  1. It's still hot and very dry here. It's so dry our weeds in our garden are struggling to stay alive. What little tobacco there is, it's about 18" tall, blooming and the bottom leaves are yellow. Looks like an insurance crop year for that. Some people haven't even planted beans because the ground is to hard.
  2. When I was a kid before dad switched to a round baler he had a new holland super 68. I remember when I was about 8-10 years old he had gotten done raking and hooked the baler and the left tire was leaking at the valve stem core. He told me to hold some pressure on it while he went in and ate a sandwich. I got tired of holding it and put a tiny rock in it to stop the leak. He came out and said hope it holds and baled the rest of the day with it.
  3. All we do with these 2 is play in our garden and move a few things around. Question, do you have the original owners manual for yours? If so can you tell me what the print date is on the back of it? I got one from a guy last week but the date is 4-21-67 I'm trying to find out the closest date to '70 or '72 they actually printed. A friend of mine has one that is dated 1973 with the same part number but his has Rev. 6 on it.
  4. Plans right now are to leave it as original as possible. This one is a 1972, we also have a one owner all original 1970 as well. It's no where near as nice as this one is though.
  5. He found the rest of the cultivators and brought them about a week later.
  6. The load day and after getting it home getting everything on it.
  7. He brought the hopper, pull bar and some of the cultivators by the next day.
  8. A friend of mine inherited this 140 from his uncle several years ago. I've ask several times if he wanted to sell it. He always said no. Several weeks ago he came to me and said he realized he wasn't going to use it and ask if I'd like to buy it. I said let's go look at it. It's a 1972 model, all original. I looked at it said I'll take it, he said you want to talk to your wife first? I said no, I'll take it. It had been sitting for a couple years so I got the winch, etc thinking I would have to winch it on the trailer. I carried gas and jumper cables as well. Pulled the truck close enough to jump it after putting gas in it and it wouldn't fire. Found a piece of sand paper and sanded the points and it fired up and I drove it on the trailer. These are the pictures I took the day we looked at it.
  9. Found some pictures of raking hay with the A from a few years ago.
  10. Here’s our A, it’s a 1949. My dad gave it to me. I haven’t washed it in about 4 years and got it out Father’s Day weekend and gave it a bath. I had a set of 2 row cultivators for it but sold them recently. That’s my dad and my kids on it before the bath. I restored it about 20 years ago.
  11. I've spent a lot of time on a 2 cylinder JD cultivating corn, raking hay, etc, it doesn't bother me at all.
  12. Also a McCormick NO. 1 Platform Carrier.
  13. I've restored a few pieces of fast hitch implements over the past couple years and decided to build the same thing in a scale model. The first one is an IH #100 rear blade. The scale is 8" long. Here are some before and after pics of the real thing as well. A good friend owns a powder coat business and powdercoat painted these for me.
  14. We have a Troy-Bilt Horse tiller and had the wood splitter attachment for it. Had an 8hp Briggs engine from a pump so I decided to marry them together for use with the 140. Used a FH prong off a Holland transplanter that wasn't being used.
