  1. life in our corner

  2. life in our corner

    Story of my life....
  3. LAND RENT

    They own out there. About all thats any good frankly. Any farther west junk....but Frank's land.
  4. LAND RENT

    Here, NWWA, dairy farm grass/corn silage ground is $300-500/. Seed spud guys may give little more. Raspberries $800-1100/ with 10 year contracts. Well included. No water, poor ground out by The Sound (cooler) $200 be possible, but there is a reason there is 1000+ acres fallow out there now days.
  5. life in our corner

    We got about 2" last Friday. Gone by monday. This was near Yakima WA. 4.5 hrs s and east....huge tree fruit region. Friend sells this product to guys. Shade, bird nets, week cover, reflection paper etc. I thought he said they got like a inch and bang. Wetter early season stuff, wonder what it wt per foot? Then X 40 acres. Was his customers block....
  6. DRIVERLESS TRUCKS

    Amen..... The work aptitude thing.....that is the big problem with kids (adults) now days
  7. DRIVERLESS TRUCKS

    Hey, get your kids cdl licences and problem will go away. Every trucking co locally cannot find enough guys. From high end pay to steering wheel holders. A huuuuge chunk of society wont WORK. Only tap on a screen. Why i am penciling robot milking units now. 17 to 20/hr and hard or impossible to find guys. Gov't forced paid leaves and benefits are making machines more attractive. All the robotic tech is 100% b/c we have raised a lazy generation. Whom all think they are extra special and deeeesserve X pay for 30hrs a week since they are special. Mcdonalds locally had order screens not people now, app ordering and s special parking place to swing in a have given to you. Interesting change in our society
  8. life in our corner

    State Farm Bureau meeting. Membership up a shade. Mainly since we made it easier to renew imo. Ouch...guy did not get orchard covers off before he got snow. Its shade for apples so they dont sunburn. Total loss. Broke all trees and trellises.
  9. Save it

    https://wenatchee.craigslist.org/cto/d/1967-international-survivor/6382463233.html Aint it cute? About 4hr from me. Dry country...good resto candidate Not mine, just pointing out opportunity
  10. Shipping container vs enclosed trailer

    Guys out here build a nice gravel pad, set up 20 30, paint them all to match and rent em for mini storage fpr $65 to 100/month. CL here has tons. Roll up doors, man doors, windows, mobile office, tiny house. Insulated or not, 8' or 8'6" tall, 15 to 45'. Dang things are tough. China sends more stuff here than we send there. Being on west coast 1000s around. Heck i may be one of my circle of friends who doesn't have one. Be neat to have a 20' one for my stall lime/salt/bicarb/etc. Just set on ground pad of crushed gravel so drain good. https://bellingham.craigslist.org/search/sss?query=container&sort=rel
  11. Anybody have engine conversion in a superduty

    What year truck bigequip? 12v, man trans?
  12. Anybody have engine conversion in a superduty

    Yeah there are 7 compaines (iirc) making kits. Find some owners on forums to get info on what worked. Frankly from what i have seen locally "bullet proofing" seems to be a joke. Just buys few miles for alot of money. Imo There was a guy in farmshow mag who said he liked the swap but wasnt sure it was worth the work vs just getting another truck. What about a 471? Be fun and dif. http://www.depco.com/engines/detroitdiesel-471rc-engines-item-13507/
  13. 7120 no tach or gear indicator

    One of the 2 fuel sending units is bad is prob fuel guage issue. My 7140 and 8930 flash till below half then stable/read fine. Gear...thats odd. Dash maybe toast too....they are 25 years old machines
  14. Silage packing tractor?

    Skidder.... way too slow to move from job to job. 4386, slow, clunky, v8 not best reliable engine. Stieger be good....few year old stx be nice with shuttle. No 3pt is cheaper, just dill tires and still get nice pack. If in bunkers like here 200 ti 250 hp loader tractors are 99% of us. Can place it nicer than a blade. But what ever works, just wt and skill
  15. Project truck for someone.

    You're driving!
