Our Threshermans Show is in full swing

Postby Greenthumbfarms » Thu Jul 21, 2022 8:06 pm

The 60th annual Will County Threshermans Reunion Show opened today. Spent my day jumping between the sheller, thresher, steam engines, and plow. 3 more days of old school farm fun.
I brought my 3 cubs out to show, and my International 240 utility is pulling a water wagon for the steam engines. I've been plowing on my 4020 with a 720 IH plow.

That dirt is beautiful, we got red tight land around these parts...and rocky!

Quite the stack of weights on the rears of that 4020! :)

800 pounds of rear ballast. It pays off when plowing heavy clay...I lifted the front of the tractor up a few times plowing...
I really hated those weights being there when I had to slide the wheels in from 72" centers to 60" centers. Manhandled them off, manhandled them on.

None of my tractors are "show queens" even the 2 nicely restored antiques. They all have to earn their keep!

We got rained out this morning just as we started our morning threshing session. We were supposed to have our small frame tractor pull today...I had planned to pull with the 1950 Cub. We will try tomorrow if it is dry.
