'21 RPRU Very late model TD-25B


Recommended Posts

Thought this deserved more recognition that it probably got.

Kudo's to the owner for a super sharp very late model 25B!!!

Does that machine belong to Gregg Gibbs and his brother that own Blue Ridge tractor in Benton Illinois by chance. Great guys and that’s a super sharp 25 B.

Still has the older type mechanical power shift, later ones had the hyd pilot control for the power shift. Think that has been given a round nose cone to make it look like a later model.

Was a TD-25E with the International Hough badging. Had a long wedge on the rear for splitting tree stumps.

I thought it was so cool of someone to bring these big machines. The PayLine machines don't get much recognition compared to the AG and trucks, and stuff this big has to be expensive and time consuming to bring to the shows. Supposedly the old timer sitting down under the tent bought the TD-25B new.

He was nice enough to allow me to sit in the seat of this beast!

A couple of gallons of paint on the tracks and she would look like she was fresh from the factory.

Dad bought that tractor new in 1965 room Roland Machinery in Springfield Illinois and it's moved all over the country worked in Ohio then I moved to North Carolina South Carolina Florida Tennessee North Dakota Kentucky and it has been back in Illinois since 1976 it has about 40,000 hours on it 3 engines converted 25c undercarriage we put the hydraulic system on it in 1987 it was a cable tractor which meant hard-nosed and all the hydraulic controls valving tank to make it look like a late model 2
