  1. who all grinds feed still?

    I don't know, my little 55 Gehl is pretty ancient!
  2. mixer grinder windows

    Plate them off, put scales on it.......don't need Windows. That is one thing I have to get on my old Gehl........scales...........after having them and not having them now, I am lost.
  3. who all grinds feed still?

    Best mill I had was a 357 NH with hydraulic drive, bought it at a sale for next to nothing, used it a number of years, and sold it for 3x what I paid for it and the guy who bought it thought he stole it when we quit cow. Wished I still had it. Grinder mixers bring crazy money now here, all of them are either rusted out or worn out. I been thinking really hard about a new Lorenz for that reason. Had a chance to buy a 170 Gehl and a 355 NH and both were hydraulic drive, both had only one turn on the hammers left, and they needed turned but we're very nice, They both sold for $11k........heck another $8k and I could have a brand new Lorenz with paint on the hammers they are so new.
  4. who all grinds feed still?

    I put ear corn, mineral, and acouple slabs of hay............ Speaking of grind feed, anyone here have a Lorenz mill? They are making them again, and a new one is $19,000................They are hydraulic drive and 130 bu, look decent. I was in contact with a dealer and they don't even have any info to send out, that is ok with me if it keeps the price down, just would like to know the height because I am limited where I keep mine. I am thinking about selling my old Gehl and buying one, it would last me forever.
  5. 18.4-38's vs 20.8-38's

    I got 18.4x38's on my 5288, they work but left a lot to be desired in the traction department. We thought about 20.8's, but at the time it was the NH3 side dress tractor so that was out(20.8's on 30" rows on hills is a disaster) and it was quite the expense to go to 18.4x42's on both the main tires and duals, so just put new tires on and kept what was there. I personally think 18.4x42's would have worked well here. 1456 has 20.8's on it........IMO I can see how IH had rear troubles on the 1466's, you slap on a set of those plus duals and some weights and you could do a lot more with the tractor than should be done.
  6. 1456 with detroit

    Was that the one Kinze did?????
  7. 1066 aftermarket fenders quality?

    A&I has ones too...............I am pretty sure those are on my 1456, to resemble the OEM's good enough for me, I sit in the seat and go foward, not ride the axle and stare up at the fenders.
  8. Rear Tractor Tire Suggestions

    Ones we put then on ran the road some with heavy 3 pt equipment, I didn't think they did worse than anything else we have used. I would buy them again if needed, especially for a batwing tractor.
  9. Rear Tractor Tire Suggestions

    Why is that? I put those on acouple tractors, for the price they work well. I prefer F-stone deep treads myself, but those are salty.
  10. 1066 aftermarket fenders quality?

    It's winter now! . You had to have snow the other day, was white here.......
  11. Fill me in on the MX240 tractor

    Yes, that is what I am after..........Just like the 8000 Deere's
  12. 274 and 284 Air Filters

    Is the gas and diesels different? This one was a 284 Diesel.....
  13. Fill me in on the MX240 tractor

    Not alot of flow needed Jim, piece of equipment I got I actually would like the electric controls for because running manual levers for valves makes it work kinda clumsy. For example, its hard to run valve #1 in one direction and valve #4 in the opposite direction because of the space between the levers and opposite directions. Only thing that concerns me is the CAPS, but from what I have been seeing most of it is over hyped.............I recall the same thing when I bought the first 88, the STS with the Sentry is junk etc, etc, I will be the first one to die before you get my 88 series..................I have been more than just satisfied with them.
  14. 274 and 284 Air Filters

    I put a napa cross in one for Jonesy on here with machining a adapter for the end, was a 1/3 of that $100.......
  15. Fill me in on the MX240 tractor

    I like the 8000 Deeres but you can't buy one as reasonable. Neighbor got a MX rental from the Deere dealer here when his 8400 or 8330 was down, don't remember which, but I won't forget him telling me that he really liked it. Considering they wape with John Deere brand toilet paper, that is one heck of a statement. Oh, they had demo'ed a Boxcar too, had the same issue I had.......couldn't see the potato harvester conveyor on high sided trucks without ducking or sitting on the floor, so I guess we must be the 1%ers..............I have seen kits on them to raise the cab air filter in beet country, so I bet we aren't the only ones.
