We found a picture of one of the 2 DCs originally owned by my great grandfather. One had Eagle Hitch and the other did not. The eagle hitch tractor came with a model BER plow and a EH subsoiler (we still have the subsoiler).

I threw in a few other photos as well.

Thank you for the replies. The grinder is not a Case but rather a 3rd party brand like a Wards. Chuck, Looking forward to seeing you and Pastor John. I hope you brought your warm clothes!

Yes, they were both propane. The hand clutch was traded for the foot clutch as my great uncle had polio and could operate the foot clutch easier.

Nice looking Hampshire hogs. Did your family sell purebred breeding stock?

My uncle had a truck similar to the one in your picture. He had the habit of parking his pickup in the barnyard too. The cows had the mirrors knocked off right away, and used it as a scratching post. Then the sow's would chew off a couple tire valve stems off every now and then. The truck looked like it had been in a wreck. I could never understand why he abused his equipment like that. There was even a pregnant sow that got stuck under it on a hot summer day. My uncle had to use his DC and New Idea loader to raise one end of the truck up to get her out. He was a good farmer, but careless. A Holstein bull finally caught him alone in the barnyard and killed him.
