  1. Funny how different soils are ? In Nebraska we pulled a ripper barely wider than the tractor , JD 4960. While at home I ran a 4640 with a 29ft chisel. The tractor never had enough traction. I pull a 22 ft IH 490 disk easily with the 1586 but could barely scratch the surface with a 12 ft Wishek. My 3588 pulled 27.5 vibra chisel but was underpowered on a 32ft IH 5500. Had to move up to a 850 versatile. Honestly we never worked the ground very deep as was always taught to have a firm seedbed .
  2. First tractor I farmed with was a 3588. I pulled a 27.5 ft chisel, 914 combine . 20 ft of drills . Loved how it went through washouts with the big front tires. Damn good tractor. Lot more to go wrong than a traditional tractor and advances in MFW made them less desirable. I farm a lot less but still miss it occasionally.

    About 3200 hrs. Pretty decent money I thought
  4. Will it last 60 acres , thought the motor was galloping some ?!
  5. First pump is extra one , second one is on the combine . Took a small bolt with epoxy on it and turned it in a ways. So far so good ??
  6. 1680 started leaking oil around the pump , looked and tightened things but didn’t help. I think there’s a poured plug that might have come out . Anyone else ever have that problem I’m goons try and clean it up and put some kinda epoxy in there ?
  7. Working on a 282 706 I got a while back. I no it ran when parked several years ago but now diesel runs out from the bottom of the pump. I assume I need to take the pump off and get it worked on.
  8. It was a SD auction I saw online . Looks like they mowed with at least 1
  9. Different rig same auction
  10. I wonder how long and how much theses units were run
  11. Seems like more variation of these than most. That’s quite a grapple on Sandhillers tractor. Never saw one like that before
  12. Those AC wrenches are cool
  13. Each his own but I would keep the cab . Reminds me of a cab off a white from the back
  14. Happens fast , glad you’re okay . Lucky a lot of those Nebraska backroads the ditches are higher than the road 😉
  15. I think I would go with a pto pump. Usually a lot faster
  16. Nice 915s, Truck had the 404, didn’t buy anything
  17. Any idea what kind of airplane this is .

    Old elevator

    The Dakota Maid is in Flasher and the House looking one is in Carson ND. Not sure if the IH on the building is the old IH dealership in Carson. Paint looks pretty fresh

  20. Sounds like quite the kid . Happy for you
  21. Yes 10 grand for a 5020 isn’t cheap. $3500 used to be high . I think most all that stuff sold decent
