Tractor parade fun

GREG PETERSON 04/12/2012 @ 8:12am Greg Peterson writes "Machinery Pete" column for Successful Farming magazine and appears on the Machinery Show on RFD-TV, talking about trends in the used equipment market

Choices, choices, choices.

My friend Matt had to decide. Was it going to be his JD 7420 tractor or his IHC 460 to drive in the 10th Annual Randolph FFA Tractor Parade this morning (April 11, 2012) in Randolph, MN. The IHC 460 had the sentimental edge as it was Matt’s grandfather’s tractor and then sold to Matt’s dad years ago. Restored with a Schwartz wide front.

But Matt Braun went with the JD 7420 for the parade, mostly for logistical reasons. “Today it was stuck in the back of the shop,” said Braun about his IHC 460. “I didn’t get up to the farm until later, so I’m like well, let’s take this tractor.” So the JD 7420 it was. Nice looking rig. You can see Matt and his JD 7420 tractor in this Youtube video I posted after the parade:

Matt promised next year for the 11th Annual Randolph FFA Tractor Parade he would go with the IHC 460. I can’t wait to see it bud. Until then, here’s a list of all the IHC 460 Tractors I’ve seen sold at auction over the last 10+ years:
