  1. Brad lived in California and was a lifelong environmentalist. He was sick of the world; of Covid-19, Brexit, Russian belligerence, China, global warming, ethnic tensions, and the rest of the disturbing stories that occupy media headlines. Brad drove his car into his garage and then sealed every doorway and window as best he could. He got back into his car and wound down all the windows, selected his favorite radio station, started the car and revved it to a slow idle. Two days later, a worried neighbor peered through his garage window and saw him in the car. She notified the emergenc

  2. On December 28th, 2019, I finally was able to bring back a 1256 to the farm. The 1256 that dad had was sold in 1986 and is currently being used locally. Lots of memories on the fender of a 1256. Dad knew of this 1256 so after a few years was able to get it bought. I am now the 3rd owner. The tractor sat for a long time - some figure 25 years+. Most would say it was not worth saving but a 1256 was on my bucket list and this made it even more of a challenge, yet appreciate the final project even more. Every piece of tin and parts were removed and glass beaded. Dad ppp(glass beading) and

  5. Linda's FB post from May 1: 40 years ago, Bill and I bought the farm. Literally. (Not figuratively, yet, by the grace of God.) We raised our kids here. Started over after our dairy barn (the one in this photo) burned to the ground. Survived cancer, a nearly fatal chopper accident, and various other injuries and illnesses. We've had some profitable years and some years when, in effect, Bill paid thousands of dollars for the privilege of working 70 hour weeks in all weathers to produce food for other people. (There's no minimum "living wage" for the farm owner when costs skyrocket and milk

  9. Left to right: 856, 1256, and 1026 Goldy 856 by itself. Purchased unrestored from original owner. He said tach has rolled over once so it has just over 16,000 hours on it. Motor has been overhauled several times. Don't know about the rest of it but I plowed 300 acres with it 2 years ago and it used 1 quart of oil and runs like a scalded rabbit. Pulls 140 on the dyno. jerry

  10. I know some of these have been shared by me before probably, but here are some farm pictures just for fun. I really enjoy pictures and honestly don't take near enough. I like all the farm pictures that are shared here of all the classic IH machines. So here is a little bit of our farm simply for viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

  13. Figured I'd put up some photos from the year of our two bit operation Cut and sold a load of ash logs in February. Probably would've gotten more cutting them into firewood and selling them that way. Pulled it to the steep hill out of the woods. Had to buck it to get it out. Scaled about 250 board feet in that log March was dry and warm beginning of April was nice. Feeding good third cutting haylage out of one end and corn silage from the other How I haul sawdust. Lucky to have two mills close by Had more snow in April than March. April 17th

Called the wife and she said she had tomorrow off. I texted the "boys" and said the truck is parked for the night, I ain't runnin' Chance brought his young bride over, we cracked the cap on a handle of Crown, ate smokies and applesauce and popcorn and watched round six. kept politics, the state of the nation and anything anywheres near stressfull off bounds.

  16. Yeah, many most don't wanna discuss these cause we have enough to worry about. A few blacks die at the hand of un/non blacks and the country comes apart. I'm sick of BLM/covid/politicians/riots/welfare bums/entitlements and all the paranoid people in this country. We kill thousands upon thousands of babies and abduct and abuse alter boys/ boy scouts and sex traffic children and I'm supposed to give a $hit about BLM? Absolutely pathetic group of whining lazy leeches. Next I'll share my true feelings. Say good night Dick...

  18. Hello, everyone. Randy Sohn was my wonderful uncle, and I'm the person who put up the Facebook post about his passing on Wednesday evening. On behalf of Randy's wife Judy, and his children Sari and Mike, and all of us in the family, I just want to say that the outpouring of love and respect for him from so many of you here is so heartwarming. Thank you for that. It means so much to us. Randy's obituary will be in the Minneapolis Star Tribune and the St. Paul Pioneer Press in the next couple of days. The Star Tribune is also working on a feature story about his life. I will keep you posted

  20. I worked night shift through the weekend so when I got up this morning to be off for a day I decided to clear a small trail in the woods with enough room to camp and introduce my 3.5 yr old to the woods. Cleared off enough room to get through and raked the debris back. Made a small fire to cook on and got out some cast iron. Going to have beef and barley stew in a little bit.

  21. Well I finally got the new decals for my 1066 narrow front, and had a few minutes to get it out of the shop for a drive and some pictures. Sorry it’s dirty from being in the shop so long waiting for decals, but here it is! I tried a different type of decals on this quick hitch, I kind of like them!

  22. Buddy calls me this morning. He`s out in the woods checking creek for fish. He comes across a scared/soaking wet/trembling basset hound. It won`t allow him near to check for ID. He doesn`t want to leave the dog alone. He asks me what to do and says his cell signal is weak. I call our local shelter and they give me the number of a gal who reported she lost a basset but MANY miles away from where dog is. I call and gal answers. Ask her for description and dogs name. Told her how to get to my buddies location. She shared her 2 kids have been cry

  23. My father is always commenting on how every obituary paints every person out to be a saint. “Salt of he earth, give you the shirt off his back, knit sweaters for homeless turtles and rescued kittens from mine shafts on his way to volunteer at the homeless shelter. Loved by one and all” I got into it with my MIL about George Floyd the other day, that a royal A-hole has been made a martyr by the whole country. But it brings up a point hat I have been arguing for years, I get crap for being flippant and irreverent about death, but dead is dead, and there’s no point using hushed voices about

  25. Hello Taxpayers, Sometimes this year, we taxpayers will again receive another economic stimulus payment. It is indeed a very exciting program, and I’ll explain it by using a Q&A format: Q: What is an Economic Stimulus payment? A: It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers. Q: Where will the government get this money? A: From taxpayers. Q: So, the government is giving me back my own money? A: Only a smidgen of it. Q: What is the purpose of this payment? A: The plan is for you to use the money t

  26. I can't remember the last time I needed you. Six months, a year? Gave you some love or a fresh tank of gas. Even longer? You are sitting behind an old pickup and another tractor. I see you have no hyd fluid left (not really your fault, it's the leaky old campaigner DuAl loader that is the culprit there). You let some of the air out of one of your back tires. And somebody robbed your battery for a more important project I'm sure. Every time I bring something new home I tell the missus "maybe better let the old girl go on Big Iron to help with the new purchase". She always says she sh

  29. I got a call from a fellow dairy farmer. His Dad and uncle had a 460 high utility that they bought new. It was the first 6 cyl, first power steering tractor I ever drove. After we moved 7 miles to the bigger farm in 1958, we still did the hay at the old farm, where my grandparents lived. All Dad had for a side rake was an old David Bradley hay beater, that whipped all over the road if you went more than 6 mph (maybe even 5?). He borrowed a NH #90 pto rake from the next door neighbors, and the 460 was hooked to it. For a 11 or 12 year old whose job was raking, it was quite a deal! I asked the o

  30. Figured it out. I had been inadvertently feeding Yin, delving too deeply and constantly into election bs, covid info and general state of America. All dark crap. So I backed off and fed Yang. Took grandkids shopping twice for Christmas for their parents, with sit-down meals at a restaurant, singing in the car, wrapping presents and getting to see the world through their eyes. Yang is strong again. All is well.

  32. I know we have more than just a few pulling fans on this board. This Saturday (Aug 29th) night I'm going to make my first pass on the tractor I built a the pull in Mt Pleasant, PA. There are definitely traces of several famous IH Super Stocks incorporated into the design. This is a bonafide 806 all the way thru. We're running a D361 (on alcohol), 806 rearend and Binder Lite sheetmetal by the late Ted Dibble. I've read so many good stories on here over the years about the early years of pulling. This tractor is supposed to be a salute to the guys who started the sport and paved the way for thin

  33. Hopefully we will be ready to go. Unfortunately, at this point, we didn’t have any 86 series show up besides the 4386. Also, no black stripe 66 series. But, we did have 3 3488 Hydros, several 50 series, and several other Hydro tractors show up. We may have a few more show up tomorrow.

  37. This has been coming for a couple years now. Bad knees, back and shoulder has made installing DewEze bale beds increasingly more difficult for me. Taking care of the ranch during the day and driving truck at night is using up a large chunk of my 24. It got to the point I dreaded selling a bed because I knew I would have to install it. That isn't fair to a company that has treated me like family for 27 years. As my wife would say I finally "threw my hat over the fence" and told my rep last Friday I would be retiring from DewEze. Today was a day I wasn't looking forwa

  39. The 856 I grew up on was sold on our realignment farm sale back in February of 1999. I put a lot of hours on that tractor, and for some reason, this 856 had snort!! Since the day it left, I’ve missed it! Had a chance 3 years ago to buy it back from another farm sale, but couldn’t get there. Then, this past September I got a phone call to haul grain for a new customer, and the first morning I pulled on his yard, I spotted something, yep, our 856!! I didn’t want to get to nosy until I got to know the guy. Well day number 3 of hauling, he finally asked me why I kept looking at the 856?! I just

They will both get restorations one day after I get my 1979 trucks done. The 766 has the M&W turbo kit on. Tractor has never been touched. The 706 my brother got its a late 67 with d310, narrow front and also has the M&W turbo on it. The second pic is the 1566 being resurrected from its tomb
