    Vermont plate?

    right through the old gas tank....
  2. funny story about the 1468 I was interested in. The auctioneer asked "who has $7000?" as his opening salvo. I was already ready to go to $8000, so I was almost ready to "start the rollback", so to speak. Apparently someone else also had his own truck running.. The auction crew stood there with their mouths open, as the bidding went past $9k. I quit at $9100, and the other bidder got the tractor for $9200.
  3. here are the 2 choppers I am using. The Fox opens the fields 3 rows at a time, and the Fargo wagon fits through the 3 rows. Then chop with the NH. The Richardton wagon holds more and dumps higher, but needs 4 rows to avoid running down corn. This was this morning's view in today's field. first trip thru after the Fox cut the road. Front And rear We have been relatively lucky with the rain most of the summer. Even after watching solid lines of rain coming through, only to split and miss us, or just disappear, we got enough moisture just as it was getting desperate. I'm chopping about 300 tons for a neighbor who milks about 50 cows. The Fox is also the chopper that gnawed on my shin in 2016. I'm lucky to still be here, after it cut the artery and meat in my leg. So be careful out there!
  4. many moons ago, I thought it would be nice to add a 1468 to the herd. There was one for sale relatively close by. Inquiries on this board as to the desirability of one were generally unanimous- junk the V8 and put a 466 in, and you will have a tractor! So someone took that advice, though there may be other reasons for that particular one.
  5. X2. I wanted to stop there during the trip for the June RPRU. We know how that turned out. I would love to see more pictures. I'll never see it in person.
  6. happy birthday, you guys. Bill, glad to hear of the improvement in your wife.
  7. Your duals would probably make that green one pull better. as opposed to my 1466 that has a yellow rim on the one side. JD guy asked me if it worked better that way. I told him, that's the side that always spins.....
  8. Troy, I have 10 bolt yellow duals that fit right onto the 5288- no problem at all. fwiw.
  9. I usually can find a divot in a parking lot, or a low spot, or a small rise like the pic with the BN, to put the trailer tires in, so the deck doesn't have to be so steep. Sometimes, draft a friend to run the tilt control, so when I get the tractor on the deck, friend can lower the deck to a more reasonable level. I could have gotten a remote control for the hyd pump, but it would have cost extra. When I loaded the Regular, it was in a flat field and the tractor didn't run. That one was winched on with a HF inexpensive winch (you can see it in the picture), and the deck was lowered after the back wheels were on the deck, so it dragged easier.
  10. Chances are, I saw those tractors at Syracuse. The state fairgrounds had national pulls in the early/mid 80s, and several of us from the area drove up to watch. Good times.
  11. this is my 1086, with the factory ROPS. I added the front window kit from a 186.
  12. Hey now, Tony is a big guy- it would take him a lot less time than say a 98#-when-wet man.
  13. or a tree stump. something solid, for sure.
