  1. Letter Series at Work

    The old B still earns her keep. Over the years this tractor has done a lot of jobs, but now auger duty is about it.
  2. Older hybrid reliability?

    a few years ago I had the parts man check the price on a hybrid battery for one of the Ford models, it was over 10,000 dollars. So the first thing I would do before buying one is check on the price of a new high voltage battery, and unless they were willing to deduct that amount from their asking price, walk away. In all reality hybrids are only feasible in a fairly warm climate and majority city driving. Do yourself a favor , if you are looking for mileage, stay away from all wheel drive and opt for the 4 cylinder engine instead of the V-6 and you will be way ahead in the end.
  3. Fast hitch for tractor pulling

    the green guys don't like the fast hitch because of the location of the front mount , think it gives an "unfair advantage" , the ones with the swinging drawbar mounts in the same place so if you can pull off of it I don't see much difference. It's not like you could raise the hitch without anyone noticing.
  4. 2017 IHCC #33 PLOWDAY

    Great video ! Well worth the wait, that was a good day and watching this I can almost smell the dirt again. I think everyone there enjoyed themselves.

    Can't blame him, that one would be hard to part with, it cruised right along with that 4 bottom.
  6. Chapter 33 plowday pics

    I will do that, I think I got one of him also, but he was looking the other way. He was quite a guy, had some interesting stories .
  7. Chapter 33 plowday pics

    4 bottom on the 766 . Here's some more pics. There was a nice M with a semi mount but I must not have gotten a pic of it, hopefully someone else did.
  8. Chapter 33 plowday pics

    A nice fall day in northern Indiana had a good time plowing with this bunch of guys.

    My plan is to be there again this year, most likely with the rusty F-30 again. I have a 34 W-30 that used to live and work up in that part of the state that I would like to bring but I am not sure it is quite field ready yet so maybe next year for it. It has been a long time since it has been out in a field plowing. Should be another great day and I encourage anybody thinking about going to do so, it's a big field and most parts pull easy.
  10. Finished Project - McCormick No. 4 Tractor Plow

    I'm impressed with all 3 of them, the plow the M and the F-12, great job.
  11. Maybe dumb question, why no 1006 ?

    one of the old Harvester Highlights had an article on the F-40 and I believe 2 were built using the power improved 15-30 engine ( 22-36 HP ) . The article mentioned issues with crankshaft failures if I remember right and for various reasons they decided a larger row crop tractor was not feasible .
  12. Plow id

    looks like a 412 maybe

    Great video ! Lots of nice tractors there and always a great bunch of people.
  14. NW Ohio plow day

    Some neat pictures and videos, it was a nice day , ground was a bit tough in spots but I think a good time was had by all. Thanks to Mark, Scott Equity Exchange , the land owner and everyone else who helped put this on. As always a nice variety of colors out in the field and nice to see some young participants out there along with the rest of us.
