IH Collectors Ch. 37 Plowday Pictures

Postby Super A » Sun Mar 24, 2013 9:08 pm

Had a little recreational tillage yesterday at Williamston, NC....

That's a '47--'54 Cub with a '55 style replacement grille

The tractor on the end rows is a 2544 Hydro industrial. It ran like a top. Everyone agreed it could handle one more bottom just fine.

Yes, that's a longstripe....78 model IIRC.

I've tried to load more pics three times and the :censored: thing keeps losing everything and making me log in. Will post more tomorrow....

Al

OK It's tomorrow, trying again...

F-12. It was nice to see a pre-letter series machine. A first for our plowdays.

Some more....

I like these two. I wish I could have been closer. The 3588 is in the next field over, sort of a bottomland field.

This 3588 2+2 is immaculate. Bill "Redbibs" Jennings has several plows for it but today he used this nice IH offset disk with it.

The red Cub is pulling a 2 way plow. We had three Cubs in the field.

More....

"Bearing down" on the '78 Longstripe. It really bossed that 12" plow around!
plowday 3-23-13 037.JPG

A nice C, and a HOT 140. It would pull away from Old Ugly every time... :)
plowday 3-23-13 042.JPG

Our own Brendan In NC checks out Old Ugly and secretly lusts after the IH repro muffler from Carter & Gruenewald.... :lol:
BTW Old Ugly did really well. This is the first time that I really worked the tractor hard since I got it from Billy Clay a little over a year ago. I have added a fast hitch and it was pulling an IH 215 plow with 14" bottoms. It knew the plow was back there but it did fine. The land was fun--it ranged from good old eastern NC sand to some TOUGH clay (probably more like a heavy clayey loam but you would call it "clay")

60 years of agricultural tractor evolution. Wonder what will be sitting beside that Magnum 315 in 60 years?
