Hello All, awhile back I picked up a couple 1614's. I wanted to use the the hydraulic lift tractor so I have been making some changes and getting it ready for plow day. The ' parts' tractor had a brand new Carlisle tire and I found a match at my friends tire shop. I need to paint the front weights and fill the rear tires and it should be ready to go. I will probably have to turn the pins on my brinly as the PK's don't have much swing in their cat o hitches. Here's some pics.

Mike

To be honest Casey this is the first time we will be plowing there. I know that there is corn on the field now.

Corn means corn stalks, and that usually means wedged up between coulter and plow... Unless you have a disc plow... Hmmmm. I will have to see if I am coming, and then pick a tractor...

I know two details, near Evans City, Pa, and on September 26th, after that, Mike will have to elaborate.

It's all spelled out on the WPGTA website Doug. I think the address is there. I want to try and make this one instead of the one in November.

Take the coulter off you won't need it.Otherwise you'll be stopping every 20 feet and pull corn stalks out. :wallbanging:

Much more beautiful tractor than the pics show, must see in person. In fact, must see the rest of Mike's tractors in person.

Unfortunately Mike had other obligations that prevented him from dropping the plow in the ground behind the 1614 on Saturday, but it didn't stop him from inviting me to drop by on my way home to complete a prior transaction we had started.
