My 5488's Famous!!!

Recommended Posts

Last summer I got an email from HyCapacity looking for tractor  photos for the 2020 calendar. I sent some of my tractors, 706, 1066, 1206, 5288 and 5488. I got a calendar in the mail Saturday and my 5488 is in there for April!😛 The picture was taken when I got the tractor 3 years ago and I'm sure it hasn't been that clean since.🤔 I just got it back from a body shop that buffed the paint and I had a new decal set I got from Pete 1468 put on it.

Well it did come out of North Dakota, land of 10000 lakes. No wait, that's Minnesota! 🤣

The 826 gold demo on July belongs to a good friend of mine. We hauled it out to the Roundup in Bloomsburg last June.  He loaded it up at Todd's and we left the next day for PA.

Yup, Williston. The previous owner used it for a yard tractor running auger etc. It has a dual pto in it. The rest of their tractors were 4 wheel drives and quad tracs I guess.

Congratulations! That is a nice tractor and the others are nice too!! I was lucky enough they picked my two gold demos and they are this month on the Hy-Capacity calendar for 2019. It’s pretty cool when they pick you isn’t it!!!

You have some nice tractors there. Show quality I'm sure. Mine is a field  tractor so I'm surprised it's in there.
