This tractor is featured for the month of October in the Classic Farm Tractor Calendar.
On a perfect fall day, this beautiful brute is doing what it does best: plowing wheat stubble, pulling a Moline 5-bottom, 16” plow. The Minneapolis-Moline Model G 706 (LP) had a 504-cu. in. 6-cyl. engine (bored and stroke of 4 5/8 x 5) that produced 101 hp at a leisurely 1,600 rpm in Nebraska test 834. The diesel version’s test was virtually identical. It used an Elwood front axle which was a full-time 4WD. This M-M model was built and sold from 1962 to 1965.
Owner: Wesley Knutsen
He enjoys collecting, restoring and “playing with” Minne-Mo standard treads on his western Minnesota farm. Another favorite is a ’59 GB sporting 403 cu. in. and 70 PTO hp. It pulls a 4-bottom, 16” M-M plow.
