  1. I washed and waxed the 1256 today! I'll submit a before and after pick.
  2. There was an old saying that I heard back in the late 80s that comes to mind when I see that tractor. "That's tits"
  3. It's a 2255 and the engine is a recently overhauled 3208 NA CAT from what I've gathered. Just having a little fun with it
  4. I think that might actually be a young girl. Which would certainly be insult to injury
  5. I can't say with 100% certainty that the 6030 had a turbo. But it was pointed out in their conversation that the Oliver didn't so I'm assuming it did I guess. I don't think there was much more than a handful of NA 6030s and most of the ones that were either had one added or have been repowered by now.
  6. That's fair. So what do you think is happening with these guys then? Was the White sick in 85? Is the 6030 sick now? The way the story goes the guy was pretty proud of his 6030 so I can't believe it was junk.
  7. That's easily the best field cultivator we've had btw. I guess if you really want to get down to the meat and potatoes of it. Other than 2 cylinder JDs I don't dislike any equipment just some people. And I've never said a 6030 is a POS but more than likely overrated
  8. I'm not calling the guy a liar. I'm saying it's possible that maybe being so young that maybe his perspective might've been skewed a little bit. I'd seriously have to see something like that to believe it. I dont dislike people who have run Deere or Deere equipment just the smug ones that act like everything else is junk. When it comes to the 6030 that happens to be a fun one to tear down because that's the Joker you guys think you have in your hand. When in fact it's just another tractor. I've never heard Oliver guys talk about the 2-180 in the way JD guys do the 6030.
  9. I can say with very high confidence is everybody on this forum out ran their dad in the field or wanted to run faster or a higher gear than dad did. From the time I was 10 until now at 43 he says I'm going too fast.
  10. Sure didn't. Hurt some feelings showing pictures and sharing a story of a guy who showed one up in a field day. Even heard another tall tale beyond what I've even thought I'd hear. Half of the reason I do this is for fun and half is to not give in to the consensus that is happening in the world that JD is and always was dominant.
  11. Well the 6030 could've been turned up but I'd have to see that. Sounds like another tall tale to me. We're talking about a 25,000 pound articulated 4wd tractor here
  12. I'll just add that this guy said the 5-18" was all that 6030 can handle and judging by the smoke rolling out of it I believe him. Just seams like a pretty poor showing for this legendary power house of a tractor that they'd like you to believe.
  13. For people who like to spread propaganda on here that the big JDs are unstoppable. Again I have nothing against these tractors I just like to make these guys a little less boastful on here. Also the 3208 is confirmed NA so even if it is turned up he could have only gained a few hp. Said the guy in the 6030 was pretty surprised what the Oliver had. He's running 5-18s I didn't catch what the Oliver was pulling but it's obviously bigger
  14. With this cold wet spring we're having in SE MN I had some help trying to get the crops in today.
  15. The drive gear was also replaced since it had some wear on it.
