  1. On JD 1508 batwing went through 2 sets of gearboxes in 1st 12 years, got about 20 yrs on 3rd set so far. Last 10 yrs only use about 30 hrs each summer and was filling gear boxes 2x daily as they would get to "howling" till in 2013 popped covers off and filled to top with gun grease, took 20+ tubes. 4 years of use with no added lube or howling.
  2. Filters are expensive, you just flushed that with gas & put it back in right ?
  3. Anybody drove one of these, 2 brake pedals or 1 ?
  4. Yes, there was one purchased new 2 mile from me.
  5. A quote from the Heritage Iron article by Tharran Gaines " With 40 degrees of articulation in each direction, the operator could literally power through headland turns without the need to use the individual rear brakes. " This is what made me ask if right and left brakes were controlled independently ?
  6. In Heritage Iron a story on the AC 4W 220, the author says it has individual rear brakes. I have 3 ?s. #1 is that correct, or am I not understanding something? #2 if it is correct, what is the reason behind it ? #3 are there other makes & models {AC 4W 305 } that have this feature?
  7. Was at an auction once where the auctioneer announced on a set of duals " selling by the piece" , not selling by the piece X 2. A fellow I knew said watch this and proceded to bid till he had the winning bid, he then said he wanted the left one. The auctioneer said he had to take both to which the bidder told him that's not what you said. The auction guys had a pow-wow and conceded the bidder was correct. So they sold the right one, which nobody had a use for, the fellow got it for 5 bucks.
  8. My spray foam guy recommended something vs nothing be used between the metal & his foam in case someday a piece of metal needed changed. This was new construction so it was easy to do. I figured since I was using something it may as well have some R-value instead of just house wrap. I can't remember the name of the product, but I do remember it had a chrome looking side and a white side, was bubble wrap with a 7 R-value in a wall application. On top of it I put1 inch of spay on foam. On top of that went 8 ft wide fiberglass bat vertically between posts. On top of that is the steel liner panel. I can't remember the total R-value, but it seems like it is in the 35 area. This post frame wall sits on a 4 ft tall, 10 inch thick concrete wall that has 2 inch Styrofoam, a skim coat of sray on foam, and the bubble wrap under the metal on the outside of the concrete extending down to the footer.
  9. I'd go 4 inches If all it was for was to park stuff on, put a little rod in the doorways. If you ever want to convert part or all of it to a shop you will probly bust it out for reasons such as heat, slopes, drains, and/or ways to secure things. Save $ and even with some imperfections much nicer than rocks or gravel/dirt.
  10. After further study it is a 700 cause the lift linkage is missing that a 710 would have for the front furrow wheel.
  11. I thought maybe a 700, but I can't get a good look at how the coulters are mounted. Definitely a 700 or 710.
  12. Do you have the factory IH ones ? Think they were available in 9 or 12 inch. I have a set of 9s around. Only used them 1 or 2 seasons, then figured I didn't need them.
  13. On 6 new F-350s diesels I have never got a spare, all were ordered to my specs. The 99 took about 6 months to get.
  14. x2 Limited front wheels to 4 or 5 ft off the ground.
  15. 2-300s, 2 - 4020s, & used to have 2 - 856s
