  1. Big money in tomatoes?

    in my municipality he would have zero chance of clear cutting that forest. how common is this practice in the USA? Ontario has been managed poorly by the clueless Liberals to the point many greenhouse operations are expanding in Ohio due to high electricity rates.
  2. Big money in tomatoes?

    that's not correct. tobacco is even grown in Ontario.problem is people eat tomatoes year round https://www.ontario.ca/foodland/food/field-tomatoes and then there is Ketcup wars........... http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/windsor/windsor-leamington-ketchup-tomatoes-1.3533994

  5. 7588 #501 selling this morning

    the crowd was very small for that auction although it was online. I wonder if the tractors being in Canada had any effect on the bidders? or the guy who bought the first 2 may have been going to bid any amount necessary to get the 3 of them?

  10. 1966 Farmall 656

    very nice tractor Aaron, the rear hubs are a big improvement. I have a 656 diesel that starts good I know its against policy but theres an IH Wind breaker on Ebay someone should buy ! I already got one https://www.ebay.com/itm/International-Harvester-Windbreaker-Tractor-Heat-Houser-Vintage-REDUCED/122798889154?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3D976de0348310426f868c606e9700a834%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D122798889154&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507

  13. farmall axle planter sprocket

    I think hydraulic drive would be better as well I would like to see your design !
  14. farmall axle planter sprocket

    he is going to use the tube elevator if I follow him correctly. Russ you could ground drive the elevator but the hydraulics would still be lacking on the M
  15. farmall axle planter sprocket

    heres my sprockets off an H that were used on a side dresser I believe- just posting for future reference if someone Googles this topic I watched the video you suggested and found it interesting since there isn't anything like it around here. I have a bale buncher I use for a few small squares I make if I am sick and cannot feed rounds with the tractor ( wife can throw a few squares in an emergency) I saw a W6 with a hydraulic pump driven off the PTO with the spline still usable for PTO use. The guy put a sprocket close the PTO housing and mounted the pump beside the shaft. I did not take pics but it was well designed
  16. farmall axle planter sprocket

    I have a pair of those sprockets off an H if I can remember where I put them. I will take a look tomorrow

  20. Letter Series Styling Upgrade?

    I like those Cockshutts as well. a piece of trivia? Raymond Lowrey designed the 550,560 and 570 Cockshutts My vote goes to the Letter Series design with the white accented 450s close second. despite being the same sheet metal the 400s were not as appealing as the 450s IMHO.
  21. On my 3rd reading of this book

    I would love to hear what you remember about the 560 and 06s
  22. On my 3rd reading of this book

    very true George, despite the ag equipment being line in fine form the company was doomed. I live near Brantford, worked at WFE and we saw first hand around here that there was no saving White or Massey along with the 1000s of great jobs
  23. On my 3rd reading of this book

    what I was getting at is the final few things that killed IH were out of their control. after years of bad management IMO they were trying to steer that big out ship in the right direction but they ran out of time due to factors out of their control
  24. On my 3rd reading of this book

    I have a question for you George and only because you give balanced and knowledgeable replies ( not disagreeing or picking on you) There is never any use in rewriting history but in your opinion if two things were different in the early 80s that were not in IH control : #1 8% interest rates , #2 $4.00 per bushel corn How would IH's fate been different?
  25. On my 3rd reading of this book

    the 80s were terrible ! one of the comments on the video was - Peggy House 1 year ago • My (then retired, but not for long) Grandpa killed himself in 1985, the year this song came out, when I was a teenager. He had farmed his whole life in Illinois near the Indiana border, which is why this song rips me to the core, because my Grandpa was part of an epidemic of farmer suicides that should have been prevented. I'm grateful for the lyrics even now, and the close relationship I had with my own Grandparents, and to the countryside where I spent so much time with them. John Mellencamp speaks to my heart and always has.
