I don't know about Farm Show. I don't read that much. I do remember seeing a featured story in Successful Farming back around 1975 and again, in 1984, where a farmer in Iowa made just that on a 7700 and later an 8820, respectively. Like you, I was also very impressed by his engineering and design skills.

Yes, it is the one that was in a magazine about 20 years ago. If anyone has that I would love to get a copy of it.

I have only had the machine for a couple years but it sure has been a good reliable machine for me. I only have about 250 acres but for the last 2 years have had only a couple hours downtime during the whole season. I do take really good care of it and go over it really thoroughly every winter. Have spent about $500-$1000 a year on repairs-but that is way cheaper than paying to have it done....and a lot of fun to work on anyway.

Here is my writeup on the rebuild:
