Tractor of the week # 7 1066


Recommended Posts

Lotta new pics in this thread, very nice.

No new pics from me for this year yet as we aren’t doing much......been trying to make dirt, but it seems we have Snow  about every third day. 

Black stripe with 16xx hr that’s been here for 8-10 years, and two ‘75s that have been here for 20 and 30+.  I look online every morning, just Incase a clan/straight one pops up.

if anybody would like to rotate the rafters for me in the second pic, I thank you.

Hey Bitty,

How do you like the big tires on your 1066?

What's the story on them.

Thx-Ace 

We love them for flotation. It's one of my brothers tens and he got the tires from Ed Lehman the one is a blem. We have had to pump that one up every so often. Rims were combine rims from a local consignment sale with junk (Goodyear) tires on them . Funniest thing about it was the neighbor who is always picking on us for having big tires was right there when they started the bid he told us we should get them being sarcastic. Brother raised his hand and they were his. Neighbor walked away saying that we make his head hurt ;)

 

As to your use in muddy fields they wouldn't do you any good. Dual R2 is your friend

I'm sure it is, but I'm with you, don't know how.:huh:

Edit your first post and I believe it will let you change the title. Otherwise BJ may see this and help you out.

Wish I had pictures of 2 1066s I got to see, probably about 7-8 years ago.........same farm, same family, bought new at the same time.......

The last 1066 white stripe sitting beside the first 1066 black stripe.....

Sorry for no pictures, my mind was elsewhere that day.

Dad bought a new one in early spring of 1972. Deluxe cab with air. Boy did I catch a bunch of flack in ag classes about an air conditioned cab!  Have a black and white picture of it somewhere of the day it was delivered.

I'd like to add a 1066 to the fleet.  I knew of a couple in the neighborhood one was a black stripe.

Used to have them. Both 1973s at both bought off County Rd 10 in Logan county but different locations. Both were 4800 houred tractors i think were correct. One with no fenders was bought non running at a estate sale. Got sold non running to a guy around Marion. The one with fenders and duals on, came from a 90 year old gentleman. I probably should have kept it. A good detail person could've got that one to shine in its original paint. But I just can't keep everything. Traded it in on a disk in 2016.

Does a 966 with a 1066 turbo count? Asking for a friend......20180227_144009.thumb.jpg.dfeb93a8aee8bb50f7f8dd33e66b9e88.jpg

Got several 10's now had several before.But don't have the brains to post pics on here for some reason. 

But the 10s are probably the most famous, know about, respected (as much as other tractor color owners can) IH tractor. 

Too me they are like Bo Derek in her 20's, a 10.
