Amazing collection! You really have found something to do with every piece of equipment and it all looks great! The mini 2+2 is cool and I love the Farmall 606, I'm guessing you have the only one!

You must have one heck of a large shed to house all of those.

Nice,

Welcome to the Forum Carl.

I might have known it was you with a handle like Ruby Red.

I was busy planting & only now checked your thread.

BTW the Dt466 & trany have been transplanted to another truck.

still have to transplant the cab on the old 79, 1954 truck.

Ray.

Added another grain hauler for this years crops, found this #100 Flare box in Illinois through Red Power Magazine - Spent lots of hours repairing and painting box and #52 wagon gear with McCormick hoist, don't believe boxes like this were ever sold new in Ontario Canada

The reason the boxes weren't sold in Canada was explained to my father at the time we bought our #52 wagon in 1955. They were able to get the wagon in duty free if they locally mounted the made in Canada Firestone Champion tires. Since there were several box builders in Canada at the time there was a large duty on the Knapheide boxes that made them cost prohibitive. If I remember right there was at least one box builder in both Ontario and Quebec and you had to buy their boxes to avoid duty. However, Dad wanted his for a hay rack so the box was a moot point. I have seen a considerable number of #52's in Ontario and Quebec but never one with a box on it other than one that had an old Turnco 150 bushel box that was obviously made much later (like in the mid 1960's). The standard set up was with a hay rack.  Of course by the 1970's the duty was abolished with the free trade act.

What machine was the 606 Farmall built from? 656 with a 221 engine? 504 with a 221?

Our 606 Farmall was build from a 504 Farmall, which we found as a parts tractor, less the engine, so at the same time we were retiring our 303 combine with a perfectly good 6 cyl. 221 engine, same engine used in Int 606 utility, lengthened frame channel rails and sheet metal 7", build new rad with extra tubes for increased cooling and installed 606 badges.

Just finished applying 28% nitrogen on to sweet corn and popcorn, cultivating rows for the last time and it will be too tall. The Potatoes and Soybeans will still be possible several times and the weeds will be beat.
