THANK YOU BRADY BOY AND SLEDGEHAMMER FOR FANTASTIC PICTURES 1

Be still my heart ! A RESTORED BLACK STRIPE 1466 PICTURE ON TOP OF PAGE !

   Did it have a for sale sign any where around it ?  Don't know where I would put it but one like that is missing from my collection. LOL ! 

   Don't tell Carol,

Thanks for the pictures! It looks like there is a great turn out and there is a little bit of everything. 

 

This year I went to my first RPRU in Du Quoin and I was wondering what the HCOP show is like compared to a RPRU? Obviously all tractor brands are welcome so its not just IH but, is the show roughly the same size, bigger or smaller? Are there more demonstrations going on? Tractor pulling? Is it in the same location every year? 

Next year I'm thinking I'll go to the HCOP show instead of the RPRU in Ohio but I'd like to get an idea of what to expect.

HCOP in only on odd number years.  Next one is 2023.

What’s the story on the purple Deere, the yellow showing through on the hydro that has a for sale sign, and that AC 220 looks like a beast!

Thanks for all the pictures  

Not sure on purple. Just different I guess 🤷🏻‍♂️
 

We wondered if there was an industrial past to the 186?  
 

Those 220’s do look mean

8630 was spinning like mad pulling that 12 btm 800

I would think that a 12 btm plow would be too much for an 8630 in almost any condition. I know my 8650 wouldn’t pull one here where I live. I’m sure a 10 btm would be a much better match. When my dad was out there he said most of that dirt was pretty tough stuff.

I was always told you need to drop a bottom off your factory tractor plow rating to plow up there.
