Our tractor was found in Taylorsville, Kentucky. After I told my son about the tractor, we went to see it, and fell in love with it because it was one of a kind in our area! We bought the tractor and it was running and in great condition.

It is a 1952 Cockshutt 30, Serial #34828, 4 Cylinder, 'Buda' engine, built in Brantford, Canada, and sold through Co-Op.

After taking it home, we steamed it, sandblasted and painted it, and added new front tires and decals.

We both enjoyed working together on the tractor and putting it in the Marion County Ham Days Festival. This is the first tractor with continuous PTO.
