    Default First post, pics of some of my old D6

    First attempt at posting, usually just read and follow along. The cats were all setting in a row so I thought it was good time for a picture.3F5CA2D5-7554-454A-A7B0-400475779B1A.jpgBB2D56FF-61B2-4A82-A25D-BF7B7228BF43.jpgA6EE5778-4A83-44FC-9D2D-4AED82235B17.jpg79F3E473-E1E4-46F0-951D-618F28549424.jpg6126CAF6-4DB8-4190-B905-F0BD1EFE02FA.jpg

    Nice working tractors! Thanks for posting. I think the longest running thread ever is farming with steel tracks. I don't know if you ever saw that one from a few years ago?

    Which do you like the best, the turbocharged Caterpillars or the Detroit Diesel conversion? I imagine the DD runs a little faster or if loaded heavy, has to pull in a lower gear because of the rpm difference.

    Thanks for the pictures we farmer types even get away talking about the equipment we pull with a Cat as well as the crops we grow sometime.


    But I think that puts the construction types to sleep in the big cloud of our dust, cause we always forget to run the water truck.

    A 6-71 in a 4R D6? I'll bet that will do sprocketees (wheelies) every time the clutch is pulled. LOL. 20mph in 5th gear???? That guy will run with cousin Tad's "Power-No-Shift" (HD11). That is quite a line up. Very nice.

    Thanks for sharing and welcome to the group. I like it! A different tractor for each task. Itís nice when one does not have to change implements. More photos please! JM

    I believe thatís a 4-71 Detroit, it is fairly common to find 4Rs with a 4-71 in these parts. Also pretty common to find a 4R tub with a 9U engine.

    These 4 are all a bit different, the 1941 4R is repowered with a 6-71 Detroit but has what I would consider slow ag gearing so I do not notice much ground speed difference, maybe I am not running the General Motors Diesel fast enough?
    The 1957 9U with the yellow cab originally had a hard nose blade attached, normal slow gearing. Turbo and grader kit upgrades.
    The 1956 9U with the white cab also has a turbo and pump upgrades, set to run 1800 rpm. It has fast tranny gears, 2nd seems about like 4th in the others, has skyline hydraulic system.
    The 98J is a 1976 model, just got this one this spring, only put about 10 hours on it and drive train looks good but undercarriage pretty worn out. It is a six speed SA tractor, always kinda wanted one and now I guess I have one. I like any old tractor so no real favorites.
