Heavy snows, like those of late, can't deter Frank Brooks of Greenwood from getting around the Rowe Hill neighborhood on his faithful Farmall A (posssibly Super A) tractor. Scott Kent, of Maine Tractor Crossing, in New Canada, offers the following information: "The Farmall A series, which has an 'offset' design, was manufactured by International Harvester from 1939 to 1954. IH Farmall called this 'cultivision,' but it cost IH some money, because Allis Chalmers used this feature first [and held the patent]." The drawbar horsepower was rated at just over 17 PTO, Kent said, and the horsepower at 19. "They weigh in at 2,750 lbs.and can carry 10 gallons of fuel.The price of a new one of these in 1940 was $515. In 1954 the IH /Farmall 100 replaced the Super A, and then the 130. In 1956 and in 1958 the final form of cultivision, the 140. 1959 was the final year for this style tractor. They were popular with town and state governments as highway mowers."
