  4. Have to agree with searcy, grabbed it to pound a stake for the wife and missed right away. Cussed and looked at the hammer 🔨 and wondered what the heck is this for
  5. What’s the purpose of this kind of hammer 🔨 hard to beat on anything with tapers ends

    RIP Bax

    Always enjoyed him. Saw him live a couple of times. I have his first book . I think it’s called Get in the pickup. Referencing his cattle dog . I think another early one , Roper ,Rider and a heck of a windmill man. I could see myself in many of the subjects he wrote about.
  7. That is a really nice older tractor. Good luck with it

    Finished wheat

    Yes , it is a 856. The front end is a factory adjustable one . I’ve only saw one other although some on here have said there more common than u think. It’s a good tractor
  9. Got the crop in the other day . The ground was really powdery after disking. Hard to get footing with a full drill, need to get bigger tires. Finally used the 52. It did a good job but has quite a little blow by

    Auction report

    I’ve been to a lot of sales in these parts. Not sure I’ve ever saw a 50 series tractor a 1486 and a cub lowboy much less all three on the same sale. Pretty rare tractors for these parts

    Auction report

    I went to bid on the 5288, I was willing to go about 12. I still think it was a good buy for someone. The weights were worth $800 and new tires. , another $2000 ? I bid up to $5000 on a rough looking but good running 4010. It went for 51 or 5200. I think the guy that bought the 154 paid to much and his wife was definitely pissed. She was kinda cute standing in the rain all day.
  14. Watched these sell on Sunday. The 1486 went for about $8100, the 52 for $14500 , and the 154 for $3000. They also had a FWA 8940 with 1900 hrs and Miller loader for $50 or 51000. They said the 52 had about $12000 stuck in the rear end a few years ago. Tractor had about 9000 hours. I thought it was a very tractor,
  15. Your correct the later ones had different seals , I got some 1 time from Cat. Seems like a agco had bought the line up
  16. Not much to tell. Pull the lever back and it goes up. Push it ahead and it goes down. 🙁 sorry couldn’t resist. I think the breakout force is either 3500 or 4200 hundred pounds . You have a heck of a good outfit.

  21. Dumb question but could u have bad gas ? My truck seems to get water in the back coil on the drivers side , it runs pretty crappy until I clean it out . Also a 04 v10
  22. If you don’t need the wide stance I would slide the axle in. Always felt there stronger that way
