  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. Yep. Switched to the Stones last winter. Big tireS in the back, big tires in the front. That’s how I roll!
  4. 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!
  5. A picture of my right had man as a pup back in April of 2008!
  6. In the photo album of my iPad I have 10,547 pictures. You would love the slide show but it would take awhile! That’s a bunch of farm pics of mostly red iron!
  7. I think that boy loves all tractors but his grandpa’s are green!
  8. I was working on grading a lane Friday afternoon when I saw my neighbor. He had his grandson with him and was looking my ride over pretty close. I told them I was going to leave the tractor on the lane and come back in the morning. I got this pic the next morning before I got back over there. Bet he is still telling grandpa a 1066 would look nice in the shed!
  9. I had a 3950 and I ran it on 1066’s and tractors with closed center both. There was a valve that had to be adjusted.
  10. When history looks back the one thing the Trump presidency maybe be remembered for is all of the conservative judges he has appointed to the federal justice system not to mention the Supreme Court. In the big picture these court appointments are huge and have lasting impact on our nation. If you are a conservative minded person you will be happy that Trump has paved a road that will be bumpy for many left wing agendas for decades to come.
  11. That’s me! Since it was a binder it deserved a good truck number.
  12. Here ya go. Nothing fancy. 2012. 475hp. 10 speed. Full delete. 300,000 miles. Should be a dandy farm truck.
  13. Truck that is! Might as well be a Binder!
  14. 10 shank 6000 conser till is a good load for a decent 1066 “here”.
  15. My advice is before you do anything else, investigate your brake problem. Could be minor, may not be. Those brakes are great until they aren’t.
  16. Right out of college in about 1990 I worked at the local IH dealer and plain as day I can remember a whole box of those black and yellow M&W turbo filters. Place closed up several years ago and they probably got pitched.
  17. We are a couple hours se of all the wind damage from that storm. It rolled thru here and was scary looking but nothing to cause problems for us like in IA. The pull today was a RWYB 12,000lbs class. 3 big block Deere’s in it and I was the only non sanctioned tractor. I didn’t place very well but I snuck past some of those guys and ended up 11ft back of 2nd so I felt ok about it. Tractor ran good. If you want to watch it jump on FB and hunt up the Back Roads Pulling team the entire class video is on there.
  18. Thanks guys! Put a coat of wax on and loaded up for a pull tomorrow. Gonna be tough one but me and ole Smoke Rings will give it all we got!
  19. Hasn’t been a farm sell that low of a price for awhile. Still 10K and up!
  20. Everything I know about any kind of farming other than corn, soybeans and cattle outside of central IL I owe to people like Tony who take time to share how things work. So thanks to all of you who Take time to post pics. It is always appreciated!!!!!!!
  21. Yesterday the pull wrapped up and we all stood around the trailers another two hours telling stories. Nobody wanted it to be over. We have so much fun it’s probably against the law!
  22. Been to several pulls in the last few weeks. It’s nice to be out and about with friends having fun!
