  1. IH air cleaner for 826

    Serial number of your 826 for the registry if you don't mind? Please and thank you!
  2. Farmall Super HTA for get this $140,000 and yes that is correct

    I agree with everyone here. A Super HTA is a waste of two good tractors. When I see them at shows and on rides, I walk on by. I won't give them the time of day.

    Thanks Wheels. Checked it out. The hunt for 15699 continues. So that wasn't the one. Thanks again!

    Your welcome. According to monthly production records a friend of mine found 15698 was the 100th 826 built in December of 1970. So I'd guess this one didn't set to long in any one place considering it sold to its first owner January 7th, 1971. And on the cab question, that is unknown when it was added. The original owners brother worked as a designer and delivery guy for Cozy Cab so a Hiniker wouldn't have landed there until later sometime. And speaking of Cozy Cabs, that's what the odd looking steps are from on 15700. John Arnold remembered 15700 getting traded back in on a 1086. It was wearing a Cozy Cab at that point so the odd step question got answered that day as well. Kinda ironic, 15698 had ties to Cozy Cab and got a Hiniker later on and 15700 did get a Cozy Cab at some point. Funny how things work out. And on a side not. I've been in contact with the grandson of the original owner of 15698. He was glad to know GRANDPA'S TRACTOR was still alive.

    Thanks for the compliment. I let my wife know as she's the graphic artist in this house. She put that together for me. The top two with the charcoal background she had put on a couple t-shirts to wear at Red Power Roundup. And the bottom picture is of a poster she designed. We put that on a sidewalk sign and put it out by the tractors we brought to Red Power Roundup. Saw people take pictures of it and ask questions. It did get the word out which was the plan. And to answer your question GT&T. I talked to John Arnold, the son of the owner of Arnold's of Kimball back in 1970. He gave me tons of information on them. He remembered them on the lot back in the day. Had no clue they were that close number wise. But that didn't matter back then like it does now. And I sure did ask the question if he knew anything about 15699. UNFORTUNATELY he knew nothing. He wished he did but that's how it goes. He did wish us well in our search. I was happy I got the information i did. I'll just keep searching and see what happens.

    Well it's update time again. Today is the one year anniversary for these two 826's. Can't believe it but a year has disappeared already since these two were reunited after being separated in January of 1971 when 15698 was sold. I haven't messed with them near as much as I had hoped. Daily life just gets in the way. Not complaining obviously cause their here under the same roof. I also would like to thank everyone who has been helping in the hunt for 15699. Lots of leads have been pursued, a few more than once, and nothing has turned up. So the hunt is still on.
  7. Poor UPS service

    For me I'm a UPS guy know him by name. We talk tractors when he has a minute. Will put things in the garage during inclement weather. Super guy. Can't stand the fed ex guy. Pulls in the driveway and starts looking if I'm outside to dump the package on me. If I'm not home he will put the package under the eve of the house. In bad weather we have a soggy box to contend with. One time he was here, I asked how many stops left. Answer was 5 but only gonna do 4. The ones out of the way. I'll get it tomorrow. If I remember correctly that was on a Saturday so that meant Monday delivery. If we have a choice it's UPS, even if it's more expensive. It's worth it to us.

    Hope this works. Thanks to all Veterans for your service!!!!! https://www.youtube.com/embed/uoABty_zE00?rel=0>
  9. Carlisle tires

    Carlisle tractor fronts are fine. Have some on the front of a Super MTA that gets plenty of highway miles cause a friend drives it on rides. They're doing great. I personally will not use those ST tires of any brand. I'm in the business of hauling scrap tires. One of my customers won't sell them. He calls them crap tires.
  10. Hey Santa.....

    1970 826-15699. I would be one happy camper.
  11. Sad Day , Got to put German Short Hair Pointer Down

    Hang in there. Been there a few times myself. It's hard to do but it is the right thing to do. Take care.
  12. 756 Serial Number 7546

    Small update. I inquired a little more. It does run and drive.
  13. Happy b/day rjpont,red tractor fever,red farmer

    Thanks guys.
  14. 756 Serial Number 7546

    Found this last night on my nightly rounds. The serial number got my attention. But the listing didn't have any pictures so I emailed asking for some. With a $5900 dollar asking price I personally expected something quite a bit better than this. I'm not affiliated with this in any way shape or form. I just don't understand how people can treat equipment like that. And it's to bad with such a low serial number. Anyway just thought I'd share some pictures of the 46th 756 off the line. So sad. 😢
  15. State IH Show Iowa 2014

    Was looking at some pictures yesterday and decided to share a few. I'm trying to abide by the new FORUMS RULES someone posted about wanting more pictures.😀 Well here's three pictures of a couple loads of tractors I hauled to the State IH Show in Belmond, Iowa in August of 2014. The feature was H's, M's, and 06 series. These tractors are owned by several people so I'm going to give descriptions of each. I want to give credit to those who need it. These are NOT all mine. I just had the pleasure of hauling these babies. The owner of the 450 in the second and third pictures said it looked impressive when we arrived. So forgive me please if this gets long winded. I'm a sucker for details and I know some others on here are to so here we go. Picture 1 from front to back. 1944 Farmall H with a Heisler 9 speed transmission serial number 153395. Then a 1949 Farmall M with a Heisler 9 speed transmission serial number 209450. Next another 1949 Farmall M serial number 209408. And on the back a 1966 1206 with a serial number of 12348. The front two are owned by RED TRACTOR FEVER. The back two are owned by NEPOWESHIEKFARMALLS. And if you noticed the numbers on both 49 M's. There pretty close. We'd been wanting to get them together for awhile. When I found out the feature was what it was the game was on. I played mobile tire repair man to. 209408 had bad tubes. They were leaking chloride and wouldn't stay up. So the afternoon before hauling them up red tractor fever fixed tires for nepoweshiekfarmalls. And one more thing. These two M's live 27 miles apart. Pictures 2 and 3 are obviously the same load. I'll start up on the deck. That's my dad in laws Super MTA serial number 63135.. He bought it in 64 when he started farming. If you look closely it's got a dry element air filter on it. I think it's M&W. I've only ever seen one other. It was for sale on Yesterday's Tractor for $50.00. Don't know why I didn't buy it but I didn't. 😠Next up is a 450 serial number 619 with factory spin out wheels. It's owned by some great friends of ours. The next one is what we call GRANDPA'S MTA. My wife's grandfather bought it new and it's still on the same farm. It's got M&W pistons in it. It's a horse for sure. The serial number on it is 65382. And on the back is my 826-13344. A Louisville Super M serial number 6521 was supposed to go but I ran out of time to get it ready. So the 826 got to go. And it turned out to be a good thing. An older gentleman was there that sold his 826 many years ago and regretted it everyday since. His son asked me if his dad could sit on mine which of course was fine. I wish we could've gotten a picture of it. However we were on our way home with the first load when it probably happened. So in the end the 826 needed to go. Everything happens for a reason. Hope you guys have enjoyed my ramblings.
