Looks like the 105 has cast drive hubs with claps that hold the rims on. Is that right. They also have different cabs and one is green and the other is white and the gas has bigger fuel tank. Great pictures.
No, not me, personally. I just know many collectors in various locations with the means of retrieving and hauling them home. This is just what I do like doing, though, just helping old combines get that second chance so badly needed for their continued survival.
Those old 95s and 105s in my opion where the best combines John Deere ever built. In the summer of 2004 i bought a 95 that had been sitting in a shed for 10 years and it started right up and drove home, Ive cut around 300 acres with it and the only troubles iv had was just a chain and one bearing. Thanks for posting the pics.
Looks like it was really wet when you were doing these. What part of the world are the pics from?
What kind of yield and how fast could you go?
No HHC either. Would be tough in my part of the world, but we never grew beans in the days of 95's. My Dad had a 95 gas and he thought he had died and went to heaven fron his 65 pull type! Although his was a PTO which beat the heck out of the engine type.
That’s funny because when I was about three years old I remember trying to crawl up the ladder of one of my Grandpa’s IH 453s. The 453s had a ladder that dropped down with your weight. Being little at the time my hands could fit in places a grown mans hand could not, so needless to say I had them in one of those places when I put all my weight on the ladder and ON both hands and wondering how I was going to get out of this one. It’s like you said THAT HURT! Good thing Dad was right there to pick me up some to let the weight off or I will still be there now. All this is after I had been told repeatly by my Dad and Grandpa to stay off so I wouldn’t get myself into that spot. I still look at those ladders today and laugh about that time. I can’t say it was my best memory like you can, but it sure stands out the most.
