8 still standing in Tractor Brackets

Jeff Caldwell 04/27/2011 @ 2:11pm Multimedia Editor for Agriculture.com and Successful Farming magazine.

Now we're down to the final 8!

Just like in Round 2, there were upsets and tight finishes in the second round, with some familiar names and a few lesser-known machines making it through to Round 3. Now, they're matched up to battle for Round 3! Next month, we'll pick the winners of Round 2, so vote early and often! Later this spring, we'll tally up all the votes and crown a winner of this year's group vying for the honor of Greatest Tractor of All-time!


Click on the Regionals above -- Wheat, Soybean, Corn and Cotton -- to zoom in and see the matchups, then click through to cast your vote in each matchup. And, while you're at it, let your opinion be known with a little smack talk!



Selecting the 'greatest'

"This 'Greatest' list certainly does not end with the 32 tractors featured here. Not by a long shot. At last count, I have winnowed my master list down to no less than 64 greatest tractors. Maybe more will join that fold in time as you take me to task for not including a particular tractor model that you feel qualified to be added to this honor roll," says Successful Farming Machinery Director and Ageless Iron Editor Dave Mowitz. "Enjoyable? Absolutely! I absolutely adore tractor history! The tractor has a very rich, very entertaining history. Plus, I’m of the conviction that the development of the tractor and related agricultural machinery is among the 'greatest,' if not the most monumental, of all technological advances that have occurred to mankind."

Four guiding principles were employed in that process. See how Dave picked the Tractor Brackets competitors and seedings, add your selections below, then get in on the Smack Talk in the Tractor Brackets forums!
