  1. What would be a decent round baler in a 4x5 size for 5k or less! Dad had a claas 46 good baler 20000 bales 0 problems but it was a soft core and he bought a new claas 4x5 belt baler good baler! I havent ran it yet or even really did anything to it. Its his! Out of my price range anyhow! Really the 46 was all i was every around and operated! Id prefer net wrap and a belt baler for a hard core!

    Thanks for your help. If I’m understanding you correctly, IH made 966 Hydro and  1066 Hydro in 1973. I did not know that. Thanks for the info.

    here is a pic of the tractor. I’m going to try to fix her. Big project, but I like the tractor.



    Id give it try and see if she goes get the engine to run jack it all up and see if she spins the wheels before anything else!

    I have mowed with the 15' hesston disk mower on the 1066 hydro. I was in high range. The problem I had was I need a set of 10 bolt hubs and duals to keep from being pushed all around on the corners . 

    Hydro=perfect haying tractor and for loader work. Nice on a pull type chopper to some extent. 1066 was the only one that had a turbo from the factory. Turbo adds better response as the engine holds RPM better and used slightly less fuel . 

    Herrs machine in Kansas is the expert on these Hydros

    Thiers a 1066 hydro over in morris if youd like another! Haha Was down through thier a few weeks back!

    Big Thanks to Jeff Foreman for finding me the CAT 3 cross drawbar. I had it powder coated off white and he gave me the NOS INTERNATIONAL decal. Have only seen 2 in person before. Even my IH accessories need accessories.




    We have a cross bar just looks like thickness! Wise grandpa had it do they have ih part number maybe i oghta clean it up! Figure they were all off brands!

    Black stripes are dependent on the serial number not any of the other things you mentioned. Look at the parts book and it will tell you at such and such serial number the decal is black stripe and not the earlier model

    Yes it comes down to serial number but all those things point away from being a true blackstripe!

    Is that a true black stripe? Whats the serial#

    I doubt it has the wrong side sheet metal has the louvers serial number tag on the bell housing and dont see the bolt holes in tge rear axle housing for the 86 series cabs! And that tractor had a cab on at one time wrong deck pto lever and steps and the oil cooler hoses dont go through the sheet metal the steel lines come half way up from the multiple control valves! Nice tractor not original though! Wish thier was a rearend pick cause it probably has wrong drawbar and 3 pt hitch to be a blackstripe!

    Thanks We don't have modern tractors on the farm, can't justify it financially. Son and I do the old ones the way we want them done

    Im up for adoption???? Sharp 986 the one neighbor bought one off are other neighbor about 25 years ago exact same set up had 800 hours on it when it changed hands dad wanted to buy it at the time no money in the 80s! I tried to buy it cause we farm the original owners land and i wanted one of his tractors but the current owner wants to much told me he was gonna get it running then i will see its worth that much! It now has about 2000 hours on it! Now its rotting away out side hasnt moved in 5 years! I been waiting to get the call he worked on it but havent yet! Thinking about stopping to see if hes money hungry make a nice winter project! 

  8. Your putting to much thought into this! If your 756 is doin it now! A 966 is gonna do better! Thier good tractors as long as they been maintained like anything! If you do buy a 10 that cat 3 doesnt mean nothin! If your just baling hay! Not like your paying more for the tractor that is that old if it had a 2 or 3! A 9 will be cheaper than a 10 everybody wants a 10! That why i have two 9s and one 10! Would like to buy another 9 if in can scrap up the money!

  9. Looks good! My old boss had a stieger i thought the way the duels clamped were dumb way to go on but he didnt use much off set disc and a big old spreader that was hydraulic spreader that sat real high didnt haul as much as the knights he had so he didnt use it much when i worked for him!

    I bought a 1066 in parts last year that I'm slowly getting back together, but it will be a while before it' done. It a wet bolster serial #043566 Madison WI area.

    I want one with a narrow front someday! Are you putting a narrow front under it? Or does it already have one!

    The way i see it, theres little time left to find good tractors

    Thats the way i see it to! The clean originals are getting fewer fewer! To bad my wife doesnt get that! Haha! Looking good i kinda like your way of just fixing and cleaning them up good! Paint can always come later!
