  1. Please pray for my dad and his cousins family. Dad's cousin was killed in farm accident yesterday while working with the cattle. His Brahngus bull charged him knocking him down breaking his ribs. One of his broken ribs pierced the arteries on his heart. Everyone is in total shock right now and very upset.
  2. Tomorrow the truck owner is going to being the truck over. So we can see how it fits under the trailer. I will post tomorrow what we find out. Thanks you for your opinions.
  3. We have tried different brands of chore boots over the years and could only get between 1 or 2 years out of them. Then 6 years ago we went Viking 14 boots. These are fireman boots. Really heavy rubber that holds up well. We are on our second pair that have 2 years on them.
  4. Yesterday I went to look at a 01 F350 dually with 7.3L PSD 6speed manual 4X4 with alittle over 201K on the clock. The truck runs and drives perfect. The body and bed has minor surface rust. Original owner is retiring and not needing the truck anymore. The utility bed is 9FT with the top of the boxes to the bed being about 2IN taller than my other trucks bed. Is it possible to put a gooseneck hitch in to pull a trailer? I will not be pulling trailers all the time with the truck. Just a flatbed with seeds and chemicals during planting. Will the boxes clear the neck with out hitting? Has anyone ever pulled gooseneck trailer with a utility bed truck? How was the hitch put in?
  5. Sorry about the mess up on the beginning of the first sentence. Not on my laptop but using my I phone tonight. Didn't notice the garbage, sorry.
  6. UreauWe are residing the grainery that sets along of my driveway with red barn metal. On the side that faces the road there were metal signs. Does anyone know of a place that makes new replacements for them. I would like for them to be as close to original as possible. One was a MoorMans, the other was a Funks seed dealer sign. The other was the old original Farm Bureau that has the names. I have another sign that I need to replace but I will need it custom made. It was from when my grandfather dairy membership sign. If someone knows where I can have them remade or redone. Please let me know. Thanks Mitch.
  7. Me and my family want to wish everyone a very merry Christmas. My you a blessed and safe holiday tomorrow. God's blessings on you and your family.
  8. Merry Christmas to you and your great looking family.
  9. Merry Christmas to you,Brady Boy and everyone on RPF. Ihhogfarmer got my calendar at Rural King today but mine has a very nice farmall H on the cover. January pic is of the 806LP. Just wondering if the H belongs to anyone on RPF?
  10. We made a run to couple different dealers today get parts and look at round balers. The first stop was the New Holland dealer to get parts for the grinder mixer and looked over the baler selection. The to the Case IH dealer for filters, hytran, and a few other parts. These pictures are from their lot not many used tractors at all. Dad is thinking about purchasing the baler. Does anybody have one or have used one. Good bad any advice appreciated. We got two caps for Christmas.
  11. Last night I talked to the original owner. He has all the service records for the tractor including the order forum when he purchased it new. He told me the tractor has around 200 hrs on for new 18 X 38 michelin radials including the duals at 1k per tire. He only ran the tractor one season less than 150 hrs pulling a round baler. Today the owner of the dealers ship called told me that 19,900 was the lowest he could go with the 250.00 deliver charge. I told him he was too high and that was going to look else where. The tractor is in S.E Mo.about 60 north of Mo.and Ark.boarder. I live 15 miles S.E.of Marion Il. But the dealer won't even drop the delivery fee because of the distance. Dad says me has too much in the tractor as trade in. I have found a couple other tractor that I'm going to look at a 5140 and 5240 that I found.

  13. Me and dad went to the dealer to look at the 5088 today. The tractor started and ran really well. The sheet metal was in great shape. Repainted 16 years ago. No oil leaks. The cab interior needs a cab kit. The head liner is held up with duck tape. The seat is shot with the new seat assembly to be installed. Floor mat is full off holes. The tractor has 7966 hrs on it. Parking brake is a linkage and hold well on slopes. My concern is the tractor has a test harness installed. The transmission shifts with no issues. Engine was majored about 6600 hrs after air cleaner tube cracked and sucked dirt in ruining the engine. Dealer is wanting 21900.00 plus 250.00 delivery fee. With the lack of the sentry should I run and not look back. What are your opinions about it?
  14. My father is thinking about coming back to the forums again. It has been about 10 years since he was on Red Power. But he can't remember his password. His handle was So. IL. Farmer. Is there a why to reset his password? Could you please advice him what to do.
  15. Oops I forgot our loader and round baking tractor the Case IH 5240 FWA with a Westerndorf TA 29 loader.
