    Anybody using LEDs like this?

    Pretty low lumens. Would not expect alot
  2. Can kind of see it in this picture
  3. Not all 1456 are the same. Mine came with a Wise seat which according to parts guys were used for a short period in 1970. From what I have been told IH had a problem in 1970 with their normal seat vendor and bought some from another vendor for a period of time. Took some work to find when looking for parts for it but dealer tracked them down

    pics from Benton Farm toy show

    I should have came down to show I guess. Went a few years ago and was not impressed but looks like it might have improved.
  5. Yup, huge red flag to me when they do that. My interest ends as soon as I hear that and walk away
  6. Around here and in most of this state the dairies that are going out are getting bought up by larger dairies. Facilities are either used as young stock housing or torn down. Bigger operations that go out are usually bought as a satellite facility for larger operations. Guys that are milking 5000 or so might do it on 3 facilities instead of all in one spot due to logistics. Everyone thinks cow numbers are going down when these dairies fold, that is not true. Cow numbers remain the same or usually increase and produce more milk as the survivors are the good managers and the ones that are making lots of milk. Farms numbers decrease but cow numbers increase. Unfortunately the processing facilities are the problem as they can not handle the volume of milk being produced so some of it gets dumped and "balancing" takes place. A few guys may sell the cows and try cash cropping but it usually does not end well. A lot of money spent on dairy infrastructure that sits there and rots and additional money needing to be spent on grain storage, equipment etc at a time when the decision to sell the cows comes, money for that stuff is usually not abundant. Cows are not worth much at sale and lets face it, not a ton of profit in row crops either.
  7. That is $1500 tractor at best in this area. I wouldn’t worry to much about warning him, its his choice. He could have got more than fair price as is but wants to chase the last dollar. He should know fair market value as seller. Might be a reason hes no longer farming. Some people are their own worst enemy.

    SMV Mounts. Custom and purchased

    Drives me nuts seeing SMVs used to mark mailboxes and trees. They just changed the rules for SMVs allowing up to 40mph for new higher road speed equipment

    Has anyone started spring work yet?

    Will be end of April here, like always. March is still winter here, no matter what calender says. Inlaws have been doing some ripping in western Ohio the past week and corn is out of ground in Texas.

    Fire extinguisher

    That is a carbon tetrachloride extinguisher, do NOT try to use it. The chemical in it is toxic and has been outlawed for years. They are cool collectors items but beware of contents
  12. Looks like a 30 series Deere 4wd to me

    International 5488 fwa chisel plowing pics

    I have lots of family in the New Lebanon/Farmersville area. I know my brother in law was out ripping the other day too.

    My First RPRU - Bringing Grandpa. Advice?

    Think they have covered everything. We plan on being there with a tractor and will have pop-up canopy if nothing else for shade. More than welcome to rest there. Doubt there will be any green Steigers there, maybe some IH Steigers but not likely green ones. Tons of green Steigers to see closer to home,lol. Yes lighninboy we have lots of articulated 4wds here in the Northeast, probably more so than many other areas. Plenty of food there and easy grounds to get around with plenty of shade. You will have a great time.
