  1. I see a few guys that say they hate foot control, I’m the opposite, grew up on a NH 553, and NH L785, I now own a NH L785.  I’m so used to my feet doing the lifting and tilting that I get lost with hand controls.  It takes me a few days to get used to pilot controls! I’m the odd one out, I’ll take foot controls any day!

    My old massage therapist would constantly mention sitting on that lopsided inch isn't doing your hips any favors 

    And lower back! When I got my back fixed, that was the first question he had for me, did I sit on my wallet? Nope!

    3-5 inches at most, bu I still want rain

    I’m hoping it’s going to slide south!! They keep upping our totals, and that usually means we won’t get much, and I’m fine with that!! Currently they are saying 16-18 now! 🤢

    We need rain in central MN too but, I will have to settle for snow

    The snow is not here yet, and as much as they are hyping it up, it could be a bust?! What’s predicted for your area? I’m now seeing 12-16 in my area east of St. Cloud.   I prefer rain at this point!!

    Not questioning it, just saying that’s something I had never heard before about the RTV. I feel like the blue stuff has had a picture of a water pump on the packaging for my entire  life. 

    That makes 2 of us!!

    He finally scratched his 1206 itch! Says he has 2 consecutive serial number 1206's and a 1456 gold demonstrator to play with. (They are on a different farm 20 miles away). After he met me, he decided the 856 needed a new home.

    Now that is a great way to scratch an itch!!! I’d love to find a consecutive serial number to any of my tractors, and am still watching and waiting for a 1026 or 1456 goldie!! 

  7. Congratulations Aaron!!! I know the feeling! I got the 856 I grew up on back a few years ago too, unfortunately mine was in need of major repairs.  I put a good used front axle under it, radiator re cored and repaired, new water pump, thermostat, and hoses.  Now I need to find the time for a TA, and MCV OH, and possibly a rear end OH.  It’s far from perfect, but some day it will be closer!
     

    Apparently the 1206 was the tractor that everyone wanted, my 856 also has the radiator support painted white, and rear cast wheels.  IMG_1879_Original.thumb.jpeg.9d4909b7c1ef6a5bc3bd1c1cb17ac2b8.jpeg

    Value it higher than if you were buying their 2/ 3 and
    offer to wait till after tillage season.   Awkward either way 

    I guess if I was put in that situation, I’d make them pay me before they could use it, they wreck it, now his third just dropped in price! Make em pay out before use, or sell it, and make them go buy their own before they need a tractor.

    Cool!

     

    I just cant imagine putting that few hours on a tractor in 40+ years

    We have a 1066 that we picked up back in 2004 I believe, had 1594 hours on it, and today it has 1810 if I remember correctly?! It was a lemon, first owner had to overhaul the rear end at 300 hours due to the ring gear nuts not being torqued from factory, and at 700 hours, it received a factory IH short block due to electrolysis.  Second owner used it a little hard, never saw a shed from day 1, and we are the 3rd owners.  All hours and repairs were verified by the original dealer.  It doesn’t look like a low hour tractor, but it is!IMG_2619.thumb.jpeg.5760e8be1cc542dd0fbb3ca06d53a9b7.jpeg

    Air filter was still fairly clean in 04-05 when we bought it, and in 2021 when I did a full service, these were the hours from 1990!

     

    So things happen, things don’t get used much, not very often are these found with low hours anymore, but there’s still some hiding out there!! Definitely a cool story about the hydro 100, and really happy to hear that it will go back home to the original owners son!!

  10. I’ve been in situations like that! Think you can trust the forecast, and radar, and get shut down long before the predicted weather hits! Glad you had the Peterbilt Inn and Suites, where the bed is comfortable but the continental breakfast is terrible!! Would have been a rough night in a day cab!! 
     

    If the salt and brine usage is like MN, in other snow states, I wouldn’t be to happy if I was the owner of that 1256!! To nice of a tractor to be hauled in the winter months!!

    Mine was delivered to Central Plains Diesel in Le Mars Iowa under recommendations from members here.

    Blaylock turbos in KS was also willing to do it and quoted me roughly 1/3 the price of CPD but I couldn't get any feedback on the quality of their services.

    @F-301066460puller Your dad could always gift me that 12 and write it off as a loss. I'd be willing to do that for him.🐒

    I built a reusable box for sending the Solar out. A neighbor has two that will most likely be getting sent out as soon as mine comes back.

    Thank you! I’ll have to contact them! Did they quote you prices for the rebuild?

    I just sent mine in for rebuilding.

     

    Where did you send it? I have one in my possession for a friend that needs a rebuild 

  13. I’m a Duluth trading long sleeve, long tail T with jeans in the winter, cargo shorts, and t shirts in the summer, I’m not looking to be professional, I’m looking to be comfortable.
