The Doug Fir is about 47 yrs old...but never was thinned. however, there are some good logs up on the hill My old friend turned 80 , a few months ago.....and never want's to die in town !!!! .I am a mere 78 , so we had

  6. Here is our family's, was bought new, my uncle has it right now. A guy it Kentucky has the one before or after it, I forget which. Started life with 34 inch wheels and then was changed to 38 clamps and as they broke got 6 hole wedgelocks. M&W turbo was added after warranty expired and a year round cab was added after many years too. It got the 14" clutch and then some rear end work along the way. It pulled an 8 row 800 planter was it's biggest job for many years, was the first one in the neighborhood at that time. The weight of the 8 row broke the 3pt until it was replaced with a 120

  7. Y’all remember last July when I bought 3.25 adjoining acres that was grown up? Spent lots of time but got it seeded in the fall with Fescue, Orchard Grass, Clover, and Rye Grass. This is the result. Gonna make nice hay. Next pic is my original field. We no-tilled Fescue, Orchard Grass, and Ladino Clover into the already established grasses. The Ladino is poking its head up. We fertilized and limed per soil samples. Hopefully the sage grass crowded out. Didn’t have a huge issue with sage but normally when there’s sage there’s a lack of lime. Lots of work but I’m liking the results.

  8. I won't say where but someone I know goes to a church , a really big church and it never missed a service since this whole thing started . They have not forced masks, supposedly 10% or so wear them . No issues they have seen at all. They decided to leave everyone make their own decisions the way I understand

  9. I know these guys. Three old brothers who farm together. Air drill is a Flexi Coil 5000 57’ or so they bought for $15,000 at an auction. Crawler is an AC HD 16. They farm with 2 of them and are pretty much the last guys around here to farm with the old steel track crawlers.

  10. I have an RV generator project I have been working on. This is a little water cooled Honda 2 cylinder EV4010 4KW genset. After changing the fuel pump and carburetor and doing some fab work for a frame and fitted in a battery it was a runner. BUT was loud as heck without anything but an exhaust pipe for a muffler. I looked around for a suitable muffler and decided to heck with the little muffler and just got the same muffler that our little Nissan car has and modified it to fit. I cut my own gaskets out of gasket paper and bolted it all together. Then engine would not startup,

  11. My Two 806,s , the L.P. had just been restored, the first pic of bean cutter was when I had just acquired it, It had been sitting in a open shed since 2012. The bottom pic is after engine rebuild,( had a dancing sleeve) new tires, Wiring ,Radiator, All new hyd. hoses, etc. and everything repaired ,Basically restored without the paint. horizontal knives are off. That 806 with four row bean cutter has cut over 17000 acres of blackeye beans in its life time, Its last year cutting was in 2012 it cut 650 acres. I don't want to paint it because the paint wear patterns show where beans passed

  19. I bought this one in 2000 with a bad engine. I did the major engine overhaul in my shop. Another one saved. It was on it's way to a salvage yard. Was a couple miles south of me. Was at the right place at the right time.

  24. Warning for a photo dump of the same tractor... But here's my 66 806, bought it in late 2016 from a tractor jockey/salvage yard. It had 2 spun rod bearings, and was dusted. Built the engine from scratch, added the turbo setup. Always changing something on it. Have something planned for the next month or 2 so stay tuned. But enough rambling on to the pics. It gets used for a little of everything around home. If it's got a hitch it's probably been hooked to it.

  27. Dad wanted a bigger tractor than the Farmall 300 we had in 1967. After trying out 6 or 8 new tractor brands, including a new 706, he heard about a 1964 806 for sale in the Finger Lakes that had been used one year to run an irrigation pump, before the owner died. It arrived- narrow front, no fenders, one remote. (He did buy the 550 plow that was demo'ed with the 706). But what a horse!! This is after it was here several years, with a Schwartz wide front. It got fenders a couple years later, from the new 826 when the 826 got its cab. My brother still has it, 12000 hours on the original never-op

  28. Picked up the all wheel drive 806 in 1983, paid $500.00 . It was a total wreck. Fixed everything and used it until 1995 doing tillage. Restoration was done again in 1999 and don't use it much anymore. The two wheel drive gets used alot. Paid $1500.00 for it with the rear end out. Fixed it in my shop and has been a very good tractor. Would someday like to repaint it but it's always hooked up to something.

  29. Here is my '67 with M&W turbo. She ain't pretty but she ain't a bad ole tractor. Gets used almost daily for something. This one is a '67 I did a complete mechanical and cosmetic restoration on for a fellow forum member a few years back. M&W turbo as well.

  31. Woo Hoo! It worked! Able to raise it and NOT hit the tire or drag on the ground when up in the air! Finally finished! Other than painting it once I know everything works the way I wanted it to. Hopefully in the next week or two I'll actually get to try them out. That is depending on just how much more rain we get this week. We were SO fortunate to get almost 3" of snow on April 30th and it was still around on May 1st. And well its VERY wet around here. Water laying everywhere. Not sure what the guys who already have

  35. Without getting into a senseless argument let’s back up a step and look at the broad picture and not just the speck on the wall. Certainly there is a virus that has caused deaths. If you’re paying attention at all that’s hard to argue. However, when facilities are paid by governments to “count” those deaths it stands to reason those numbers are going to be inflated. We have the most information available on any topic at the tips of our fingers. If we don’t know something we just “ Google it” It’s really a luxury for the vast majority of the world population with exception of a certain

  36. What Pain??? I am simply excersizing my right to decide what I will and will not put in my body. You and anyone else are more than welcome to shoot up. Your body, your call. I look around and see what is working here. I am not alone on a deserted island. No masks, no vax, pretty damn normal here. Except for having to deal with all the BS that filters in. But then, I guess, that is normal too. I will trust my 61 year old immune system to keep me healthy over all the so called experts who are trying so hard to get me to do something that doesn't sit well with me. No

  37. Great Plains Craftsman is another good YouTube channel. He builds a small, 16x20, barn that he closely copied from one I built in 2016. Tradesmen Channel does some things that go against accurate methods, so be cautious. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I have experience with square rule, scribe rule, and using organic forms in timber framing.

  42. Here is one of ours. 1964 model. Originally had a narrow front and clam shell fenders. Dad and the uncle overhauled the motor and put the wide front on back when I was a kid. Repainted it 3 years ago with new 18.4s and has an original ih muffler on it. Just a barn queen now lol. Even got an original radio for it and it works! Hoping to take it to our county fair and possibly 4th of July parade this summer.

  44. On April 28, 1945, the war in Europe was just days away from ending. It was on that day that one of the strangest episodes of the entire conflict played out along the German-Czechoslovakian border. More than 350 American GIs had just fought their way through enemy lines to reach the town of Hostau. The settlement, which was still in the hands of a detachment of Wehrmacht soldiers, was home to some remarkably valuable treasure: several hundred prized Lipizzaner horses. The famous and extremely rare animals, which had been seized by the Third Reich as part of a bizarre wartime livestock breedin

  45. The fact that your perfectly fine with the government telling people what then can and can't do, instead of allowing the citizens to decide for themselves what their own risk level is in life. Speaks volumes on where this country is headed. Humans are terrible at deciphering perceived risk VS actual risk. The actual risk with covid is, and always was no more than the common cold, the perceived risk was perpetuated by the .Gov. People bought it hook line and sinker because they're terrible and deciphering perceived vs actual.
