  1. Maybe. It has its place. I have done very little the past few years because of wet fall weather. It doesn’t zero good when it’s wet in my opinion. I do have some compacted areas that need addressed. Hopefully this fall I am able to do that.
  2. Heck, the hunt is half the fun! I love tractor shopping.
  3. I spend way to much time scanning the internet and FB for IH stuff. Way to much, but anyway it popped up on FB and I bought it. Really nice straight original tractor. Very tight. Totally complete. Snappy little tractor. Same 291 as a 766. Even my helpers like it!
  4. Fall 2020, so far. Long ways to go!
  5. We had a couple 715’s way back. Good cylinder bars are your friend!
  6. We rarely take the wagons on the road anymore. Just use them when we are right on top of a bin sight.
  7. I cant answer that. Our wagons have always been set up for right hand dump for as long as I can remember!
  8. This is how we normally pull wagons. 2 Kilbros 385’s at a time.
  9. I have 5 bin sites and move 4 swing away augers around in the fall filling bins. Several times a fall we will have to switch a auger side to side. Hutchinson and Westfields are both simple to do. I just unhook, drive forward and swing it to the other side and hook back up.
  10. We bought this 2366 new and took delivery of it in 2001. It is unlikely that I will ever own another combine that will be as reliable as this one. We have done a lot of work to it over the last 4000 plus hours, maintenance, not in field repairs. The unloading auger did fail last fall as we finished up. In fact we took the rotor out this fall and replaced the transition cone and auger bed. It’s back together and ready to go for another harvest. It won’t be on the farm much longer as I have grown the operation to the point it is time to move to a bigger machine but I will harvest at least
  11. I have found the white duals must have been a regional thing. MANY tractors “here” were sold with dual wheels and hubs manufactured by DMI in Goodfield IL, The same company that built tillage equipment. I assume it must have been cheaper than the IH factory equipment and they were just down the road so dealers had easy access to them when needed. So, IH duals were red, aftermarket duals were white. We had both. The tires on the 1566 are 30.5 x 32’s.
  12. Yep. Switched to the Stones last winter. Big tireS in the back, big tires in the front. That’s how I roll!
  13. All wrapped up here too. The tractors look great. If you aren’t trying to break the throttle you ain’t trying hard enough. Photo guy caught me after the last hook of 2020 as I was rolling back to the trailer. Can’t wait for 2021!
