  1. Saw this old IH Scout with no top at the Harvest Festival in Union WV yesterday. My first car was a 1970 Scout 800A w/196 cu in 4 cylinder w/4 speed, so I had to snap a pic or two. Anything less is just a car...
  2. When I was looking for another tractor, one of the models I liked was the an 886 with a D360. I had some concerns with regards to power and wouldn’t know first hand until I would put it on my docs mower conditioner. However, in the back of my mind, I thought a turbo would be the fix would I have needed it. IMHO - an 886 with a turbo would be a nice tractor.
  3. We had a really good first cutting of hay. Second cut was pretty much non-existent. I've got one more field clipped, but don't expect much from it. The mighty 756 gasser was not used this year, it is doing fence row duty until I can get to it this winter... Hopefully my other color red and green equipment is not to offensive...

    I've ordered from billboardtarps.com with mixed success. These are used bill board tarps as the name implies. Sometimes they come-in very heavy and like new, other times they come in pretty wore and thinned out. They ask the advertisement turned to the inside, however, if it said Mail Pouch Tobacco, I'd turn it out...
  5. Thanks for the replies!
  6. Saw an IH 574 setting on the side of the road and on the radiator side panel was a blue decal with “68” on it. What does the 68 represent? Thanks!
  7. It’s to bad IH used this sentry module and couldn’t design around it - and maybe they couldn’t. Heck - look at how today’s tractors rely on electronics. Is it possible these sentry equipped IH tractors were the first “electronic” tractors - an indication of things to come?
  8. Looks great - thanks for sharing the pics!
  9. So what happens if/when you can't get a sentry module anymore? Park the tractor?
  10. Not my video, CaseIH 5140 open station baling some hay...
  11. Don’t slap me down, but what I’m reading in this post and your other replies is - don’t go there, don’t use roundup (even though you say you’re neutral). IMHO part of the transformation of this country is that for to long decent, hardworking, responsible people have, in their want not to be controversial and a want to be tolerant and accepting, have not drawn a line in the sand and if these same folks don’t begin to speak out and challenge, we/they are going to loose their country forever. I say hold your ground to using roundup. If the law suit comes, then you can consider fighting or settling at that point in time, but at least make them take the next step instead of preemptively surrendering.
  12. I would let the complainers know you have an open mind. What would they recommend? I’d ask - help me understand the risk of roundup. Help me understand why the EPA says it’s OK, as well as other studies. The findings are in conflict. Help me understand a clear answer. Facts - not emotion. Open mind, I’m listening. If there’s not a compelling, clear cut reason not to use roundup, then I’d use it.
  13. What’s not to like about a JD pan kicker. I can really load up a wagon with ours and with the arch of the throw, fill pretty high in the front too.
  14. All we make on our farm now is square bales of hay mainly for horses. We sell all of our hay. Started out with a New Holland 68, which we did a refurb on, including new maple plunger slides. Still have it, but moved up to a JD 348 w/pan kicker and kicker wagons. Coupled with our new barn, we can quickly get our hay baled, pulled into the barn out of any weather for unloading later. No more fire drills trying to get hay out of the weather...
