  1. Wisdom of buying an Elwood axle to farm with?

    Jass1660 is correct, I have one on a 1486. Just use for tiillage and grain cart, I pull the drive shaft for the cart when FWD isn't needed. Run small width tools on small fields, it works just as well as the 180 Puma I had. But I don't use it on the round baler, afraid driveshaft by pinion would wrap with hay.

  4. Ruby Red's IH Equipment at Work

    Nice updates to a good ole tractor, enjoy your pics and stories.
  5. Spelt ,is it harder to combine ?

    Have not done spelts in 25yrs, used them just like oats in the cattle feed. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think spelts are used now for gluten free flower. Can't remember, but I think there is a mill/bakery in the thumb area of michigan. Someone will know for sure, I'm developing CRS with age.

  11. We got Frost this Morning

    I am straight south of Orchard6, about 6 miles. I had 23 degrees at 6am monday. Not good, but varing reports of damage. It usually takes a couple days to really tell, but I was working ground yesterday afternoon. The neighors block next to the field looked tan instead of white on the blossoms. They are toast, pistols are black. I do have muck farms by the home place, so we get pretty cold when it hits.
  12. Look who showed up?

  13. Time Stopped

    That just made my friday strart out right!!
  14. Cover Crops Anyone?

    Have tried a few things, wheat works pretty good across the board for me. But radish and austrian peas work very nice planted after wheat harvested for grain. I have options to plant these, planter is the other red with splitter for 15in. rows. Set up for no-til, just change seed plates, set planting depth and go.
