  • Cockshutt was a Canadian company manufacturing plows when it was first formed. Cockshutt sold both Allis Chalmers tractors amd Oliver thractors under its name in its history. My Father had two Chockshutt 99 and I still have the newest one in my storage shed. It was an Oliver 99 painted Cockshutt red and with Cockshutt cast in the upper radiator tank. Oliver had Oliver there and was painted green. There were an number of Cockshutt tractors in this area of Canada (East of Calgary) and were all Olivers models 70, 80, 90 and 99. In the late 1940's Chockshut built it's own tractor the model 30. It was a nice little tractor but without some of the features Ford had such as a three point hitch. Because of this and it's size it was not a big seller in this area. I am looking for parts for my Cockshutt99/Oliver99 such as a rebuilt Marvel Shebler carbureator and a generator.

The year will be first and the serial number after. We have the serial numbers if you do not find the year and we can help you out. We would need the number off the tub. Good luck.

The only time I had trouble with it, was when water got down the exaust pipe one winter and rusted one cylinder bad. I freed it up changed the rings in that cylinder and ran it another 10 years with absolutely no trouble. I am told the old girl is worth as much now as when I bought it. I would like to see it restored but I have no patience with that kind of stuff.

  • My first tractor was a Cockshutt 30. I bought it from a retiring farmer that was looking to find it a good home. It was almost a year before I knew the actual year and model. That made finding parts interesting. Although not a mechanic, I got it running. I buzz around the property with it. Makes me want to own a farm.

  • My dad owns two Cockshutt tractors--a Cockshutt 30 and a Cockshutt Golden Arrow. They are definitely his "babies". They are in great shape, and they both run great, too, as he is a retired diesel mechanic. He uses both of them on his farm in North Dakota. I believe he is planning to restore both of them at some point in his life, but for now, he is using them around the farm. They are not ready for retirement yet. They definitely get the job done, and he is very proud of them.

The other was given to my dad from his uncle for restoring a farmall super m, he gave it to me since i already had one. The farmcrest was repainted about 5 years ago but i still havent found decals for it. If you know where i might get them please let me know. It runs and looks like new. I use it to pull wagons in from the field in the fall and take it to plowing nearby plowing festivals a few times a year. I usually pull a 3 bottom John Deere w/ 14 inch bottoms in 3rd Low. I have 2 100pound weights on each wheel and put 4 IH suitcase weights on the drawbar when plowing. In packed ground it tends to run out of power have to shift down a gear. Does anyone know how many bottoms this tractor was designed to pull? Also ive had problems w/ the steering, it is quite hard to steer and the front wheels wobble a tiny bit at higher speeds. Has anyone else had this problem? The model 30 seems to have a lot of power for its size, if i remember right mine has 32hp at the pto last time i had it on the dyno. They seem to be a little light though, mine was helpless untill i added the wheel weights, which seem hard to find.

  • i have a 1955 30 series cockshutt and all i really would like to try is to change to a wide from narrow is it possible on this year and series and how and what do i need too do it, or would it be feasible to widen the rear axle substantially. i am very inexperienced and cost is prohibitive. any ideas welcome. even if i leave it original i am proud to own the pioneering leader in all farm tractors. i read the operators manual and marvel at the simple but excellent technology involved in this gem.

P.E.I. My father has his original Cockshutt 60 (1948) which he still uses around the farm to this day! I live and work in Regina Sask Canada.

  • My father farmed with the Co-Op 20 and 30 in addition to the Cockshutts 20 and 30. He had narrow-front tractors. Cockshutt [sold as Co-Op in the USE via the Farm Bureau] was one of the first tractors to have a live power take-off. Dad used his CO-OP 20 and 30 in Tractor pulls at County fairs. Their power gave him many ribbons. No I am desparately looking for 1/16 scale models of these tractors for a farm tractor collection for future grandchildren. My parents have died. I want to keep telling our farm-family story. Having these tractor models would be wonderful for me. If anyone knows what I inquire about purchasing these 1/16 scale models, please write me; Dennis at aol.com. Thanks!

I have restored mine with the rivets on the inside however the vavle stems likewise are on the inside. To date no one can give me an answer to this question that makes any sense. I'm fussy about this sort of detail and would like to hear from someone who knows.

I can't seem to match it up to a year but it looks pretty much like the one in the picture above but it also has a frontend loader. The only trouble my husband is having with it is the battery doesn't seem to be charging. My husband is very mechanically inclined but he can't figure out why it doesn't charge. Anyone with any info on how to service this machine would be greatly appreciated.

  • Canada Post issued a special stamp in 1996, commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the production of the first Cockshutt 30s at their Brantford plant. The bulletin that accompanied the stamp reported the following; Cockshutt "30" Farm Tractor Cockshutt Farm Equipment Limited was founded in 1877 by James G. Cockshutt, who invented a series of implements, including the J.G.C. Sulky Plow. The firm designed tractor-pulled implements and offered a line of American-built tractors. Ending the U.S. agreement, the company decided to design and build its own line of tractors and combines. The result of their intensive development program was the Cockshutt "30" - the first tractor equipped with live power take-off and a live hydraulic system. The first "30" was produced in Brantford, Ontario, with production increasing from 400 uits in 1946 to over 17,000 in 1949. Production ceased in 1956 and the company was sold to U.S. interests in 1962. This stamp drawing featuring a farm tractor shows a standard-tread Cockshutt "30", equipped with wheel weights. Similar models are owned by collectors and museums such as the Ontario Agriculture Museum in Milton.

  • I grew up on a dairy farm in northern Wisconsin (Ridgeland) and used Cockshutt tractors in the 50's and 60's. We had a COOP E-3 narrow front which when locally repainted was converted to the Cockshutt 30 colors and decals. We also bought a 1954 Cockshutt 30 with an adjustable wide front for row crop work. The standard wide front in your picture was too low to the ground to cultivate corn or beans but was good to stabilize the front end. The best feature of the tractor was the live power takeoff. It was the tractor of choice locally for running anything with a power takeoff. The tractor also had a good balance of power to weight so it's traction was remarkable. In the hills of Wisconsin the wide fron was necessary. My Father tipped over the narrow front in a sidehill with a front end loader raised. No doubt having the loader raised caused the tipping but it also made a "roll bar" which protected him; he escaped with minor bruises. WE sold the narrow front within a month. Cockshutt also made some follow on tractors; The 540 low boy; The 550 Standard (50 HP)which we had for many years in the 60's and the 560 diesel (60 HP) and there was a 570 Diesel for larger farms. These tractors were all cream colored with white logo panels. Their style was used by Oliver for their 1650, 1750 and 1850 models which weree of course green. There seems to be a lot of collectors of the 30's and 40 Cockshutts. The 550, 560, and 570 were similar workhorses that had many advanced features which John Deere and others eventually copied. I guess the Cockshutt is the SAAB of the tractor world. As a proud owner of many SAABs with their quirky but advanced engineering features, I appreciate in retrospect the advantages of Cockshutt tractors in their heyday.

This was one of his very best Tractors he had owned. MY uncle died in the 80's and left me the Tractor. I just completed a 3500 mile journey to retrieve it and how the OLD Cockshutt has a new home in California. I will be using it on my Ranch.

He worked it everyday almost until he passed away two years ago. The tractor, still working was sold off with the remainder of his assets, which included a 61 0r 62 Massey Ferguson.
