  1. The real question is how good the N series would have been if they used Hytran........
  2. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/636359737032686/?ref=browse_tab&referral_code=marketplace_general&referral_story_type=general&tracking={"qid"%3A"6968471517701757989"%2C"mf_story_key"%3A"30475138568095484"%2C"commerce_rank_obj"%3A"{\"target_id\"%3A30475138568095484%2C\"target_type\"%3A6%2C\"primary_position\"%3A59%2C\"ranking_signature\"%3A5957096515448078336%2C\"commerce_channel\"%3A501%2C\"value\"%3A1.0352452918621e-5%2C\"upsell_type\"%3A108}"}
  3. Have you played with the high speed adjustment on the carb? sounds like it might just need adjusting................ If you jam the governor so it can't interfere what happens?
  4. have you pushed around with a stick on stuff like sheet metal and radiator shroud etc. almost sounds like a sheet metal squeak or wind noise like a car window down just a little
  5. I started with one of these Garelli Bronco 50 except mine had lights/horn and stuff.
  6. that would work awesome in the blackberry vines and locust mowing
  7. Taking on all the stuff that goes with a new property and learning what it is you want to do and when to do it do you really want to start with a tractor that's not ready to go? It's ok to be new to stuff. But new to all of it? Are you mechanically inclined? Have a place and tools to work on stuff? Like to work on tractors rather than be with other people and do family stuff? That's what's waiting for you with an older tractor. Stop looking at dealership tractors if budget is a concern. Go private party. There are lots of guys on here that know these tractors inside and out and all that comes with them. They don't mind or get knocked down when there is an issue. Is that you? If you go with an older machine as you have been discussing go with the most available. 966, 1066, 886, 986, 1086 etc. Go with parts availability and a tractor every one else wants so if you need to fix it you can find parts. If or when you don't want it you can easily sell it off when you know more about your needs. There is plenty of room in your field to maneuver regardless of frame size. It's like driving a regular cab pickup vs an extended cab. No big deal. Get a tractor that is already set up so you are fixing what is wrong with it rather than trying to swap stuff around. Spend your time learning to farm your new place rather than learning the ins and outs of various old series of tractors. Not because there is anything wrong about them or they are not capable but because there is no need to for the money you are going to spend anyways. Cabs are great. Instant canopy just take the doors and windows out/off. Lose some accessibility for maintenance and visibility at the same time. Are you storing your tractor outside or inside. Cabs protect seats and gauges and such not just you. Larger tractors are already heavy and help ballast a front loader without so many weights or fluid. Plan in the long run to have two tractors. There are other brands. Most on here own more than one color. It's ok. How many "newer" tractors do you see with narrow fronts? Contained in that is your answer. Gas is great for starting in cold weather and will do the work. Pay as you go or pay upfront. Just like pickup trucks. Lose when you sell as fewer want them and debate their purchase decision. Just like your doing now. Contained in that is your answer. Get a tractor that came with 3 point not a conversion so all the proportions are correct. Your starting new. So start with newer stuff. If your dazed and confused then get the newest nicest utility/loader/mower you can to handle property chores and have your first few seasons of field work and haying contracted or on share with established farmer in the area. You can do it all with one tractor but not one tractor will do it all conveniently.
  8. Went to the farm today and used this thread as an excuse. One clip jammed the first shot and 2 or 3 more............. The other clip rocked them all out...... I use the cheap yeller bucket stuff thou, even the 10/22 catches one once in a while
  9. My Papa started his 8n while standing next to it. It knocked him down and ran over him. He kept his head out from under the rear tire but the brush hog skid caught and removed a knee cap. Thankfully the pto was not engaged. When he got better he traded for a new diesel 2600 with a 6 ft. sidewinder brush hog. He splurged and had a full belly pan made that kept the brush from beating him to death. He only used them for mowing. Don't start your stuff standing next to it..................
  10. This is neato, even to just drive around on https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1416270775414780/?ref=browse_tab&referral_code=marketplace_top_picks&referral_story_type=top_picks&tracking={"qid"%3A"6967727878675650678"%2C"mf_story_key"%3A"287187036330052355"%2C"commerce_rank_obj"%3A"{\"target_id\"%3A287187036330052355%2C\"target_type\"%3A6%2C\"primary_position\"%3A0%2C\"ranking_signature\"%3A4934271004756148224%2C\"commerce_channel\"%3A501%2C\"value\"%3A0%2C\"upsell_type\"%3A21%2C\"grouping_info\"%3Anull}"}
  11. I traded an overunder .22/20 gauge for my AR7
  12. have her wear roller skates the next time she drives it and see if you have the same problem..........
  13. Kinda cool for packing and carrying on a trip, under truck seat. As accurate as I am. One clip seems to jam a bit compared to the other. Super light, weather proof. I'd trade for a lever henry, bolt action of some sort or pistol How bad ya want one? it's camo so extra better
  14. be aware that some of the movements, if not done properly, can lead to injuries
  15. could just pull the jeep with a strap and have the wife steer it around stuff
  16. put a repo wrecker lift on the back. just have the rear axle of the jeep on the ground with not much trailing you down the road. then you could use it for other stuff.
  17. I've seen such a thing. The pivot was close up by the rear axle. with a hydraulic ram to position it side to side. You won't use it in traffic Ditto on the no spring mount. Ditto on the toy hauler Just a regular old hitch will work........................ flat tow so you can disconnect and not have anything to back has its merits............ Camp at loose campgrounds?
  18. Once that stuff gets started it can be a pain to shut down. Even if it doesn't really hurt anything it's not theirs to use.
