  2. greenie weenie quadtrac question

    I dont have any concrete figures either but i know sum people and what they do........million a month may be and probably is on the conservative side ...depends how the accounting is done and what dept pays for what..... Deere recently bought Haggie or a controling interest in them. They are excited to have access to a bigger dealer network, so i have heard. Wonder how long the excitement will last lol.

  4. ether button mistaken for starter

    Too much ether can lock em up till it disapates my bet is in a day or 2 it will start fine. Bye the way improper ether use can also stretch head bolts. And NEVER use ether and glow plugs together.
  5. Drawbar reinforcement ??

    Ya and will keep you from bending your drawbar in half when you forget its hooked up like that.....at least i know i would sooner or later
  6. Question for overseas folks on your metric sockets

    I work in a deere facility in the heart of the midwest and i believe its all metric, i dont work on the assembly line so i could be wrong it might be a mix of both as Gm used to do. I can use both but still much prefer standard.

    Neat picture for sure.
  8. Can a Bent Grain Auger be fixed?

    Ya most manufactures of anything are. If you check around with places like shoup ect my bet is you can find other new parts that will work much cheaper. Or cut it out and splice it as others have said. Im guessing that will be your cheapest option. Probably wont take any more time than tearing apart and putting new parts in. Might even take less time.
  9. Air Conditioning for ICB Cab

    Reddot is on several big all terrain fork lifts at work.
  10. Anyone else working on theirs?

    Seems like every year is the 3rd biggest crop........
  11. First bto auction

    Older fella has rented a house and farm for pretty much as long as i can remember (I'm 51) and i think his father before him rented it as well. Few years back current owner (or heirs of) came to a neighbor of his, not a bto but bigger than old guy and wanted to know if he wanted to rent the ground and what he would pay. He asked if Dick had given it up. They stamered and finally said no he hadnt. He said well heck no im not gonna bid on it long as Dick is still farming it. In my fathers day that would have been the common reaction.......now not so much.
  12. Two point hitch

    I usually back up a bit and try to get mine to latch before i pick anything up.
  13. Gotta love farmer ingenuity!

    Lol
  14. Pole barn header

    I dont think you will regret going 14' high but may regret not going 16 later. Out of curiosity did you happen to ask about 16' as well?
  15. Original Hydro 100 blackstripe in excellent shape

    Same add i saw. My guess is somebody did pay 12 or so for it and now thinks they are gonna cash in.
