  1. I've used the 856 for some light work around the farm but never had time to get the chassis painted. I worked this summer on building an addition to the shop. This is a 36x40 addition (same size as the main shop). This new part will have a parts department and a mezzanine on top of that. This room will be where the restoration projects will be in and the main shop can be opened up for the farm repairs again. New build has 3 inches of closed cell spray foam insulation on walls with 24 inches of blown fiberglass in the ceiling.
  2. Hi nate, I'm your neighbor to the southwest and I got 1-3/4 this morning. How much rain did you get?
  3. Here she is at 5 months.
  4. 12.4x46 mounted 12 row 22 inch white planter.
  5. Here's my 1086. Bought it from a retired farmer in 2007. All this tractor does is planting for me. This is actually my favorite tractor on the farm. Really enjoy driving it in the spring. It's all original paint and I have replaced the cab interior. 1979 model.
  6. Looks very nice Danny. I like the retro 1206 look and color. Well done.
  7. Happy birthday ?
  8. Ran the 856 most of the day on the rock picker. Everything seems great,,not leaking anywhere. Hopefully I get time this summer to clean it up and paint the chassis.
  9. Yes Dan is correct. If a person tries to turn it around on an 06 the TA lever will hit it when pulled back.
  10. Picked up the all wheel drive 806 in 1983, paid $500.00 . It was a total wreck. Fixed everything and used it until 1995 doing tillage. Restoration was done again in 1999 and don't use it much anymore. The two wheel drive gets used alot. Paid $1500.00 for it with the rear end out. Fixed it in my shop and has been a very good tractor. Would someday like to repaint it but it's always hooked up to something.
  11. I bought this one in 2000 with a bad engine. I did the major engine overhaul in my shop. Another one saved. It was on it's way to a salvage yard. Was a couple miles south of me. Was at the right place at the right time.
  12. Your hard work payed off. I looks and sounds really nice. Just curious where you got the new fuel shut off valves under the tank?
  13. I have used this. Bought it at Mills Fleet. Dissolves tar fast.
  14. Congrats on your 1486 purchase. Looks nice.
  15. Firestone Deep Thread. Really stiff deep lugged tire.
  16. Very nice...I still farm with a 1688 combine and have no intentions of get rid of it. Works very well. You did a good job!
  17. Our new puppy. The kids just love her. She's a great pyrenees and golden retriever mix.
  18. Prayers from my family and I also here in central MN.
  19. Thanks, can hardly wait to get the chassis cleaned up and painted this summer. Then back in the shop and completely reassembled.
  20. No blow by,,,no smoke,,,no leaks.
  21. Located north east of Hutchinson. 35 miles straight south of St. Cloud. And yes we just had a 6 inch snowfall last week. Just melted here and now we're getting a forecasted rain of 2 inches. We were dry last fall but it can quit anytime. Probably start planting corn the 2nd week of April.
  22. Nothing here yet Dale. Located in central MN.
