  1. Found this pic on FB. Wondering what kind of engine is it? Said pic taken in 1915 near Amarillo, Texas.
  2. Don't know about anywhere else, but the term turnrow is used here on the high ground of Texas. That was one of the first tractor operating jobs l had when l was a kid, using a Hoeme to plow the edges of turnrows to keep the weeds down. Being so close to the Big Muddy, l don't know if you ever used a irrigation ditch and tubes.....?m
  3. Tony, l bet your sheet metal guy could do wonders on a restoration of a stripper like this one. l would've gave a my eye teeth for the 560 LP my Dad had and a stripper like this one to restore and occasionally use during cotton harvest. But the guy sold the 560 and the stripper sold at a auction. Can't really complain though cause he offer it to me but l didn't have extra cash and the stripper sold at a auction. Plus l'd have to find a cotton trailer to pull behind it....plus find a gin that still has a suction shed....now l see what you mean when you say it's a never ending thing restoring tractors....lol
  4. Tony, l'm amazed at the amount of skill that your sheet metal man has. Lot of guys can bend metal but to find one that can take on a project like yours is what l'm talking about. Guess what l'm trying to say is that a lot of them would do the work to restore an old car or truck, but not many would take on restoring a hay baler. l hope you understand what l'm trying to say.....lol
  5. l should've put more info here. This pic came from a FB group that is all Texas photos. The info they put was it was taken in Menard, Texas. (central Texas)
  6. Saw this pic on FaceBook the other day. Lots of people was wondering why the Rumely Oil Pull was hooked up to a team of mules. The answer that most folks seemed to like was it was more efficient to move those old tractors from field to field with mules or horses than it was to move them on their own power. l don't have no idea why, just wondering what ya'll think.
  7. Glad to hear she came through it OK.
  8. Around here utility companies and oilfield companies have them stacked in yards. When they buy new pickups, they take off the standard beds and mount service bodies.

    l thought it meant "Frickin" 'Ol Rusty Dodge"........??
  10. My grandpa fought in WW I. He asked his mother for permission to join the Army and she signed a paper so he could enlist. His Dad had died when grandpa was young and she let grandpa enlist basically so he could help support his younger brother and sisters. l have a picture of him on a transport ship along with about 700 other men but the quality is pretty low so l can't pick him out of the crowd.
  11. Prayers and our thoughts sent to you and your family.
  12. Anson, had a few round modules come in on the yard at Booger Creek gin. Having some problems getting the ends of the wrap to look right so l'll probably re-do it.
  13. l talked to a guy that's a serious collector of older JD's and he says he has seen a couple like this. He was told they were used for de-tasseling hybrid corn. They had some kind of platform for workers to stand on at the back. He also said there was a kit to build them but he couldn't remember the name.
  14. l've posted it quite few times here in the past about the time cotton is ready to harvest here in west Texas. My sister was kind of the coordinator for the video. At the time she worked for the PCGA (Plains Cotton Growers Association) and set up things between Dan Taylor (owner of Buster's Gin) and the video company. Dan later sold the gin and is the curator now at the Bayer Agricultural Museum in Lubbock, Texas. He has a lot of restored tractors and cotton equipment in his personal collection at his home.
  15. 45 mph is the minimum speed limit in Texas. And that includes all agricultural and oilfield equipment. Under specific situations, you can get permits to cross a interstate with farm equipment if escorted. l knew of a guy that got a ticket for impeding traffic late one afternoon when he was cutting cotton stalks in a field next to I-20 and a lot of dust was drifting across the road and a Texas DPS officer stopped him. Said the dust was causing a safety a hazard because it was slowing traffic down.
