Antique Cockshutt 40

The Cockshutt Model 40 was a two-wheel drive tractor that was produced in Brantford, Ontario, Canada from 1949 to 1957. The Model 40 had a 3.8 liter six-cylinder Buda engine, the 6B230, that put out a PTO Power of 41.44hp in the Nebraska Tractor Test. It also had a max Belt Power of 43.30hp and a max Drawbar Power of 37.85hp. The large engine and available options such as the Live PTO and Live Hydraulics made the Model40 a sought-after tractor for the busy farmer. These great attributes were also extremely easy to work on, if needed.

The Cockshutt Model 40 had a six-speed gearbox, as well as two reverse speeds . The fastest forward speed of this tractor was 12mph(19.3kph) in sixth gear. In its second reverse gear, the fastest speed was 5mph, or 8kph. The two bull gears that had been added to this new transmission proved to be quite strong, especially when it came to tractor pulling.

When the Model 40 was introduced in 1949, only a gasoline engine was available. The next year, however, Cockshutt began offering a 230 cubic inch Buda diesel engine. In 1953, a distillate engine became available, and in 1955, a 269 cubic inch Perkins diesel engine was being offered. By the time the Cockshutt Model 40 ended production in 1957, almost 15,000 had been sold.
