  2. 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.

  4. 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.

    The fast hitch hoes around here were the older series, before the 300’s came out. They were suspended from the frame. Like this one…

    The owners manual is like the one dad had

     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

    Tony, I thought you said at RPRU you were done with restorations. :D

    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

    Very nice condition . Have a complete custom hay business soon..... 

    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

    Wow Tony!! To be honest l have never seen a IH rotary hoe before, only JD's and a couple of Bingham Bros. How many rows wide is it? l don't think l've ever asked you, but what was your row width when you raised cotton? Back in the 60's and 70's here in west Texas, it  was mostly 40 inch rows. But l think now it is 30 inch rows.

    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 !!

    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 .

    she is home done ! 30 months lot of patience and ups and downs , not to mention the checks $$$
    Now I have my two IH’s one is restored to compete with Ford , Chevy , at car shows 

    and honor my Dad and the first vehicle that I drove to school .

    this one is restored to honor a man that helped me early in life and as a utility IH to show with ATHIS and tractor shows.

    pictures of arrival !

    the man in picture is my Nieghbor and life long friend Eddie He knows the very first chapter of this truck before I started following it . He remembers when it arrived in 1966 on propane and a pickup bed on it . I came in after Herb had removed the bed and started the flat bed in 1967 

    the rear lic frame was the original we had it rechromed but it’s the Allied original frame . Beside tractors they sold many IH trucks .
