  1. I’ll probably be the only one to suggest a massy Ferguson rake. I’ve had a fella which is now a massy, twin rotor for going on 20 years and it’s been a really good rake and has covered a tremendous amount of ground with very few breakdowns. It still has most of the original teeth still on it. Grease it ever day and it just goes. It will be the clean sweep series.
  2. That really sucks, hate fire. At least no one was hurt and building didn’t go up with it. Just my experience with rebuilding a burned 1086, it becomes a money pit. I’m sure most of the tractor other then the cab and sheet metal can be salvaged. That needs to be done sooner then later, burned metal rusted worst it seems as when it’s hot water is being applied. I won’t be scared of the engine and transmission and rearend. Its still not done, ran into a bunch of hydraulic issues that I just haven’t gotten time to figure out yet. The cab is mostly buttoned up but there’s a ton of work to fixing a burned tractor. This one sat for ten years before I fixed it so that wasn’t good either.
  3. Probably ipto/pressure plate stripped. That’s a good place to start anyways.
  4. Congratulations, Bill! That is something to be proud of for sure!
  5. Drop a 3406B in it…they have a better governor, much faster response.
  6. Looks like big house cat, you won’t catch it again is my guess.
  7. My favorite pocket tool is this leatherman crunch, has been in my pocket for quite a few years. I have broken 3-4 of them and they just give me a new one! It is a awesome little tool!
  8. Could always plug and screw it down. Probably take a while but then you don’t need a jointer or router table. Could use different species of wood for plugs. Seen it done some and was pretty nifty looking.
  9. I have a 1490 4wd loader tractor. It’s a tough tractor. Mine is the 4 speed manual range with three spreed manual transmission, it’s a decent tractor. Haven’t had many issues with it other then the park brake, it leaves a bit to be desired. Pto clutch can’t be left disengaged for prolonged time without damaging engine thrust bearings. I feel they are decent simple tractors.
  10. Happy birthday Seth! Glad you got the snow!
  11. I will be praying for your family, God is great and will be with you all through this. He is the great comforter.
  12. What a brave father, will be praying for him and all your family.
  13. Couldn’t afford either…
