  1. Dad’s 1256 would hang right with my 1566 pulling the same implements and use less fuel doing it. My 1206 did not have the same grunt the 1256 had.
  2. We had a 1431 NH disc one. Our D358 powered 886 would handle it okay in flat ground but it would run warm pulling it in hilly fields. We eventually put the 1086 on the discbine and put the 886 on the round baler.
  3. Bucket cylinders need rebuilt. Had the same issue with a Westendorf loader.
  4. Dad put a muffler on the 1256 in the early seventies when it was still an open station. That DT 407 was really quiet and smooth with that muffler.
  5. Nothing in this world is better than grand babies. I have never been through anything like what you have been helping your friend with but you are a good man for doing so. Enjoy the new little bundle of joy.
  6. I am glad I retired 8 years ago and no longer have to make those reports.
  7. I liked the cab on my new black stripe1566. Not as quiet as an 86 series cab but it sure was a step up from the add on cabs we had in the past. Plus the ac would freeze me out in the hottest weather.
  8. I turn 67 in a couple weeks and have a few leaks I didn't used to have plus a couple of lubrication issues, maybe I need to drink a cup of HyTran Ultra?? Does it help with exhaust issues? Asking for my wife.......
  9. What is the going average price for a factory IH ten hole suitcase weight bracket??
  10. I towed dad's new 21' 480 20 miles home from the dealership when it was brand new, in 1973, behind a 67 Chevy 3/4 ton pickup truck. That tail really wagged that dog. I was really glad when I got it home.
  11. I bought two Taurus G2C pistols a year ago when all the pandemic crap started, one for me and one for Karen. I didn't want to spend a lot of money, these were like $250 each at Cabbelas. The ammo was hard to come up with but we now have a few hundred rounds on hand. Ran a dozen rounds through mine just to see how it felt and have not fired it since, spends most of it's time on the night stand or in the console of my vehicle. https://video.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?fr=yhs-sz-001&ei=UTF-8&hsimp=yhs-001&hspart=sz&param1=72470&param2=eyJJbnN0YWxsX0RhdGUiOiIyMDIwLTAyLTI2VDE4OjI0OjQzLjAwMFoiLCJVQSI6Ik1vemlsbGEvNS4wIChXaW5kb3dzIE5UIDYuMzsgV2luNjQ7IHg2NCkgQXBwbGVXZWJLaXQvNTM3LjM2IChLSFRNTCwgbGlrZSBHZWNrbykgQ2hyb21lLzg4LjAuNDMyNC4xNTAgU2FmYXJpLzUzNy4zNiJ9&param3=20&param4=A72918&p=taurus+g2c&type=type7075600-sv7-A55043-08fe655d9bfffd8979a26d3432ac3c8aca786acc7d07b6af51fb363b82e019f4#id=1&vid=7a062f27652d63c66a91846fed9e5002&action=click
  12. Rocky Mountain Equipment "Deal Zone" used equipment lot six miles east of me in Eastern Kansas. They are Canadian based, most of this equipment on their lot has came out of Canada. Mostly red but I did see a Deere combine, a Massey combine and a couple of NH late model combines on their lot the other day, close to 30 used CIH combines from a 7088 all the way up to a 9240. They also have maybe a dozen late model CIH tractors, including late model Quad Tracs and various large Magnums.
  13. Wow sorry to hear of Randy’s passing. I didn’t realize he was gone. Randy used to call us a couple of times a year just to chat, he always had an interesting story to tell us, I would put the phone on speaker so Karen and I could both chat with him. I always liked his stories, especially the story of flying Fifi out of China Lake.
  14. Swweett!!! Reminds me so much of my dad's 1256 when it was brand new.
  15. My dad had a #45 baler in the early sixties, I was just a grade schooler but I sure remember him working on and cussing at that baler a lot.
