  1. 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

  2. I broke down and had the old boy and the trailer wheels professionally polished yesterday , still need to buff and wax the white . I have owned this truck for ten years now and it’s a really nice truck and never gets run in the winter , well one time in all these years and washed top to bottom when it got home . It’s a 1998 , 379 , 470 hp series 60 Detroit and a super ten tranny . Danny

  5. 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

  6. Bought this 856 3 years ago and wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with it. It had a Westendorff loader on it that I immediately got rid of. came with wide front and 18.4x 34 rears. Tach shows 6xxx hours on a working tach but seller said it had rolled over. So thinking it has over 16000 hours. It has an IH turbo and manifold off a TD 15 dozer we think. It dynos out at 135. Spring of 2018 I plowed 300 acres with a 5/16 510 plow and it pulled like a new tractor and only used 1 quart of oil and used 5.6 gallon of fuel per hour. Had a few oil leaks that we fixed before painting. Local

  7. 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!

  11. 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...

  13. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. 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

  19. 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

  21. 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

  23. 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

  24. 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.

  28. 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

  30. 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

  35. I'm re-reading an aviation book that I first read almost 40 years ago - 'THE SAGA OF IRON ANNIE' by Martin Caidin, it describes the the history of the Junkers Ju52, a German tri-motor transport developed in the 1930's and widely used in WWII and Caidin's re-building of the only flying example in the United States. This morning I turned to page 174 and at the bottom of the page is a picture of the Ju52 arriving at the Confederate (as it was known prior to political correctness) Air Force airshow in Harlingen Texas on Oct 9, 1975. A crowd of people is surrounding the airplane to congratulat

  39. You can’t compare the current state of Affairs to the 70’s. 80’s. And 90’s people back then knew what gender they were , social media hadn't been invented so there was no platform for idiots to hide behind a keyboard, libtards had less of an influence on the meek and undereducated. It’s a whole new world now and new isn’t always better.

  40. Back in January I was fortunate enough to be contacted by a gentleman who had purchased our 1980 1486 tractor back on our farm sale in 89 when we were scaling back. It had always been a dream of mine to have one of our former tractors back and of course I went and bought it. We bought the tractor brand new in 1980 from Howard and Hannon implement in laporte Indiana. It has been 30 years since I had seen the tractor. I ended up buying the tractor and brought it home and I’m currently working on getting a few minor things fixed on it And eventually it will be restored. Dad and I both kind of had

Sister Connie, 2 yrs older, and I got off the bus to a field littered with bales of hay on a hot spring day. Sigh... Mom,tending to pots on the stove, advised us to get clothes changed as Dad was waiting for us. We drudged to he barn where Dad was backing the WD 45 to the wagon. I lifted the tongue and dropped the pin in. Darkness was falling as Dad backed the last load into the barn. Go get your supper he said. We

So today I put the duals on for some pictures. Now when I can get it to some shows, it will look complete!! Even found a set of oem original paint battery covers!!

Isn't that discrimination?🤣 Trey Gowdy's PERFECT Response: "Nobody has a right to serve in the Military. Nobody! What makes you people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer? It is very far from it - and for good reasons - let me cite a few. The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too
