  3. Last year on the 4th we decided to park a row of tractors along the road hoping to brighten at least one persons day during the whole covid mess. We didn't tell anyone, we just parked them there for the day. The word must have spread around quickly, because we had steady lookers all day. Our best guess was around 80ish strange to our road pickups that road past. So this year the boys and I decided we would make this an annual tradition at our farm. This year our tractors were out yesterday, today and will be tomorrow. They all go in the shed at night. (The boys say we sleep inside so those girls do too.) This year every tractor sports a pair of American flags, with our big flag flying on top of our boot arch. Here are some pictures of getting them all out and standing along the road and a couple cool flag shots as well. Happy 4th Y'all! Let's remember why this country is what is!

  4. Took the 806 in the local parade yesterday and will be going to the county fair this weekend. Everything got a new coat of paint and put on new 11L15 front tires. Got the original fender radio working and listened to it during the parade route yesterday.

  5. I have been at this self employed thing almost a 2 years now and haven't had a sign out by the road yet. My Wife thought it was time and surprised me with this one on Fathers Day. I finally had a chance to put it up tonight. Now I can tell customers to look for the sign instead of look for all the equipment setting around when they drop stuff off. I look back on summer of '19 when I took the chance and went out on my own and how scary it was to now scheduling work a month or better out because there is just so much of it. Phone is ringing all the time. Im tempted to hire someone but not sure I want to go there. Already out growing my shop and my truck but they will both have to do for the time being. So far its been a good ride. I haven't had much time to take many pictures lately but here are a few since everyone likes pictures.

  6. I have a modest collection of old IH tools, that I've picked up here and there over the years. I thought I'd post, since I put them all in one place today. I don't think any of them are particularly valuable or anything; I just like having them.

  9. I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone on this forum, I started farming at 36 (12 years ago) I was raised in the city and wanted nothing more than to have my own land. When I bought my first tractor I had to take out a loan for it, that was my 1086FWA, since then I have managed to collect several different IH's and put them all to good use but my 1086 is still my favourite. I recently replaced the MCV pump with some help from you all once again I'm going round and round. I really appreciate all the help and advice you all share, So again, Thank you Don

  10. Having a hard time finding my way back to Spokane. After Red Power, I rode down to Nashville to visit the grandaughter. Had a great time with her, washing "Red" watching fireworks, and just being silly. I must have taken a wrong turn leaving Nashville, because after 3 days of riding, I ended up in Shamrock TX. Saw a couple nice looking LPG Farmalls, sitting along the road, north of McLean. Decided to enjoy the view of Rotan NM, and take stock of the situation. Guess it's time to head north and see if Spokane has completely melted away. I'll keep you posted. BK

  12. Pulled the trigger on a new shed this winter before the big price hikes. It's a 52x80 heated shop with 18 side walls. I'm putting a 28 ft hydraulic door on it. In the last pic I'm building the overhead storage that'll run the length of the shop over my work bench. I'm waiting on the door, electric and how I'm going to pay for it.

  14. Picked this up today. Last on the road in 1991. I hate cats and that shed had a couple dozen or more in it. Poop in the dirt everywhere. The plus is zero mice in the car. The bad was they pee'd on the car and you can see it on the paint down low. All original 7X,XXX miles on it.

  15. As I mentioned in the 3788 thread. We bought a 7230 Magnum at the end of June. Got a ok deal on it knowing a few things needed to be fixed but were ok with that. It was delivered Tuesday and we have spent a little time addressing some of the issues. None major or really mechanical in nature. Not the most beautiful paint job on it anymore but otherwise it looks and operates great. Happy with the purchase at the moment.

  16. Been staying busy the last couple months, wrapped up school in mid May and earlier I was elected 2nd Vice President for Associated Student Government at our local two year Junior College. I have 15 different yards I mow along with working for other people, gardening, and about anything else I can find that interest me. I got into matchbooks earlier this year and most are from my grandpa. Two came from Sandhiller. The emblems on the wood are from a chestfreezer that got scrapped a few years ago. When I got matchbooks I put those three between plexiglass, the two outside ones aren’t IH but they both have IH trucks on them. Then I found on eBay a service manual for my 3331 push mower. It also talks about two other mowers and the manual was printed in March 1975. The other I got at auction is from 1980 is of the 7100 and 7200 drill. Third picture are some pieces I got off three different trucks at the scarp yard. Finally my 1586 I got off a FB page that is an original from 1976 and I don’t think it’s been played with hardly. The other is a 966 Hydro I got on an online auction that’s also in real nice shape. Should be from 1972….. you never stop collecting lol

  20. Love doing that . I chased down a 400 big cam Cummings motor ( New in crate) once and it was supposed to be a guys place with no phone. All I knew was the town about three hours away , I grabbed some cash and went looking. Stopped in the tiny town of 200 people and went into the bar, asked if they knew him and where he lived. Got directions and took off on some gravel and then dirt roads , pulled into his place and a women and three young kids met me in the driveway with a hay trailer pulled by an M International tractor. They had no idea who I was or why I was there. I parked off to the side of the drive way , jumped out and said “ I’m here to help “. Jumped on to the trailer and without hesitation she drove out into the field and we immediately started to pick up bails . I threw em onto the trailer as fast as I could to those three kids and they stacked em as high as that trailer could hold. Her husband was running a 560 and bailer and as we went by each other in the field I could see him looking over at us . Pretty quick we had a full trailer , she stopped , he stopped, they both approached the trailer and said “ who the **** are you? Long story short , I bought the motor and it’s in my Peterbilt , helped pick up the rest of the hay, put it in the barn and had supper with them . Got home around 1 AM that night. I’m still telling that story and I bet they are too. A very fun afternoon and evening.

  23. ...few weeks gone, the Shepherd from the Rainbow Station, where I ''part time " , took me down to the Kekerangu Station.....A very big family outfit running 10,000 stock units. Its a huge , hilly property, running from the coast to rising up to several thousand feet at its highest point..... Its very broken country...with miles of "farm tracks' winding up some very steep faces ... There is one only elderly Green wheel tractor , but with a very expensive post driver mounted to the tractor's back.....Contractors put in winter feed crops etc on the "cultivatible " land..nearer the sea....although the land finishes in a 'terrace' sort of, well above the high tide mark... The property has a musterer/hunting hut way back in the hills......typical NZ back country hut, with a big home made stove/ fire and some very agricultural plumbing, which provides water for the sink.....and the two external 'bath' tubs...which require a fire lit underneath to provide the necessary warmth.....(No....the quaint South Seas habit of par-boiling the luckless ''men of the cloth'' ceased many years gone.....) Like all these 'disjointed ' high country farms, the tracks take one right around the perifhery of the property.....took about six hours .....of course there plenty of gates to open !!! Some fantastic views from the high points...you can almost see South America from up there....(no...not really...) The two main farm tractors are upmarket track machines.... ...The ancient fellow in the hi-vis, on the hut porch....is me........ Mike

  25. We had our county fair last week and I took the 806 up. Was a good week overall but rainy on a few days. I even got to carry one of the fair queens with me on one of the parade nights. Can’t beat that for a first year! (queen photo courtesy of smoker1s wife Kelli).

  30. Couldn't bring myself to send this to the scrapper. Can't find any casting marks, but I think it is an IH. I seem to remember tagging along with dad to get a part or two. He bought this when I was probably 7 or 8 and I'm 71 now. It was used when he bought it. It was just him and I and I was to small to drive the baler or stack on the rack. So he dropped the bales on the ground. This was mounted on the left side of the 'H' with a rack pinned to the H drawbar. I remember that I couldn't reach the clutch and brake both so dad had to jump off the rack and onto the H on occasion. You had to hit the bales dead on or they would jam in the chute and not feed up the elevator. Kind of tough for a 7 year old kid and no power steering. But I remember those days well. Some of the best memories that last a life time. Wife is turning it into yard art. (sorry for the small pic)

  34. Dang no more giggles at the local coop. Couple weeks ago I needed some supplies, yes a longer nipple. With out thinking I walk in and ask the gal working that day if she ( Meaning the store) had a longer nipple ( face turns red and giggles) as she didn't see I had a pipe nipple in my hand. After she sees what I have she points to the back wall and says back there go fondle them until you find what you need.

  37. Any is enough on a hot day. We always stacked it out of the baler. Never seen a thrower in person. I tossed a wagon load into the loft last night. Took these yesterday afternoon. Baler belongs to my brother and the tractor to another friend as it was his wheat field.

  38. A man walked into the produce section of his local supermarket and asks to buy half a head of lettuce. The boy working in that department told him that they only sold whole heads of lettuce. The man was insistent that they boy ask his manager about the matter. Walking into the back room, the boy said to his manager, "Some a-hole wants to buy half a head of lettuce." As he finished his sentence, he turned to find the man standing right behind him, so he added "And this gentleman kindly offered to buy the other half." The manager approved the deal and the man went on his way. Later the manager found the boy and said "I was impressed with the way you got yourself out of that situation earlier. We like people who think on their feet here. Where are you from son?" "Canada, sir" the boy replied. "Well, why did you leave Canada," the manager asked. The boy said "Sir, there's nothing but hookers and hockey players up there." "Really!" said the manager. "My wife is from Canada." The boy replied, "No kidding??? Who did she play for?
