My only show I ever get time to take tractors to is this Saturday.  So tonight I started getting them ready.  I'm just taking one load & what fits easy on the 16' trailer.  So this year it's just 3 little pigs.  Taking the original JBI, and if it'll all fit, the S4242 3pt mower on the back of it.  Up front will be my restored D4-10 beside the little T-63.  I got the T-63 pulled out & installed a battery.  That thing fired up almost instantly!  A cloud of smoke at first, but she clears up after a minute or 2.  Case & I took it for a drive.  I got a small plow from twostep at last years plow day.  I am going to cut it down & adapt it to fit on the rear hitch of the T-63, maybe in time for the show.

The old JBI hasn't been fired up but once in the last 2 years, and didn't have spark today.  A quick cleaning up on the points, and she fired right up & runs great!  This & the T-63 just needs the crud knocked off & they'll be ready.

The D4-10 just needs a damp cloth ran over her & she'll be fine too.  She's been started many times, and all I need to do is install a battery & she'll be good to go.

Long as it's right here, a pic of my custom TJD powered JBI.  Still has plow day dirt all over her.  She'll sit out the show this year, as I don't feel like making two hauls.

Boy, Dad and I sure got her dirty, but man what a blast it was to plow with that Beast.

That dirt is a good thing!  Not enough room to take a pic from the front of the JB, but the old girl still has a smile plastered on her face!  :D   I loved watching you guys have fun on her!

Sure hope so!  30% chance of rain, but if it'll just hold off!  In the past I have taken 2 loads, or lifted tractors front wheels over the rails & such to get more on a load, but that ends up taking all the fun out of it by being worn out, so this time I'll just take on a single load what I can easily just drive up & off without a hassle.  The MF12's carb is gunked up (again), so she'll stay at home & I'll just take the Hogs.  Once I get the V4-6 finished, the V4-8 to my place, and the HD12-D finished, I may be back to a 2 trailer show day.  I would love to take all to a show some day.

Finally got time to fetch Hogzilla from Dad's today.  Unload it tomorrow evening & start loading up for my show Saturday.  I got the dust washed off T-63 & JBI tonight, and the S4242 rotary mower on the 3pt hitch of the JB.   Barely had the energy to do anything once I got the silage fed tonight, but tomorrow evening is my last chance to get things show ready.  I have full work days, and I milk Friday night.  So I had to shuffle through best I could.  I sure hope rains hold off for Saturday!  (dust still on in pics)

Looking good Daniel! I don't think I have ever heard of anyone else having a S4242 mower besides you. It may truly be a one of a kind!

Hope it is a great weekend for hog showing!

So far I've not heard of another single owner of an S4242, but even if there are some out there, talk about EXTREMELY RARE!

Nice piggies going to the show. :thumbs:

No, it has tall railing, making it way too hard to load that way.  I should have plenty of room for the 3 and the mower though.

Got the T-63 on trailer, and 1/2 done washing the D4-10.  I will have them all 3 loaded in a little while.  I'll back then under the shed once loaded & cover to keep bird poo off them till Saturday morning...show time.
