  1. I ran a 1760 wing fold, ground driven, flex, vacuum planter for 15 years. Zero complaints or regrets. Pulled easy. Was durable. Simple. Some of those years I was planting 2000 acres a year. When I sold it you would have been hard pressed to tell it had done more than a few thousand acres.
  2. Like many others, I am NRA member. That doesn’t mean I don’t have reservations but they do fight our fight.
  3. Moor Mans was a feed supplier for farmers. There were many but in our area Moor Mans was one of the most popular. Kent, Super Sweet, and FS also had a big presence here. Back in the day those salesman were busy guys.
  4. Remember a thread awhile back that talked about the ear flap hats? I mentioned I would sure like to find a old school Moormans hat like everyone had back in the day. Well ole Sledge fixed me up! I will put the Moormans one one my book cabinet in the office but I am gonna wear the Pioneer one when it gets cold! Thanks sledgehammer. Santa won’t forget you either!,
  5. I am a full time farmer. Grew up here on the home farm. My great great grandad bought this one in 1894. After college I did 4 years as the junior parts guy in the local CIH dealership. Great experience! Learned so much. Raised hogs till high school. Cattle went couple years ago. Just a gentleman grain farmer now. Before my time this was a dairy.
  6. Hey! I got a question and you can answer it! I got a wild hair to put a YAR cab on a 1566 I bought. It occurred to me today that the mounting for a 1066 is narrower and won’t fit on the 1566 I want to put it on. Can you take a look and snap a picture of the mounts on that 15 for me Mike?
  7. I havent held many guns that have a better feel for me than a 1911. Little much for carry. I tried a handful of smaller guns and settled on a Glock 43. 3 years later it’s still the one. Nice little gun. Wouldn’t want to carry it off to war, but for cc, it is a well rounded choice.
  8. This is how we generally did it back in the day. 2 weights on the inside, 3 weights on the outside and full of fluid. Most of mine just have a couple weights on the outside now.

    Ih 80

    Good blower. I haven’t hooked mine up yet. I will wait for a impending snowfall of some significance.
  10. Well you don’t have to ask me twice! Let’s see if I can find some good ones.
  11. 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.
  12. I would love to have a brand new K Brand MoorMans feed hat with the ear flaps!
  13. I recall hauling into the local elevator in the 80’s and the had a rolling overhead beam hoist. The would raise wagons, pickup, trucks whatever they needed too.
  14. 5 of us. Me, a 1206, 4320,4020 and a d-17.
  15. As I backed it in the shed today I thought to myself, dang, this thing needs shins!
  16. I did and clicker has some jack wagon comment!
  17. Had a little plow day last weekend. Fired up my 1066 and got my 710 5-16 out of the shed and had a blast. Amazing weather and the ground worked great. Wonderful day with friends!
  18. 735 was hydraulic adjustable width of cut on the go. 730 was manually adjustable.
  19. I knew I saw a place and for the life of me I was drawing a blank but you got it!
