  1. Should really have large and small wire concaves unless you will only ever do corn and beans. I have ran the 2 3 thousand dollar IH combines and it is surprising how dependable they are. If money is no object go for the 1666. If your on a shoe string budget that 1660 will serve you well. I was told by the auctioneer when I bought my first 1460 for $2000 that you no this is a salvage combine! It ran trouble free for many years.
  2. Where things go to die. Thought you talking about my place. I’d try to get it bought. We won’t find many like this anymore. Run it as is. Put a 7.3 or 3208 in it and keep your eyes peeled for a 550. My luck is talk to him today and next week it’s on a trailer going by my place for less money!
  3. Just guessing the inside isn’t done . 180 seems reasonable nowadays. Very nice job
  4. Randall talks about how it was much warmer in the the past and that co was 3 times hire than it is now. He has lots of good stuff if your into it

    6601

    Finished a little 20 acre field. I Hadn’t used the 6601 in 4 years. It went good and handled those 20ft swaths better than I thought it would.
  6. That is pretty neat. Not crazy about the newer setups just for shows. This looks like a working outfit from the day. Real farmer ingenuity. Saw a similar outfit in the 80s not being used anymore. R JD and and some type of Oliver. Had double hitch plows . Several cables and some type of old starter generator motors. Wish I had pictures.
  7. Ever new they made a 9501. Pretty neat combine
  8. Never know what completely to believe. Different sources tell us the pollution to create some of these EV's will never outweigh their savings. What I can honestly say again is the plant I used to work at had roughly 50 people with $100,000 a year jobs plus the mine and railway that produced the coal. This cost the consumer roughly .08 cents a kw. with prices across the board at $15 to $40 a megawatt. I think now we pay 12 cents a kw. With prices all summer $60 to $120 a megawatt. We will pay more as soon as the public service raises the price again. Supposedly we had production jobs building windmills in Grand Forks ND and Aberdeen SD. Those places closed down because of China. Only a fraction of the people required to babysit the windmills, Yet prices are double or even triple now. I don't have all the answers, but I do realize we are being screwed over.
  9. Yes like that one to . Probably better to look at then drive. But will definitely get the job done
  10. I was watching this auction. The truck went for 8000 or 8500. I really liked the truck , thought this tractor was reasonable
  11. Yes tongue swings 90 and u go down the road ?
  12. I got it from a guy years ago who used it to cut CRP for hay. He claimed it cut hay good. I think it would but I can tell you the head is expensive to work on. I bought it for $500 but stuck roughly 12 , 1400 $ in the head. Probably about 2012? not exactly sure thou ?
  13. I suppose big John could crank start it , don’t think I’d try thou 🙄🙄
