    When my dad worked for Beggs inp. in Stamford TX he would bring the truck home on Friday and on Saturday we would set baskets for the 282/283 strippers all over Old Glory / Sagerton communities . Farmers would have the rears widened and the stands on the tractor and loose for us to pick up the baskets and set them on the tractors , later the would slide the row units under and attach the rest . New 283 strippers came in by rail , lots packed in the basket , take a panel off and gather boxes up and install on tractor at dealership . Lots to do ,move batteries ,put blower on back ,ck row sensors , sometimes cut a square out of a plate for the unit to raise high enough, on and on most important radio antenna and ground chain

    I ran a 4320 several summers ,mainly running 8 row bars plowing beds about a week ahead of the other bed plowing rig and my dad planting cotton on the rolling plains of TX. 9 cat face busters on top of 24'' sweeps and knocking the top off the rows with sweeps also would load her and made her smoke , the 4430 handled it better ,and the 4440 even better! always dreamed about it being a 4640 as i was running balls to the wall in 4th gear . In college I went to work for the former bosses BIL , he asked if i was ready to move farms ,said i wasnt through, he looked up from his lunch and asked "what gear you in ?", I says well B2 , He laughed said Son thats a C2 tractor , that took some getting used to ! and by the way in 89 it had over 9000hrs !!! but we farmed year around in TX. I always liked the hoods on the red tractors , I have a 544 farmall wide ,3point it came out of iowa and i like it just fine
