  1. What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    There is a lot that I could say here from the various things that I’ve learned plowing with GT’s but I don’t want to get too far off topic. Next time you plow, see if someone is available to take a video of it and post it. I like watching plowing videos but also I might have a few pointers from what myself and/or my plow dog buddies have learned... You certainly have a sweet plow rig and it doesn’t surprise me that it draws attention while trailering across town!
  2. What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    Both nice rigs for sure but this plow dog is all about that first pic and the freshly turned soil I can’t wait to get my Brinly in the dirt...
  3. My GT14

    Thing of beauty Richie! I can almost hear the “thump-thump-thump” of that new heart all the way up in Cheddar country.
  4. C-195 help

    Here is what you are looking for... If you google ”Valspar 5339-01” you will find all kinds of it still available on line ranging from $6-$15. I have found it to be a really decent paint for spray bombs. I believe they also have this available in qts and pints if you prefer to “roll your own”. Other pro painters on here may disagree with me and I would respect their opinions more than mine. However, for the DIY guy, this is a really good product. Lowe’s was my go to for this product but I just got off the line with an idiot there who wasn’t willing to help me. He said, “We Don’t Have that on the shelf.” I said, “you ordered it for me in the past from your Valspar supplier by number.” He said, “Sorry sir, I can’t help you!” THANK YOU CAPTAIN OBVIOUS! So—hopefully this helps you in your search for some paint! I’m fairly confident that if you have a Lowe’s near you and a willing person at the paint counter that they can order you a case 6 cans from Valspar direct...

    Thanks Dan!!! Three cheers for the “mad scientist” and another cool creation!
  6. '68 Raider 12 Resto

    Dan—GREAT JOB ! I can’t wait to take some video footage of that thing turning soil! I can’t wait to hear how it sounds lugging the Punisher through the soil! I can’t wait (if you’ll let me) to get some seat time on this gorgeous “gear slammer”! I guess i just cant wait... post a before and after picture please...
  7. C-195 help

    I picked up my first Super C last fall and am looking forward to playing with it this summer. My goal is to eventually do a complete restoration on mine and make it look better than the day that it left the factory. They are an acquired taste for sure in the looks department but being the last of the "Big Wheel" 's they are really special machines. I plan to have a rear three point and if I can find one, eventually a rear PTO. What I really think is cool with yours @BPEisenhower is the fact that it has a family heritage with you. I encourage you to become a member of the forum. It is very inexpensive but with allow you to post a bunch of pictures of your projects and the cash helps keep this great site up and running! When you get ready to do the restoration, please start a thread in the restorations portion of the forum and we can all keep an eye on your progress. One thing that would really add to the cool factor would be if you have any pictures of the tractor back when your grandpa owned it! We love those vintage horse pics! I have used several different reds in the past for my horse restos but I tend to be partial to Valspar IH red. One thing interesting that many guys on here have found is that by changing the color of your primer, you can change the hue of your paint, the darker the primer, the darker, deeper the finish of the red...The wheels color will vary upon whether you prefer a linen white or a brighter white. I like the linen or antique white myself... Thanks for sharing this tractor with us and remember...These things are ADDICTIVE!
  8. She Ain't Pretty...

    Another nice 520 for your stable Jim! It has its warts and wiggles but for a 21 year old machine that has been in service--not too bad. Those attachments are really in good shape especially that blade! Great acquisition!
  9. First Haul of 2018

    I think I would've had time to take a shower and grab breakfast between the start and the spin out of that pull! However, it goes to show you when a tractor is set up well for power and traction with a competent driver at the wheel--a class win is the result!
  10. First Haul of 2018

    Hmmmm...now where did I put that 12” Brinly?
  11. '68 Raider 12 Resto

    That’s what I’m talking about—thanks Dan for the SUPER I like both of them—I see a great trading card with both of those!!!! Just sayin...
  12. '68 Raider 12 Resto

    that’s Dan’s totally awesome Rat Rod! I’ll let him pick his favorite shot of it and post it here or Jim will swoop in and give you a link to another thread... all Ican say is, “IT IS COOL!”
  13. I confess, I've always liked Panzers...

    NOTHING wrong with that! What a fun machine to have around for that purpose. I bought my son Judge one for his 4th Birthday. It came with quite a few options but I have since added several more to make it a loaded machine including: headlights, grote tail light, rear lift with Brinly adapter, creeper gear, cigarette lighter (non original ‘plug’ at this point) ammeter Gauge (although not in the factory location), fenders (although not factory mine are bigger because of large rear tires), hydraulic lift, and rear PTO (probably the rarest option on the machine.) We call it the Mule because it is a dedicated plow tractor. I have the front PTO disconnected at this point although I have all the parts for its reassembly. It is one of the best plowing machines that I’ve ever driven and a cool little tractor. If you are so inclined to own a Cub, they don’t get much better than a 100. I’ve bought and sold nearly one model from every series over the last 8 years and I like a variety of them but the Mule is my favorite Cub. Stone throwing will commence now...
  14. I confess, I've always liked Panzers...

    Off topic—who would ever own an off topic tractor? speaking of “little Panzers”, I took this video a couple of years ago at Bluniers plow day, check out the second tractor—I believe it was a 1967 Panzer. It had power and handled that 10” Brinly like it was nobody’s business. If @dtallon is still on here, he might remember having seen it there. Cool looking rig and functional too... @mikeeyre74 that is a cool machine and I can’t wait to see the thread develop as you pick it up...
  15. What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    Slap a set of Ag’s, rear hitch, and a Brinly 10” and you’re ready to turn some soil with that nice looking tractor! I know, as my local circle is so fond of telling me, I need to get my mind out of the furrow! I just can’t help it—I see a GD with a vertical stack and I think “Let’s go plowing!” That stack is a nice addition—might have to buy a couple myself...
