  5. New Tractor Shed Started ,Sept 7,17

    lookin good here that building would cost $75-85 K with factory/union labor tax would start at $150K value and if 1/3 larger and or actual business conducted, tax would start at $1K month with average $6K mo roughly $3 sq ft + land at $30K ac Jerry, we all have our crosses to bear; I DON"T HAVE TO WORRY MUCH ABOUT WHAT YOU MENTIONED . HOWEVER, YOU DON"T HAVE TO GO THROUGH ALL OUR BS TO BUILD AND DEAL WITH FIRE DEPARTMENT FOR FIRE PROTECTION AND PAY OUR HIGHER TAXES FOR EVERYTHING. also one local area had such a FM , would find problems with the dirt work and make months delays, unless lunch pail was extra tasty IIRC some nice boys from LV told him it was a good time for retirement. which was short. WHen fire/type work is required it is about nine weeks + out and done with few options not connected/ based in LV /chicago,we would schedule little or no other work to defray reason's for work stoppage.

  15. What to do with old tires ???

    mostly light field work and only necessary travel We were getting the firestone 23* and good year , first ones ok when we did our own silage (custom doesnt want to travel either) travel with EACH load ( 1200 T at <10T)was up to 20 miles with about 10m average. + winter running hay/cleanout other + hay and grain ,to the various farms. 6-8 help running equipment when 3 of those farms death spiraled into cidiot homes ,overall travel was cut in 1/2 with new avg about 7m but wear increased thru 3 good sets then to $ 2/3 sampson etc. with only 2 of us running equip ,would guestimate 3 oil changes and 700 road miles yr,,down from the full time /4-6 week maintenance every day road travel prior... field and hazard/mud/rock , moldboard travel is also down 2/3 have checked alignment and replaced parts 2-3x but still have even greater wear on front right..... because a BIG field is 8 ac and all travel is CW..?
  16. What to do with old tires ???

    for car/truck yes we pay the $4 fee on new purchase then $5 on used even if kept, BC they resell and or pocket the fee I take the worn ones from wagons and swap they cant resell and cant &^09 BC I paid the fee reputable (slim to none) recycle fee is $1- (tractor)$12 it is all a shell game,rather than increase price 5% and use quality materials they raised price 30% and cheapened materials 80% so they can get 3x profit/super fund on the crisis of too many used ones lying about tractor tires use to last 20 + years...lucky to get 3 yr on best radials last 5 sets

  20. T340 questions

    T340 1787 was off a little late first year plates are available about $45 would have to dig to find reputable dealer OEM use to have them Thanks for the location of the filter. What does the plate on the bottom of the case access? LPTO gear drive also for HOP belly pump I need to redo the control handles as they cause the valves to rotate as they move in and out. long term start looking at a new one cobbled to many times most parts NLA or $$$ Anybody have a spare 3 spool and control handles extra? these had a life cycle of 15-25 years + - many parts were considered wear items but lasted longer therefore no parts just new tech

  25. Carlisle tires

    I have a partial answer the compounds and process are crap no matter country or MFG govt and mfg want the $$$ slush funds cover it ,if anyone would ever succeed at a wrongful death win had 2 separate issues last year before looking at ANYTHING else ,truck would not pass inspection by 3 yr date on tires (unsafe) BS!&*%^ E rating 18K on 70K 6yr warranty. MFG has the 6yr warranty and devices for measuring.. anyhow they would not replace them (safe)....they are not DOT....still no inspection .. your certified miles says you did not go far enough to keep the compounds activated.... buy $50 ea nitrogen fill they will last 4 yrs....WTH ^&% ....bought the cheapest korean &^% and changed stations cattle trailer and equipment get about 600m a year and set out most of the year ....they did pass inspection however equipment tlr lost 6 in 2 months 4 being the matched set at 5 yrs the belts failed forcing 4x flex in side wall and 2x heat they then cut into the side and go off like a moose gun..I drive slow so usually no one to get hit and can go about 1/4m to safe pull off (if you feel an intermittent slight hop or odd weave it is not the bad PA roads, 1 replacement failed within 100m and another before 1K) what 3 independent dealers have told me 1 the compounds/materials are crap run them every week.to keep stimulated....(truck runs 365 between farms) 2 kevlar and similar only has a life of 6 yrs (the belts) 3 keep them inside jacked up and covered
