A neighbor was selling an IH (McCormick-Deering branded) Number 5 side delivery rake. I don’t really need the rake, but part of restoring old tractors is having matching implements and equipment.
I have a good amount of John Deere implements, but I don’t have a lot from IH and some of the other brands I have. So, I thought it’d be fun to pick it up and match it up. I also thought it’d be fun to use a Farmall (IH, or International Harvester) tractor to pick it up and bring it home. As I mentioned earlier I don’t really have a ‘need’ for it–but hopefully I’ll be able to find some excuses to use it this summer and make a few videos while in the process. 🙂
