    That would be pretty rare. A lot of the “FS” ear flap hats were K Brand also. How about one from “the great pretzel”?  It’s never been out of the house. 




      Now that is classic!  They don’t make those anymore!  I had one from the local CO-OP I wore for years when it got cold and I had chores to do.

    Looks like it is about ready for some new shins. I have a 6-16 710, one of the best  plows ever made I think. When we first got it we pulled it with a 1468, then a 4 wheel drive Case, the last time it was used it had a 7140 in front of it, that was the best combination.

      As I backed it in the shed today I thought to myself, dang, this thing needs shins!

    Nice IH combo, I’m looking for a IH tractor about the size of a 766 wish I could afford one or if one was close to me.

    But the hunt is fun. 

      Heck, the hunt is half the fun!   I love tractor shopping.

    Bill what is the story on the 666 gas?  I wouldn't mind owning a 666 or 686.

      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!

    I have spent the last 2 weeks hauling seed corn to Fremont Iowa. I HATE topping a hill only to see a pair of gravity wagons at the bottom. I understand why you use them, and they are probably safer than the old IH190s with 400 bushel. 
    The other day I was following a wagon through Hedrick, and a car goes around it. The guy was trying to make a left hand turn and did have his signal on on his tractor, but nothing on the left side of the wagon. Really scary part was that they were moving a big auger in front of the wagon. Pulled by another front wheel assist JD. The car had to swerve around it to. 
    Have a safe and prosperous harvest!!

      We rarely take the wagons on the road anymore.  Just use them when we are right on top of a bin sight.

    Looks good! I noticed over the years you have all yours set as right hand unload. Almost never see that. Any particular reason for the right hand unload, just curious?

      I cant answer that.  Our wagons have always been set up for right hand dump for as long as I can remember!  

  7.  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.
