  2. Back prior to 2006 any SMTA running would bring 10,000.00 . I have watched prices on SMTA drop to current levels. Mine was a fence row tractor with shinny paint on it when i bought it but it was what I wanted had all the bells and whistles I was looking for. IE : LP, single front , hydraulic tree hydraulics I had to restore it three time to get it to my minds eye. It was wore out front to rear ! I love it and have spent a fortune on it but the pleasure it gives me to look at it ,I cannot put a price on . It’s basically a new tractor now . Have no idea how much it would take to buy it from me. I know no one would be crazy enough ! Btw my BIL driving top pic me on bottom pic tony
  3. Sorry to here this ! our prayers with him ! tony

  9. I was watching the cotton picker, But knew it was older restoration and at minimum needed a set of tires upon arrival here . The killer was the 10400.00 hauling quote to Cali. So, I cooled my heels and kept my hands in my pocket. Tony

  13. Hi Guys , Been laying low this summer no projects going (yet) However , was asked to participate in the Kerman , ca . harvest festival parade . the parade Marshall was 92 year old jean Hardie known as the John Deere queen and cotton queen so only fitting they pulled her in parade with my 30 foot green cotton trailer pulled by a new John tractor I entered the SC and 28 FH mower , SMTA and 71 baler , La Case lp being it was from a long time Kerman family, Carol drove Herbie my latest IH truck also . my son on SC , Grandson of original owner of case driving , me on SMTA, Carol in Herbie, the older lady in center of my cousins is Jean Hardie being celebrated in her farm community , the fellow on the Fergie 40 is my friend and Kerman farmer Joe Porto on his Late fathers tractor . few pictures the estimate 2000- 2500 people lined the street in this small Calif Central Valley farm community wish pictures were better settings but all my picture takers were driving something so we took from the seats. Tony
  14. Yes Alan, the top one is what i was familiar with. However, mine is like your Dad's in only four rows . Never thought I would see one in four rows much less fast hitch ! Thanks for the information. Between the rake FH and hoe FH I had to get them, The four row is so much easier to transport to shows and most of us 50's 60's guys started with four row 38"s Thanks ,Tony
  15. Basically I am , the rake is just a little TLC along with hoe ! Lol Carol says that counts as restorations in her mind also ! Lol she is probably right , along with you BJ ! they looked so small and easy and the devil made me do it ! Spending five days looking , smelling and touching Red lead me to the near occasion of Sin . Blaming Ohio ! Ha ha tony
  16. My poor wife is groaning and hanging on to the checkbook as I envision all that I want to do to them ! Tony
  17. Yep! remember them being pretty fancy in later years . Thanks for input Tony
  18. yes , my plan is to take less tractors to show but to include IH equipment of my early time period behind each I take . So my vision is SC with hay mower , then the 806 bean cutter , then the 300u with hay rake , then SMTA with baler . That rake worked behind the mower and the bean cutter when I was in high school and after and the baler baled the hay and the bean straw after harvester . Would like them all in line in a parade and all IH . I think the hoe will look good behind the 560 it was period correct tony
  19. We were all 38 inch rows . Some 40’s on west side but 38 was normal . most guys out here used till n pack to crust break but on some land left us vulernable to wind . I could not afford to have a dedicated hoe just for rain events so I used a till n pak that I already had . The wealthy farmers had the IH hoes . what’s that tell you I had to wait till sold the farm and retired and 76 to afford a four row cotton rotary hoe !! tony
  20. 7/22/22 Sometime back chit chatting with Randy Van Whye of Pine Island MN., I mentioned that I had been looking for a #12 IH fast hitch pto basket rake like I had raked beans and hay with in th 60-70’s , Looking for a number of years. lo and behold he not only found me a rake but also a IH fast hitch rotary hoe like we used to crust break seedling cotton after a rain . today they arrived delivered by Valley transport of Mn . few pictures of arrival tony
  21. Happy Belated Birthday Guys ! Hope you had a great day! Tony
