I took this picture yesterday while driving at 65 mph so it's not great but I thought I would share it anyway. This is the Seed Hawk factory, the tank behind the toolbar on the left side is the 980 like we have in FS.....I was trying to get the whole thing but this was what I got lol. Next time I go by I will make a point of stopping to get some better pics.

I can't say that it never crossed my mind mdoss lol but then I would have to come back and get the toolbar too and by then they might be on to me plus I would have to go to them and buy the computer to run everything so yeah unless I want a big lawn ornament that could put me in the crowbar hotel for a long time I think maybe not
last night on the way home I spotted a Case Steiger hooked up to a Deere air cart and seeder and rollers after that... will try to get a pic tonight on the way home if it is still sitting there... looks impressive

That is actually what they call the bi-directional, they were originally made by versatile but must have ended up under the NH banner in one of the buy outs. They were the original reverse drive tractors and they were articulated as well, the seat and steering wheel rotates 180 degrees in the cab. They were really handy for loader work because the loader goes on the back so the visibility was good but at the same time kind of awkward because they are hydrostatic so forward and reverse is controlled by hand and you run the loader with your feet. So if you were used to a regular tractor where you run the loader with your hand and use clutch and brakes and then switch to that it's kind of bass akwards. My uncle had one of the very first ones when they were still versatile and they still have it.
Edit: when I first looked at the pic I thought it was the bi-directional but once I zoomed into it I realized it's a regular tractor with the super steer front axle.... like JohnDeere318 said I think it would be a T5..... but now I gave you a little history on the bi-directional too lol.

As promised more pics from the Seed Hawk factory. It had just poured rain so it was too wet to get out of my truck to get some better pics, also it was after hours so I wasn't able to get permission to walk around.
