    Few random pics

    Cool loader bitty. I know where this one resides locally at a business. They still use it from time to time and it gets stored inside year around. I personally haven't seen it in a few years but a good friend works where it is and sent me these pics about 2 months or so ago.

    Farmall H with loader lifting ability

    We had a 33 on our m for years and it destroyed the leader trying to push snow with the big snow bucket. I don't know the lifting capacity of them but I always thought that the 30 and 31 were pretty hefty built and could take some abuse.

    It's ------SHOW TIME

    Good to know it was not the last and doesn't sound like it will be for quite a long time. I will definately be there if I can make it.

    It's ------SHOW TIME

    I was told that last year was the end of this. Did I get misinformation or did they decide to do it again? I have never made it to it but plan to do so this year. Heck it's only 30 miles from my house. If my R100 wasn't in pieces I would love to take it.

    zero turn filter?

    I wouldn't use one commercially but you can get into a Hustler Raptor SD with a Hydro Gear rear that has a serviceable oil filter starting at 3800 or a new Ferris 400S for around 4300. They both use the ZT2800 zero turn rear.

    Are we this dumb these days

    I've seen that before too and it was the first thing I thought of as well.

    Preferred JD lawn tractor model #

    Of the 3XX series the 318 was by far and away the most popular. Mom and dad have an 87 model that is still going strong. They repowered it a few years ago with a 23hp Vanguard but the tractor itself is still chugging away. I have an aunt with a 420 that her and my uncle bought right after mom and ad got the 318 and her's is still going strong too after 30 years. I agree the 4xx series were better though and much more desirable. 80's Cub Cadet that was preferred was the 782 and then it's predecessor's. Many of the Super Garden tractor cubs are sought after. 982,1572,1772,2082, etc....

    How did I ever live without one?

    Dad got rid of a Sportsman 500 Quad last year and bought a new Ranger 570. Might be the small model but man that thing will work its tail off one minute and then scream down the road at 50 mph the next. Couldn't be without it now. I've already used it to move my H and M around when I got them from my pap.

    ex mark mowers?

    We have an IS1500 Ferris at work and I hate it for hillsides. It won't stick worth a darn! I think it's too front heavy personally and the suspension really doesn't seem to help that much in my opinion. My buddy that mow's commercially has a Hustler X one with a VX4 deck. That thing cuts nice at high speed and I can make it stick with ease to some pretty steep hills where the upper front wheel is dancing off the ground. If I was buying for myself commercially it would either be a new Hustler Super Z or I would look at a Scag.

    Wrong color question.

    My dad had a 290 and so did my pap when I was a kid. Seen a few of them since then and i can't say I personally have never seen one with the checkrow equipment still on it. Not sure it's all there but it might be something a JD collector would want. Cannot help with value but you always start high and go lower or take offers. I think old implements are cool and even though they are not easy to take to shows I find them nice to look at. I know you can't save them all, but they are'nt making them anymore and once they're gone they're gone.

    Flail mower advice

    I work with a gentleman that they still use and MC rotary scythe on their farm to cut hay. It was bought new with their 350 from a local dealer. Mathews Company still makes just about every part for that unit all these years later. I think it's slower than molasses to use in the field but it does a decent job. Same people also have an MC direct cut flail chopper and that is the same way. Many of the parts for it are still available through Matthews Company.

    Safemark tires any good for pulling?

    He did a rattle can job on it when I worked on the engine for him. It is in a shed behind another one at the moment so I only snapped a shot of the wheel an tire today but when I get to that farm again I will have him get it out and take a picture of the whole tractor. It's not bad for a rattle can job. He was only interested in preserving the tractor for now and will maybe tear it apart in a few years if funds permit to do a nicer professional job.

    Hey Bitty, those are the exact tires and the tractor they were on that Tyler is talking about. I know where they are even though it's not on our farm.

    I bet for the right price you could probably get them back. LOL!
