  1. Got hooked up and did a test run, getting ready to cut some Monday if we miss this weekend's rain
  2. Thanks everyone, heres one we did with a plane. https://www.facebook.com/1200242017/videos/1266489437497210/ And our first grandchild with an off color tractor
  3. We are soon to be grandparents of triplets and this is a video https://www.facebook.com/1375729662/videos/294143170019603/
  4. Did the hydraulic outlet conversion and changed a broken radio antennae on my 1586. This was my last tractor to get the conversion so no more adapters needed
  5. I found these on Amazon. They are sold for a deere 6000 series. They don't vibrate at all and are easy to install
  6. Daily cow feeding. It appears to be currently slot nicer down here
  7. I priced a 4450 at 32000 and bought a massey 3545 that had sat on the lot for 2 years for 22000 with duals. the 4450 price didnt include duals. The massey was a great tractor.
  8. he bought my 8070 to do his conversion . he converted 2 of my neighbors 8070s and made an excellent tractor out of them
  9. every tractor here in the late 70s and early 80s was over worked
  10. My 8070 ventilated the block at an early age. I was overworking it though
  11. working on my peanut planters today
  12. We brought the 986 into the shop last winter when I noticed some light rust on the roof and I know there aren't many 4 post roofs left. The fuel tank had collapsed and I had the dual tanks from my 1086 so I swapped it out. I found out I had to change the upper arms. The 986 was the first that I did the tilt steering swap
  13. starter solenoid failed on my 4840
  14. Cleaned all the cotton debris off the 1586, blew out the radiator, air filter and evap core. Fixed a non working radio speaker and got a couple non working lights fixed
  15. Fixed a bad fan switch and the right speaker had a wire pulled loose. Heater valve was froze up so I just removed the core. I don't remember the last time I used a heater in a tractor
  16. Mine gets used quite a bit. The cab and controls are not that bad and exiting out the right side is no more difficult than a soundguard cab. Tilt steering and the door kit helps. The ride is not bad with radial tires
