Farmall M Parts
The Farmall M is one of the larger tractor in the Farmall letter series, capable of pulling a three or four bottom plow. Production began in 1939 and continued until 1952 when it was replaced with the Super M. The diesel MD was added to the lineup in 1941 and cost one and a half times as much as the gasoline M.
Affectionately called the "Big brother to the Model H", it had the same frame and layout of the Model H so that mountable implements were interchangeable.
The Farmall M was most popular with large-acreage row-crop farmers. It was powered by either a high-compression gas engine or a distillate version with lower compression. Options included the Lift-All hydraulic system, a belt pulley, PTO, rubber tires, starter, lights and a swinging drawbar. It could be ordered in the high-crop, wide-front or tricycle configurations. The high-crop version was called a Model MV.
Enjoying a production run that spread out over 14 years, over 290,000 of these machines were produced. Around 1940, the cost of the Farmall M was around $1,100. The cost of the Farmall MD was around $1,700.
The Farmall M Today
Many of the Farmall M tractors are still in use today, and parts are readily available. As far as collectability, these are the least popular of the letter series, most likely due to their large size. A wide-front version is worth more than the narrow-front version, and if you come across one with original steel wheels you should expect to pay a premium price.
Three-point hitch kits are available for these tractors which allows them to utilize modern 3-point implements. For use on a large farm this makes them just as useful as the more expensive modern tractors. With their horsepower, they can be used for some of the hardest jobs on the farm.
