    the ugly hole in the hood is because it has a M&W turbo on it so the previous owner did a sh*tty job re-locating the pipe...thats getting fixed before the paint goes on

    heres 1 last one with the 10' disk...and an old girl that was at a local plow day

    hey we run Deeres too....run what you can afford...thats the showing of true farmers

    i told my buddy I'm going to hook my 886 to his 4020 but he is too afraid my baby will pull his all around town

    hey Deere9670....i always thought "if its NOT red leave it in the shed"...or "only a Magnum can kill a Deere"

    The 4020 was the best tractor Deere ever made! Now lets compare apples to apples now, I dont think the 886 against the 4020 is fair! The 4020 got a turbo?

    no the 4020 doesn't, but the 886 originally didn't either...the 4020 weighs in around (rough estimate) 9000lbs + it has filled tires....the 886 weighs in around 10,000 + it has filled tires...so it might be an even match, his has better tread on the tires too

    Chain em up, and pull like hell! Let me know how it turns out!:drinkup If I could ever find my camera usb cable, I would post some pics of all the tractors up at our farm. Right now we got a 4560,4960(with triples),
    8760 (4wd), a 5410, an A and an old worn out 4020. I not a red hater as much as you think, actually all of our tillage tools are all red! We buy John Deere because of our dealers support and parts:usa Right now for the past 3 days straight I have been on the 4560 with a cultivator working up all the washed out gullies:pointhead I think Im gonna go lay down now because my head is soar from hitting the roof so many times:bash

    we plant that for a local restaurant owner...we put a corn maze in there...double plant the corn and cut paths...its a real cash cow

    its the second year of doing this, we had to moldboard it last year...full of poison and root balls, this year it chiseled up pretty nice

    its a chisel on the 4020 and a 10' disk and packer on my tractor...I'll get more videos around hay season

    I would post some mine but will have to scan them in first. My favorite all time was the 3788. I loved running that tractor. I prefered it over the 8450's we also had.

    That restoration on the 1486 is outstanding.
