Cowboy's 130

Thu Dec 21, 2006 8:26 am

:D Hey EZ I liked your 130 so much I had to get one :!:

I talked my Dad and little brother Tommy on going in on one :D For $2915 we got a fast hitch 130 with a back blade, right side plow of a hillside plow, disk, dump carry all, All fast hitch. Wow those are cool I don't know why the three point hitch cought on insted of this its great I love how easy it is now that its all greased up:!: Also came with a front blade in bad shape and a sickle bar mower :!: :!:

I also got my first christmass present ever from outside my family from Tobaccoman who sent me a replacement rockshaft arm we needed for the one that was broken and a bunch of stuff was welded to and unuseable :{_}: Thanks Santa Yarnell :!: Me my Dad and Brother hope to meet you and thank you in person.

It was hard to plow and disk in the frost and mud but we tried it out and the kids had a great time :!:

Top My brother Timmy and his son Chase
Middle my little brother Tommy
Bottom the rest of the Stuff!


I got 10.85 ton of stone. Hauled four ton of it back to my new shed in the carry all and dumped it. The cub was in the garage waiting to grade it out with the grader blade. After I pushed the pile down with the 130's front blade with weights and loaded tires it never even spun the wheels with as much stone as I could get on the blade! Great tractor

Very nice Billy! I notice in the bottom shot that your horse seems to be very curious about that strange "animal" in the driveway.

:D Thanks Allen. I can't wait to get it to the farm and put it to work :!: My Uncles and cousins are going to be jelouse of the roads trails and deer food plots we are going to put in with it :!: :wink: 120 acres of woods should keep it busy. If not my cousin has a adjoining 80 and my uncle 360. Of which you can barly walk through :arrow:

:oops: Bigdog he is probally eyeing up the seat. So far he has eaten the seat off my snowmobile chewed up the steering wheel in my ford explorer and a couple of other little things. Oh yea he likes grabbing my fire wood and droping it in the field. Must think he's a big dog himself :wink:

8) Thanks Bill really looking forward to seeing you too :!:

Wow what a trip to go get it in VA. left here at 10:30 am got down there at 9:30 pm. Loaded it on the trailer we borrowed and found the front main leaf spring was broken off. :oops: Put a heavy duty 2" rachet strap from the front axel to the center spring support tightened it up enough to lift the rear axel off the trailer frame a inch and drove it home :!: Took my Dads v-6 f-150. Truck was a little small for the job going up some of those grade it was in 2nd gear enging just a roarin' for six or seven miles till we'd get to the top. Although it was a beautifll drive going up and down 77. Worth the drive for the senery.

Billy, that is a good find. The reason the 3 point hitch caught on over the fast hitch was the fault if IH management. They refused to license other manufacturers to make it or implements for it, while Ferguson let any use the 3 point that wanted (for a fee).

General availability of the 3-point system came out of the Ford/Ferguson law suit. I believe after thet it was available for no fee.

Now THAT is a very nice, and handy tractor!!! You will find all kinds of uses for it with that many implements to word with! thanks; sonny

That is a mighty fine lookin' 130 for sure.
I like that carry-all. Does it dump too?

Mine is parked in the shed for now. I hope to start restoring it later on this winter.

:D Hi EZ

The carry dumps I took a few pictures for you. It appears to be home made. I have to set it on the ground to pull the pin for it to dump. I think I can reengeneer it so ti works better without much problem. It also needs to be shortened up to bring it closer to the rear tires as it can only pickup half a bucket load of stone at a time.

Thanks all I need now is one of them mooses

:D Thanks Spiveyman

We would have been kicking ourselves if we had not gotton it. The Guy we outbid was mad. We put in out bid and by time it got through my dial up their was 14 seconds left and he did not have time to rebid. Altough he would not have gotten even if he had had time. The most he over bid was $300 at a time the tractor went for $2915 but our last bid was $5250 which was more then $2000 over wat the tractor was going for at the time.

Looks like a good scoop.

Thanks for the pics.

As for the mooses, if you have an overhead projector, or an opaque projector you should be able to make a couple.

All the Best,
