No he was not a relative , he lived about two miles from where my old shop was . and about 380 miles from where the tractor came from . Myself i don't buy tractors for senimetal values i buy them to make money and farm with my mistakes . My S/MTA was bought because i wanted one and when i bought it was cheap and needed little work to be good and it got painted because it was twenty years past needing a paint job . My first 706 that i bought was a three striker ( narrow ft., fast hitch , and NO PTO) and it was CHEAP i mean dirt cheap like 650 bucks. And it was a Gasser . I farmed with it for 12-13 years along with a Junk set of cut down 710 plows and a 13 foot 370 disc that i rebladed because it really needed blades . I bought a super nice 1240 J D plateless planter with monitor for 650 bucks and i had a Massey 300 combine that i bought for 650 bucks and a 22 corn head for 7.50 , yes that is correct seven dollars and fifty cents for a working corn head then the next year i added a cab for a 150 bucks to the combine and upgraded the charging system and added more lights to it out of two five gallon buckes of lights i bought at a sale for 2.50 . I had a super nice little combine that did a super job in corn and small grain and made MONEY combining for the small guys with little fields and little gates . I also opened up fields for guys that had pull type pickers , one round around the outside and one pass down the middel and charged twenty bucks travle and 24 and hour , when doing custom combining i charged 24 and acre as long as they could keep the grain away from me but if i had to set waiting to empty out they had fifteen min . then we went on the clock . In good corn that little old small combine could keep two 16 foot grain trucks and 6 Kill bros. gravity wagons and two tractors humping hauling seven miles as my one customer found out as the first year i did his he brought up a I H 1600 load star with a 16 foot midwest grain bed and his J D 4230 with two kill bros 350 boxes with the high sides and said that his son would be up as soon as he was done milking and by that time i might have the one filled Told him that i did not want to set and wait and he told me that they will be way ahead of me . well the first round next to the woods was a little light and i made it about three quarters of a way around the field and the bine was full and i had to pull out and go dump So while i was up by the road dumping when i finished i mover the tractor and wagons to the far end as i knew then i would not be ale to make a full round . Even with the walk back to the road and back in the seat and shelling i had everything filled including the bin when Rusty stopped back before his son got there to take the first load in . He went and got his brothers truck with the same bed but under a Ford another 4230 and two more 350 Kill bros. and borrowed two more plus got a neighbor kid to drive one of the tractors . i was shelling in 184 BPA corn and was dumping at both ends . That little 300 made me a bunch of money for under a grand investment . What i have done since 1983 was to make a living to keep a roof over our heads and feed my family . Try my best to treat people right and be fair .
