    Red Tractors are my favorite for sure, but also like the heritage iron vintage of other colors as well!!!

  1. Hi Kevin, Have you tried contacting Mori Sales? I believe they are still in business. Morris (Mori) Hersberger passed away earlier this year I think I remember reading. I live about 85 miles north of Lapel. In summer of 2000, I bought a wheat land 560 diesel off of Mori. He had tractors in several areas of the little town of Lapel. Maybe they have some old records there at the business yet? Great looking 600!!.... ......John
  2. Hello All, I’ve been eyeing up this little CO 1800 for a while now. Says it runs, drives, and bed goes up, it just has no brakes. And while sitting out for sale, the driver door swung open and came backed and cracked the windshield. I’ve spoken to seller on phone a while back but wasn’t too serious then, but I keep thinking it over. 345, with 2 speed rear, Hyd brakes. There is no resistance on pedal at all for brakes so I would have to just start dumping fluid in and see where that goes. Are you guys finding that brake parts are all too hard to find and expensive?? What are chances of getting a good windshield for it somewhere too? Thanks for your thoughts on this as I’m trying to think this thru. For this project I would get truck useable and take maybe a H, BN, MD or something to local shows etc on bed. Here is a picture of it.
  3. I’ve heard they are real touchy with wind...sometimes doesn’t have to be blowing much at all I guess. I’ve been really looking into them as I want one...either Traeger or Camp Chef, but haven’t pulled the trigger. I’d like to know how you like yours Pete and how much you’ve used it so far and if you have a blanket to use in the cold temps.
  4. Very Nice Videos!! Thanks for posting them. Mr Legonut, what kind of drone are you using??? Does a nice job for sure.
  5. Since I always like to see pictures on here, I’ll put on a couple of my 1568, around 3,600 hours. I’ve owned it for coming on 17 years now. Only major things I’ve done to it was put a cab kit in and switched it to 134a A/C with rotary compressor. It still has the original cab material around all the gauges and I left that in there. I need to pull the injectors sometime and get them cleaned and checked. I’m like Red Tractor Fever and $20,000 won’t touch it!! It’s on the registry with Tom. I just got the 720 plow this fall, it was 5-18’s and I took a bottom off as I want to use it with my 856. So here it is with the V8 as 4-18’s. Just the right amount of frost to make a few rounds plowing, would have put some weights and the dual on the rear if I plowed longer. I have a couple videos plowing if I can figure how to put those on here sometime or send them to one of you guys that post videos often.

    Pic test

    I want to test putting a pic on here too!
  7. Nice pics and videos Mr Long!! As always thank you for sharing!
  8. Wrangler, I got some parts for my 660 probably 6 or 8 years ago from Smiths Tractor Wrecking in Allan, Saskatchewan if I remember right. Good people and shipped the parts to the states for me. John
  9. Sure looks like someone put in a D301 out of a 715 combine with its electric shut off pump and spin on oil filter....if so that would be nice!
  10. Hey Matt, thank you for the info! I'm looking at buying this plow, any thoughts of a fair price to pay for this?? It's got a new tail wheel, no cylinder, 1 thin molboard, not seized up anywhere. Northern Indiana for location.
  11. Hello All, By these pictures, can any of you tell if this is a model 60 or 70 plow?? Also what are the differences between a 60 and 70 that I can look for when I go look at it in person. Thank you!
  12. Hello All, Working on Reinstalling cleaned injectors back into D301. On installing the precombustion chambers, they are stamped up and when installing them with the "up" up at 12 o'clock position the hole isn't directly below at the 6 o'clock spot. Do they get installed this way or does the hole need to be directly at bottom in 6 o'clock spot, then that puts the word "up" at about 1 o'clock, which is still up I know. Please advise and thank you!
