    The stuff that follows me home...

    There I was just minding my own business, stacking hay and wondering if there was any water left in the cooler when I looked and this thing had somehow appeared on the trailer.

    Well now I've got 14,700 lbs of Ford 8210 sitting in my yard.

    The owner just bought it, and while it runs and functions it needs a good mechanical once over. Lots of leaks, part of the hitch mechanism is jammed up, the cooling system is showing its age and the air conditioning doesn't work. I'm sure there will be other stuff, that's just what I know about now.

    Hoping to get into it after I make a little more progress on the shed.

    There are a lot of worse things to have sitting on your property!!

    That's pretty neat!!

    Good looking iron. I still like that older horsepower better than the current large tractors.

    I'm just going over it for the owner. I'd love to have something like this around, but right now the 5320 is about right.
