Dexta Power

Dexta Power
In 1962 I was 19 years old and my Grandpa surprised me by allowing me to purchase my very first new tractor. A shiny new Fordson Dexta. The dealer, Russel Richey Jr. Of Augusta. Ky. informed me I would never pull a full tank of fuel through my Dexta in a day of work. Well, one day Grandpa told me to put the one chisel subsoiler on and loosen up a ridge we had just cleaned up with a bulldozer. You can believe me when I say the field, (about 6 acres) was full of rocks and roots. With the fuel tank full I started off to do the kind of work I love. I put the hydraulic system in draft control, the transmission in second gear and pulled the throttle all the way back to 1800 RPM. The tractor front end came off the ground and stayed there except when I was turning around at the end of the field. All of a sudden the engine died, OUT of fuel after only 6 hours of work. I walked home, about 2 miles to get fuel and help. Needless to say I gave Mr. Richey a hard time the next time I saw him. After 28 years of serving our country in the U. S. Navy I am back on the farm, and still own that Dexta, though it doesn't get worked like that anymore. Thanks for listening.
