figured you guys would get a kick outta this picture...









I was helping my friend yesterday at his farm. I bush hogged while he was disking ground. In the middle of disking his 4020 ran out of fuel, he started to re-fuel and saw something leaking. So he flagged me down while I was mowing the front field (the one in the background of 1st pic), and we proceeded to pull the fuel tank and found a small pin hole. Pretty much ended his day, and it started to down pour so that ended my day.

The old H got a workout though, bush hogged almost 25 acre's.

Ironic thing is, He's an IH guy. Has a 706, 300 and all IH equipment. Guess the 4020 didnt like that he was wearing an IH shirt yesterday LOL.

The 4020 was part of the deal when his parents bought the farm.

Nothing wrong with a 4020 if you can get that stupid gear shift to slop through all the slots to find a gear. I do like the cab that has real windows!

The hole kind of tells you where all his fuel went - that was an expensive day.

glad someone else feels the same way about that shifter. If I had to run green I would choose a 4020.

What size is the bushhog? Looks like it would be a load for an H!

7 foot Model 307 single spindle. Most of what I mowed yesterday was in 3rd, thicker stuff I mowed in 2nd and flat ground I mowed in 4th all wide open throttle, once them blades get spinning its good to go.

I wouldn't want anything bigger behind the H though.

yup, 13.6's out back, tiny 5.50-16's up front. I got both those rear's from a friend for $450, they were like new. He bought them to put on his Ford but then sold the tractor.

They look good, I am planning for that size in the spring. I am looking forward to the extra road speed.

I have 600x16 on front already.

Thanks. If I can find a set of 6.00-16's for cheap I'm going to swap them out, its a little nose low with the 5.50's.

As much as you Red guys like to hack on the 4020, even a red one can have a leaky fuel tank... Wink
