Spend the day getting ready. Borrowed My old 5th wheel trailer I sold to a friend of mine a year ago. 26' of flat and a 5' beaver tail. Had to change back to 5th wheel hitch as he uses a 2 5/16 ball hitch. Amounted to changing the stick in the trailer to fit. Took a day of vacation today and spent all day today cleaning and loading. WOW the Duck is beat. Have 5 tractors on and have room for the 4855 and the corporate cruiser but it will be a tight fit. Grabbed a pic in the rain tonight of what I have on the wagon to this point and will publish tomorrow. Not going to load the 4855 and the Cruiser till we know what the weather is going to do. Predicting rain at any time through Saturday and Sunday will be Dry.:beerchug: Maybe not that dry?

Lil Bro Grabbed my 20' trailer and started loading this evening. I hope we can get buy with out making double trips. Lil Bro has all the old MFs 6, 7, 8, 10, 12, ,16. We are still working on that 5 and 14.:wallbanging::wallbanging::wallbanging::love:

Then the rest of the 50 and 55 series.:confuse::confuse::confuse::rolling:

I will spare you all from the unloading process and get you to the display. Massey Harris/Massey Ferguson was the featured tractors. There was many more tractors there than usual. The Massey people seem to really bring out the #s. GTs were a bit short but we did get ALMOST all Models displayed.
Pics.
This was our GT line up.

I got this flag off eBay for a gift to Lil Bro for bringing the shade canopy. The canopy had a few issues and we had to retire it so I decided to drape it over the 4855 along with some GTTalk Cards.

The parade went off at 2:00 PM and Brad (#1 Son) drove the 1655, Kenny (Lil Bro) drove his new MF 16 with a tiller, and of coarse I had to show off the 4855.
The 4855 turned out to be quite popular and I sent a lot of time visiting with people asking questions of the build. It was a great time.

Will be back with random pics from the show.

A quite large dairy and grain farm in the Chilton area has also built a 4 wheel drive of a nasty color but here it is.

Glad you had good weather. Pics look like a cloudy day. Nice line up of your herd.
That 'other' 4 wheeler looks to have fairly large tires on it, or is it just the way it is built that makes it look that way? I like the passenger seat, though I would have opted for a dump bed back there.
Thanks for the pics.

Love the sea of red.

Thanks for spreading the word for GTt.

That is hilarious "here is one in a nasty color", I gotta admit the little seat on the back half is pretty cool and funny.

I love the 4855. That thing is a monster.
