    TF19 ?

    I think it was a 4 cylinder,
  3. I think we have seen the end of it for even more modern 66s and 86s. Still good usable outfits but online they sit for sale for months and years at prices that were moderate just a few years ago. Bought a nice 1680 probably 5 to 7 years ago for 5000 with a bad motor. Now with a good motor there 3500 around here. Always felt I had 70 grand in equipment, now probably wouldn’t bring 20
  4. Once again on this topic. Whose electric bill went down after the windmills came in.? I no we have seen a 3 and a half cent increase a kw. Once they are built very few jobs! Most work done by Travling contractors. Electric companies put them in because they can make more money, also scared of when the democrats get back in. I guess the guy that has them on his property gets a check, not sure it out weighs the hundreds of good jobs plants provide. I believe it’s the democrats way of making the buffalo commons plan happen. Always remember liars figure

    Any buy a tractor

    Hope it’s good, haven’t had anything from there since it’s been a creamery. Thought maybe that outfit was headed to your place Dale.
  9. Had to pick up some meat at Drake ND today, between Harvey and Anamoose I met what looked to be a super nice 1256 or similar standard tractor with duals and a ice cream box cab. It had a JD 148 or 158 loader on it. Should of turned around and chased it down and got a picture, it looked super nice. Just don’t meet rigs like that everyday
  10. Didn’t read it well. Was just thinking there was a old fellow from Barnsville Mn that was a tractor guy. Thought his name was John Thompson? Common name I suppose. I also could be wrong,

    Rowse Dumprakes

    mine was 42ft I think, used it to rake up flax straw. Think I paid $250 and then sold it later for $150. It was shot when I got it but worked for what I needed it for

    Clean energy?

    If it’s free energy why do your rates go up. The electric company can make 13 percent profits in my state. They plan to invest a hundred million dollars the next 5 to 7 years. Do the math. If farmers had to take care of the environment the way coal plants do Pretty much none of us would farm. That is what the democrats want from us though, We really are all in the same boat. Who doesn’t want a better environment but people who farm usually understand common sense to

    Clean energy?

    Searcy u no coal is pretty bad? Where do u get your information? Coal is very clean anymore. Thats steam coming out of those stacks not smoke. Also provides hundreds of good jobs. They were making windmill blading up in grand forks Nd. Now all the trucks come from the west. China! That’s who makes most of the blades now. A friend went to a meeting where they were wanting to put windmills on his land. They don’t give u a lot of facts. One fellow was really pushing, my friend didn’t recognize him. So where do u live he says, well just up the road, let me rephrase that we’re do u hang your hat? Turns out he live 120 miles away and just owned some land locally. Just like the people back east. Not in my back yard!! There is a reason the electrical companies want them, more money in there pockets way of government and raised rates
  14. Looks like a good start to a nice tractor
  15. All in fun, they all could keep u warm, in my old age I’d take the IH quilt
  16. How did u convert that 962 head to a bottom drive. I used a PTO shaft on that 960 nh head and haven’t been real happy with it

    Odd fenders

    Tractor showed up online, nice rig but fenders must be custom built
  18. Saw this online, never saw one, not sure if it’s a loner or if there were several. Owner calls it a 6 cylinder funk conversion
  19. Saw a guy with a 856 use a dual loader block with pioneer couplers turned in it. Then ran the cable controls up in the cab. Actually seemed like it would work pretty good. Always thought the 86 series levers looked unhandy but in use they work suppriseingly good
  20. Is that a old moline? Or the Wilson dirt boyz is talking about? A better picture is in order please
