What did you do with your Red tractor today?
ny bill o replied to DT Fan's topic in General ChatThursday. I was going to bale with the 826 hydro, but the valve core had other ideas. Waiting on the tire guy to put in a new tube. So Skippy, the gas 656 hydro scoop tractor, lost the scoop and did an admirable job of running the baler wide open. 3 wagon loads. Now the field can get plowed for corn with the 3588.
Tractor of the week. Week 21: Farmall B
ny bill o replied to nepoweshiekfarmalls's topic in General ChatMy good BN (1945 model) was bought at a consignment auction, already looking good. I added the second seat, and made a step for each side so it is easier getting on. Mostly just a parade and show tractor, though it did make a round with a 1 bottom plow at Plow Day this year. I have another BN that is unrestored, and a 3rd BN that I bought for parts prior to getting the nice one.
I have 10 moldboard plows and I hate moldboard plowing.

Who needs rain?
ny bill o replied to Missouri Mule's topic in General Chatover 3" of rain (mostly) ending Sunday night/Monday morning. The river is over its banks onto the lower flats. Enough rain for awhile! The rest of this week looks showery.
New Holland super 717 forage harvester Weight and Dimensions?
ny bill o replied to Farmall Doctor's topic in General ChatDad ran a Super 717 and 2 row corn head with an 806. Only problem was one employee who started the PTO like a Ford would start it's PTO- its ON or its OFF. Took out the main gearbox once.
Maple Hill Farm 2023 Crop Season
ny bill o replied to nepoweshiekfarmalls's topic in General ChatI had not used the 826 in the field before and it impressed me. The 358 was smooth and powerful and sounded great under load. The hydro is stout and handled the disk well, even up a steep hill fixing washouts along the waterways. I am now a believer that a hydro can easily handle appropriate fieldwork! Agree! Dad bought a new 826 hydro in 1971, the year I graduated from Cornell. We had a 550 plow that had been pulled behind the 806, and the 826 got the plow, and the 806 got moved to applying Sutan, pulling a 12' Allis disk with a mounted 125 gallon spray tank and mounted spray nozzles, and followed by a 12' JD drag to apply and incorporate the Sutan. I plowed with the 826 and 5 bottom plow for the next 8 years with no hydro problems at all. Of course, the 826 was used for haying, chopping, manure spreading, everything we could think of, too.
RPM May/June 2023 issue
ny bill o replied to 766 Man's topic in General ChatI was amazed that mine was in yesterday's mail. Usually, it arrives a week after you guys start talking about getting your issue. One thing I noticed right off was the story by 560 Dennis about his family's Farmall C. Nice job, and lots of pictures! Also enjoyed the "old time" (1920s) Peek of the Past pictures, especially the 1928 rolloff trailer for delivering Regulars
plow day fun
ny bill o posted a topic in General ChatWe had probably the biggest turnout for a plow day here, ever, last Saturday. Everything from my 3588/6 bottom700 plow to a Cub Cadet that handled 3 bottoms to a JD M and my BN with 1 bottom plows. Even a Cockshutt 570 Super. 16 or 17 total tractors, usually around 12 in the field at once. The usual few breakdowns, lots of visiting, and a great (although late- store lost our pizza order) lunch break. Everyone got machinery loaded and I got my tractors under cover before the sky let loose with an inch of rain around 6pm. my fat finger in the way The R in the back broke it's crankshaft at plow day about 8 or 10 years ago. nice 300 utility once across the field with my late friend Steve's H
