Well i went on an exchange trip for 4-h to Chambersburg, Pennsylvania if anybody knows where that is. the town is located in SE PA. On my last night down there i went to a tractor pull in Shippensburg. This was my first experience and i have to say i need to go to more. I love em! Anyways, here are some pics. I was cheerin for the Forrester New Holland Team. I still love John deere though... ;D
Here is the very end of light stock tractors...this is an old international
sorry for the picture quality, but here is a view of the lined up tractors
here is one of the forrester tractors called "Papa Smurf" it is an old Ford 9000

and my shining moment on the tractor way out of my budget haha
here is the ironman sled, some maintinence and a fresh track
and finally here is a t-shirt that i wore that night it is the forrester brand with all four of their tractors on it...hope you enjoyed the pictures
and i think that might be all that i have. So let me know what you think. Thanks, Michael
Pretty good. The Martin's( John Deere) are just out the road from where Forrester's are. A couple years ago, they were at The Buck( Lancaster, PA) and I was offered to sit on one of their tractors, pretty neat.
JDRanch-Hand: Anyone have any info and opinions on New Holland 116 pull type slathers. Thanks.

JDRanch-Hand: Are spec cast semis good quality? Are they compatable with ertl and dcp trailers?

70ds: I run a 116 NH swather. It seems to be a dang good swather. Got it cheap and it does a good job.

JDRanch-Hand: How cheap is cheap Clayton. I found a 14-footer for $1,500 OBO. Think it's fair?

70ds: That is what I paid for mine and it is a 14 as well. Then I bought one for parts for 500 it paid for it self with the first couple small pieces I robbed off of it. Mine is in decent shape for what I paid for it.

70ds: check comparables on fastline and tractor house and they will give you a good idea on prices too. When I bought mine that was half the price of the cheapest ones I found on there.
