    just going through some pictures on the computer and figured I would post one. This is my buddies 2001 F-150. He owns a John Deere 4700 that he plows with locally, but is thinking about adding a 7.5' Snowway or Meyer.

    That's a lot of F150's!!! Add them up and you got a nice F600.

    they get the job done. Every single one of them is put on hay hauling duty in the summer months. They are all 4x4 and 8' bed with the exception of the 1996, its a short bed. They look pretty cool with 45 hay bales in the bed.

    oh yeah i got a good one. It sat on a farm in a field for quite a while, but i got it for free, so how could i say no. The sad part was it was a 74 F250 Highboy with the snowfighter package. Only had 50,xxx miles and was used all its life to plow for the Battlecreek airport. I rebuilt the front end and fix the saggin of the body but it was rotting out fast so i got rid of it.

    And now i have an 85 F150 that i picked up cheap because the 4x4 didn't work. Fixed a gear in the t-case and everything works great.
    Thats when i first got it.

    and now [​IMG]



    This pic makes it look better than it really does...There is dents everywhere from off roading it hard. I jsut added 4.10 gears and lockers. I have Bucket seats inside now. I have changed a ton of stuff on it. I can't wait to stick my Mile Marker Hydro 10.5k winch on it

    you got that right its expensive...the john deeres handle the grunt of the work, but we use the farmalls just to keep them running. every spring we have to clean all the carbs (theres 10 total farmalls all letter series except for a 100 and 140), change all the oils, and fix the brakes. they don't get run nearly enough but my buddies uncle (the collector) can't part with them...in fact he keeps buying more...wish he would trade them all in and buy a new 6000 series Deere.

    I'll have to get a pic when i go home but our main wk horse is a Massey Feruson TO-35. Damn good truck. As long as i can remember we haev never had to replace anything besides a rotten out rim. My dad rebuilt the motor when he worked for a tractor repair place in the early 80's and since the 90's it has led an easy life at our house instead of a grape farm. It loves to work though once it gets goin.


    Edit: heres another farm truck for most people... [​IMG]

    MY dads new toy. It is a 55 IHC R-110, its cab and part of the box will be goin onto this monster [​IMG]

    That is a 5 IHC s-100 if ya couldn't tell. The crazy neighbors cut the top and then jsut left it sit out like that. My dad was interested at first but then when he found out what truck it was we had to get it up to the garage right away. He had an R series when he got out of HS, so now he is in heaven with another.
