Baker farm got a BIG Upgrade this week.

This is just like the old coffee shop, which was like the old coffee shop down the street. Pull up a chair, sit down and enjoy some good discussions. Please, no political, religious or racial posts.

That would of required me to get out of the AC! :)

The 15 is a heck of a tractor. I am amazed at how much power it has. That bush hog pushes it around some but the motor sure doesn't know it's back there.

If you look around on my youtube page you'll find more nonsense like that one, but usually just with model airplane. :D :shock: :mrgreen:

Nice 1586! :beer: We have a pair of 10's on the family farm. One Dad bought new. A year later he put mechanical front wheel assist on it for better traction while mulboard plowing. It is an Elwood unit which they get parts for by using the parts break down for an IH 3688- I believe.

Thats cool story Steve. Reminds me..back in the day....dad bought a Kubota gear drive. The next year we were looking at parts books and making it into a hydro. Only thing he did buy was new decals...lol

So it was a good Christmas for ole BB. Not only did he get his own 15' Batwing, he also procured his very first dual tandem gooseneck. The 1997 GMC pulled it all home pretty well.


This should allow me to haul a few pieces of machinery if I need too as well as haul off scrap, and the bush hog will be put to good use keeping the place looking a little better!

Went thru the thread from the beginning, it seems your title is a bit "deceptive" ;) Baker farm got a BIG Upgrade this week. would be at least FOUR upgrades.

Congrats, a lot of nice workhorses you picked up. :beer:
