  2. Tractor to Start Farming With

    One way plane ticket to SC, a couple fill ups on Diesel, and 3 vacation days surely ain't 2K? it's about 700 miles one direction. At 20mph that's 35 hours. I've been told these tractors get about 10 mpg?? So that's 70 gallon of diesel at 3.50 a gallon is 245 bucks. So for 300 bucks in diesel, 35 hours of drive time, and a cheap one way ticket it could probably be driven home for less than 500 bucks! Of course I'm only kidding. 700 miles on the road it probably wouldn't have any tires left once you got it home!

    This looks like a pretty nice original condition 1486 that's been taken care of. Later model one too as evidenced by bent shifter handles, and bigger steps. https://www.auctiontime.com/listings/farm-equipment/auctions/online/24456469/international-1486?TransportExhauted=1

    Auction house is a good place to watch, and if you sign up you can bid on stuff. I've yet to win a tractor there, but I do watch and make sure stuff don't go too cheap!

    Yeah there was an auction in Lynnville that had a 1086 I do not know what it brought? 1086 is a pretty common tractor. 131hp and pretty simple for what it is. Some folks don't like the 86 series, but it's hard to argue finding a better workhorse for what they sell for. I really like them but then again I've not had anything better!

    Boonville huh? I'll be over that way later today! I just watched a decent 1486 sell at auction Saturday for 7K but it need rear tires pretty bad. Was a good buy for sure. They sold a 1066 with a IH loader for 6500 too that seemed to run well. There's decent tractors out there in your price range. I wouldn't rule out White tractors either. a 2-105 or 2-135, or 2-155 would suit what you are needing as well. They were good solid tractors, and parts are still available. There's a decent 1586 just south of us on CL for 8K with duals and weights. If your mechanically inclined will help you on these older tractors. I don't care what brand you get after 20-50 years of service they all break, and all need things replaced especially n your price range.
  10. I ran a cabbed 2-105 some as a kid and always liked that tractor. I'd own a 2-105 or 135 if I could find one that wasn't all used up or cost more than I feel they are worth. But when you grow up planting corn with a wore out Allis WD and a 2 row semi mounted planter Anything with power steering seems nice! The biggest tractor dad ever had was a Minnie Mo U302. I never minded using it, but it was a narrow front and in southern IN all we have are hills. If it had been a wide front I probably would of kept it after dad passed. Neighbor dairy farmer had a IH986 back when I was growing up. I loved that tractor and that's why I wanted an 86 series of my own. Now I have 3 and looking for the 4th lol
  11. LOL I was thinking of just getting the 86 series.... That's a little more manageable 786, 886, 986, 1086, 1486, 1586, and 186 Hydro. That's only 7 tractors! Yes I know they made a 686 and a 86 hydro, and a 4186 etc......
  12. 1456 gold demo S/N 13313 progress

    Tractor sure is looking good!
  13. I know I may be biased but I think the 86 series are the best looking cabbed tractors ever built..... Again I might be biased. Spirit of 76 Case was a good looking tractor too though! As was a TW-5 or 10 Please don't kick me off the board for saying that! lol
