That place must have been a bit of a eye opener

did you say it was sw kansas your family went to Dave? I worked out of setanta for a bit when I worked on harvest crew out their.

Yes. My relatives farm at Lakin which is also where the feedlot pictures are taken. The Versatile with the big sweep plow is at Deerfield, the last shot is at a completely different farm owned by one of my relatives' in-laws near Syracuse. All places basically along Highway 50 between Garden City and the Colorado border.
The last shot was drilling wheat with a 40ft JD box drill. The picture was actually taken while riding on the drill. There were two outfits working in tandem drilling the same field. I thought I had more pictures to hand but it was pre digital cameras and that's all that's on Photobucket at the moment.


im not a deere man but from memory jd 2030 had mechanical 4 wheel drive whilst 2130 and 3130 had the hydraulic 4 wd,??

You could get the mechanical front axles on the 2130 and 3130, quite soon after the hydraulic was introduced. It never took off, took to much power to do nothing.
