Kubota B7800. It has the Kubota quick attach front, to allow either the bucket or the complete pallet fork frame. 3 point implements include a Landpride landscape rake, which also has a blade that can drop down to make it a scraper. Also a PTO-driven wood chipper. The older I get, the handier this thing is.

The 1988 John Deere 750 it replaced. GREAT tractor, owned it for 28 years, zero repairs that weren't a direct result of operator stupidity. Only reason I moved up is for a cab and power steering.
The 1938 Farmall F14, bought as a non-running toy, the target of a ridiculous amount of money, recently sold as I never played with it any more.
"Guido", the 1970-something (as a guess) Pasquali P986. 20HP one-cylinder diesel, 3x3 transmission (9 gears), true 4wd and fully articulated. In low-low at an idle, snails pass it up. In high-high at full throttle, it'll do nearly 20MPH. In the lower gears and 4 wheel lock, it'll climb the side of a barn.
Be careful when following the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.

1949 Farmall, this was my FIL's tractor. It sit for at least 15 years +. I put a new battery in it and it fired right up, we have been using it for past few years and now we finally decided to get it returned to factory condition.
