    That model display case celebrating 30 years of service with the two appropriately aged tractors and Old Abe in middle is seriously cool! A brilliant physical representation that anyone (not just a farmer or tractor mechanic) can see and grasp the technological design advancement over that period.

    I like. I don't think we had these here in Oz. We had Scouts but not these. They are growing on me I've got to say.

    I like that C Line. My grandfather had a C1510 in the same colour scheme. Now I have one on my wishlist.

    Yep, nothing practical, just a lap around the paddock. But very rewarding. My kids are now getting what a little taste of what I had as a kid.

    So last weekend, the kids all got their first tractor ride: They were stoked with that and absolutely loved it.

    Thanks FarmallFan. Now is that because i wasn't looking hard enough, or were you able to use Moderator Superpowers to bring this back from hibernation/archive/death?

    I've just realised that the oldest post i can see in 'see my activity' is from December 2015. I joined in August 2015 when i picked up the 856. Is it possible that the forum only holds info for 3 years, then it disappears? And if so, is this deleted or archived?

    Lost Thread

    I seem to have lost a thread that I started way back when I joined this group. It was back in late 2015, when i first picked up my 856. I can't remember the title of the thread, but it told the story of how I came take possession of my 856 Farmall. Now i can't seem to find it at all. Looking in my profile under 'See my activity' i can find individual posts going all the way back to Aug 2015 (when I first joined), but none of them are to the multipage thread. I've also tried some searches but they are either hitting dead-ends or resulting in errors. Any ideas on how I might be able to track this down?

    I'm also voting for the splash of white to finish her off. Looks great!

    Mark, 'Bore' refers to drilling for water. The drilling is a process called boring, not sure what it may be referred to in the states. Similar to tunnel boring. Anyway, over here we are lucky enough to have decent aquifers underground that are able to supply decent quality water in the way an old well would, but much smaller diameter and much deeper. Our bore is 200mm (8in) diameter and 66mm (200ft) deep. it is lined with a slotted 150mm dia PVC pipe. Into this is typically dropped a submersible electrical pump. We currently run a 'jet pump' which works on venturi action. We pump down water in a 1in line and it has a sharp turn at the base with a venturi tube to feed water from the borehole. It returns via a 1.25in line. It's slow and inefficient but it's what we've got until we save some money for a solar/electric pump setup. 'Water reticulation' simply refers to the circulation system for the water once we get it out of the bore. It's all just going to be poly pipes trenched into the ground. But i also want to place another tank part way up the hill. The bore pump will pump water to the tank and then it will gravity feed back towards the house. The idea is to have plenty of taps so we can water our trees. We've planted 30 so far and it has hardly made an impact! Lots more to plant yet!
  13. Brochure states "the finest in tractor enclosures". I get a mental image of a zoo-like enclosure in an urban environment where tractors are free to roam artificial paddocks for the viewing pleasure of city inhabitants.
  14. I guess it's very practical to make your interior colour the same as the dust that inevitably end up in there! 🤣
  15. Anyone got any pics of these various interior options?
