    Saw this pulling into Home Depot

    Very true. My Cabover experience was on a neighbor's 70's era GMC Astro with a 20ft grain box on it. It was designed to pull a trailer behind that but It wasn't in use when i drove it. Tandem axle with another lift axle on it. 12V71 2 stroke Detroit under the floor. Man that was loud in that cab. You drove it like you hoped it would throw a rod out the side of the block. As far as I know it's still sitting in the grass at the Mosherville farm where it was parked 8 or 9 years ago. Haven't driven by it this year to see if it's still there though I'm almost positive it's still is. Yeah, no love for cabovers. Spend a week climbing in and out of them during harvest. God knows how many times a day. That gets old in a hurry when at the end of the day you feel like you mountain climbed all day.

    X2. High to climb into. And as they say, you're first to the scene of a accident.

    1086 vs 986

    I think the poster of this post if i remember correctly is a hay operation. I seem to remember him talking about his gas 756.

    What not to use on a two year old Chevy pickup

    Its interesting that it seems certain vehicles fare better in certain areas than others. And there is no set one. Around here Ford and Chevy last really well rust wise. They are neck and neck longevity wise. But like i said anything Chrysler/Dodge rusts bad around here. I should take some pictures of what few they're around here. They're bad.

    Around here that applies to anything Chrysler/Dodge related. Some of the trucks I've seen you need a tetanus shot looking at them.

    1086 vs 986

    There's nothing wrong with a 986. We used to have one and it got worked hard. It held up good. It's all on a case by case basis on which tractor is better. You can come across clapped out 1086s and clean 986s and vice versa.

    IH 856 TERP

    Sad, to say but some of these tractors must die so others may live. Most of the clapped out ones are so shot that the parts are damn near as bad as the ones you wore out or broke. You need better ones to part out.

    Who else procrastinates on getting combine ready

    That's our same problem. Doesn't fit in the shop and the machine shed is dirt floor and unheated

    Somethings wrong with this 5288 see if you can find it

    Looks to me to be some type of monitor mount over the top of the dash.

    3230 PTO rebuild

    What type of pressures is this supposed to run?

    Chopping corn in the mud

    We got our one silo full Saturday afternoon. The fields weren't damp but weren't too bad. Where the mud was bad was in one area of the lane coming up to the buildings. One spot water will sit in it if you have a lot of rain which we have had. That was muddier than ****. We can only use certain tractors to pull up to the blower because some have too long of axles to get by the blower tractor. The 786 ended up pulling wagons back and forth to the field and I switched with my brother on the 460 in the yard for him to run the load up. The 3230 PTO quit on us taking that FWA option out. We let the silo settle til this morning and ran another wagon and 3/4 up. Will let it settle til tomorrow and run another 2 wagons up and call it good. The neighbor's corn where he wants to build his cursed pile is way too green for that even (late planting because of rain) With a dry stretch and warm weather this week we're hoping to finish up 3rd cutting hay.

    IH 830 Silage Chopper Opinions?

    Parts availability can't be worse than parts availability for Fox choppers.

    3230 PTO rebuild

    How hard is it to rebuild a PTO in a 3230? Yesterday we filled our silo. We were going to use the 786 and 3230 to haul silage wagons. Brother started running a load up the silo and with the load on it the PTO started slipping so bad he couldn't unload with it. Ended up pulling it to the side and ran a relay system. 786 went to the field with the wagons and switched, Pulled them up the muddy mess of our lane. Dropped the wagon in the yard where the 460 pulled them up to the blower and unloaded them. All our other tractors were either on the blower or had too long of axles to work in this application. The PTO isn't set up like any of our other tractors so I'm wondering what type of a chore it is to tear one out and repair and reinstall it.
