Re: AC 7080
Great pictures Robert, I really like the older American
2WDs. I worked in Kansas for 8 months on a farm and the year
after 8 months for a custom harvester. On the farm they had
a JD 4640. Great machine. I pictured a lot of 2WDs, most I
put on this site.

I read at one of your pictures that you're from a area they
grow a lot of rice.
When do they plant rice and when do they harvest it?

Re: AC 7080
HI,
RICE IS PLANTED IN APRIL TO MID MAY.IT IS DRILLED IN A
SEEDBED SIMILAR TO WHEAT. AFTER THE RICE IS PLANTED,LEVEES
ARE SURVEYED WITH A LASER AND PULLED UP WITH A LEVEE DISC
FOR FLOODING AFTER THE RICE EMERGES.SOME FARMS HAVE FIELDS
PRECISION LEVELED FOR A MORE EFFECIENT FLOOD.THE RICE STAYS
ON A FLOOD UNTIL 10-14 DAYS PRIOR TO HARVEST.THEN,THE FIELDS
ARE DRAINED,AND HARVEST BEGINS IN MID AUGUST TILL EARLY
OCTOBER,DEPENDING ON TNE WEATHER.

Re: AC 7080
One of the first 7080 series is it. With that maroon red
chassis. Looks not very nice more. But its a tractor from
more then 25 years old.

THERE ARE NOT ANY AC's AROUND HERE ANY MORE.THIS LAST PIC
WAS TAKEN BACK IN THE EARLY 80's. THE FIRST PIC WAS AT A
LOCAL AUCTION I TOOK LAST MONTH.
IN THE LATE 70's AND EARLY 80's THERE WERE A FEW AC TRACTORS
AROUND.BEFORE ALL THE TRACTOR COMPANY MERGES,WE HAD:
JD,IH,CASE,AC,MF TRACTORS ALL AROUND. I REMEMBER OLIVERS AND
MM TRACTORS ALSO WORKING HERE BACK WHEN I WAS A KID. THANKS

ROBERT

Re: AC 7080
NO, NOT MY TRACTOR NOR DO I FARM.I GREW UP AND WORKED A FARM
WITH MY DAD. NOW I WORK IN TOWN IN AN AG RELATED INDUSTRY.
WOULD LIKE TO BE IN FARMING. BUT, I SETTLE JUST TAKING FARM
PICS.
AC TRACTOR WAS JUST A FARMER FRIEND OF MINE.
