    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
  5. 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.
  6. The only moldboard I have is a 2-12
  7. 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
  8. Thanks everyone. It's supposed to rain for the next few days so hopefully I'll get it mounted up
  9. I'm going to look at a westendorf Loader, it was on a 1486. Would the brackets be the same or similar to fit on a 966?

    IH 4386 Wheels

    I don't know how far from southern Indiana you are but a guy on Evansville Craigslist advertises having wheels. I bought some steel pressed wheels and some rice tires from him. Fairly reasonable on the wheels, the tires weren't the greatest but worked in a pinch

    Just my luck

    That's my plan, it just aggravates me, but I guess that's the joy of buying older equipment.

    The way I found this other one was I called about parts and the lady at the parts counter said they had a head that would be cheaper to buy that had the parts I needed than buying the new parts alone.

    I bought a combine this spring with a wide row head but have been looking for a narrow row head since. I finally found one that I thought was decent price that needed work but was operational only to find one a week later that was half the cost and twice the condition...oh well life goes on.
  14. I had a 2404 once but it didn't have a 3pt hitch, besides that the thing I didn't like was that it only had one range so there was never a good gear for the job.
  15. At our local pull they have the hot antiques on Thursday night and Saturday morning they have an exhibitor pull where the tractors on display can get out there and see what they got. The exhibitor pull rules are stock appearing stock drawbar, a muffler and can only pull in first gear.
