  1. That is probably the route I will go. Use 2150 red and just use a "white" white on the wheels rather than the IH off white. Thanks guys.
  2. I guess what I’m asking has the shade of red stayed the same over the years and how do I get paint or a paint code? Thanks.
  3. I’m planning to build a new hay rack on a Westendorf gear that was my Grandpa’s. I think my Dad bought it on his retirement auction. I’d like to paint it before I build a rack. I’m guessing this gear is from the 60’s or 70’s? I know it was red and think it had white rims. Would the colors they used on these gears be the same as what are still used today by Westendorf? I also included a picture of a gear like we had under gravity wagons in the 80’s. Did the older gears have any decals like this?
  4. I have a 3 x 18” 710 that I bought several years ago. I went up around Owatonna MN to pick it up. I hardly ever use it but when I do play with it it’s great to plow stalks and not have to stop and unplug it. What I would like to find now is a fully mounted 450 3 x 16”. Just never see them around year. I think by the time those were made everyone around here had moved onto bigger plows.
  5. Will need to be a 710. They did not make a 720 3 bottom.

    I'm not at all opposed to electric vehicles. From what I've seen the performance can be extremely impressive. My simple mind thinks of the electric RC cars I had as a kid, basically 0 to wide open in a split second. Now I know that doesn't work exactly the same in a larger heavier vehicle, but still the performance is impressive. But as TP and Lorenzo have said even as EV's become more common in the future, which I believe they will. There is no way to completely shutter the petroleum industry. It will still need to be used for a long time for internal combustion engines as well as o
  7. I've attached a couple pictures of mine. It is a '72 diesel. When I was in high school I helped a farmer who had a gas 656 hydro, he had a 4 row fast hitch cultivator and would hire me to cultivate for him. At the time Dad had me cultivating with a 560 and a 4 row fast hitch cultivator so the 656 seemed liked a really cool tractor to a young kid. Ever since then I always wanted one. If you intend to do a lot of tillage work a gear drive would be better. But as you can see from my picture they do work for some occasional tillage. I use mine on a 12' Bush Hog mower, my 8' disc mower,
  8. I had the same thought about using a vibrator on the bin. But I suppose if that worked they would be doing it. Terrible situation. So the practice is to stand in the trailer and poke up into the bin? Sounds like a scary situation just waiting for an accident like this.
  9. Wold Wheel, definitely an option. I've gotten implement wheels from them in the past and forgot about them. https://www.woldinc.com/
  10. Looks like fun. I always have to laugh when I see plow day pictures. Usually some more modern equipment doing "pre-tillage" like the Cat Challenger and disk or the 8550 and disk. If you like playing with the old equipment why don't you go out there with a 2 row stalk chopper or a 37 disk that barely cuts the stalks.😄 Just teasing of course.
  11. It was a good game. The Dodgers should win considering they have the 2nd highest payroll in baseball.
  12. This what you see when there is something in your area.
  13. This screen shot should show the “AR”
  14. I have the freebie version too. I’m using it on an iPhone.
  15. If you click AR in the upper left corner you can point it at a plane in the sky to see what it is.
  16. My brother had a 1586 and he got Unverferth step up rims to replace 20.8 x 38 with 18.4 x 42. Just my opinion but if replacing rims anyway that is a better size.
  17. Just a few corn harvest pictures. And a pretty sunset picture.
  18. I will have to look for a part number or any markings. I can't say for sure that it is IH.
  19. In soft wet conditions they will keep rolling when the big diamond tread tires sometimes will slide and push in the mud.
  20. Growing up we always called these cultivator wrenches. I don’t remember ever using them but had several hanging in sheds. Dad said they used them to remove the drawbar and install the rear rig or tighten the front mount cultivator to the frame. Anyway I have this one that is different than others I have. Most just have a handle on 1 end but this has a square socket on the handle end. Also it has a notch in the hex socket. So are these older? What is the purpose of the notch in the socket?
  21. We used a 1586 on the grain cart for a few years. I teased my brother that I felt like I was in a 1980 Successful Farming Magazine. I guess I should have been happy to have a cab with air, heat, and a radio. Running a grain cart with no cab could be a miserable job.
  22. The plow Searcyfarms posted is a 34-F34, I think I'm remembering the model number correctly. This was made at the same time frame as the 300/400. I have a 34-F34A, same thing but has a hitch that releases rather than the coil spring. As others have said the original poster's plow is not a 311. It is the model after the 34-F34 and prior to the 311.
  23. Thanks for the pictures. I've never tried the tillage radishes personally but have been around some fields of them and they smell terrible when they start to rot. Are you unloading at your own place or at a processor/buyer? It's interesting the way it is plumbed, I assume separate tubes for different bins. But that must be a painfully slow process with that small vac.
  24. My Dad has a NH 68 baler that has a chopper in place of the pickup. Many years ago we used it to bale some for hog bedding if we didn’t have enough straw. Some guys around here will grind them and mix 2 round bales of hay to 1 of stalks to feed to cows. They say they really eat them well when they are ground.
