Pics from the Granite Iowa tractor show. They featured John Deere.

That is just the John Deeres that was at the show. More pics of the other bands later.

Real great show and a good banner at the first pic :welcometogttalk: @ Tinner: the cab looks like an old german phone booth. Where is the advantage to use this cab? If it rains, your legs will be wet - but :tractor_rocks:

It seems like any of the rain that gets near us always goes to the north or to the east. Fields are getting so tough that guys further south of us are going out and chopping thier fields for silage just to get something out of them.

I what to thank George for the GT TALK banner, He sent me it and some business cards to advertise for the site for up in this area.

The JD with the cab, I think the cab is John Deere but it must be mounted on the wrong model tractor?

Tim, don't feel lonesome, we're really dry here too. My brother 35 miles south of me got 12 1/2 inches of rain the middle of the month and I got 1 inch here. When I walk around the place I have to be careful that I don't step in a crack in the ground, almost turned an ankle last Friday stepping in one.

Looks like a cab from the 10 or 20 series, but this must be taller. Maybe the owner cut a canopy in the middle and made it smaller :confuse: We call such a thing: krass

That cab looks like somebody took a Year Round Cab that is used on full size tractors and adapted it to the GT. I agree with some of the other comments, I'm not sure what the advantage would be for the way it is mounted tilted back like that ? (some sun shade and maybe roll-over protection?) My avatar has a JD4010 in the background with a full Year Round Cab . Here is another, for comparison.

Some great looking units in those photos, thanks for sharing them.

It´s totally different to the weather here. Just now we had one week without rain. Formerly it was always raining, up to 50 liter per squaremeter a day (don´t know, how much inches this makes), that´s normaly the middle of the month. Harvestlosing in grain and rapeseed is enormous.
But we know that flour and bread will get more expensive...

Tim, you were there in person. Do you remember the cab seeming to tilt that way when you looked at it in person? I ask because sometimes cameras can distort perspective, and that shot is a perfect candidate for that sort of distortion.

Nice pictures, thanks for sharing.

Once again the cab. I think the tin roof is nearly original, the rest is homemade.

Here two pics of 20-numberseries und 20-ngop cabines - I think, they are just lookalike - or reverse, the GTcap is lookalike.
