|Comments:||Nice to see an interest in this equipment line. Spent many hours behind the wheel of Oliver tractors ( standard 88, 880, and 1800) and the first combine I ever drove was an Oliver 40 on my grandfathers farm. Most if not all of the Oliver equipment was purchased from Sokal Brohers. (Oliver dealer near Winnipeg Mb.)|

|Comments:||I think I contacted you years ago when I first got my Oliver tractor. I am still having problem with it. It never ends. Actually for most of the last 7 years it has kept going even though it is a wreck. Still, where I live and for the price I paid it is better than not having it. Where I live is more rocks than dirt.|
|Comments:||Hi Larry, I like your page.
Would it be possibe to help me with drawingd to make a wooden model of an Oliver tractor? Some pictures from the side, front and rear together with some measurements (size of wheel) would be helpful.

He was on a waiting list for a John Deere, International and Oliver, the Oliver 70 came up first. Dad passed away twenty years ago but I still have this tractor, this 70 has aluminum curtains I still have it the plow, heat housing and cultivators. Dad had mainly Oliver tractors 1655, 1755, 2- 660's, and a 550 with loader, I have them all and have added a 60 and 66 to my tool shed. They are not show pieces I like to use them.

|Comments:||Dear Mr. Harsin,
Thank you for a great resource on the Oliver tractors.
I am very fortunate to own a 1650 that I inherited from my father. It was the tractor that I spent my teen years plowing with on our Dairy farm in Klein Texas. I used it just a few weeks ago to move 45 round bales out of the hay field. It was the day after fathers day and although my father has been gone since 2004, I was able to be with him in spirit just the same.
It was a perfect day, even the blown hydraulic hose half way thru the day, that only took 2 hours to repair, was "Icing on the Cake"! Just like old times!

|Comments:||Thank you for the tour. I have had several Oliver outboard motors and the Chris-Craft outboards before being sold to Oliver Tractors.
My best memories are in the fifties on a farm where everything was done with one Oliver Rowcrop 60. I thought that thing was invincible. From plowing to picking and baling. We even ground all our feed for the dairy cows, pigs and chicken with it. I remember one nasty Indiana winter running it 24 hours a day driving a generator for power for the milkers, lights and some heat.
Thanks for the memories!
Thanks for all the info in your archive. It has helped me & my boys keep 1 supper 55 ,2-550 gas & 1- 550 diesel, running.
