  1. Thanks everyone for the replies and pics - most appreciated!
  2. What is the typical IH loader model number installed on an 86 series tractor, ie 886, 986, 1086? Are these suitable for lifting around 4x5 round bales or sacks of fertilizer? What is the typical lift capacity, height and bucket width? How do the front ends hold up on the 86 series with a loader? I assume the loader is plumbed-into the rear remotes? Can you rig up a 3rd function? Would these loaders be quick attach and if so, are they easy enough to remove and reattach? How are the 86 series tractors as loader tractors, good or bad? Any sage info is much appreciated!
  3. Thanks for the info - much appreciated!!!!!
  4. Did the D360 used in the IH 766 and 886 tractors suffer cavitation erosion in the sleeves like the 414 engines in the 66 series tractors? I especially see 766 tractors without the additional coolant filter/conditioner in for sale ads. Were these D360 engines less prone to sleeve erosion from the coolant? Just curious. Thanks!
  5. How do these two tractors compare? IH 444 (Louisville built 1968-1971) and a Massey Ferguson 135 of the same era? Both diesel tractors. Any sage advice is much appreciated. Thanks!
  6. I still lurk here... Special thanks to CIHTECH !!! Baling some hay...
  7. Here is a fun video we put together for folks with small fields who want to have a try at making hay on a budget with older equipment. Scattered in this video is the 756 gasser and in one frame where you don't see it - you know it's there from the smoke... LOL! Enjoy!
  8. January 12th Temperature in the 60’s, sunny and clear...?
  9. Our hay is cash only - receipt provided. No holding, no pay me later. First come, first served. We also have a net 45 on payment. You got 45 seconds after the hay is loaded to pay or it gets unloaded. Had a guy offer to pay via an e-check. I asked him how I would hold an e-check until payday? He paid cash.
  10. In addition to the Krone I mentioned earlier, we have a New Holland 256 rake, New Holland 156 tedder and a John Deere 348 square baler with a pan kicker. I’ll try to attach videos of those - but you can go to JHJ-Farm on you tube and find all of our videos, including other hay equipment we use. 80 acres is a lot of hay, especially for square bales and older equipment. What is your market? Good luck!
  11. We also have a Krone mower conditioner, 2801cv impeller machine. I’ve had mine on two wheels too... Here a video of it working... The Krone is an awesome mower conditioner.
  12. What kind of weight is being placed on these draw bars with the grain carts?
  13. Forgive me if this link has previously been posted. If not, I’m hoping you folks are watching this guy and his 856 project. IMHO - incredible.
  14. 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...
