Red Power load

Well they all fit , weight frames off ,weights off ,  quick hitch off and they just barley made it  😅 This would have been what you would have seen at the Farm Progress Show in the fall of 1985 , IH had this lineup done and ready for the public . The merger took place on January 1st 1985 and the powershift 50series was converted into the Magnum and introduced in the fall of 1987. These two smaller utility tractors got there old hoods put back on and they put the Case IH decal on them and sold these until the come out with the Maxxum tractor lineup . The 485 and 885 belong to Herbert Starzinger from Austria , they have never been in the field and are basically new yet with 370 hours on them . They have spent their life after IH / Case IH up here in the north country at the University of Wisconsin Ag Engineering school in River Falls WI . The school sold them 3 1/2 years ago and Herbert purchased them . He contacted me and was wondering if I would restore them for him . It’s been a bit of a journey but I finally got them finished up this spring .

See you guys on Wednesday afternoon /evening 👍

I spent many an hour during Engineering Labs walking around the 885 wondering what the heck that thing was and why no one was using it. The tractor sat in the same spot in the engines lab for all 5 of my years at UWRF. In my time there the tractor never moved and I don't even know if it was ever started.

I assume Howard took a couple loads in yesterday? Kinda forgot what all I saw. I remember a mounted picker and a Farmhand on what looked like a M? Maybe 4 loads?

 

Haven’t seen anything from Wyoming or Montana yet.

@DirtBoyz07 - If you have time, would you be able to take some more pictures of in the inside of the 885?  We have an 884, so does my BIL, would be interested in what the next phase would have looked like compared to what we have.

Thanks.  Always interesting to see what you are working on.  You have some very unique machines thru your shop.

Is there something unique about the H besides the color?

Can’t wait to see them also!!

Ha ha!  I beat you to it, Alan!  As luck would have it, I was busy hauling manure today when I spotted Danny in Hospers, IA. He must’ve stopped for lunch?  I stopped on my way back through and talked to him and @INTERNATIONAL 1466 & co., turns out Danny’s luck wasn’t so good today.  Maybe he will post the picture of us by his load as proof? 😄

Yep, just as Ron said. We had a preview. A couple pics at Hospers. Will leave the rest to Danny.
