We had 2 John Deere N spreaders, 1 4010D with a 48 loader, 1 4010D hauled and a 3010D hauled. Was my 2 older brothers and myself. In 2009, I restored a N for my hometown's 125th.

Over the years we had a couple manure spreaders- i think the first was a 40. Then we got a 54 because it was bigger and had an end gate. It worked well until the apron drive sprockets wouldn't grip the log chain apron properly. I think there were comments like that recently on here somewhere. For a while we had a JD skid loader. I believe it was a 125. I remember it was gas engine and had the cage enclosure for the operator. At the time it was an ok loader but not as nice as the Bobcat 763 it was replaced by. Currently I have a 370 spreader purchased at a farm sale around 3 years ago. Probably around 250 bushel capacity. It uses a hydraulic drive for the apron. And another hydraulic for the end gate. I find the hydraulic apron nice to shut apron drive off when crossing waterways or turning at the end of the field.

JD 780 hydra push.. It gets run every day for at least 4 months of the year.. probably one of the best used equipment investments ive made... the wide flotation tires are expensive to replace.. but other then that its been great..

We had a 44 spreader with full drum type beater during the late 1960's. I have a 148 loader mounted on a 4250 tractor currently. A couple neighbors had JD spreaders during the late 1960's/early 1970's.

I had a 34 and a 54 spreader. Bought a new 450 Hydra Push in 89. That thing was great. I was milking cows and hauling every day. It was self cleaning and had no apron. There were some real cold days hat I'd have to throw a couple of pails of hot water in it to get the floor loose, but it was one of the best spreaders I ever had. I gave $4265 for it with used truck tires on it. Things like that just got priced way beyond reason over the years since.

In my mind a big reason for the demise of the small farmer. Milk production was a very gradual increase on most farms and prices were near constant for many months on end. The cost of equipment greatly out paced income. A 1972 4020 cost 10,000 dollars and a 1980 4040 was double that. Dad paid 3,500 dollars (I've seen the invoice) for a 2 row IH chopper model 50 in 1964 and the neighbor paid 7,800 dollar for a 2 row IH chopper model 720 in 1977. Four row planter was 1,500 dollars in 1970 and 4 times that by 1980. A farmer had to be quite the bargain hunter in order to buy the equipment he needed at a price he could afford. Most farmers did not enjoy the chase.

My uncle bought a new 4010 and F145 four bottom plow in 1961 for $6000. I bought an open platform 4040 in 81 for $22,900. I priced a new 7110 ? (I believe it was), couldn't tell you what year, time goes by fast, but it was when they came out. North of $60,000. No way I'll ever have a new tractor again. I bought three new round balers. Gave $5500 for the first one, $12,500 for the second and $18,500 for the third. New ones now are priced way beyond my capability too.

We have a 46A loader on a 3020 and have two 44 manure spreaders. One has the single beater drum style and the other is a triple beater model. I like the triple beater for how nice it spreads with no piles. I have also owned a 40,54 and a 465 barrel spreader spreader with the rotor and chains as well as most every loader Deere made before the 80's. Tom
