Thanks for the video Levi. Now that's a nice video. The shot of the styled "D" with dual chrome exaust stacks is one of our local boys. He custom made the casting so that he could do the dual exaust, and boy does that sound good! Thanks for posting the video.

The reason you didn't see any Green ones is because they hide in the grass when a real (Red) tractor is around :D  :D :D :D

 

But I thought red is the color of embarrassment or shame, and green is the color of envy? :poke:

my grandad was a ih man and would not even consider any thing else

 

Same here, both videos (the red ones, I didn't watch the green one) brought smiles to my face. I grew up with IH.

 

Super A, two H's, M, Super M, Super MTA, 460 Utility, (the bucking tractor) two 706's (one gas, one diesel) a 1466, 1566, Hydro 100, 815 combine, and the first 14 series combine sold in the area. (1460) Boy, was that 1460 a Cadillac when that came out.

JD, I'm just having a bit of fun.

 

Ain't nothin like a hearing one of those Johnnie Poppers under a heavy load.  It's a sound that says POWER!

I know OB, nothing taken personally. If you think that diesel sounded good while pulling, you should here how nice gas run John Deere sounds. A much nicer sound! Thanks for posting the video my Friend! :thumbs:

I was just kidding around also. My brother and I are always having brand wars. He loves the John Deere's and I am more of an IH fan. Its all in good fun though.

Seriously guys, no offense taken. I don't take things personally, and I don't get upset easily (unless you pee in my coffee). If we can't have a little poking fun, then we shouldn't be posting and should just stick to reading. Think about it, if I was bent on being brand specific, why would I be following this post as long as I have. I might only buy John Deere's, but I love all brands!

 

We're all Brothers here, and no hard feelings are felt. No apologies required.
