  1. Another New Project, TDC 5 Series B Skidder, with TA
  2. Its been a good Summer, worked on several building projects on the Farm, cut and baled a good hay crop for the neighbour most of July and part of August. Just dragged home more projects Picked up 674, needs some TLC, but very solid low hour unit
  3. Ruby Red

    Are these rare?

    1988, S1900 original paint, never winter driven, bought new by a local Silo Builder. Just turned 453,000 kms, have owned it since 2001 (18 years). Powered by the DT466, 210 HP with Eaton 5+2 trans, very nice driving truck Carl
  4. We have this 1987, 2375 got under 82,000 miles, too nice to part out. May consider selling it to a good home - has couple little rust spots. Carl
  5. And look who showed up from the city life to live the farm life for several weeks of holidays, our granddaughter Jenna's border collie, Kevin, he doesn't mind the cows, but hasn't figured out the chickens yet
  6. And welcome to the girls, Reddy and Blacky and again clean quarters
  7. Manual labour, but much easier than cleaning out
  8. Getting our new addition 385 tuned up, repairing and little problems will make him look new again, backing the 100 barge box of loose hay from cleaning up part of the hay left, to bed the cows
  9. Is very maneuverable in small areas, have the safety guard off for minor maintenance, and want to mount the choke, ign. and throttle up in to safety guard, will be much easier to operate
  10. Cleaning out the Cow pen with our new to us 1816, the 42" bucket fits nice through a 44" door way
  11. Sympathy to the Thorburn Family, George will be sadly missed on Red Power Forum, Always enjoyed a visit with George at our tractor days, was always up on IH and Case IH, very knowlegable on anything in life, spent many hours with him during our many years of selling memorabilia for Chapter 20. Sad how such a sickness can eat up a strong healthy man as he was the last time we met, Carl and Mary Ellen Ruby
  12. The basic loader is of 1/8 formed materials, the mounting brackets are 1/4" and some parts of 5/16. The boom arms are formed lefts and rights and welded together. All cylinder and bucket piviots are bushings with grease nipples. There's no extra hydraulic pump, we run the hyd off the hydro charge pump, which is approx. 800 psi. Will lift bucket full of snow, and light material, gravel or rocks 1/2 full, as for steering and traction, its like any thing with out power steering, or no rear ballast, its a boy and we don't ask it to do a man's work. Carl
  13. Dual dash valve for loader operation, works out well on left side, with hydro on right
