    Case model S

    Was the J. I. Case model S a reliable model and what would be one worth nowadays? There is one for sale at a local auction that seems to have an older restoration behind it.
  4. thank you for the infos, looks like it works for some folks.
  5. ya thought about that too seems like everything now a days has to be huge! Sadly we can't get some of them European made smaller combines they would be around the size of a 915 IH combine or so.
  6. A month or so ago one of we got one field seeded with winter rye and another 80 to over 100 acres with winter rye as well. In our family we haven't grown any winter rye since my grandfather did long ago but that was to thresh it. Anyway to my question can winter rye be cut for silage more then once before it heads out?
  7. yup looks like it, I reckon some folks are going nuts because they can't go online lol for them its the end of the world
  8. them twine ropes aren't from a binder but specially made to bind sheaves by hand, here is a video where similar ones are being used the binding starts around 10 minutes and 30 seconds in the film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgbnSyltoKY
  9. Minneapolis Moline back in the late 30s or early 40s was a pioneer when it came to LP gas fueled tractors, I have read an article that DEUTZ company has developed a new Hydrogen Engine.
  10. Grandma made this a couple of years ago out of binding ropes used to bind wheat, spelt, oats, and etc by hand
  11. yup, and Aebi goes back to 1883 when the company was founded but the founder Johann Ulrich Aebi (1846-1919) started making seed drills, firefighting pumps, and mowers on his family farm, well technically he worked in the shop and his wife ran the farm lol. JU Aebi's first machine which he build as a teenager can be viewed at a local museum, a seed drill.
  12. no that is an AEBI Transporter TP 460 manufactured by the Aebi & Co. AG. in Burgdorf Switzerland, them Transporters can be used with a hay loader, manure spreader and etc. Kinda a cross between a tractor and a truck lol
  13. ya I hear ya, kinda feel that way about farming
  14. them hills have been farmed since the early to mid Medieval period, here is a video from the emmental area from the 1950s
  15. Ya forgot to warn ya about it being in german lol, its about different set ups to hang up either partly ground dryed hay or fresh cut grass hanged up on wire or on them fence with boards. The idea behind it was to keep the hay off the dewy ground and when it rained it wouldn't spoil it. This type of haying also called tripod haying was a common way to hay back in Switzerland, parts in Germany and even in Sweden. My grandfather did it this way back when he farmed and my parents did it one year that was wet as well and the hanged up hay turned out to be quality feed and the stuff on the ground not so much. The positive was only two or three steps: mow, hang up and haul it home. Negative part it takes a while to set up. -Urs
  16. there is also a haying video from that farm
  17. those came from Europe that where made at the Clayson plant
  18. here would be an idea to put up hay when the weather is questionable
  19. I reckon I must be going on some folks nerves asking about some other tractor brand that is red and no worries I won't ask about Deere's lol Anyway a nice lookin Cockshutt 30 from 1948 is up for sale next month with a couple of new parts on it. How good where the Cockshutt 30s I reckon better then a Ford N series, oh and there is also a Cockshutt seed drill from about the same era maybe earlier for sale. I don't know much about the tractor end of that brand only that it was made here in Canada and they where the first with the LPTO

    No I don't think it was anything on your thread, maybe something on one of my threads (loose hay, alpine haying, and etc) or maybe the odd comment.
  21. There is a used International 4186 4WD tractor for sale at the local auction next month and was wondering if anyone had any exp on them the good and bad? I haven't looked at it in person yet but will do that one of the next view days.
