Historical facts from Hemmings Motor News:
- In celebration of its 50th anniversary in 1953, Ford rolled out a new compact tractor to replace the N-series. The 1953 NAA boasted 50th-year Golden Jubilee badging, an overhead-valve “Red Tiger” four-cylinder engine, a four-speed transmission, and streamlined styling.
- The NAA’s Solid System hydraulics relies on an engine-driven hydraulic pump rather than the PTO-driven pump that was standard on the N-series tractors.
- The NAA enjoys a strong following and a dependable return on investment. The new and used parts availability for these tractors is excellent.
- Expect to pay upwards of $5,000 for excellent examples, though typical used NAA tractors trade regularly in the $2,500 range.
The tractor starts easily (with correct technique) and runs great. It has been used for moving a utility trailer, mowing, plowing snow and grading stone driveway. Last used for plowing snow in February 2014.
Using only pictures, a dealer has appraised the tractor to be worth approximately $2,500 plus $150 for the grader blade and $50 for the slip scoop. He is willing to sell it on consignment or buy it outright for $1,500.
The tractor search committee, after visiting several tractor dealers, has located a John Deere that it feels is a good buy for the club. A special meeting, will be held at the club on Saturday, February 8th at 5:00 PM to consider this purchase and vote on it. All members are encouraged to attend.

As many of you know we had a bad week at the pond a few weeks ago. 75+ fish were lost due to low oxygen level in the pond. I want you to see what our good friend Dan Slanker has designed for us way below what it would have cost to by a complete one. Thanks, Dan, for all your hard work.
I also want to thank Ron Kaehr, and his grandson, Jack, who pulled the dead fish out of the pond and buried them in the woods. Talk about a smelly job! But they did a fantastic job.
Thanks to all!
Just a reminder to all members that we have a membership meeting scheduled for tomorrow, April 11th, 2013 at 7:30 PM. See you there!
