Half century of Progress

Went to Rantoul today with my dad and brother. Got to see some cool and unique stuff. Not many Garden tractors, a few that were being used as personnel carriers. This is an interesting tractor, we didn't get to see it up close it was lining up for the parade.

It is 3 John Deere 630 tractors hook together with a cab on top of the assembly.

Ahhhh, Chanute AFB. I spent a few months down there attending classes in them hangars. I lived on the south end of the base.

Here's pictures of it working. They are 830's and hooked together they have power. That's about a 40' field cultivator he's pulling.

It was a great show. Especially seeing the old iron actually working.

Thanks for the correction and the pics of them working Michics. It was a good day to hang out with my dad and brother.

I don't remember the HP rating on JD 830 diesels but if it's in the 70 - 80 range x 3 puts it in the 200 plus range. Then you have six wheel drive to boot.

Of course the guy built it just for the challenge. Just like we do with our GT sometimes.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
