Sunday Shuffle and GOTO Prep!

Recommended Posts

Talntedmrgreen

Had a nice day and decided to pull my legacy snow cab. That means it's time for a tractor shuffle so I also took the opportunity to get the yellow machines out and make a checklist of things that need to be done before GOTO. As usuall I had help.

Its a game of Tetris for sure.  It will be fun to have the chance to exhibit this many in August.  We will have to see what attachments I need to bring...may have to forego a machine or two.  The orange B206 isnt shown but would be very neat to display on the forks.

 

I fit them all in!  I have so much room I feel like Phil! (Actually the 7790, 620, Squire 6 and 725/trencher still need to fit in)

It was a GREAT day for a few cold ones dOd

After rearranging the id a little photo-shootin of the old B-10 for the next L&GT Magazine. I try to solicit as many pics as I can from others, but didn't get much in the way of B-10's with implements.

Just for the record, how many ya got?

I try not to count, so I had to write them down and tally.  

I have 26 today.  1 is at my Dad's.  3 I plan to move out, but I have 2 coming next week.  1 of those will donate it's engine and then leave, so by April 8 I plan to be down to 23 here.  Maybe 22 4i

12 are Allis (9 B series, 620, 1 AGCO, 1 Deutz).  2 are off brand (Amigos).  2 Squires, 3 Allis-built Homelites.  Of the Simplicity and Allis machines, 2 are non-runners (1 for restoration, 1 is a donor), and the rest are turn-key, but occasionally stubborn to start.  I like a blend of Orange, yellow, blue and bronze, with a dash of Spring Green.

Ah - Josh - I think I see a pallet there that you were supposed to use for shipping my B112, but instead put your glass cab on!    LOL!

B 112 ?

What do you do in your spare time?  I hope that US strain of that collecting bug is not infectious, otherwise I may have to rethink my travel plans, or decide to immigrate permanently!

Very contagious you might want to bring some foster's to counteract it 666

I didn't realise you had a medical qualification as well?  However, I will take your advice, in fact I will start building up my immunity now!
