Must of had a real clutch and pressure plate in it by the look of the bell housing. Never seen one in person and doubt if there were ever any of those tractors in my area. Noel

Thanks for the pictures. Very nice.

i found 25 slides of images of the new "javalina" and just got them back from being converted. the slides are dated december 1968 which is right when this tractor went into production. here is part 1 of the images.

i can only assume these slides may have been for the annual sales meeting to introduce the new tractor and showcase the available attachments. i wonder if some of these attachments ever saw production with the short production run of the tractor itself.

kc9kas, these are all factory new tractors and some of the images were for dealer literature.

The pics above grading gravel, and with the stacks of pallets...that IS in front of the Galesburg plant.  I'd say most of these are within the Galesburg immediate area.  No airport very near as I know of today though.

last part of slides

 

The pic with the 3pt "S4242" rear rotary bush hog must be an early one.  It has rigid bars running from the 3pt bar on it's front.  Later ones like mine had chains instead.  Rigid bars would leave you stuck in the air with no traction should you drive the back wheels into a ditch line. Someone welded solid angle onto mine, but left the original chains intact.  Figure they had regrets as the angle iron had been cut off, leaving just the welded ends of it.

That one may have been a prototype also,as there are other differences such as the gearbox & the mounts for it.

  Thanks so much for sharing!!!   :thumbs:

that is cool. the plane in the pictures is a 1964 beech h-18. beechcraft hq and company airport is in nearby wichita, ks so that could be the location. beechcraft also had an operation in selma but i think that came much later since craig field continued to operate as an air force pilot training facility until 1977.

Thanks for the cool photos. What is the box on the front end in most of the photo, it appears to sit into the grill?

Nice bit of history there. Thanks for sharing.

I like that single wheel dump cart. Has anyone seen, or have one of those?

That's the first I've ever seen of such a cart.  Lots of those pics show stuff I've never seen, such as the extended nose on the frame of that JB.  I'm thinking maybe the battery was in that.  Likely another prototype.  LOVE to have any prototype!!!!!!!

There is a additional dump cart listed in the 1968 price list along with the DT-1 dump cart. S-4200 is the model number- it's only listed for the JV series tractors and requires the 3PT hitch for hydraulic lift. What was always odd to me - in the 1968 price list it has the same weight capacity of the DT-1 of 1000 lbs. But in the next two price list in 1969, the weight capacity drops to 500 lbs. Yet according to the price list the DT-1 weighs 173 lbs. and the S-4200 weighs 190 lbs. maybe it's this 1 wheeled cart??

Also it was brought to my attention, the front box on the JB maybe the gas tank- in several of the pictures, you can see right through the front grill and the gas tank is not there.
