  1. Good luck, I have a couple model M's. Some parts will cross over from the model 10 I believe, but I'm not sure what all parts will work.
  2. My friend gave me this picture printed on a metal plate thing to hang on the wall. I'm redoing the living room to match. There were probably other good pictures taken that day but none come to mind. Haha There use to be a one row that sat back in one of the barns that I always wanted to get out and use, but I can see why my grandpa didn't bother with it after he got this one.
  3. My grandpa was one of the few people around home that picked and sold ear corn. After he died no one wanted to pick corn or do field corn for that matter, they switched to popcorn. So I figured I'd start picking. It's my grandpa's 3 row new idea picker, it'll flat eat some corn too, as long as you have a good supply if wagons on hand.
  4. Last fall a friend of mine came up and took maternity pictures when my wife was still pregnant with our second son. I hopped off the tractor long enough to take a few with her then got back to it. He took this picture while we were finishing up picking corn. I thought it was a really good picture so I thought I'd share it with you all.
  5. Thanks for the help
  6. I search on this site but could find what I was looking for again. I had read somewhere on here where some one had took the electric cable for the markers and replaced it with another valve and made it it's own system. Does anyone know what type of valve I'd need to do this? I'm not great with names of valves, but all my google searches hasn't come up with anything that looks like what I'm looking for.

    Cover crop

    Thanks for all the advice and experience. I'll probably look into oats next year, along with some other options. Until about a week ago I'd never heard of hairy vetch, what is it?

    Cover crop

    The only reason I'm using it this year is because I bought it for next to nothing just to do some test ground. I plan on changing up what I'm using based on what will be in the field following it. I just wanted to be able to mess around with it and not spend much money. I'll be working the field next to that neighbor next year and working in a granular pre emergent. I'm may try interseeding in part of the field too just to see how it goes.

    Cover crop

    I won't be harvesting the wheat, if anything we may bale it in the spring. The ground I'm trying it on will be put in soybeans next spring. I thought maybe I'd try hitting it with the disk to get it covered a little bit. Is there any other way to really kill it in the spring besides spraying it?

    Cover crop

    I need an education from people that have real world experience. This year I had a neighbor claim his grapes got 24D burns from me, even though no 24D was sprayed on my ground. Also the ragweeds are running rampant through my field due to lack of options on herbicides. I'm planning on doing some cover crops this year on a field away from that neighbor so I can play around with it some. I will be using wheat since I bought a super sack from another neighbor real cheap just to try. I was wondering A) Can I broadcast the seed and get a decent stand? Should I plant in it next spring before or after I kill it? C) Does crimping work? D) Will this help keep weeds under control? I understand that every field is different, I'm just wanting some real world insight on the topic. I'm finding it hard to get information on cover crops and weed control, which is what I'm after. Thanks
  11. I appreciate the help guys. The neighbor has one he pulled with a 6400 John Deere. He said I could use it, so I'd imagine the 966 should be able to pull that and if not I'll get the 14 out.
  12. The only moldboard I have is a 2-12
  13. Sorry in advance if it's been covered already. I'm going to have to start working a field next year due to being limited on what chemicals I can use on a field. So I was going to chisel plow it and then disk it. I have a 1466 and a 966, what sized chisel plow would be suited to them? It's fairly decent ground, not black dirt but not clay. Thanks
  14. My uncle's just got done repainting a A-C 440 which is a steiger painted orange. It took up the a lot of room when they tore it down and had to borrow a bucket truck from a phone or power company to get the cab off.
  15. I had 2 tick bites in a year that got the ring around it. Spent a lot of the me on antibiotics but I had gotten to the doctor early enough to get it took care of. There's a few people around home that didn't get it checked out and I heard it liked to kill them
