  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  7. ...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

  8. 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).

  9. We are missing a few gears in the 12 speed PS transmission in the 9170 . Was a sudden development, there one minute, weak the next. We had our pressures checked out and it needs to be rebuilt. I am swapping out with a remanufactured one from Big Tractor Parts for time reasons. Really close to lifting the transmission out . I would love to do a decent paint job on it while it's easier to reach. All I have to do is lift the hood off to paint it and it couldn't be any easier to get it done

  11. I thought I’d share a few pictures. I cut the waterways on 1 of our farms yesterday. I planned to do this 3 weeks ago but got busy and couldn’t get it done before going on vacation for 10 days. So it’s too mature and not as good of quality as it could have been…but as my Grandpa used to say it will be better than chewing on a snowbank this winter.

  12. Wife said it was before or after anthem, not during? (Doesn’t make it right) Just my opinion but taking a knee is disrespectful and does not prove anything but the fact that you are ungrateful of being a US citizen and gifted athlete. All of them that want to be disrespectful like that can stay in Japan. We do not need your selfish attitude here.

  17. This week I was able to cross off another bucket list tractor that I’ve been wanting to buy. This is a 1965 706 gas. I realize it’s not a fancy model or a rare one But we had one years ago and I wanted to have one. It runs good and the TA is strong in it. It’s not perfect and it needs a few things done and added that are missing. I parted out a 706 earlier this year so a lot of those parts will be put on this one. Needs a good bath and a few things but it should shape up nicely. Eventually it’ll get a paint job but for now it’ll be used. 3 more to go on the list lol.

  18. Went to the local fair for the tractor pull yesterday. I had wanted to take the 756 but it's not quite ready for that yet. Loaded up the N/F 45 and headed over Pulled in 4000 and 4500 lb. classes. Tractor did well, driver needs some work. There were a good number of tractors there, tried to get pictures of all the red ones though I may have missed some. Highlight of the day was seeing Kal pull in with the 1456.

  21. I reached out to Aaron Friday for some help with the 756 project. He was engaged after work Friday but said Saturday he could stop at the farm after work. I also sent a text to Iowaboy, the more the merrier, right? Well Aaron got here about 3:30, Iowaboy not too much later. Aaron being very familiar with these things spotted some things I had missed. Long story short, we changed the solenoid out with one from a starter a buddy loaned me. That starter is bad but the solenoid is good! Blew my mind that was the problem. One down, then it would crank, didn't want to start. He noticed 'someone' wired the coil backwards. No idea who would have done that. We got it running after changing the wires around! Still needs plenty of fine tuning but it's alive! Just want to say thanks for all the help guys, was a good afternoon.

  25. Got my Birthday Present Home, 3820D loader, back hoe wasn't to be found, will be a good unit to remove stones and small trees, to break up more new ground. Records show only 611 units build. This is Ser. #600. Carl

  26. Sooooo, physics? The load in the bucket of a front end loader is roughly 6-7 feet (varies by loader model, professor) in front of the front axle, and the weight bracket is probably 3 feet in front of the axle (I measured a 5488, I think on a 656 the weight bracket is closer to the axle, but that’s beside the point). Yeah, physics is involved, alright!! Admit you were off base and stop digging, Buck! At this point, Biden is looking more and more credible!

  27. While the 706 is not one of my favorite IH tractors at all, it is this weeks pick. I just for some reason never had any fancy for a 706. Maybe because as a kid every farm had one and most were choke riding narrow front gassers. Being one of the most die hard IH guys on planet earth I am sure some of you may think it is funny for me to not care for a particular IH model. I do have my favorites of course, and to be honest my IH love starts with 806 and then bigger and newer. I do however enjoy them all. Now back to the 706. The one I have posted today belongs to my brother. It is probably one of very few 706's that I could own. It is a saved from death narrow front gasser. It now has a 414 turbo for the muscle. It has 56 shift, fast hitch, flat top fenders, wide front, two valves, a 14 inch clutch, 11L x 15 fronts and 20.8 x 34 rears. As far as a 706 goes, this one is seriously bad a$$! The boys and I put the 414 in it for him after he saved it from scrap. He said he needed another tractor and always wanted a smaller one with a DT in it. Needless to say he loves it, and for a 706, so do I. Now I know, this is not a true representation of a 706, but it sure is to our family. Anyway, let's see em' y'all!

  28. As far as I am concerned, I don't care who/what/where/when. You take a knee, you disrespect this country, I give you zero respect. Some things are not tolerated. Not negotiable. End of discussion.
