  1. Matching rear tires I like to see . Looks like a great one to start with
  2. Get 4 have-a-heart traps and live trap four skunks and put one at all four corners of the trailer, problem solved ..... Sorry I don't have any ideas besides would tarping it completely help ?
  3. No, end hood folds up the side of the Heston and front hoods fold up like the NH does . NH has solid sides. I prefer the NH shielding and the Heston drivetrain and cutterbar
  4. Fold up end guards for the hesston cutterhead. I actually liked those 15' Hestons we had a lot. Our main problems were they were well used and the conditioner bearings were an issue because the rolls were out of balance from too many rocks through it. The assist roller was the worst for beat up
  5. I'm confident that it is Heston lineage. We had a 8315 and a dc515 and they were both Heston. Picture of the back would confirm my thoughts
  6. Hesston ? If so they have a cast housing bearings available that last much better

    6080 allis ?

    We bought a new one in 1981 . Got rid of it finally around 92 . I'd take a 706 or 656 gas over the 6080 . Back then we planted with it and a 4 row 385? Deutz Allis planter we got new at the same time or close to. By the late 80's it was common for it to have transmission trouble before the corn was planted. It was a pain to be without because we had a 150 or 200 gallon tank on the front to spray while planting. We didn't have any other sprayer at the moment
  8. A super C has a lifted fuel tank, hood and taller grill . Maybe that holds true for the super A also ?
  9. Did you look under the seat on the left seat support? Engine if it has C123 on it indicates that it's more likely a super A
  10. Little progress again. Was hard to see where you were and where you need to be . Been getting a shower almost everyday
