I got this in the mail a little over a month ago. Last month I won it on a Girard Auction. I was super pumped to get a buyers guide from the early 70’s. It has some water stains but still a really nice piece. Enjoy.

Ah, yes, I read it when I was a kid.

Yep, with a little time here and there, I finally got around to reading the rest of it today.

Very cool. I have that brochure boxed away in my collection. It and all my IH literature brochures haven’t seen the light of day in decades. I gotta get all that stuff out and check it out some day. Don’t know what I’m going to do with it all. My daughter will probably inherit it all. She will then no doubt  unceremoniously pitch it all in to a dumpster. That and all my “priceless”  aviation magazines and books. Lol.

Sounds like you have quite a collection, hope you get time to dig them out some day. On this same auction I got this buyers guide there was a 4166 brochure that I was bid on. Ended up selling for $100

saw that All-Twine knotter ad and started to have nightmares about it...never could get one of them to work properly and if i went to the dealer to ask about it as soon as i said "All Twine" the building would empty out like rats leaving a sinking ship.

I tried to talk Dad in to buying a 715 instead of a 4400, but he refused to buy a modern combine that had a rope to pull up the ladder.  Which is funny now that I think about it; when he put the 43" floater tires on the 4400 we had to leave the ladder up and climb up the rim and tire.

The guide reminded me that when the 766 first came out it was only offered with the gas 291.  That must have been one thirsty tractor.

I used a 660 sprayer that it mentions to spray tobacco with. I still have it , but haven’t used it since 2015. I never knew exactly what year it was from. The most I ever sprayed was 30 acres, but it had to be sprayed about every 10 days. I couldn’t even imagine pulling in a field of any size and running it all day. It was brutal, not to mention being covered in whatever you were spraying. It worked good though.

Thanks for posting!

Any way you could scan it page by page?

I could maybe figure it out. Or just take pictures individually and pm them to you. Ill try to find time to do it.

I saved the photo's to my hard drive, thanks for posting!

Your welcome, that’s why I wanted to do it so some of you guys could these brochures that haven’t. Their not easy to find on the internet

Scans are much nicer than photos. If you can,  post them here for all to enjoy!

My 856 ran a mounted cotton picker when new, previous owner. It mounted on top of the tractor but didn't sit as high as the one pictured. You drove in reverse on a separate platform with linkages to the controls. It had indentations on the steering wheel where the controls attached until I replaced the steering wheel.  

The one in a picture is very different. It's a stripper with a high mounted basket that you drive normally. Man that would be top heavy!

That picker cotton looks great. The stripper cotton, well...

Thx-Ace

I’ve never scanned anything before and this may be a dumb question but how do you scan? Use a copier? I should know since I’m 20 but I guess not since I have a cellular device?

A function on a printer ,copier, scanner machine. What it takes to make it work.............beyond my skill level.?

Good find.!!  Can't remember exactly when or where I found my copy of this one.  Probably a Red Power Show.  Hard to find.  I spend a lot of time on the scanner.  BK.

I have one of those cheap little do all machines. 

Since fax went away I usse the scan and email a lot with VFD fire reports, contracts etc. 

It works good single page at a time, never tried out of a book/brochure. Would have to get it flat enough so light didn't seep in around the edges

Got me curious, so I tried it. It was right side up when I saved it not sure why upside down now. 

I'm not very savvy at this stuff.

I had never seen or heard of a 2 way disc plow. It's shown on page 16.

More common name for it is a roll-over plow, at least in west Texas.

Some folks don't like the mailing label, or dealer stamp, but I enjoy the history of it.  BK.

I thought it was pretty neat to have both on this buyers guide. Adds a little character and history of where it was. If the dealer is on it, its cool to go to the IH dealers of the past website and see when the dealer was in business.

Are you close to Canyon? I’m thinking of going to WT for school in the Fall of ‘22
