  1. Got a good bit of our project done. Storm came up and chased us out of the field. We should be able to wrap it up some evening this week. 4 of us. 2 1066’s a 1466 and a 1206. Didnt get a pic of the 1206. The canopy tractor is my 1975 1066 pulling a 720 5-16’ s. The second nice looking tractor is a sharp looking original 1974 1066 pulling a 5-16 1450 deere plow owned by a friend. I was driving my 1466 ser 7103 on a 730 plow set on 5-18’s.

  2. For years I have maintained that I didn't want or need a disc mower and I was completely content with my sickle machines. Well this year we have had two hail storms that pummeled my 1st and 3rd cuttings both into the ground. I was only able to creep through alot of my first cutting and plugged a couple times- it was very frustrating. So I went ahead and found this like new DCX163 (same as NH 316) and my cutting time has nearly halved for alot of my fields. It sure doesn't cut light grass hay like a sickle and those fields are so rough I didn't pick up any cutting speed but I can really fly in my irrigated grass/alfalfa and grain hay. I don't think it conditions quite as well as my Hesston 1275 but it might be because I'm traveling so much faster. I would like to put a set of crushing rollers in to see if that improves it.

  3. The small town of Avoca located in the southern tier of NY had there 1st annual agfest to raise money for their town park. It was unusual because there was a tractor show on one end of the town and a car show on the other--with a tram running between them every 1 min. This worked out very well with the ag people enjoying country music in there area and the car show people enjoying there type of music. Some tractor pics first

  4. Attended a truck show yesterday, and this beautiful 4300 was there. Its first showing as the owner just finished it the night before. Thought you guys would enjoy the pics.

  5. I’d like to have that with a steel box around the top and a case of old Milwaukee for when they come to get me for the nursing home. I’d want the muffler off that screaming detroit for more effect.

  6. They somehow followed me home from the tractor show, so I guess I'll find a spot on the wall for them. The battery cable sign I've seen before but not the tune up one.

  7. Instead of put some harvest pics, I would share with you an experience I did this past week end! I did about one hour and a half on a hot air balloon! I did it in the Champagne area, between Reims, Epernay and Chalons en Champagne. It was really nice to do, and grape harvest has started on some town! As you can see, there is plains (chalk soils, very clear, almost white), then grape vine, and on the top of the hill, it is the forest. This hill is called "la montagne de Reims", or in English the Reims mountain. A few numbers... 1 hectare worth between 1.5 and 2 millions of euros (the same in US$) when it is in the champagne protected area (to make wine of course). It is among the mosts expensives soils in France. In the plain, a farmer was harvesting potatoes. Enjoy the view in the sunrise!

  10. maroon 1967 Mustang fastback 289 4 speed, like my cousin bought new. He gave me a few rides home from college in it. Later, he rolled it and totaled it. If that is too low/cramped to get into, I could settle for a 1967 GTO. Actually, I reasoned that I would never have a '67 GTO, so I bought a '67 1206 to compensate.😄

  13. Update; Finally got the old girl running today. Somehow I got the pump timing off. A buddy of mine stopped at the farm, had him watch the exhaust while I cranked the engine. Little bit of smoke, not much. Set the crank back to 15 degrees, pulled the gear off the pump, it's out by like 45 degrees. How did that happen?? Reset it and tried again, not even any smoke. Spun it 360 degrees and it lit! Will finish putting it back together this week, really a good feeling to hear it run.

  14. Looks just like me when I personally drove the tractor into the leech field mowing even after the lady in charge told me that the tall vegetation covers the sink hole! Another one of our drivers got stuck in the same hole twice coming from different directions. I didn't realize I was back at the hole!

  16. Yeah I have found the middle setting with the locking pin is about right most of the time for me. But I'm cutting this hailed down 3rd as I type this so I've got it tilted all the way down to cut underneath everything.

  17. All you need to do is chase the lift line to the "T", cap it off, and run a hose to the tractor if you want a seperate tilt circuit. I only tilt mine a couple times per cutting when on the go so have never seperated the circuits. Working on trading my 7 season 316 for next year, has been good. 2 guards, 3 shock hubs, and knives been it since new. Its my 6th New Holland center pivot discbine since 1999 and my most liked due to quick change knives

  22. After putting some thought in it I kept falling back on a 79 Ford f-250, four wheel drive of course, four speed manual with a modest lift. Then I also remember that trucks really didn't get "refined" until the late 80s or early 90s so if I was looking for comfort and convenience I would go with that series gm, probably a three quarter ton with a manual. I already have my plow truck which is a 94 but its only a half ton with an automatic.

  25. What’s with the hydraulic line for the hitch coming up the right side of the scuttle panel and back down again? As seen in your stuck and troubled pictures

  26. 10-4 on the steel rolls. I figured they were rubber chevron. I think a good steel on steel conditioner will out perform any rubber on rubber. I used to think otherwise but it seems the industry has gotten steel rollers figured out. Really baffles me why Hesston/Massey doesn’t offer the Twin Max on pull types.

  27. Hey guys busy few days my friend and his sons last day yesterday they flew home. My folks watched the little man for a bit and three of us went for a bike ride. Buddy rode the Harley near 100 miles, I took a Friends kawi 1100ltd and he rode his 2000 Vulcan. The Harley ran perfect except for a major oil leak at a push rod tube. Stopped and dumped some oil in just after half way. Fixed that this morning. Got a tractor question for you guys here... anyone have information on the Fairbanks Morse FM4B3 magneto? I’m helping an internet friend from England get his set up. It’s on a war time equipped Ford 2N. Not really the original mag but it works. I have the same tractor with a different mag (can’t remember off hand what’s on it) but my problem is similar to what he described but without knowing his mag it’s hard to say if it’s the exact problem. My issue is that my mag has impulse retard AND centrifugal advance. This causes too much advance once running if set where the tractor will start from the retarded position. I plan to pin my centrifugal advance and rely on the impulse retard for starting. Thinking he has a similar issue but not sure he has centrifugal advance. Possibly just has to change his impulse cup to one with less retard?

  30. What makes you think it's a cut down 411 vs. a stock 211? At least in this era, the first number of the plow model indicated number of bottoms. There was a 211 2-bottom, 311 3-bottom, and a 411 4-bottom. 211: 311: 411:

  32. ...years ago , I worked for a major NZ construction company..on a big railway over head bridge...They had an old Mack..as Hardtail has pictured..it was a 6x6...and had a big pile driver thing on its back...powered by a five cylinder Gardner Diesel engine...physically it was very big !! Drove it down the east coast of the South Island ...and stopped at a little petrol station, at a place called Conway River... The owner was overjoyed at the petrol powered Mack's presence...as it took around two hundred imperial gallons of feul to fill its auxillary petrol tanks...probably sold more petrol that day , than he would have in a week, normally Mike

  33. Coyotes eat grapes from the vineyards here, and "sign" can be several miles from any vineyard. So with hundreds of acres and being available to coyotes almost 3 months of the year, I don't take the experts to seriously about how grapes will kill your dog.

  35. Ryan , I always guessed you are north of the 401 around Guelph or Milton? that dirt looks pretty light esp when that 200 didn't struggle to pull a 3 bottom 8C plow. I thought the land was heavier up there and hard esp this year Anyhow that was a fantastic video and thanks for making and posting it! love it 😎

  36. I never really thought about that the 600+650 don't have any TA or a live PTO. Still would be nice to feel the response to the throttle opening up as you advance the lever

  39. Hey guys. I picked this 3488 tractor up earlier in the week and trying to figure out what it really was. The Rear casting by the pto is yellow and the serial number tag was yellow at one point. It looks like it was repainted black so just trying to figure out it’s past life. It’s a standard drawbar hydro with this tiller behind it. There was a military 3488 a few years ago and it’s the closest thing it kind of matches up with.
