hi altitude tractors

I thought i would strat a thread on the little apreciated Hi altitude  tractors.

how many are out there?  i know of the 44 w/planter I restored. That was old in a auction in WA state5 years ago where it went I don't know.  There was a 55LP hi alt at the Yuma sale.

Mr robinson has a 444 and a 44sp hi alt.   I saw a 55 in middle SD.  there is a 444 in OK.

anyone else know of anymore

Bill:

You could go and by the one on Tub's auction comming up soon.... It is not too far from you.  Serial # 44GIRA 1149 I believe this is the picture of it but they are not very well marked.

RE:hi altitude tractors

44GSA1003 with engine MHA260G56924_5 sold on eBay in 2007 - as i recall it was in fair condition and brought reasonable $ for that time - got over my budget.

Also saw a 44 Standard High Alt an auction - maybe 2010 - cant remember where but i recall it was in very sad shape.

While we'rte  on odd stuff - I have a power unit out of a drag line that is MHA277B10066 and I have an eye on a 44 Wheatland with a K engine. 44K1WH43253 with MHA260K50199

RE:hi altitude tractors

Bill - here is the 44 Hi Alt with 4 row planter you mentioned.  It also had the extra long axles.  Very neat tractor!

Drew:

That sure must be a High Altitude tractor as it must be floating arround in Cyber Space somewhere because the picture did not show up on my end here.

RE:hi altitude tractors

MHEd,
The 44 Wheatland, 44KIWH 43253, that you are talking about is actually a Wide Axel/ Riceland.  There are only five known.  I have an LP and a gas and there is another one in Indiana.  One is in Missouri and one may be in Kansas ( I talked to a man at one of the MENA shows and he said he has one).  Keep track of it because it would be a great find.

RE:hi altitude tractors

MHEd,
I didn't get to finish on the other post.  The picture on my first post is my gas.  I found it in Victoria, TX.  My LP is the one on the back cover of  Legacy Quarterly vol 01 issue 04.  I bought it in Belleville, IL at an auction.  This picture is a "K" that has been converted to LP sometime.  It too is in Indiana.
