  1. I also have had a DW735 for several years , it has been a very good machine. Kind of an in between from the typical 12” portable and the big heavy stand alone machines. With sharp knives it can handle a 1/16” pass on a foot wide hardwood board without issue.
  2. I hadn’t considered beet juice but I’ll have to look into if any places offer that locally, thanks
  3. I think those half weights do fit , from what I understand they are also hard to track down , I’ll keep that in mind though
  4. I’ve been keeping my eyes out for some rear wheel weights to fit my 300U. Took the fluid out when I repainted the rims last year and now I’m missing that extra traction. IH Part Number : 362 656 R1, pictured in my parts catalog and a picture I googled below. I know it’s a hard set of weights to come by , I’ve posted wanted ads on kijiji in my area, haven’t come up with anything. Anybody think it’s worth continuing the hunt or should I cut my losses and just try to make something else work?
  5. Yes, I took the time to go back and compile a list: Tractor of the Week: #1 - 1486 #2 - 826 #3 - 1566 #4 - 686 #5 - 3588 #6 - 806 #7 - 1066 #8 - 1586 #9 - 5488 #10 - 1256 #11 - 1086 #12 - 4366 #13 - 5288 #14 - 1456 #15 - 986 #16 - 4786 #17 - 560 #18 - 706 #19 - 1026 #20 - 766 #21 - 884 #22 - 4166 #23 - 5088 #24 - 3388 #25 - 966 #26 - 450 #27 - 3788 #28 - 856 #29 - 3088 #30 - 460 #31 - 574 #32 - 886 #33 - 4156 #34 - 3488 #35 - 7488 #36 - 544 #37 - SMTA #38 - 1466
  6. This is my uncle’s blackstripe , only had it for 10 years or so - planted beans with it up until this spring when the MX200 took over. AC works , good running tractor. If I may - I would propose that someone else take over running tractor of the week as it seems many of us enjoy the threads. I would be happy to but if anyone else would like to feel free to speak up !
  7. Thoughts and prayers with you from Ontario.
  8. This was several years ago - uncle had just bought this 1466 BS, took it to the stock antique pull. Not very many tractors competing in stock classes so heavy - just one other local guy with a Deere, i think it was a 4630, the green paint won.
  9. Happy Birthday Indeed! I don't think he's 98 though ...more likely he picked 1923 because the first Farmall was introduced that year?
  10. Not a proud owner ... I wish. Two brothers here in Ontario own this trio - 7488 #12 , 7288 #16 and the 6788 I didn't grab the serial #. Believe the 70s are the only ones in Canada? They were on display at a touring show back on Father's Day and I was able to get grandpa out to see them - needless to say he was pretty impressed. If anyone wants details on the show (it's annual), shoot me a PM.
  11. My cousin picked up an 886 with ROPS 5+ years ago, '77 model. I personally haven't been on it too much but it seems to be a good runner, strong TA. It gets used for odd jobs, usually running augers and pulling silage wagons. If you ask my uncle he'd rather his 806 any day ... unless it's raining , but from what I remember the price was right. I haven't seen too many around with the ROPS, I'm not a fan of the paint scheme the previous owner opted for, maybe she'll get to the front of the line for a paint job someday. Didn't have a very good picture, this is when things get crammed inside for the winter.
  12. Thoughts and prayers go out to you. May he RIP.
  13. Didn't end up having the time to give the buddy seat much attention, a 5 gallon pail and cushion off a shop stool ended up fitting quite nicely and that was "plenty good enough" for grandpa. Rain held off and we had a good ride. Got a video of the convoy before we headed out, the 1066 that was right driving behind us in the 1466 is a real beauty, local guy bought it restored, 4020 behind it is his too, his wife drove that one!
  14. Thanks for ideas guys , It’s a deluxe seat , I think I’ll go with a little 2x4 frame to go in beside , will take some pictures.
  15. Local Club is planning a tractor ride this weekend and I'd like to bring grandpa along - he'd prefer to ride than drive and I want to take something with a cab because it's going to be pretty cold. Anyone have any experience or good ideas for temporarily cramming a second seat in a 1466? 1486 is also an option but I figure the 66 has more room.
  16. It’s in my blood , that’s for sure. Thanks for watching
  17. Glad people are enjoying it ! I do have a video from a while back where grandpa talks about some of the tractor history: I definitely need to get him talking again on the more broader subject of how so many things, including farming have changed in his lifetime. Here's that video for anyone interested : (FYI my old man took the first clip and tractor fever kinda skipped a generation)
  18. Keep fighting! Thoughts and prayers from South-Western Ontario
  19. Got my 90 year old grandpa running the combine yesterday, he was having a ball. For Lorenzo who commented that he hoped to see this and anyone else who saw the video I posted back in the spring; grandpa planted part of this very same field in the MX200 in late May. He used to do quite a bit of the combining back in the day when they were running a JD 6600, he had never run the 9500 before yesterday and the 22 foot head was "a lot to keep an eye on" by his standards. At the end of the video I've got him on the M with a few 400 bushel gravity wagons in tow, front one is about two thirds full, back one empty and that's about all she can handle - need more wheel weights. It was a surprisingly hot day so I got him in the 1466 Blackstripe (AC works) to take the last wagon across the farm to the next field the combine was moving to.
  20. Ontario, Canada ... we think it went to the US in 2002 sometime ... like i said it's a big shot in the dark this many years later
  21. Do you know anything about where that particular tractor came from? I've been actively looking for my grandpa's 856, we don't have a serial number so it's a shot in the dark.
  22. What's the story on the 856, my grandpa's had the extra headlights like your cousins.
  23. I'll be the first to say it. That does not sound like a fun time. We've always had flat spots to unhook from the wagons with the StaFast hitches, things would definitely get to be a pain with no flat ground.
  24. Neighbour with a self propelled forage harvester comes in and opens up a few lanes for us. Gotta love good neighbours.
