So my wife and I were on our way home yesterday from dropping off a tractor and decided to take a back road home, keep in mind we live in the holy middle of nowhere mountains of NE Oregon, and out in the middle of a cow pasture I saw a weird looking "livestock" trailer. After blocking the road to get a closer look I realized that it was an OLD forage wagon from when this area was full of sheep. So seeing that have me an idea of starting a thread on here for the classic equipment that once was the modern standard and if able post a pic. If I can remember where I saw that forage wagon I'll go back and snap a pic to post.
Oh I only wish it was a 4020 lol. Maybe the best tractor JD ever made for all purpose farming. They are still expensive. This one is a 1020. I think around 45 hp. The planter is a 494a we also have a 10ft JD disc and a newer bucket tractor that's about 24 hp. So we have an all JD operation lol.

Oh wow it's a diesel?!? Huh, never knew that! Usually, there are a lot of those 3010 and 3020 gassers lying around, getting a tiny bit hard to find some 3010 and 3020 diesels. If you were to sell that 1020, I think you could get more for it, since it has the diesel engine in it.
Also, probably a good thing you guys have a 20 series, I was reading that the 10 series had PTO issues that needed extensive work.
