  1. Cub Cadet 73

    Randy, I like the narrow frames Cubs, and like the looks of that style that the 73 has, as well as the 71, 72, etc. Of course, I really like the style of the 70 and 100 tractors. A friend of mine has over 20 Cub Cadets, mostly narrow frames, from Originals, 70s, 100s, 122s, etc. He did say he may sell one of his Originals, but I never really like the Original, they just sit and drive too low for my taste.
  2. The Newest Arrival—

    Josh, I'm glad you made it home safe, and without being hung as a horse thief.
  3. The Newest Arrival—

    Nice. Larry didn't have that one when I was at his place back in April.
  4. The Newest Arrival—

    I have the Missouri State Patrol on high alert, so you better take the back roads......
  5. Red Square 2018 Calendar Project

    Sorry, guys. I wanted to have this calendar out by now, but been too busy at other things. So, I'm way behind on this. Please be patient. And if someone wants to jump in and put one together, it wouldn't hurt me in the least bit and I would be very grateful.

    Nice pictures, indeed. And I love red barns or sheds......I even have a red shed to house up to 4 or 5 of my Wheel Horses.
  8. Liquid Tire Chains

    Here is a quote from that article. " The Liquid Tire Chain theory was sound. A control on the instrument panel activated a pair of aerosol canisters mounted above the rear tires that contained a chemical compound labeled Liquid Tire Chain Traction Improver. Inside the canisters was a space-age polymer ready to coat the rear tires and turn slip into grip. Press the button and presto! Evaporating solvent left a traction-improving chemical compound on the tires that resulted in instant winter traction, even on ice. Whether or not the system worked in practice is a matter of historical debate.

    Seen this on WFM - a blast from the past, sort of. http://www.foxnews.com/auto/2017/11/10/liquid-tire-chain-no-traction-snow-problem.html
  10. Picked up a new horse hauler/project truck

    I like all the old trucks, especially the late 50s, 60s, and 70s trucks, any brand will do. I would love to find a 60s IH truck, but any truck from that era would do. It's funny how the square body 80s Chevys are now in vogue and are bringing much higher prices than I think they're worth. Ford and Dodge from that era, haven't caught on as much as the GM trucks, but I'm sure they will, soon.
  11. "Clyde"--Dad's 953

    I have a 10 inch Brinly that I used on plow day events. Last weekend it was on the back of my 416-8. I also have a 8 inch slot hitch plow that needs some work to get it to adjust. I love the looks of the 953/1054 tractors. And I would love to get at least one of these 953s ready to do some plowing. Time, right now, is my enemy. Just don't have enough of it to do any damage in the garage. But, with the holidays coming up, we usually take a week off between Christmas and New Years, so if there isn't anything on the "honey-do" list, maybe I'll have time to mess with these 953s and a John Deere 425 I picked up back in September.
  12. "Clyde"--Dad's 953

    Thanks for posting the videos and pictures. I have two 953s and got one running, temporarily, until crud or something in the fuel clogged the carburetor....twice. That one needs some hydraulic pump work done to it. The other 953 hs some serious wiring issues (needs rewired). It has the inside rear wheel weights.
  13. Plow Day, Treloar, Missouri, Nov. 4, 2017

    Just the one picture of the GTs plowing. We only had about 10 GTs. The Horse did okay, but at the risk of being blasphemous, my old John Deere 316 Onan was a far better plow tractor than the 416-8. Unfortunately I sold the 316 a couple of years back. Front end a bit light, and it lost more traction than I like, but I also didn't get the plow dialed in as good as I would have liked.

    Pictures, lot of pictures. I will start off with the only Wheel Horse there, my 416-8.

    Field is supposed to be dry, so everything's a go for today.
