  1. combines in your life

    Also proud of what you accomplished. Set some ,gaols and keep working towards them,with what you did so fer I am sure you will reach them. I have a 18 yr old grandson, has abuot 20 sheep a few goats and a calf. scruonged up a few pieces of dirt to grow some hay to feed his growing herd. Purchased a 666 i-h a new holland haybine a massey #10 baler and old jd side rake. none of ti very pretty but functional.Started when he entered high school at 14. Went to work for one of my many nephews milking cows before going to school in the morning and after class again at night. He left for New Zealand 2 wks ago to go and work on 850 cow dairy form for the next 7 months,for the experience and to see how they do things there. The pay check there is not too bad either. I am proud very proud of him and his work ethics and am just as sure that your Grandpa is or (would be, you didn't say) would be of you. I wish for you all the best in your future in farming.
  2. combines in your life

    I don't know what average age of the members on this forum would be, but I for one am 73 and have seen a lot of changes. The first time I had anything to do with trashing grain was when I was 8 and I would drive a farmal sc pulling a wagon, loading stoked grain and boy if you jerked on take-off you would get a tounge lashing from the guy on the wagon piling the stookes. Now it would be interesting to see what different models of combines members have operated or owned during their farming years. Now I myself must confess that the I-H dealer in our area closed about the time we got married and started farming on our own, and therefore never had much to do with red combines. we had a Case I-H 5030 i believe out a couple of yrs ago with 6 row corn head and I drove that one after noon and I liked it, certainly steered much nicer than what I still drive for him now. Now here comes the confession, andI really hope I don't get booted off this site for It because I really like red power magazine. I collect farmall tractors and enjoy bringing them back to life. Being the only dealer that supplied any kind of service in our area was green sorry to say that is we gravitated towards. SO Here goes my list of combines---and a very short video of myself and my 16yr old grandson finishing this yrs harvest on a bueatifull fall day. #1 wagon and threshing machine 2-McCormick 76 with 300 farmall(the 300 is still on same model but not that original 76) # 3- Massey Harris 82 #4-cocshutt 545 #5-1400 new holland (hated that thing) #6- JD 6600 #7- jd 9500 #8- now drive jd 9770 for son. click on this link. https://we.tl/j5joHMKSeLlink

  4. Over-sized Load or Under-sized road?

    .Reminds me of the housee we moved from city a year after we were maried bachk in 1971. were living in a trailer and a friend had a house i could have for 1000.oo bucks, but I would have to move it 30 miles to new location.City said we had 2 days to get it out of there and one of those was a holiday so didn't have much time to get thing like permits ect. I got the most important ones to get out of the city-main highway which my mover said their permits required 24hr notice and we were already hooking up to the house. after delays from the fire department and then again from the city police we got on our way a couple of hours behind schedule.As he started off with the house in tow I tried to stay ahead of him obtianing permits as required.I did not have a permit for the last leg of our journey and headed over to the township department for permit. Sat down with the clerk, told him what I was there for and he started filling out the papers required. Got to the part where he said location of ( house where it was to be moved from) I looked him straight in eye and said --I have no idea///--- HE SAID you are already moving!!!!, and I said yes and if you don;t give me this permit it will be sitting on the middle of road !!!. Pause, just a minute . He went into his supervisers office there was this laughing and heard him say ,here give it to him and tell hime not to try that stunt again and I was on my way. I was 26 then and now I am 73 but we had our honeymoon house. Wouldn't want to try that today.

  6. Hauling Tractor or Truck

    Are your laws such that you can't put the 3500 on the trailer and haul it with the 1500/.
  7. A few harvest pics

  8. A few harvest pics

    Combining20017 copy.mp4 Sorry it's the wrong color but at 73 it's still great to be out here with your grandson on a beautiful day like this finishing the harvest. I don't write te cheques anymore.think you might enjoy the music. I hope this works couldn't preview it and may too big a file.
  9. What's your favorite crop to harvest?

    x3 just keep the header off the ground watch that bin fill up behind you and hope the buggy is back in time. a lot less stressful than watching a 35 foot header, especialy after dark and when the eyesight isn't as good as it used to be.

    the owner was a professor at a college in london on.pop around 400.000. his farm was right against the city so decided to pack it in. Word had it abuot six serious collectors come out just for that trctor because of the low production numbers. And then I guess who-ever has the deepest pockets.

  15. Fencing trip to kansas

    My B.I.L and a friend and thier wives were down there most of April mostly welding up anchor posts and gates. They could not get over how big an area burned and how fast it had moved with 75 miles an hr winds pushing it. These old boys are no spring chickens about 70. They are planning to go back again after planting is done here for another session.
