  1. Yep! remember them being pretty fancy in later years . Thanks for input Tony
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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

  8. 7/14/22 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 . tony

  11. Todd , I have one just like it , bought it in 2014 used on the Almond ranch pretty much like a P.U. or tractor. I still have it and use it everyday on my retirement ranch of 20 acres almonds . They are indestructible , we change oil and air filter and its never let us done and never been to shop. changed battery twice and we have ruined few rear tires running over rough stuff and that it. Dont be afraid of it. Tony
