Not red but--

JD 420-c loader I just got. I needed one and since I still cant find a reverse idler shaft for the Case 310 I found this little guy. New undercarriage and pads on it years ago then never used much,--ended up sitting in a shed for eons and motor was slightly stuck which I got loose fairly easy. When they last ran it,--probably had alki gas and that will stick a motor in a flash if not started often

I will need a grille for it too,--they really messed this one up. I got the hood and front guard for it,--have no idea why they took the guard off in the first place.

...good score !!!

...had one of those for years...great little tractors....I removed all the loader stuff and put a regular blade on it...as I was then working at   Caterpillar who were agents for JD track machine here in NZ

We actually built all the blade assemblies for JD in NZ at the time

The tracks on my 310 are junk so I ordered new chains and bolts from Pivot Equipment Parts in Indynapolis ,In. --- they had them in stock last year. If you call them ask for Jordan Troutman,--if he is still there he knows all about these and will make suggestions and answer your questions about the tracks.

I also have a 420-w utility tractor that has the Davis 100 loader and backhoe. It has long axles so it can be set for row crops. A village 17 miles from here bought it new in 1956 or 57 and later sold it. The hoe got taken off and sold but I later stumbled upon it 10 miles of its original home and its now back with the tractor,---I dont have it put back on yet.

Alki gas is this gas we are forced to use now that has corn wiskey in it! Damn crap destroys the motors!

Hardtail!-- ole buddy! --- I am still kickin, still fightin the prostate cancer and still wearin diapers! lol! Been doin my 4.5 acre garden and donating most of the produce to the Midwest Food Bank in Bloomington, Il.

We process what we need and donate the rest.

Got the 420 to log with. Was lookin for a 340 IH but none to be had so I ran into the 310 Case and found out the reverse idler shaft was junk in it,---well there aint no more to be had since these 310's all ate them like candy!!! Guess it was a design flaw by Case when they started them. Anyway I ran into this 420 and its S'POSED to run. I figure it should be o.k. cause somebody spent a LOT of money on the new undercarriage on it. I was told by a friend of the former owner that they last ran it 10 years ago then parked it in a shed where it sat til I got it. It was on a concrete floor and in a dry shed so I figure it might be worth trying so I brought it home,--got the motor loose and thats as far as I got so far.

Got busy trying to get ready for winter,--course you are NEVER actually ready! LOL!

Did some loggin with the 1835-b skidloader this summer. Sis and I cut a bunch of trees down and saved the logs, tossed the brush into the Vermeer 1600 chipper ( slant power!!)  and the midsized stuff was cut into firewood lengths and stacked on the street with a free sign on the pile. Nothing is going to waste,--the chips are being used for a path across her property and works well. She already had a chip path that lasted nearly 10 years and we are putting another layer on it.

I need the small crawler to go down the hills to get more logs and the skidloader has its limits so gotta watch what I grab with it. The NH L-781 is here at home with the forks on it to move logs and stuff around with.

A few pix of the saw and the log peeler, oh, and the 1835.  I try to knock off some of the bark to get rid of the sand that the wind imbeds in it. I keep the logs clean to start with which helps.

This is by no means a commercial OR professional operation!! LOL!

I kind like the 2 cylinder JD crawlers. Fate I guess. I love anything with tracks, tanks, armored vehicles, tanks, dozers, tanks, tractors, did I mention tanks??? Anyway the first doser I got to run was a JD MC. So there us a spiritual connection. Went from there to an M60A1 tank to about 200 hours on a D8K and now I have my 7U D4 and T340.
