Cropmaster 47

Post by Sven-Arvid » Thu Nov 04, 2010 8:45 pm

Hello!
I recently found this, in my eyes a beauty, in my wifes eays a wreck. Serie nr P11745 means to me produced during april 1947 to Jan 1948. 4 gears forward and 1 rewerse. Does anyone know how many of these were shipped to Sweden in 1948. I know I have a large work to do but I hope I can make it.

Hi Sven

P11745 was built around the 15th of December 1947. She looks to be in very good condition, has the tractor got push on fuel caps?

Would love to see some more pictures

What a find!!!! Wish we could find such tractors in as good a condition and completeness. Looks like it has not really done that much work as the tyres, well, the right rear, looks like the original pattern tread type. And lighting equipment as well. Wohaa!!! You lucky lucky so-and-so.

Gentlemen!
A great thank´s for your support. I showed your comments for my wife and she took a closer look at my tractor and then a closer look at me and then she shake her head Ha Ha. (joke).
Yes Lee, the tank has push on caps, I didn´t know about that. The picture lies a little about the ties, 3 of them are rotten and one of the back-disks have been changed for a newer one as there were liquid in as a weight and it contains salt as antifreeze and when it leeks out the disks get corroded by rust. I advertised for new disks and I got some answer around it.
Well the toolbox is not that intact as it looks like. there are some rust in the bottom but it´s repairable. And the lid is still there.
Yesterday I drained the gearbox for about 15 litres of water and after that 20 litres of some milky liquid probably oil. I think it is a good idea to look a little closer in the gearbox. More is coming.
Greetings Sven-Arvid

Now I have looked in the gearbox and found it extremely clean, no dirt, no rust, no damage.

Sorry to interrupt. How can you tell when a tractor was manufactured from its serial number? When was a 25D serial no. 10073. manufactured? thanks rheinallt

Rheinalt. Your 25D is a very early one, these started production in April 1954 and the first off the production line would have been 10001. Yours being 10073 means that yours was the 73rd off the line
