  1. Like the crawler picture. My grandpa farmed with a TD 14 that he bought in 1947. Traded it off for a TD 14A in 53' which we still own.

    Nice COE

    That is so ugly I wouldn't mind having one. Did they literally take a Loadstar cab and weld it to the bottom of a regular cab over body?

    Tractors that weren’t made but should have been.

    Better add A3, A4, B1, and B3 too. Those are some of the gears we used.

    One of the 2 cylinder jokes around here was the 8X0 series was JD's first 6 cylinder tractor. Catch is only two of them counted.

    That guy is well known in the JD world. He had this challenge were he tries to farm with nothing but 2 cylinders. That tractor is not the first one he made but probaby the nicest. He also had a 720 paired with a D and then an 820 paired with a D. My opinion is he cheated soon as he started putting tractors together.

    This was somewhat reality around here. Both my great uncle and landlord farmed with tandem WD-9s. They weren't the only ones either. Not sure but it almost looks like a different engine in that tractor. Doesn't look like a 4 cylinder.

    Farmall super A with cracked block, What's it worth?

    I’d say about half of what he wants. A thousand is what I paid for a running Super AV with cultivators. It’s not like Super As are hard to find. For a thousand dollars the block shouldn’t be cracked.

    DEF

    That's so true. Our combines each only take one jug a day. Our 9520 takes one jug a day. The 9570 takes 3 jugs a day. I can go a week on the sprayer or floater on one tank fill of DEF. The loader tractors only need a refill once or twice during the summer. Also, everybody uses SCR on the bigger engines. But some still use EGR besides JD. I hear you on the EGR. I'm not a fan of it either. But until I actually loose an engine over it or until EGR engines in my area start going down (and they haven't) I'm not worrying about it. Plus Cummins on some models, AGCO, and Kubota also use EGR. Even Fendt supposedly the best of the best uses EGR. Tier 5 engines are coming too and I wonder what SCR only guys are going to do. Cummins and JD have plans for them but I haven't heard about anybody else. Also I can't help but wonder if a reason why truck diesel engines with EGR failed so miserable is because guys letting them idle all the time.

    DEF

    Almost everything we have now used DEF. We buy our DEF by the tote and keep it in a heated shop. We use 2 1/2 jugs to transfer to the machinery. We have never had a problem with any of our machinery when it comes to DEF.

    In my area you can’t walk more then mile down any road without running into a border patrol.

    You have some really light soil. It took our TD 14A to pull those size of implements on our farm. Also, the 560/660 problems only occurred during the first year. After that they should have been fine.

    Honestly neither transmission sounds appealing to me in that kind of job. That's why when we had to back fill our pivot pipeline trench I used our Steiger with the Allison. No clutching and no herky jerkyness

    Our 8960 had the 12 speed powershift and nobody liked it because you had to start in 1st every time you stopped and they were jerky. The next tractor (9400) had the 24 speed and all three of us preferred it over the powershift until Deere came with their own 18 speed.

    I thought M&W was the answer to that.

    The scraper tractor dale is referring to was the 760A. It was a 5020 with a powershift modified for a scraper. https://www.johnnypopper.com/weirddeere/NG/The_JD760.html
