1944 Oliver 70 with Raby Cab

Dec 01, 2012

This tractor was featured for the month of December in the Classic Farm Tractor Calendar.

A classic through and through, the Oliver 70 was the first major brand tractor with a 6 cyl. engine. Built from 1935 to 1948, this 6-speed version showed 31.5 PTO hp at 1,500 rpm from its 201 cu. in. engine. (Nebraska test No. 351). Top speed: 13.4 mph on 40” tires. The Raby cab was a fine after-market product made by Raby Mfg., Table Grove, Ill. At the time this Oliver was built, the cab cost a cool $175 but was a warm deal for the driver. Raby cabs were also available for Farmall H and M models, as well as John Deere A tractors. Note, new 9.5 x 40” tires—they came from Israel.

Tim and his late uncle Leroy liked Olivers. Tim is on the lookout for other brands as well, especially unusual models. He and a friend have tackled a Minne-Mo R with factory cab and factory duals.
