  1. So did u recover everything in red ? Or able to order it ? Looks nice
  2. They do die and dry down . For me thou the time it didn’t freeze it took a long time . Think I was combining in Jan . You can’t combine them green. Even sort of green works the heck out of the combine
  3. I guess u have to realize that if there financing that it’s required that the place is finished. I understand it’s not your problem if u made the deal as is for cash. A person has to be willing to give some . I would be sour also . Did they sign paperwork contingent that the house passes inspection knowing full well it wouldn’t. I would be very disappointed in the realtor. I think I would tell them all I decided to pull it from the market and Finnish it.
  4. Yes combine late October or mid November, have combined the after the first also . These didn’t look like much but ran like 1800lbs a acre
  5. Good thing this isn’t political, I’d rather not talk about the young man who wanted to buy a M who can’t afford to drive his pickup to pick it up much less gas to tinker with it . It will become like many things a lost dream to many.
  6. I was told u flip the differential over so u have the forward gears going backwards? Not gave that much thought.
  7. So what r u pulling the drills with ? Looks like a nice modern setup with a old twist tractor ??
  8. Someone probably had one on before ?
  9. To be honest I’ve thought maybe summer fallowing a large portion might be cheapest
  10. Might wanna go with 18.4x38s then
  11. There’s a point you need to do a complete rebuild or new motor, But it’s kinda about value for me . I’ve spent the $23 for the oring and usually $90 for rod bearings . this has worked for me on combines and tractors. No regrets and ready to do it again
  12. Remember a old cowpokes cartoon. If we’re gonna buy hay bales for $2 and sell hay bales for $2 we’re gonna have to get a bigger truck 😳
  13. I kinda like this option, couldn’t find the 706 picture

    3588 price

    Decent older rubber, ran when parked long time ago. Think the transfer case out
  15. Everyone has different needs I guess. Dad would chop corn with the 806 and she would just walk along in gear. Myself I ran a 862 Massey pull type with a 100 hydro, nice on corners but switched to the 1586. Just put it in gear and go. Lots of gears are kinda like a smart phone 📞, don’t really miss them till u have them.

    Looking at a 3588 non runner, pretty straight. Think 3 grand is fair
  17. 86s r good tractors. They were really in the trenches when operator comfort became more important than machine handiness , I think more maneuverable than a Deere. Still find myself grabbing hydraulic levers from the ground to hook up old equipment. Old neighbor of mine put a loader on his 4020 and the hydraulic levers r on the left side so u could shift with the right. Same old time concept. The 40 series Deere really won out, nice tractors to operate, still pretty handy. I think the 50 series was loosely based on them . Right hand shifting. Longer wheel base gave a better ride . And really with bigger equipment turning on a dime became less important.
  18. Did anyone mention Super M’s . - 20 below not plugged in and barely turns over and they fire off. Not many start that good

    So is freedom convoy to controversial for red power . ?
  20. I don’t no anything about them , I just watched from the stoplight , maybe he had her at idle ? But it looked pretty slow from where I was . I thought for what they cost they would be faster. Shows how the right or wrong operator can sell a machine.
  21. I was watching a guy clean out the lot where they sell JD lawn and garden tractors, heck they must have 20 or 30 of them . Nice little rig with cab and loader. Guessing 25hp. When he went to dump snow after pushing it up on the pile the dang thing moved so slow u couldn’t even rattle the bucket out. Maybe the hydraulics where turned down ? I’d be pretty disappointed if I couldn’t shake out the bucket kinda how u have to do it with wet snow.
  22. The IH factory or deluxe cab would be a easy choice. Although still fairly loud I always felt they were a tight quality. The others were just noise amplifiers. They all help keep the north wind off . To many years on a 4020 or 56 cabs have left my ears ringing. Swear they ring more just looking at those machines. Still love them thou
  23. Your boys running a what looks to be a newer front assist JD , Your running a f20 . Seems like dads are always sacrificing for there kids . Just a little fun sarcasm there 😉
