Between the truck, trailer, and 3 wagons, there's about 1000 bales of hay in that picture ready to go into the hay mow!:xmas:

Yeah, that'd be one of those nights that we were up til 10-12 PM stacking hay in the loft. That's why I really appreciate this way of haying!!

BTW, that's the CEO (my dad) unloading the hay. Pretty tough to handle 1000 lb bales huh??

You got that right!!! A round baler turns haying into a one man job!! It's all done from the tractor seat, gotta love that!

This is the sweet machine that powers the round baler, and hauls a lot of the bales home.

It's a 1998 Case-IH C60 with a 3cyl turbo Perkins. 50 pto HP, with 8 Fwd and 4 Rev gears, all syncronized. Just like driving a car, cept no radio, and no heat! Ok haying, not so great with a snow blower!

Dana, he sure has some experience. He's been driving since he was 4 or 5 YO.

That's CEO with his older sister, in 1948 on my grandfather's first tractor.
As for how much he gets paid,,, not nearly enough!!!

Argee, SHAME, SHAME!!!:hand: No MFs on this farm!! (well a few for parts), We're all IH, the loader tractor that CEO is unloading hay with is a Case-IH 495, 43 PTO HP, 8 sp forward, 4sp Rev.
This is accomplished with a Hi-Lo-Rev range divider, and a simple H pattern 4 sp. The 4 sp is syncronized, but on this one the range divider is not. It makes a real nice loader tractor.

Well, MF or IH or Ford or Case, it's still a fine looking tractor. I just know that I like the looks of it. I guess I don't qualify as a connoisseur of fine old tractors.:smiles:

Did you mean the tractor in the B&W pic?? It's a 1947 W4 IH. I think they were about 25-30 HP. It's got a 5 sp with 1 rev gear.
