    I was in Ecuador last month and this was one of the tractors they had. They were banging and welding 20160423_072832.jpg on the circle thing that is towed behind the tractor to cut the soil.

    The oil spot came from the 65 we were working on prior to putting this one on the deck.

    Had the afternoon to go up North 30 miles to a small town sports day. They have a tractor pull every year for the locals and folks I can tell you if you learn to listen to these folk, you may learn something. Hard to beat the sound of these old girls doing their job and the little JD E

    They even had some junk there.
    [​IMG]


    Had 3 pieces of home made pie the old girls made at home and were selling for $2 a slice, so I paid them $6.6666 a piece and told them to raise their prices. Watched a ball game and talked until I got dry tongue.

    Got home so as I could go to a party with the wife which to my total unease had started at noon and I got home at 5. She had left to go pick strawberrys at a neighbors who was gone to the same sports day. She picked

    in 25 minutes and made less than half into jam by 7.:mining:

    The lad picked out a spider from the pails full.
    [​IMG]

    I snuck out at 6 to play with an old 22 and even older scope. Came home to find mama skunk moving towards the yard from the North. With at least 9 little ones in tow.[​IMG] I opened up with the old semi in flock shoot mode and got 4 little ones dead and I don't know about wounded as they went into the long grass and our thick caraganas. Came to the house for the camera and by the time I got back, 2 of the little carcass's were gone. I waited 20 yards away and got another little one and then I managed to hit mama. Wife said while she was picking stawberry's at the neighbors he had to go out and flock shoot at a herd the same size.

    "They even had some junk there." :belly laugh:


    round here in a skunk situation like yours we try to get momma ...the lil ones rarely can survive without help.......every year we get some that come in and they always use a pipe culvert i have rigged up plugs for the culvert so i just catch them comeing or going ....plug the ends and flood it.....saves on the smell....works like a charm

    I know not why there are so many this year. I shot 4 up North as they were headed to a customers yard. I like the culvert idea but water for drowning would be an issue. The smell is good in small doses.
    Kinda figured I had you with the junk.:belly laugh:

    Fourth picture, was that a 371 Detroit in that Massey? First I ever saw a Detroit in an old farm tractor. Was it retrofit?

    As I don't the real answer I'll just say, I don't know. The farm show magazine/paper has all kinds of retrofitted tractors in it.

    The fun part of these old tractor pulls is how the guys do retrofits and even cheat to win. I enjoy listening to the old boys talk about how to get an advantage with height/weight/or whatever to win just bragging rights.

    Here is a pic of our neighbors tractor/baler combo. My lad was learning to bale and actually got the last 146 bales made without rain on them. There is very few good bales up here due to rain and the neighbor was happy he hired Bobby to bale while he went to a wedding as we got an inch that night.

    I'm in the market for a small tractor. I've got a 3 acre lot that has killed 2 johndeere riding mowers in 6 years.
    I was thinking about a big zero turn but 5 grand for a one trick pony has me considering other options.
    Looking on craigslist I've seen several of the old ford 8 and 9n gas burners for 1500 some of which include a finish mower. I'm now thinking it's the way to go as tiller implements brush hogs and others can be had for cheaper on there and would give me the versatility to do some driveway grading
    and garden work.
    Anyone have experience with these old basturds?

    Great old tractors , stay with the 8N as they are newer and really easy to get parts for. Lots of them are coming on the market because all the old guys that collect and restore them are dying. Around 2500 gets a nicely restored 8N.

    If you get an 8n you might as well drag 3-4 more onto the place, for parts. Ive seen non-running tractors go for a few hundred frn many times.

    Welker Farms 2016 - Part 3- Harvest *Updated*
    Welker Farms Inc



    Published on Nov 16, 2016
    *Note - Updated Version - I found some footage that never made it into the original and so I edited them into this one. The new stuff is mostly in the beginning and later part of the video, Enjoy!

    *Note - This is only the harvest part of the original full length "Welker Farms 2016" video, click on the link to see the full version! https://youtu.be/OcjyMmeBFw0

    Four years have passed since I produced the original "100 Years of Montana Farming" and now I've finally made a successor! "Welker Farms 2016" is a captivating look into our farming season. I've put off making a video of this size for some time as it is very difficult to film and farm at the same time. I tried my best to keep the video under 10 minutes but with so much footage I just couldn't. I hope you enjoy and feel free to comment and share! I try to reply to everyone. Like my page at Facebook.com/welkerfarmsinc

    CyberLink's PowerDirector 15 worked miracles! It's come a long way since my first experience with PowerDirector 9. Extremely stable and user friendly. Nothing is more frustrating than fighting editing software and I can honestly say it was a pleasure using PowerDirector 15.

    I'm thinking it's the Perkins 4-cyl diesel ?
    I have a MF-175 (circa 1968) and it's my MAIN workhorse for nearly everything and pulls a 5-ft. bush-hog. It's very good on fuel and is very strong (63-hp).

    CONGRATS on your purchase.
