  1. Matt, I knew I shouldn't have mentioned your archaic wooden grain box. Now YOU'LL go to an auction and bring home a RUBBER TIRE grain drill and fire right back at me. Dang it.... I'll guarantee you, Mike will seed with his metal grain box Van Brunt until it quits in its tracks. (Fessing up) Actually, I tried to find him a wooden box drill, so it would fit in even better with the old junk we thresh with. But, a friend at Columbia Falls gave Mike the "metal grain box" Van Brunt, so I quit looking. "MABLE"! I like that name! It sort of packs a whammy, just like a McCormick W-9 does. Mike and I have our tractors named for the people that owned them prior; Toot, Annie, Johnny and Fred, all IH Tractors on a Montana Farm. Randy's Farmall A, "Aimee" is just a name off of the wall too. Now, Mike has a 1957 Chevy Belair. He named it Gertrude and no Gertrude owned it before (I don't think?). Gary?

  4. Just thinking about Gary providing the Music for Mabeline: I think he will need to install a turbocharger on his squeezebox------that will take some huffing and puffing from both he and the squeezebox!!!!? DD

  5. Mabel sure sounds appropriate for the W-9----------she is a good looking ol' girl. With all of what Matt has in the barn------maybe Mabel will come up with a running mate named Mabeline. Gary can provide us the music for Mabeline!!! Only tractor I ever had a name for was my 1943 model TD-14-----I called her Ol' Mama. (she is "resting" under the shed) DD

  7. So we had a little treat tonight.... No, it wasn’t watermelons from The Avon MS area. It was fresh wild turkey. (Not from a bottle DD ?). I was lucky enough to sneak up on one late yesterday morning. Turned into this

  8. Well it’s been awhile since I posted anything but got a lot done. The weather here has been crazy so I haven’t got a much as I would have like for. Put a new volt meter on the tractor. Put a new ignition switch on it. Today we put the first coat of primer. Have a lot left to do before I start spraying orange but I can’t wait to see it orange and done.

  9. Gary, my aspiration is to up-grade to a grain drill with RUBBER tires but you sure have me over a barrel at this point. A wooden barrel at that! ? I almost pulled the trigger on an IH drill at an auction last fall and passed on a couple JD drills last spring. If one comes up cheap again, it will come home. I had to SLOWLY pull my drill to my first field 5 miles from home. I’m glad nothing rattled off on the way! Today I worked over the 14 acre field with this duckfoot cultivator and drag. I’m “big-timing” it by being able to cut a 12’ swath instead of 8’ with that disk at the other field. We’ve never called our tractors an actual name, just the model. But I think since the W-9 has been lucky enough to appear on your thread a few times, I’ll call this IH tractor on a Montana farm “Mable”. She’s nothing fancy, kinda old but is a hard worker and is always dependable!

  11. I have noticed that I need to delete some pictures. I thought I would try to get some of the things that I have made / modified / etc on one thread. First two pictures are a tree stand I made as I hate the flimsy ones available. The seat is a tire tread bolted to it like a hammock. It's fairly comfortable given the fact that squirrels and other wildlife leave it alone then it's a subframe I made to hook on the front 22 weight bracket on a boxcar Magnum to plow snow. The back end hooks to the front of the drawbar. This allows for the drawbar to be used to pull something at the same time if needed .

  12. This is Cinchs first cow. It was repaired many times before I took it from him. I took this pic for comparison. He had a favorite stick that he took everywher until I let him bring it in the house. It would soon be sawdust. His toys dont last long.

  14. Rusted out tailgate on the Kubota rtv900 we folded it in half with a fence post the other day. It has 4,881 hours, State soaks the road with calcium chloride constantly even though it doesn't control the dust at all. Had some 11 gauge already bent for another job. Little bit heavy but it will work. It will be flat black when I get done.... Only had half a can, used gloss black for the first coat. I reused the original ends and latches.

  19. Living on the river, my dogs ran till they got old. Hated it. Gus even got caught in a leg hold trap once. The only way I could keep them from hunting was to tie up the border collie. Than came home to a rabid skunk chasing him around the pole I had him chained to. My son had a Visla and a wireless shock collar thing, worked for awhile. Chase figured out if he ran hard enough, the collar would quit shocking him when he got out of range of the base. I wish you the best of luck. It is a terrible feeling to come home and your dog is out of calling range.

  20. Just look at that face! How can you doubt him? Labs like carrying things around just like my Weimeraner. When he is happy, he looks for things to pick up and carry. Like helping me feed the bucket calves when I have them.?

  25. Matt, that Super M is screaming, START ME UP!!! That is the ultimate in the letter Farmall series! And that Farmall C looks like a boy scout helping a little old 87 year old widow across a busy street, hitched to that wooden box Van Brunt grain drill! We've been getting our snow lately. This was our "April Fools" snow. This was our Good Friday snow. The other had completely melted and not run off. This one is not running off, but slowly melting too. The Good Lord Willing, this will be the scene here at Silver creek before too long. A Farmall M and Van Brunt grain drill. I'm not trying to rub it in that Mike has the latest "galvanized grain box" and not the archaic wooden type! ? Toot is an IH Tractor on a Montana Farm! This scene WILL be re-created! Aimee is an IH Tractor on a Montana Farm as well! Gary?

  26. Been anxious to find a use for the newly acquired 1486 so threw on a 3 pt bale unroller I built and fed some hay to the cows after our little blizzard last night. Bonus was I got mother to cake for me? Think I'm really going to like the "14" over my 966. Can't wait to get it on the baler this summer.?

  27. Hey that looks familiar Gary! Tell them guys they have their bundle pitching pace off just a tad for that machine! Lol. Hope we get to pitch some bundles this summer. Heres a couple IH tractors on a Montana farm. The Super MTA rebuild is coming along. Have to do a complete rewire and clean out the hydraulic reservoir before I can fire her up. But the weather was nice last week so this was my focus instead. The 16 acre field of sod worked up nicely and the Van Brunt drill faithfully put the oats in the ground Friday before the weather turned on us Saturday. Tomorrow I’ll start on a 14 acre field and then later in the week my 18 acres. Looks like a chance of more snow/rain on Wednesday. I had a nice ham dinner this evening at a neighbor’s place and ate too much. Happy Easter everyone!!

  28. I have only one other video I can post here. I should have learned how to down videos to YouTube. I'm not that technology savvy. Our steam engineer at our 2018 threshing day, Andy Troutwine, had his mother there. She's adept and I just swiped this off of Facebook! Note nephew Randy's IH Tractor on a Montana Farm, Aimee, pulling the bundle trailer. Gary?

  29. Reason brought this brochure is because of the recent 766 with a white cab. Very similar brochures, one north of the border, other for south of it. Pictures inside are in a different order.

  31. I have welded a serial number on most things I have made in the last 15 years along with the date . This helps with figuring out how long things are lasting. An undercarriage we are rebuilding . Was from the neighbors Houle 6000 gallon tank they replaced..I bought it for scrap price. We had it under a different spreader for the last 8 years. Now to get it to fit under the Calumet spreader we bought new in 97 and re-tanked 3 years ago. It's now 4600 and started as a 3750 .
