  1. Been staying busy the last couple months, wrapped up school in mid May and earlier I was elected 2nd Vice President for Associated Student Government at our local two year Junior College. I have 15 different yards I mow along with working for other people, gardening, and about anything else I can find that interest me. I got into matchbooks earlier this year and most are from my grandpa. Two came from Sandhiller. The emblems on the wood are from a chestfreezer that got scrapped a few years ago. When I got matchbooks I put those three between plexiglass, the two outside ones aren’t IH but they both have IH trucks on them. Then I found on eBay a service manual for my 3331 push mower. It also talks about two other mowers and the manual was printed in March 1975. The other I got at auction is from 1980 is of the 7100 and 7200 drill. Third picture are some pieces I got off three different trucks at the scarp yard. Finally my 1586 I got off a FB page that is an original from 1976 and I don’t think it’s been played with hardly. The other is a 966 Hydro I got on an online auction that’s also in real nice shape. Should be from 1972….. you never stop collecting lol
  2. Happy 4th of July! May God bless and all of you have a safe day. Don’t think this has been shared today?
  3. I would go back and like all the posts but its easier and more meaningful to say a huge THANK YOU to the people that have shared the photos. I know I shared most pics I took at Farmall Land U.S.A because I wanted you all to see them. RPRU time is the time of year where I see pics and videos of the show and it makes me realize how much I wish I was there. Keep them coming! Plan on being at Grand Island in 2023 though!
  4. And I owe you and Danny Anderson a great dinner for you both taking time to be on the FFA Radio show?
  5. Sugar beets have started going in the ground. No corn yet that I’ve seen.
  6. Were getting a real nice rain here in NE CO right now
  7. That’s what that 4WD was. My first impression was a Versatile but I knew that wasn’t right. Ive seen an M-R-S in person once and did a thread here in coffee shop a few years ago about it. It might have been an 80
  8. This site has been great for me to be on. I will say I haven’t been on a lot in the last four or so months because of school, other events and such (I will admit looking on FB more). I enjoy reading knowledgeable posts and have gotten along well with the people here with not really any issues. Ive been able to talk to some via text, phone, or pm and I enjoy when I have those opportunities. I never have really gotten into political/ controversial posts although looking back I wish I hadn’t really gotten into any COVID threads at all. I mean I only posted a few times and didn’t go over the top, if I stepped on anyone’s toes with it I truly apologize and wish I could say it face to face. Anyways, I’ve been thankful since being the younger ones that you guys here had looked at my posts and been welcoming.
  9. I thought it was pretty neat to have both on this buyers guide. Adds a little character and history of where it was. If the dealer is on it, its cool to go to the IH dealers of the past website and see when the dealer was in business. Are you close to Canyon? I’m thinking of going to WT for school in the Fall of ‘22
  10. There is truth to what ray54 said about there being some governing with the extension services. But still the good outweighs the bad. I don’t know where Frank H is from but I don’t think it should be a huge deciding factor. I second what all others have said about checking around in your area for clubs. Whatever your kids are interested in, look for a club that has a good amount of other kids that are doing the same projects. You can talk to people you know that are involved with clubs or you can talk to a local extension agent and they can help guide you to a club that may suit you.
  11. Would not be where I am today without 4-H and FFA in terms of public speaking, work ethic, social skills, making connections with different people by going to different fairs and livestock shows over the years. Ive been in 4-H since 2011 (my last year was last year). I stated showing pigs then in 2015 started showing cattle. My sister also has pigs and a steer for this years county fair, state fair, and another show in Nebraska named Arkzarben. 4-H has taken me to Washington D.C. for a leadership conference and then this program took me and my livestock judging team to Kansas City two years ago for a National Livestock Judging Contest— The American Royal. Ive been an officer for my club, our district, my mom is a 4-H leader as well. I could tell you other things too but as you can see the 4-H and FFA things can really take your youth place, and you can hear that from a lot of people that have been in them. And as many could say you make lifelong friends when you are involved with these programs which is almost entirely what its about.
  12. I’ve never scanned anything before and this may be a dumb question but how do you scan? Use a copier? I should know since I’m 20 but I guess not since I have a cellular device?
  13. I could maybe figure it out. Or just take pictures individually and pm them to you. Ill try to find time to do it. Your welcome, that’s why I wanted to do it so some of you guys could these brochures that haven’t. Their not easy to find on the internet
  14. Sounds like you have quite a collection, hope you get time to dig them out some day. On this same auction I got this buyers guide there was a 4166 brochure that I was bid on. Ended up selling for $100
  15. Yep, with a little time here and there, I finally got around to reading the rest of it today.
  16. Here is my 1972 IH Summer-Fall buyers guide?
  17. I got this in the mail a little over a month ago. Last month I won it on a Girard Auction. I was super pumped to get a buyers guide from the early 70’s. It has some water stains but still a really nice piece. Enjoy.
  18. Don’t have one unfortunately but here are some pics I’ve taken in the past 1066 Hydro 1066 at a local pull a couple years ago Another 1066 I saw. Would have been a nice one to have. Cant forget some literature!
  19. Shoot, you found one close. Nice job!
  20. That’s a nice plow. Ive alway thought those were nice plows and would like to have one. Thing is they are all Far East or southeast. Where did you go to get this one?
  21. They own the first diesel with wide front and not the gas 806 (unless I had missed something)
  22. 12 inch spacing 42 foot drill. Not sure where they were made although dad thought Kansas? So the flex king was actually a blade machine/hoe drill. You would unhook the tank from the drill frame and use it as a blade machine. My great uncle made that so it could be converted to a hoe drill and he made the hoes and tubes to go on there and made it so it could be changed quick. I had forgotten about this information so I got this from dad. Great uncle was quite the fabricator. Yea the 1206 was quite a machine. Was quieter than the 650 it replaced on the farm and after it was traded in the 12 was just as much if not more a tractor pulling wise than the 4166.
