  1. They tried this in south Africa too, but the people that ended up with the land thought that the land farmed itself , you know what happened next.
  2. I knew it ahead of time myself, I fix them up because I like them and I hate to see them parted or scrapped.if I find one that is in decent condition ,I leave it like that.
  3. A local guy bought a mm g off of the firestone test center , it never pulled a plow until he got it, he pulled a 5 bottom plow with it, as a kid I had never saw a tractor that big, about all the tractors in the area were 2 and 3 plow tractors. Now I like them all.
  4. Some people put a pile of money into a tractor thinking that they can get it back when they sell it, most of the time that won't happen unless you have something special or find someone that has to have it

    That paint ought to knock the price down to half price of what it is listed at
  6. Some of the early pickers were classified as snappers, meaning they only removed the ears from the stalks,most of them didn't have a busking bed.
  7. You have taken good care of that combine and it shows
  8. And they wonder why third world countries are passing us up, wait they have 4 more years or so of Obiden.
  9. I'm 64 years old, it was not that long ago that we still use a a mounted picker,we didn't like paying to dry corn, we had a new idea ,pretty easy to mount up, usually one afternoon. We liked it because you just drov into a field and started picking,no opening up the field or running over corn.the only down side was storage, you needed a lot of crib space. I miss those days.
  10. There is a tractor and combine salvage yard close to me that I frequent, I am amazed at the number of newer combines that they bring in that are burnt like the ones pictured, years ago you hardly saw this. I guess with these sleek looking machines they really collect the chaff.
  11. When trying to buy ammo in times like these, go to the small gun shops in the rural areas, sure you will pay a little more, but you are not completing with all of the city folks running to the big box stores. Also the little guys are sometimes your friends and neighbors and really appreciate your business.
  12. I cry when I hear taps played
  13. I don't know about þhe true I h bakers for parts, but the I h- n I hybrids are a nightmare for parts, my nephew had one, most parts are not available.
  14. Qi always liked the i h industrial equipment, we had a couple dealers in the area that moved a lot, dont know where it all went. We still have several pans and loaders around, but the dozens are gone, that one sure looks like it's worth fixing
  15. Start out simple, change your pressure switch first,make sure that the hole that the switch screws into is open and not full of rust and other crap, then disconnect the bladder tank install a shut off calve and a gauge ,put air in and see if it maintains pressure, if it does it's time to pull the line out of the well and check the foot valve.make sure it does not have any debris in it. Then take an air hose and pressurize the line with the foot valve on to see if the line has any holes in it. This would be done from the top end of your pipe. This will check the valve and pipe for leaks.
  16. I never drove a semi,never wanted to, I always felt bad for you drivers trying to get into traffic with those monsters, trying to navigate and doing it without killing anyone in the process. Not to mention being away from home a lot of the time and being cooped up in the cab by yourself with no one to talk to but a cb, I admire you guys for being able to do that every day. Sure you have some bad ones, but you have that in every occupation.
  17. When I was in high school working at a local diary farm, the boss sent me out to rake hay with an m farmall, I thought he was off his rocker, at home we always used a 200 or an h ,now you guys change the whole picture, makes me laugh.
  18. Nice shot across the hood going down the highway
  19. We got to go to a tractor show on Friday ,it was at Mt hope ohio, in the heart of amish country, the first one for me this year, all others have cancelled. A great time, everyone enjoyed.
  20. I didn't know that you can get sick of blt's
  21. That didn't seem like to much to pay, the salvage yards will give that for one in that condition
  22. It's a w4 with farmall h decals, it's got a w series hood not an h hood .
  23. I work in a mill in western pa, we melt 90 tons in less than an hour, with one furnace, it takes a lot of scrap to keep that thing happy for a week, a constant flow of trucks and rail cars. Most mills are either down or running at low volume right now, and the Chinese aren't buying much right now. That has a lot to do with the price.
  24. I had an uncle that was an all is man, he decided to switch to a 4020, a repairman dream, after several major repairs he gave up on it, got himself a massey.
