this strictly a 9N webpage I have created a
Garden webpage. I will be updating the Garden webpage
weekly throughout the summer and harvest season. Thanks for your interest...
