Yep! The one in Wytheville was Modern Farm Equipment. He sold out when they merged with case. I don't remember it but I was at the auction sale with my dad. I was almost 1 year old. I live about 15 miles from Wytheville.
A buddy of mine has recently bought a 1486. I think it is a 81 model. He plans to pull a 3970 John Deere chopper with it. Will leaving one of the hydraulic valves on to run the spout and deflector hurt the tractor?
