  1. I wonder who had them on firs? My 1989 TR86 has Terrain Tracer and they started building them in 1985. Once you have it you won't want to be without it Dan.
  2. Gee, I hope it isn't me!
  3. About 10 years ago I rented a neighbor's 240 head hog finisher and I ground all my own feed for that. It was about 2 miles away. I had an ArtsWay 500 and usually had the 806 on it. In the winter I had the heat houser on it, and it got a little cold driving there and back! One time the 806 was on the planter so I had to use the 756 gas for a load. Seemed to take forever . Amazing what an extra 20 HP would do. Once I used the 5288, that made short work of that job. It would grind as fast as the auger would take it in.
  4. Depends how much oil you need. MY 950 planter on my 5288 has a Rawson hydraulic drive and I use the number 1 motor valve. But it only need 3 to 4 GPM of oil.The valve I use to lift it is #2 and fold/unfold with #3, and even with the fertilizer tanks full (400 gallons) it lifts it fine. I wouldn't want to run much more oil than what I'm using this way though. The blower for the seed hoppers is using a pto pump. My neighbor has a 7200 vacuum planter and a Rawson drive and he's using a Maxxum 140 tractor. We have his Rawson on 1, Blower on 2 and lift the planter with 3. But those tractors have around 30 gpm hydraulic pumps if not more.
  5. I set them so they just rub the disc openers. Could you borrow the swing gauge from a dealer?
  6. A few years ago I bought a selection of hose clamps from HyCapacity. I need to get my supply full again, and HyCapacity doesn't have them anymore. They are a good heavy duty clamp, brand name Kale on the outside. Googled Kale and apparently they are made in Turkey. I emailed them but don't know how that will turn out. Anyone know of any distributors that handle them? http://www.kaleclamp.com/_oldsite/en/products-wd9-worm-drive-hose-clamps.htm

  8. Try Dennis at 712-546-5397. Central Plains Diesel
  9. Just a goofy question. On the turn signal switch how is your lever mounted? Pointing left or right?. I'd say 90% of them I see are to the left. Probably wrong according to the arrows, but most people probably think of it as a car turn signal, up for right and down for left.
  10. I swapped the cluster from the 5288 in the 5488 just now and it's never flickered once. I bet I shifted it 100 times. Went to the other tach and it did it after two shifts. Maybe I should try the defective one in my 5288.
  11. 83 5288 and 82 5488 here. Both 2wd.
  12. The digital tach in my 5488 sometimes wants to return to rpm(default) if you have it set for mph or egt and it happens when I shift the shift lever between the low and high in the speed trans. Like between 3 and 4 or from 4 to 3 etc. I checked battery voltage and it's 13.9 or so. Doesn't matter on engine speed. I sent it to Ag Express and they replaced the keypad. I put it in a while ago and it still does it. Maybe should swap it with my 5288 and try it. Any other ideas?
  13. Well thanks for the replies guys. That explains why there is such a price difference. I need to resist my cheap Dutch instincts and go for the good ones I guess!
  14. Aren't you glad you use Dial? Don't you wish everyone did? 99 44/100% Pure (Ivory soap)
