  1. Will a 5088 3 point fit on a 5288 ? Or is it not as heavy duty
  2. Think this could be a 504 ? Only have pictures to go by
  3. Nice project. I think I would cap them with a piece between and build off that.
  4. All nice, but really like that first truck
  5. A guy shouldn’t have to put gauges on under the floor boards for testing, I think there should be gauges on the dash for constant monitoring.

    Good way to honor her , I think turkey isn’t as good as chicken cooked the same way
  7. I think the combine will clean up all right. I’ve always worried myself about things like this happening. Seems like the breaks never work in 14 and 16 series. Probably wouldn’t Of helped in this case. . Most important is your brother will be okay . Sucks what he’s going through but could of been much worse.
  8. My biggest implement is 20ft , probably wouldn’t enjoy running it all day , but I find it cool. And affordable
  9. This would of been a fun parade tractor. $2800 seems pretty decent.
  10. Saw this online in MT . Seemed pretty reasonable to me
  11. Ih used to make damn near everything
  12. Nice pictures. Looks like it was a beautiful day. Is the truck IH red ? Almost looks to be a bit deeper red ?
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. Just guessing the inside isn’t done . 180 seems reasonable nowadays. Very nice job

    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.
  17. 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.
  18. Yes like that one to . Probably better to look at then drive. But will definitely get the job done
  19. I was watching this auction. The truck went for 8000 or 8500. I really liked the truck , thought this tractor was reasonable
  20. Yes tongue swings 90 and u go down the road ?
