I finally had a chance to go and visit a Tractor Supply Co. store in Texas. After walking the aisles for a few minutes........I went and got a buggy! I was suprised to find ignition parts, carb kits, shift knobs, mufflers, pre-cut radiator hoses, pitman arms, and much more. Most had IH part numbers to reference. I haven't opened any of the packages yet, but they look like good quality. We sure need a store like this in my area. I don't think there is any in the state. I'll sure stop by again.

Oh, they also had the IT manuals, Ken Updike book, Guy Fay book, and a host of tractor books and magazines. (No Red Power though).

None in the state of LA. Plenty in AR, or east Texas, a good 3hr. drive. Never the less, a good store. :)

We just had one open in our town this year. I think there are only 2 in the whole state of CA.

Can't beat them! I'm at a TSC here in Central Ohio at least once a week. Buy all of my livestock feed there, too! I get their sale circular delivered via E-mail, and can peruse the bargains before I head out. I use the Blue Book ( their catalog) for a lot of good reference material.

I've got 3 of them in a 30 mile radius. The old ones are usually too small for all their stock, and are very cramped. But there is one new one here that is much larger and more shopper friendly. I like to walk the aisles and see all of the stuff you never see at any other type of store. Alot of the items in the tractor aisle are mysteries. I cant imagine what they are used for.

With farm equipment dealers getting few and far between TSC is a very valueable resource. They help keep prices down, and have a magazine rack full of old tractor books.
