Personal projects that every one has?

SASKFARMER's Avatar Jan 9, 2021 | 14:32 1 Today we got the front on and some wiring and sheet metal. Remade the front grill last summer painted and put back in tractor.

This is one of a dozen or so we have.

A 830 JD diesel early electric start tractor.





Stuck here may as well work and play a bit in the shop.

What are others projects you have done or on the go or will be some day.

Next is a 1928 JD D and a 430 Crawler that my youngest is working on. Reply With Quote

  • Jan 9, 2021 | 16:19 2 Don’t have a shop, the money, or the time right now, but I have a few projects I would love to do someday.

  • Jan 9, 2021 | 16:51 4 I've always liked the 830 Deere, good lugging power, you could pull it down enough to count the fan blades.
    Good job on the grill, anybody whose worked metal knows that wasn't made during coffee break. Reply With Quote

  • Jan 9, 2021 | 17:53 5 I grew up driving a JD R, an 820, a G and A. The R and 820 both had the pup start and I really thought I'd done it when I could start them.

    We still have the G. It runs and it would be my project to finish painting it this winter but thie damn hernia surgery has everything on hold. Reply With Quote

  • Blaithin's Avatar Jan 9, 2021 | 18:02 6 Still working on my planted aquarium. Bought fish for it last week! They’re in quarantine.

    Much smaller scale than restoring old equipment but I’m poor, don’t have a shop and didn’t receive the gene to be that interested in old equipment to begin with 😆

    Paint job looks snazzy though! Reply With Quote

    We had a neighbour who had like three when I was a very young boy. He hooked two together and I remember him farming with them. Reply With Quote

  • Jan 10, 2021 | 07:16 9 Nice pictures....but do you think John Deere builds something as reliable today?


    When I look back at the tractors I drove as a kid ...I had much less trouble with Deere tractors than the ones of today...


    Worst case scenario there is still a 4440 that after an hour being plugged in will start to do chores if needed...

    I don't know what Donaldson salesman got the pictures and videos of the John deere air intake/filter design team....but they have to be quite well shot ...because the air intake system is garbage on most deere tractors today...when you look back at what use to farm this country in the pictures above...

  • Jan 10, 2021 | 08:13 10 Love the pics of your 830 !!! The first tractor I learned to drive was a 1956 JD model 60. Spent a lot of time baling hay with that old girl, and it never let us down. hundreds of hours of pto work was done with that tractor. After that it was a JD 3020, which was a real step up from the old hand clutch. Now I have a 1964 JD 4020 , which has had a " working restoration" done to it ( rebuilt motor , clutch, repainted hood, etc ), and I want to do a 12 volt conversion to the charging system this winter. here's hoping !

    My Dad had a 830 back in the late 60's. He said it was a damn powerful tractor for a 2 cylinder.



    These are the topics I like to see on here at Agriville. Reply With Quote

  • Jan 10, 2021 | 10:49 18 Picked up this 435 to play with since I can't go to Az. Never been a John Deere guy, but am a fan of Detroit Diesel 2 stroke engines. JD 435 was built for 2 years with a 2 53 GM engine.

    In 20 years the operator of that tractor would be saying "pardon" a lot.

    Come to think about it, most of us are. Reply With Quote

    Never heard of that model before. Would it be a “Jimmy Deere” then? Still got a couple old Detroits in use around here. Ear muffs and extra oil are necessary for them.

    Very cool🍀 Reply With Quote

    Flying would be cool. I don't know if I'd want to spray with a plane but recreational flying would be cool. Reply With Quote

    Looks like one those guys who could screw a snake in a rock pile. They had some top line angus genetics but looked like a good source of stories for the Billings Gazette. Enough of those purebred operations that went toes up over the years from expansions and needless crookery involved in the purebred industry. Billings gazette has lots of info. Reply With Quote
    Jan 10, 2021 | 18:00 30 Those spray plane guys just love living on the edge. I enjoy flying on those nice clear calm days when you can see for miles. Its pretty neat seeing all the scenery from the air. Does anyone on here have some planes parked in the back 40 by chance? We enjoyed fixing this one so much we would like to do a high wing next. Though its not cheap for parts, I thought JD parts were bad. Reply With Quote
