I want to say a special thanks also to Peter, aka powerking56.  He sent a $25 gas card, and several miniature diecast JD tractors for door prizes.  Scott, aka sascr, was the winner of the gas card, which I consider the grand door prize.  I had 10 "Dairy Packs Power" T-shirts to give away, plus donated by Southern States Coop, some bags of assorted garden seeds, a baseball style hat, and straw hat, and a pocket knife. 

 

THANKS PETER!!  :thumbs:

Furthest traveled would be Tex tractor jack's Minneapolis Moline.  Jack was driving my TJD powered Bush Hog JBI in the pic instead of the MM.  Here's a pic with Brian on it.  Traveled between 1,300 to 1,400 miles just to get here!

Ugliest..... BAWAHAHAHA :bigrofl:

Sorry David, but that's just funny!

Seroulsly though, hope you get that Snapper together, I think you will be pleased once you get it running. Watching these bigger tractors makes me want to go get the 1855 back together.

 

I second the Unico as prettiest or nicest restored, beautiful tractor.

 

I watch Nashcub with his yellow Cub plow, I can say that thing was laying a pretty furrow, nice sharp cut wall and then pushing dirt over, it was plowing really well.

I don't think I ever saw the FF spin or hangup but maybe once, that thing just motored right through it.

Kenny had it set up really nice. Load the wheels and that thing would be unstoppable.

I also want to thank Daniel for the dairy shirt. That'll be my next year's attire at plow day. Also the food was excellent. That cake was absolutely delicious. Is there gonna be a different brand on the cake every year? It would look good power red!

Well I will definitely not complain considering it tasted excellent. I always wondered what a green tractor tasted like. I guess my Case's will like eating them once they are all dialed in. :D

Not to start a brand war or anything. :p

The videos are fine on You Tube, so I don't know what the problem is, but George is going to look into it.

Brian,

The videos look to be fine on my end. It might have been an issue on Youtube with off site streaming.

Guys, I'm happy the FF was able to make a furrow. It did a good job and didn't let me down. Hope to load the tires before the next plow day she goes to. Then maybe I can slide the plow over and get a much bigger bite. I was blessed to turn a furrow with a 430 and those are sweet. Tells me what upgrades I need on that FF.

Kenny, it did more than turn a furrow! On the round I made, the top of the plowshare was at ground level, and the dirt was rolling like water. I really enjoyed it, thanks!

Glad to oblige! Like I said before this started, anyone who wants a turn is more than welcome to try it out!

Just hard for me to fathom someone on a JD 430 asking me to swap turns, though! Shoulda been the other way around, you know! But it happened!
