  1. cost of hauling milk grassland again!

    They raised our rates as well, but I don't recall the price. We are under the minimum so it won't change much from what they had been charging.
  2. shelled corn in agbag

    If your plan is to feed it, run it through a roller mill and store it wet. Plan to feed six inches per day in colder months and a foot per day during hot months. I have ground it dry with my feed mixer mill and it works ok, but the wind blows it more than I like.
  3. 666 pulling question

    I've pulled my diesel 686 in 7500. Narrow front, strip the 3-point. Otherwise goes right in. 6500 is doable, but you're gonna have to work. Pressed wheels, strip the fenders and 3-point, narrow front. You should save a couple hundred pounds already with the gas engine.
  4. "RD" pump vs Roosa Master in 806

    We've got just one with the RD pump, and it sure seems gutsy. But the Roosamaster pumps have a lot of potential, with bigger heads and such.
  5. Farming after heart surgery??

    Rehab is your friend! Do as the doctor tells you and you will heal up. Remember that they cut open some major bone and muscle structure to get to your heart so that needs to heal.
  6. Filling lawn depressions?

    We've been pretty lucky with all the rain this year, as our farm sits high enough to not flood or wash out. But one problem we had from 6-7 inches of rain in a day was our lawn sank where the old house was buried. It's probably six inches lower than it should be. Is there any way to fill it over time without reseeding it? I've also got a young tree in that spot. Can I maybe sprinkle some sand on it, let the grass recover, and repeat? Or should I just throw some black dirt and or compost on it and seed it?
  7. 686 engine swap

    You need front and rear mounts, probably oil pan, and make something work for the exhaust. If you are pulling, get a good clutch, and either eliminate the TA or put a HD unit in.
  8. 2+2 Questions

    I would think the PTO and hyd valves would be the same as a 3688
  9. 806 - Convert fast hitch?

    You could also save some time by locking the fast hitch rigid. Just below the rockshaft should be a couple brackets that the lift arms can be placed in. It won't be quite as sturdy as a normal drawbar, but you can safely pull wagons with it that way.
  10. Tire width science or preference ?

    If it was me, I'd run whatever size you can get cheap. A bigger tire may be more likely to spin on dry ground, but in wet dirt it will float better and get you out of a hole better. FWIW, I've got some 18.4-26 combine tires just sitting here collecting moss....
  11. 826--Cat 2 or 3 hitch?

    The 826 uses the smaller Cat. 2 linkages. I'm not sure if it would even have enough room to work with a spacer ring.

    I found the one I want!! I just have to find someone who will sell it to me. LOL
  13. New joke

    A man left work one Friday afternoon. Being payday, instead of going home, he stayed out the entire weekend hunting with the boys and spent his entire pay check. When he finally appeared at home, Sunday night, he was confronted by a very angry wife and was barraged for nearly two hours. Finally, his wife stopped the nagging and simply said to him, “How would you like it if you didn’t see me for two or three days?” To which he replied, “That would be fine with me!” Monday went by and he didn’t see his wife. Tuesday and Wednesday came and went with the same results. Thursday, the swelling went down just enough where he could see her a little out of the corner of his left eye.
  14. Choppers

    For those suggesting JD, just forget it. The 2 in our area have been unreliable, and dealer support sucks! We have as good a Gehl dealer as any- it was the largest Gehl dealer in WI, possibly the country. But that doesn't change the fact that they are out of production. The NH 790 is still built, correct? Are the new ones exactly the same as they have always been? What HP are they rated for? I'm not hearing much talk about a Uni- I'm starting to think there is a reason for that....
  15. Choppers

    He charges 305/hour (cutterhead) for the Claas, which really isn't bad. But by the time I pay 50-80 per truck (varies by size) on actual hours, and they end up sitting waiting for my bagger, it really adds up. He does have two wagons, and I pulled one this time, but the other is stuffed in the shed and rarely gets used.
