  1. It’s surprising how much more flexible a guy was in the younger days. That’s pretty good for a pressure plate too.
  2. Great Picts, you get a good idea how big the ice chunks are with quad sitting beside them.
  3. That’s pretty good time, only ever saw a couple apart when I worked at the dealership & they always pulled the cab off. You got to give Versatile credit, do the clutch pretty much standing behind the front diff.
  4. Awesome job, that turned out great. 👍👍👍
  5. Yes, Pincher all way east thru Lethbridge & to the Hat, you count the days wind doesn’t blow. My brother & myself went down to the Hat in late 80s to pick up truck & forklift when IH dealer closed up. We noticed dirt drifts in the motel parking lot. Never saw that before.

    1482 combine

    1682s could be ordered with self contained hydraulic systems. It’s been over 30 years since I was around them when new & I cant remember just how they were driven. A cooler sat along right hand side ahead of tire. I remember one customer at dealer where I worked had a Versy 835. Open Center hydraulics & bought the 16 with its own system. They sold a few others too. Hydraulic system ran the pick up & tractor system ran header lift & unloading auger.
  7. Sad to see that. Thanks for posting
  8. Buddy of mine had a 360 agcostar for a few years & it did well for him. Pretty sure it had the N14. Only reason it got traded was he bought bigger drill & needed more ponies. There is at least one McConnel around Drumheller.
  9. Dad had one for the 1066 when it was hooked to 914 Combine. Worked good.
  10. Cool, thanks for posting 👍👍
  11. I’m partial to the white cab as dad & grampa had a 1066 Hydro that I spent lots hours in. They looked good all dualled up like that too.👍👍
  12. That’s pretty decent, be nice tractor for sure
  13. I’m not sure how crab steer Steigers sold, I was gone from dealer time they came out. I know in this area, still a few 91,92 & 93 series around. Low houred 92 & 9370s & 80s still bring top dollar.
  14. Yes, I think SD man said in thread couple days ago about Case 4wds. They were popular in this area & even once the dealer where I worked got the Red Steiger's, they still sold quite a few 44s & 4894s before the line was discontinued. They were a good match on 14 &1682 combines, large silage cutters too. Wasn’t much competition with the 9000 series Steigers too.
  15. Ah... it’s just all that nice red paint, That would’ve been 2 pretty decent horses in 87.
  16. Ok, was goofy year up in this area too, lots still out. Good luck eh👍👍
  17. I’m guessing it’s same time frame as a 4894, so either a 9170 or 80. Looks like air cleaner sitting on the fender & they were the only ones in that series like that.
  18. Dale, is it usually this late for corn in your area, or just this year? How’s it start at that temp too?
  19. Ok,I was pretty sure it was an 1150, but thanks for confirming it👍👍
  20. That’s pretty good, couple guys in our area did same thing. Die hard green too...

    1256 on ice

    Cool pictures 👍👍
  22. Nice job, looks like you got a decent shop to work in too👍. What vintage would that girl be? I remember seeing a TD 25 at Allen Olsen auction back in mid 90s. If I’m not mistaken it had a Cummins?
  23. According to tractor data they were only built in 84 & 85. That one might have been painted. Dealership where I worked painted a 4994 same way.
