  1. We have the same problem with them on the edge of a field next to a pasture.  I have started scattering handfuls of shelled corn on the edge hoping they will fill up on that and leave the planted corn alone.  Mixed results so far.  Your solution is more permanent!

  2. It could have ended up at Basler Aviation in Wisconsin for a turbine conversion…that is where they found “That’s all brother”, the first c47 to carry paratroopers over the English Channel before D Day.  The C47 was the military version of the DC3.  Anyway, the N number could clear up what became of the International airplane.

  3. I have a late 750 that I pull with a mx120 using a closed center adapter I got from my case new holland dealer years ago.  I did run it with a 1086 by using a Deere open center kit on the drill, but I think depth pressure in no till conditions was better with the adapter.  Will try to get a picture of the adapter later…pretty simple.

    Guys...."Groseth vs. Case/Tenneco" was a lawsuit that endured for what seemed like an eternity.

    IIRC, Case finally settled out of court with Groseth....in the mid 1990s. The lawsuit went back and forth for nearly a decade. Seems like Case settled for nearly $3 million. Its been a long time ago, so I might be off on the dollar amount.

    As for Groseth, he turned around and opened up a car dealership....I thought it was a Chevrolet dealership at one time.


    Groseth did become a gm dealership selling Chevrolet, Buick and Cadillac for several years.  The location of his dealership is now a strip mall.  Marks machinery, the Case dealer that was awarded the caseih franchise just sent us a letter this past week announcing a merger with the Titan machinery group.  

  5. We bought one new in 2013.  Has around 130,000 miles on it now.  Ours is the XLT model with 3.5 engine and six speed.  Averages 22-23 mpg. Probably the most comfortable car I have ever owned with infinitely adjustable driving positions and room to haul seven if you want to utilize the third seat.  You can fold the second row of seats down too for even more cargo area.   It has been trouble free so far too and is only on the third set of tires.  We really like ours!  Good luck.

  6. I am pretty sure the pickup can handle the weight, but the size of the wheel/tire combination means that they would have to lean on or rest on the sides of the box and could damage them.  Do you have a friend or neighbor who has a flatbed trailer you could borrow?  That would be the safest way to transport them.  Good luck.

  7. I am sorry for your loss Sandhiller.  This is a sad coincidence…..my border collie Harvey passed the same day as Gus and he was born 31 March 2009.  The only fault that dogs have is that they don’t live long enough.647B52B1-A529-4B27-B8BB-0740ECB39C92.thumb.jpeg.58fb24f5cb597ad61417785b0ce2d8b3.jpeg

  8. I am the second owner of a 59 diesel model I bought in 1972.  For years it was the planting/feed grinding/cultivating general go to do anything tractor.  We gave it an overhaul in 1976 when the head proved to be cracked and leaking coolant into number three.  Put a new cylinder head on it.  It still gets used on the grain auger at harvest and other general tasks.  Maybe we were just lucky, but this tractor will start down into the single digits and run for a week on a tank of fuel.

    I have no complaints.

    Our loader tractor of the bygone era.

    My Dad had this “bridge” style farmhand loader on his F20 back in the 50’s.  They were very popular in the upper Midwest and were king for bucking and stacking loose hay.  In the wintertime, the grapple attachment worked great for feeding hay and silage and moving snow.  The F20 always started on the second or third impulse click!  Almost every farm in our area had a “Farmhand”!

  10. I had one.  Good disk.  They do have a lot of linkage in their lift mechanism that gets worn over time.  Personally I would prefer a 496 that uses self phasing cylinders to level and lift….much simpler.  Good luck.

  11. As you can see, pristine examples are big bucks.  There was a 4 door Galaxie version on an auction near here within the last year.  They still said fairlane 500 on the trunk for some reason.  Non runner, stored inside, 292 and two speed auto and you could tell the mice had been inside and went a little over $3000 if I remember right.  Good luck on your search.
