  1. Dad's (Blue) Tractor

    One of those Fords 8000-9000 are on my list for the right price. Blue wasn't so strong here back in the day so hard to find one close by . A nice low hour 8000 was at an auction a year ago, however, I couldn’t hear the price from the auctioneer very good so I didn’t bid. Turns out it was around 5k which was in my price range.
  2. failed oil filter ?

    Back in my younger years we had an 806 with with M&W turbo. We changed oil and M&W filter went back out in the field had no power and lots of smoke. Turbo seized up check for lube oil there was none. I think M&W sent replacement turbo for 1/2 price.
  3. 1456 with detroit

    Still cool and a reminder of the good old days showing what creative ideas people came up with for more power. Regardless of why the engine was installed what could a tractor with that much power pull with no added weight? Might be good for pulling on the road or burn offs. I couldn't imagine operating such an obnoxious noisy engine for 10 minutes let alone 10 hours.
  4. LAND RENT

    Dicktater pull off the res.?
  5. LAND RENT

    E Washington 7-8 years ago irrigated land was over $1,000.00/acre
  6. DRIVERLESS TRUCKS

    Shortly 2 planets will collided with a big bang . One planet is full of a young self entitled generation always wanting more, however, Their not willing to do do much to get more. The other planet is full of technology made robots & machines willing to work nonstop, no O/T, no vaction, no PTL, no employee taxes. These robots are eager and willing work for pennies after purchase . Question is which planet will survive the big bang. Is it to late to stop these 2 from impacting each other?
  7. Retirement

    Before the election I was convince Hildabeast would win. With an EPA that was out of control I felt like I had 4 more years by then the EPA would take control of the ground due clean water rules and Tribal influence over endangered wild Salmon. The kind of wild salmon that are so endangered you can purchase them in most stores to eat, So endangered the local tribe has a successful business model of killing , freezing and selling them to stores. Since Trump got in I have some hope to endure and continue for another 10+ years. IF God lets me.
  8. Land rent contracts

    Farming is always a huge gamble. If the field is of good soil type for what your growing and close I would do it in a heart beat. The next guy that knocks on his door may jump on a 3 year deal then what are your options if you need land?
  9. DRIVERLESS TRUCKS

    People are being dumbed down from so many gadgets doing the mental work for them. Not to far away only Zombies will be walking the streets talking to themselves.
  10. Project truck for someone.

    Kind of an old cool truck in need of TLC https://spokane.craigslist.org/bar/d/1950s-international/6355033750.html
  11. life in our corner

    Sorry, It was a fast trip, no time for chit chat with flights to catch to limit driving time
  12. life in our corner

    Nice Grimme harvester there, Never have too many of those around this area. Just got back from N Dakota, Minnesota and Chicago . Obama had Jury duty so nice traffic jam going on there.
  13. Interesting, On craigslist a few months back I saw one of those gas/ diesel crawlers with a turbo I thought it was a custom job. Never thought it was a factory job since it was old.
  14. life in our corner

    Troy, I heard 4-5 weeks ago there's a new sheriff in town I hear he bought up the Rader operation. I asked my field guy from WE what people thought, He said they hoped frank would bring stability to the berry market , ISLMAO at that one.
  15. Farm subsidy programs

    My neighbor was a small organic operation, He got fed up with all the paperwork crap. He sells as no spray then no paper work, so many organic chemicals out there now some as deadly as conventional it's a joke. If mommy with her 4 kids paying big money for the organic stuff really new the deal. Yes I know there are organic guys that are the real deal.
