  1. Works great I do it all the time. Paul
  2. Wife and I are looking to buy a fifth wheel travel trailer.Anyone have personal recommendations?Narrowed search to a good four season model about thirty feet long.Something built in the last five to ten years.Budgeting around 20-25k.Towing vehicle is a 2006 Chev duramax extra cab short box with a B&W turnover ball gooseneck with a fifth wheel companion hitch. Thanks Paul

    I wanted another tractor with a/c.Worked for me.
  4. Kinda neat picture.Our neighbors took this picture of me cutting hay yesterday evening while they were out buzzing around in their plane.A little hard to see in the shadows but I'm in the lower right corner of the picture.The red tractor on edge of oat field is a 686. Paul
  5. I'm the second owner of this one.1977 model with D312.Has just over 5k hours.Bought it with the mount o matic.I put the rops/canopy on it from a salvaged Hydro 70.New clutch and t/a and 16.9/38s.Their a nice tractor.I have a 1976 Farmall 666 pretty much identical to the 686. Paul
  6. D9T for pushing wood chips
  7. This 966 with 6600 hours is still on Montana Craigslist.Been on there for over a year.Asking price is 8900.Several pictures on ad,it looks pretty clean.As an aside I hauled this 1983 Deere 4250 w/powershift home yesterday.In really good condition.Paid 18k,was the first one to call on it so got lucky.Pretty sure it's a 22-26K tractor. Paul
  8. Yep Shurmans Iron Ranch near Ridgefield..tractor pulls and show I think twice a year. And I do mean socialism...picking our pockets and using our hard money for their grand utopian schemes. Paul
  9. Agree about the cab.As you guys said would be used mainly in summer tedding and raking.Open windows and door with a good fan would do wonders.I cut hay with a rops equipped 886 and it works well...easy to get on and off.Would not be the case with that 856.Get what you pay for I guess. Paul
  10. Seen this on craigslist,about a three hour drive from me.Ad says runs and works as it should.Did not call on it yet.Asking price is 9k.Depending on hours/condition was thinking 6-7k.Don't see too many around here with a factory cab.Comments greatly appreciated. Paul
  11. My triple six with a D312 (few more ponies than a D282) plowing sod with a Ford 101 with 3-16's is a good match.You should have no problem pulling 3-16's. Paul
  12. They work good.I mounted splitter valve to front of loader frame to control a bale grapple.Plumbed into bucket circuit not loader arm circuit.Have push button mounted on spool lever that's used to control bucket.(tractor scv's are used for loader functions).With tractor running,spool that controls bucket works like normal,when button is pushed and held spool controls grapple function...release button and the spool goes back to controlling bucket.Works slick.Button thats mounted on spool is wired to relays that control solenoids on splitter valve.

    Hay Pics

    Cutting bent grass with 886 and Deere 1350 moco.Baling hay with White 2-88 and Hesston inline.Tedd and rake with 686.Pick up bales with 666. Paul
  14. Bingo...remember the Rodney King riots in LA.Armed business owners in Chinatown were on the roofs of their buildings protecting what was theirs...needless to say it worked. Paul
  15. Ok,I'll play.. series III Whites.
  16. Had a front row seat.Was nineteen years old and had just finished the morning milking and was walking out of the milking parlor when the first devastating eruption occured...looked like the fires of **** were literally coming out of the bowels of the earth.Man what a site to behold!Our dairy was in Brushprairie,Washington about thirty five miles southwest as the crow flies from St.Helens Lucky for us the mountain blew in the opposite direction.There were several more minor eruptions through the summer and the prevailing winds would blow some of the ash our way.Had to wear a mask when cutting hay because the haybine would kick up clouds of ash.The ash destroyed the plunger bearings in the baler that year as well.Also it was common for folks to stretch pantyhose over the air intakes of vehicles to keep from plugging air filters..lol.Don't remember if it did any good. Paul
  17. Yup.Civil liberties,property rights are the cornerstone of a just society. We're in this mess because too many Americans are willing to give up their rights for some measure of safety.We all know what Ben Franklin said about such people. Paul
  18. Time for us residents of Washington State and the rest of the Country for that matter to reassert our rights in a very strong and unequivocal way before their gone forever.Seems we are our own worst enemy when half the population blindly accepts everything the government says or does without question.Biggest problem I see is the average American is woefully ignorant of their God given rights.Especially as it relates to first amendment. Paul
  19. Missouri Mule, I raise hay and sell to local customers.Has paid for all my equipment and inputs plus some left over.I love working ground and making hay,so I guess its a hobby that pays for itself.Also have a full time job as a journeyman mechanic in a paper mill. Paul
