  1. More play than actual work, but finally dry enough to get a couple fields nocked down. Our extended wet season (nothing like out west) meant this stuff is very weedy and thick. Was a good opportunity to work the ODS6 for the fist time. Third gear, six foot brush hog, thick field and some hills made the old girl snort.

  5. There hasn’t been a video posted in a while. The other night I came across this interesting WD45 ad. There are quite a few AC promos being posted on YouTube and I will say I enjoy them almost nearly as much as the IH films. But it’s not quite the same as their different colors?

  6. I happened to see a tractor with cultivator almost 100 miles from home with a for sale sign on it. Was priced a little high at $2000, but it was what I was wanting. I agreed to the price and said I would be back tomorrow and would he hold it? He asked for faith money. All I had with me was a 100 dollar bill two fives and some change. Told him I would leave the 100 but I needed to eat on the way home so I am keeping the fivers. He said it wasn't enough as he had lots of people interested in that tractor. I told him that I thought we were both honest people and if I didn't get back tomor

  7. Well, it finally dried up here and we went to the field on Monday. Rained again late today. Supposed to be more on the way. Unfortunately, the 4586 is still in the shop, but with rain there is still a chance we might get it finished in time to use putting out the crop. Got all the hydraulic hoses changed that were failing, new AC hoses made (HVAC not done yet) and the wiring just almost done. (Just need to put ends on the fuel pump wires and finish the radio install.) Still waiting on decals and some odds and ends to finish it up. Probably 5 more days of work to be done. Before w

  10. I hopefully will be done tomorrow afternoon before the rain. I like the tank trailer you made, looks really handy. First corn looks good for what it has gone through.

  11. Guys, I promise pics and video of her in the field! But it will probably be in the fall, if we can use it then. Field work has ran a week now, and although we have 1000 acres to go, I doubt we get to use it this spring. Unless it rains us out, I doubt I get it done to use this spring. Very disappointed, but at least when it is done, it will be done right, done well, and should run and work great!

  13. Technically you could run both right hand steering arms, but your toe-in would be difficult, if not impossible to adjust to where it should be. It's hard to tell by looking, but the splines are cut pretty much opposite each other on the right and left side arms, if I remember correctly. This will put one arm close to the tire and the other would be correct. Btw...just my opinion, but these arms are money well spent. (although there still is a right and left, lol) Travis

  14. Well the sick corn looks ok. Not perfect but rebounding. CHS guy has looked at it few times and says he is still comfortable leaving it. He has rec some guys plow it up also so not being one sided and hes married to kin so I know him. Got 2nd in this week...eagle there in pic did my WaSt Farm Bureau meeting in Leavenworth wa. Seen this guy on side road on pass when i stopped to pee quick! I think griz..he was tall as headlights sitting on butt. Hump on shoulders and right color.

  19. Cool and cloudy day with plenty of wind. Started out in the low 40s with a high about 60F Well below normal for this time of year. Hope it does not get any colder (frost!!) I got out for a few pictures. Tried my hand at a "pano" shot of the Merc out in my earliest wheat field. There is some serious volounteer canola showing up now.

  20. Lots of places you can take a leak in your front yard, but there is only one house that was your great grandparents. Family farms and family history are very important, and once that farm is gone, it's probably for good. I'm in a spot about like you, Sledgehammer... in IL, and a little too close to suburbia for my tastes, but I hope the only way they ever drag me off this place is with a hearse

  24. I’m not in TX (although it sounds nice) but I can tell you coming from an AG job to an hourly job, it’s less stress on me. Used to be working somewhere between 65-100hrs a week during busy times to an hourly job and a quitting time. If I work extra I actually get paid for it. I leave work at the gate when I leave and pick it up when I come back. That has helped me a lot.

  25. I'm not sure if a powershift transmission is really anything to be afraid of. I've watched videos of powershift transmissions being taken apart and reassembled, and they seem to be mostly steel baskets filled with fiber and steel disks, separated by planetary gears. The key seems to be paying attention to how it comes apart, and keeping things clean.

  27. I know it can be done and I very much respect those who do, but I’m living in my Great Grandparents house that Ive wanted to live in since I was 10 years old. Century farm on the end of a dead end road. I don’t mean to sound crude but I can pee outside, shoot guns any direction, and raise my son to love and respect the outdoors. Nearest neighbor is about 1/2 mile away. I could not trade what I have here for a fraction of it anywhere else. At least I work in Indiana.....

  29. I'm just putting a bunch of photos of D-Day, June 6,1944 on. I probably don't know any more about them than you do. Since that was 75 years ago today, I guess we weren't very old, Anson, were we? My wife was born 7 days later on the 13th. You all know I talk with photos. I actually wave my hands with my 1/4 Italian blood, but you guys can't see that. The aircraft markings for the invasion, so the Allies would recognize OUR planes, as shown on the P-38 Lightening. The Canadian forces going ashore. Neutr

  37. In -Some- of the pictures posted here recently there appears to be the cloud of brown colored Dust coming off of the equipment and tires. I don't have any of that dirty looking Dust stuff here. My air filters are going to be so clean.

  38. Thanks for the comments gents. I hadn't had anything to update. We have been waiting on parts and the painter. We got the new wiring harnesses from Porch Electric last week and got them installed. I'll get some pictures up of that when I get the chance. I need to update them on some information because this was the first time they had made the engine harness and the short front harness for the headlights and A/C switches. They had to copy our old harness, which was damaged pretty bad and missing some ends and segments, but they did a great job! We got the cab and hoods back

  41. Had an M with an old trip bucket loader for sale this spring. Decent tractor but nothing special, listed it on Facebook for $1200, which was a very reasonable price for M in this area but just wanted to move it, normally a $1500 tractor here,guy messaged me all hot and bothered that he wanted it and wanted to come right away so he shows up 2 days later and looks at it and drives it back and forth maybe 25 feet and didn’t try the loader at all and then says he’s actually buying it for a buddy and his buddy only sent $900 with so would I take that. I told him the lowest I’d go would be $1050 but
