Pair of one owner 1468’s


Recommended Posts

What's up with the water tank on the front weights? Looks like the ones we had mounted on anhydrous tanks but its hanging pretty low

Wash your hands. I was cheap always had a cleaned out roundup jug with water in it to rinse off hands. Maybe I should join a class action suit?

Looks like clean stuff. About 2.5hrs north of me and in the middle of the week a lot of regular folks have to work.

I saw one of them at Anderson's grain elevator a few years back in Champaign when I was working on a farm in Champaign County during college. It was very cool to see these old tractors still working.

A nice lineup of IH equipment for sure! Too bad I’m not closer...... or my pockets deeper 😞

I really like those two.  

I have thought about putting a 30 gal clean water tank on top of my weights when spraying.  Add weight and have a place to wash hands.

Cool for a few rounds but after a day of that I’d want to go home and kick the dog 

Especially with that godawful semi-mounted planter.  Used to run one of those on a 1066 for a while and I'd rather be beaten with a rubber hose than have to do that again...

We had a semi mounted 500 cyclo 8 row on a 966 for several years. Impossible to plant straight rows and on the road it was a case of the tail wagging the dog

Definitely a different sound, not sure I really care for it 

They definitely sound different, I’m not sure I could stand straight pipes. Loud enough with mufflers. I really don’t like the sound of a loud powerstroke, but I grew up around my 1468 and like how it sounds. That’s weird I know...🤷🏼‍♂️

I love my 1468 , runs perfect and all but I am not a big fan of the sound .

i think it sounds better with mufflers rather then straight pipes. 
just my humble opinion, but I would not get rid of it for anything , it’s the uniqueness of 1468

With the name Trimble, I was surprised to see him using markers! lmao! That stuff looks to be well maintained, and should bring pretty good money! Especially the 2 14's.

  Every time I see someone using one of those planter I have flashbacks.  Had a 12-30 800.  Hated it.  One of the better days was when that thing left the farm!

The white ones are add on fuel tanks.

Carry more fuel and more weight on the front axle.

Unsure what that grey one is?

The one has a water tank strapped to front of weights.
