Has anyone watched the PBS program dust bowl?? Its amazing all the hard ships and struggle they went through back in the day. As well as the stories the remaining kids still hardly remember of brothers and sisters dying, and family and neighbors committing suicide.

Quite a few Case machines in the show as well. There was a tractor and a harvester at a shot of the town at the dealership.

I saw it last night, I to had seen it before. The Big Dust storm of April of 1935 I was six months old. My Mother told me she put wetted tea towls over my crib and changed them every few minutes as the became black with dust. My Dad also put a rope between the house and barn to find his way. Here are a few pictures of me and my folks place. The place was a half mi. north of Colton Ne and the Linclon Hwy six miles east of Sidney Ne

Jimmie,

You"re a couple years older than me. That looks like an International truck. My dad had a 1929 International "6 speed special" and it looked just like the one in your picture. I learned to drive it at 11 years old and hauled grain from John Deere 12 A combine.

It could be. In 1957 when I put my LA on LPG we bought a old 1928 INT six speed special( a lever on the floor shifted it to the second three. Put a LPG tank on it and used it until 1978. Paid $50 dollors to a neighbor for it and sold it for $2800. It is in the backgroud in this picture by it is a 1950 Dodge pickup.

Your LA is 2 tone. Did you paint it that way? I don't remember any LA with 2 tone paint.

I watched it tonight. The final episode will be next Tuesday, April 30th.

Most of the big tractors on tillage and combines were IHC 15-30s and 22-36s.

Just read in "Farm Collector" magazine of another closely related PBS documentary called Harvesting the High Plains. It is to be shown sometime this year. It used a bunch of vintage equipment from an agricultural museum in Gering, NE

I think Ive seen that series before. Very interesting, and hard to imagine what people went through. That was a generation that knew the value of what you have and to take care of it...something that seems lost nowdays.

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1964 JD 2010 Dsl - Part 2 - by Jim Nielsen. Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal. As a resul ... [Read Article]
