  1. Got a couple more ponies than my 686 ๐Ÿ˜Š. Looks and sounds pretty healthy. I like the larger front rubber on there for what you are doing. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
  2. Here is an example of an International or standard tread tractor. Some would possibly call it a wheatland also due to being more popular in the west and northern wheat growing areas of North America. This particular one is a 1256 but the same style would apply to the 856
  3. Sounds like a cool project. You can add pics straight from a mobile device by clicking on the โ€œadd filesโ€ button below and selecting them from your pictures. Videos just about have to be linked to U-Toob or something similar to post on here. Not meant to be snide or insult your intelligence, just an FYI if you want to add them and have that capability. ๐Ÿ˜Š
  4. My 686 with the 312 has the factory oval muffler on it. Tall with about a 6โ€ extension to get exhaust up over the canopy. Didnโ€™t buy it new but the muffler is the original one anyhow. Not a specific pic of muffler but shows in this picture for reference. Last one I ordered from him was a Stanley. Only reason I ordered from him was to get a good muffler and not a Stanley. Be sure and ask first. Good guy to deal with for sure and knows his product.
  5. Good to see. Nice pics in the stubble. Looking forward to some shots of the fall field work. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
  6. It clawed and scratched along nicely. Thanks for the video!
  7. Old Herbie is really starting to shine. Really like this one a lot. Nothing like it out there Tony. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
  8. I was taking with @Axial Flow and he sent me some pictures and asked me add them. He was hoping to see what people know about the serial number differences shown in the pics. Why are some the โ€œold styleโ€ and others the โ€œnew styleโ€. The first pic is a later serial number 856 hi-crop followed by itโ€™s tag. The second set is an 856 LP followed by its tag. He will probably be along to comment further. Was there a timeframe as to the swap in serial number styles? Did the letters other than the serial number have meaning like the earlier letter series tractors?
  9. That certainly is interesting. A family machine kept in good shape is special no mater what the serial number is. Good for you as it looks like it has been taken care of nicely.
  10. Please stop. You are not helping anything. Once again, ^^^^ the above statement is part of the problem not part of the solution. If I am taking it all wrong I apologize, but there is no way I completely misread 95% of your posts as negative. Piping off to or about the admins/owners does ZERO good. What are you trying to prove? And who are you trying to prove it to?
  11. Dang, you have been busy. Even an 86. Thats newer than your usual ๐Ÿ˜Š One good spot or several?
  12. Got one cleaned up so far. Masked off the original part number. Couldnโ€™t let myself paint over it.

    Nice pic. A 350 was the only tractor my Great Grandfather ever bought new.
  14. The first one looks like a two way plow for something like a cub. Not positive but looks pretty similar. Donโ€™t know on the second one.
