    New Toy

    That old Yazoo is well built, for no more than I have to mow it will probably be the last mower I ever need. I have a Cub Cadet tractor type mower also but it has been semi retired to yard tractor duty, I don't mow with it anymore, the Yazoo is so much faster.

    New Toy

    This was dad's Yazoo mower, he bought it new in the early 90's. 60 inch cut with a 20 hp liquid cooled Kawasaki 2 cylinder engine, hydrostat transmission. I bought it from his estate when he passed, cleaned it up and fixed all the little stuff that needed fixed. It is great for mowing under trees but you can sure get a wild ride sitting way back at the end of that machine.
  3. Yes you could do that but would still have a no semi restriction.
  4. In Kansas you can get a class A with a pickup and trailer as long as the combined GVW is over 26K. If it is an automatic pickup you will have a no air brake restriction, no manual transmission restriction and no semi (tractor trailer) restriction. You can bring in a class B truck as long as it is over 26K and remove your no air brake and no manual restrictions if that B truck is a manual. We use to call that "coming in the back door" to get a CDL and used to see a lot of drivers go that route and it was perfectly legal when I resigned. However you will have to bring in a semi tractor that has a fifth wheel and a trailer to lift the no semi restriction. All states have their own little twists on the CDL licensing, even though it is supposed to federally regulated. Starting in Kansas last year, if you bring in a hydraulic brake vehicle and do not do the hydraulic brake check correctly during the CDL exam, it is an automatic fail, just like the air brake check will fail you if not performed correctly. Anyone has any CDL questions drop me a pm, I will be happy to help out if I can.
  5. You can get your manual restriction lifted by using any truck over 26001 GVW with a manual transmission, you will only have to do a pre trip and a drive, no learner permit required. I was a CDL examiner for the state of Kansas for 5 years. Quit a couple of months ago due to a bad knee.
  6. Great photos Rob! Wonder why there is no headlight on the 1206? Didn't see very many at all with factory ac. I sure remember when the 06's came out, I was in grade school, thought they were so awesome.

    1086 question

    Tri stripes had the metric front end bolster.
  8. I have a black one, originally bought from a Deere dealership, it has the Leaping Goat logo. Same as the IH version only difference was color and decals. Dad bought this one new in the late sixties for his Big A floater, the IH dealership didn't have one in stock when he wanted one so he went down the street and bought one from the green guys. It still has the original AM radio and it still works, guess it is because it was inside a cab all those years and was never out in the elements.
  9. Our 2005 Explorer has well over 200,000 miles on it, we purchased it new. It has had brakes done twice, ac compressor replaced, blend door actuators replaced a couple of times, suspension rebuild once and a couple of oil leaks fixed over the years which I consider to be expected maintenance with that many miles. No drive train component failures. Only engine issues have been oil leaks. Never left the wife or I stranded like some other vehicles in the past. It has always sat inside at night. I took this photo a couple of weeks ago, it has been demoted to my daily driver, she drives the Traverse.

    Hitch hikers

    I never have picked anyone up unless it was someone I knew and knew well.
  11. Today is dad's birthday, he would have been 85. Here is a photo of him doing what he loved best. Hopefully Jesus is taking care of all his hay equipment repairs now. That used to be my after hours job during haying season, LOL.

    Yar cab

    Dad had Eagle Air added to the Exel cab on his 1256 in the mid seventies. The evaporator fit neatly into the factory Exel overhead console. The compressor mounted on the right side of the tractor is why it is not visible in this photo. That AC worked great.
  13. This has been a very interesting thread, could this one be pinned like the Axial Flow thread and the "Learing a lot but want more info" threads on the General IH page??
  14. I agree 100% with that. I can get into either one of our SUV's much easier than I can get into my elderly mother's 2004 Accura car. And mom can get into our SUV's easier than she can get into her car also.
  15. That is what I didn't like about my 504, was the ultra slow reverse and using the front end loader.
