Tractor Time - Gonna be Gone Tonight





Going to be working most of the night although I might get a post in when I get back home. Was out blading down the wood chip pile some more this afternoon and realized it had been a while since we had a tractor time post.




I am sure the helpers will be out getting stuff done while I am away. They look so eager and all don't ya know.




I think I see a blade on the back of that Ferguson and I still have about 100 square bales that need thrown up into the loft.




Maybe one of them will hook up the tiller while I am gone too?

As usual click for a larger image!!!!!

    1. I was on a barge in the river without a life jacket so I wasn't safe. But I didn't drink as I was driving.

  4. Seriously. What kind of tractor do you drive / recommend? I read the comment from the other day about how little fuel you burn and was curious.

    1. Exile1981 - I use a 1950 8N for most jobs moving bee hives, general stuff, brush hogging and raking hay although sometimes I use the 861 diesel when brush hogging too. I use the 861 for mowing hay and baling. I sometimes have a third tractor that I am working on as I like to buy ones that don't run but look like they should and get em running again and then re-selling them. Currently my third tractor is Belarus little 2 cylinder diesel and let me tell you I have been kinda impressed with it.

  5. Number 3 is on my tractor! Don't recall seeing her up at the shop. Better setup the critter cam.

    Exile1981, not that you asked me, but I'd get a diesel in the 40-50 hp range not knowing anything else about your situation.

    1. JL - You're right those smaller diesels really are easy on the fuel use. I put about 2 gallons in my old Ford every time I use it and so far I am gaining each time.

      So what is that third one a 3000?

  6. It's a Long 445. Romanian machine, UTB, built on a Fiat design. Mine is a 1978 vintage and I've had it since 1990. Really, pretty bombproof.

    1. Oh ya. I always get those blue Long or Farmtrac tractors confused for the Blue Ford when I don't see all of em. I don't think I have ever actually seen a Long tractor in real life either just pictures of them. Of course it's possible I have seen one driving by and just thought it was a Blue generation Ford too.
