  1. Poor UPS service

    What is up with UPS. They have lost or miss shipped eight packages in the last few months. Spent two days tracking some parts that we needed today. 15 days from Illinois to Nebraska. The parts are in Pa. Gal told me i could pick them up there' at their depot. I blew up over that' statement. Told her i should have just drove to Illinois and got them One before that' was 4 new tires for my trencher. Only took 2 months and 50 calls to find them. I think it helped when they saw what they cost. Another shippment the tracking number just vanished from their system. It was an overnight shippment from kansas city to omaha. Last spot it showed was ohio. Today i spent half the day tracking down another package. Im just done with them.
  2. Poor UPS service

    I have had other people tell me the same thing. I can get packages from amazon in a day but it takes weeks to get other packages. I would say 5 billion profit on 61 billion is a pretty good profit margin

  5. Pressure ,well water tank ,making noise ?

    I thought about the pressure tank but he said the pump is not running a lot. If the bladder broke every time he used a little water the pump usally kicks on.

    This is the only unintelligent post. That' person (and i will not call him a man) walked off his post. Thats a fact. He needs to man up.
  7. Bergdahl court martial acquital

    I think most of the the people on this fòrum feel the same way you do. He walked off his post and put the lives of many people at risk. He should be out before a firing squad.
  8. What to do with old tires ???

    Grind them up. And use them in a septic system laterial. Took two semi loads to a place that' grinds tires. Cost about 75 cents a tire

  11. Poor UPS service

    How do you wreck a 38x18x20 16 ply logger tire. They lost all 4 for two months and when they did show up one was wrecked. Had to get another one. Still waiting on that' claim Girl friend wants to do damage to the UPS guys because of several things. We are redoing our house and i built new kitchen cabinets. I sent the upper doors to a friend to have family pictures burned in to the doors. Two doors were in each box wrapped in plàstic and the HEAVY box was filled with expansión foam. I Shipped them to him the same way fed ex and no problem. I ve got 4 of the 9 boxes back by ups and 3 of the boxes look like a D8 cat ran over them. The other ones have not come. So i dont know how many doors i have to remake. It took him a long time to burns pictures let alone the time to build them. Since i built them ups says to bad
  12. Pressure ,well water tank ,making noise ?

    He can check to see if he has a hole in pipe by how long it takes to start to increase pressure in tank. Pump would have to fill line first. Pump could also be sitting above water line and pumping some air. Could be balder but usally after a couple cycles the tank water logs and pump kicks on all the time
  13. Retirement

    I DO NOT want to go to an old folks home. Wish it was legal just to put me to sleep at that' point. Funny its against the law to end the suffering for humans. But you would be in trouble if you let an animal suffer
  14. Pressure ,well water tank ,making noise ?

    A lot of things could be wrong. A lot depènds on what type of pump and how deep the well is. Im just looking at the cheapest fix and the most often cause. He could have a small pin hole in the pipe between the well and pressure tank. With out seeing the well pump and pressure tank its a guess
  15. Pressure ,well water tank ,making noise ?

    Some wells do not have a foot valve. Or they went bad a long time a go I could be wrong but as a little water leaks from the pressure tank back into the well. That' water needs to replaced by air in the well and that' is what he is hearing
  16. Pressure ,well water tank ,making noise ?

    If the bladder was bad the pump would run often
  17. Retirement

    Tony i feel the same way you do.
  18. Pressure ,well water tank ,making noise ?

    That should be it. If that' is the side that goes to the well
  19. Pressure ,well water tank ,making noise ?

    I think you have a check valve leaking. Letting the water flow back into the well
  20. Again and again

    I am Not to worried when im at church or any other place when im near home. Shooter might get one shot off. Then he would have more holes in him than a sprinkler can. About everyone i know carries a Gun. Be dam stupid not to the way things are. Gun free zones are a joke. Look at where all the shootings have happen in the last few years. GUN FREE ZONES
  21. Farm subsidy programs

    Its just the other way in my àrea All the mega farmers went broke in the 80s because of bad management. PCA FLB and other banks forgave their debit and they restarted farming as big as before debit free. Mean while the smaller guy got sold out or paid their debit to the bank. I paid every dime back i owed with interest. Dont want to hear about mega farms being better mànagers. Several mega farms owe me a lot of money
  22. Down Corn

    From what you said you must be baling the corn stalks for cattle feed. Do you plant on ridges? Have some friends just east of you and they ridge till and always split the ridges and that' buries a lot of ears . Do you do most your tillage in the fall if so i would disc it and at least let some decay over the winter and then it would start to grow early in the spring you could field cultivate before planting
  23. 1206 prices??!!

    This àrea calls anything that' does not have a 3pt pto a standard with those things we call them row crop. Might not be correct wording. His dad bought the tractor new. It is a 5010 Thats what tires that were on it when he got it new. Factory or dealer added they were on there. There' were several 5010 sold like his in the area The only thing done was he added an Egging Cab a few years later From all data i can find the 5020 was introduced in 1965
  24. 1206 prices??!!

    Best way to tell the difference between a 5010 and 5020 is the rear end. A lot of 5010 motors have been replaced with 5020 motors or screaming jimmies.
