  1. 3pt trailer hitch adapter

  2. 3pt trailer hitch adapter

    When I go out to do chores tonight I will take pics of the two we built. They are cat 2 pins, but heavy enough for cat 3 just can't use it on the 186 hydros then
  3. Old ihc pictures

    I really like seeing pictures with the old hip roof barns. Kind of an era that is coming to an end with so many in disrepair, wish I could have been around when many of them were built
  4. Tractor hours

    I guess in a way we are the same we have a 2001 case 60xt we bought new and just hit 1000 hrs this winter
  5. Tractor hours

    Yeah we do have a 6788 and it only gets used to run silage chopper, stalk chopper, and grain auger, it's a pita to use. So it only gets about 250 hours a year. A lot of idle time on it when on the auger start it in the morning and it just idles all day
  6. Tractor hours

    I was thinking about this while warming up my tractor today, how can there be these 40 year old tractors with such low hours? Are guys just letting them sit in a shed and never start them? Mine sits and idles while warming up or when doing odd jobs it probably idles at least 100 hours a year, not counting any use I put about 700 a year on my tractor and it doesn't get used that much a few chores and haying is about it. I just don't see how a person can have these old tractors with only 2000 to 3000 hours on them total
  7. maxxum 125 tractor

    The loaders come off about as fast as you can take the bucket off. The new loaders have all the hoses together so you can unhook them all that the same time very slick and fast
  8. Mx135

    Not much for electrical problems but they do have a few clutch pack issues, but this usually doesn't appear til that 7-8000 hour range. They also could have had a heavier pto if used a lot the pto can give some problems. We have a mx120 with around 26,000 hours number 1 and 4 power shift don't function and the pto doesn't work but engine has never been touched.
  9. ground/chopped hay in feed

    We feed silage to our calves in feed bunks with the loader bucket twice a day then we put pails of grain on top of that grain is 2/3 oats and 1/3 corn. they have free range to the brome alfalfa hay mix in round bale feeders. This is how we feed our calves that we are backgrounding, this program works very well for us. the calves get 30 pails of grain for 150 head.

    They are pretty decent tractors. Just make sure it has the heavier class 4 front end for loader work, otherwise they are nice tractors
  11. Combine differences

    Looking into buying a combine what are the differences between a 1680 and 1688 besides the age? 1688's seem to bring quite abut more money then the 1680s
  12. 1985 s2300

    I have a 1985 S2300 single axle truck and it has two fuel tanks, my question is my fuel gauge reads 1/2 full all the time. Just wondering what is possibly wrong? Is it the gauge and if it is how do I check that, or I do I check the sending unit and in which tank is it in? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated
  13. Feeding cornstalk bales to cows

    We feed about 400 to 500 corn stalk bales per year, we tip them on end put about 5 gal of molasses on them, let it soak in good for a couple days and then run them through a tub grinder with the rest of our hay. the cows clean everything right up, they work great if put up dry too many people in my area dry and hurry the process of baling and the bales aren't near as good, they are very tough grinding if put up too wet.
  14. Trucking quotes

    I'm not sure I don't have all the details yet. he just told me its at mobridge and was wondering what I would charge to go get it. he said if he is going to pay someone to truck it he would just as soon me do it over a trucking outfit. I work with him all the time on other stuff around the farm too.
