  1. Tools Explained: DRILL PRESS: A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it. WIRE WHEEL: Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you to say, 'Oh sh--!' SKILL SAW: A p

  4. Is that you get to see things in the daylight. I’m on a rotating shift that has me working nights once in a while. I finished my last night shift for a while and woke up to a pretty day outside. Spotted some deer working across the oats. About 20 minutes later I see a coyote trailing them. Had him in the cross hairs getting settled on the gun at 650yds and into the corn he went. Now, that is a long way off and far from a definite hit but I was going to try because you miss 100% of shots you don’t take. That would have almost doubled my personal best from the kitchen window of 340yds on the tr

  15. We ended up without power for just under 48 hrs. Hwy's ended up being closed but as soon as they were passable I took the wife and kids to mom and dad's to keep warm. Snow is already melting now. Just glad it wasn't -30 when it happened

  18. Massey's combine plant was sold off lock stock and barrel in 1989. They did sell rebadged Class combines for a short period but I don't know how long or how many models but it was before Agco bought them heres an 8450 made by Claas- before Agco owned Massey

  19. We took down acouple rollers today to get a look see at what was there..................I am not sure what I am going to do with them, pretty worn out. Not sure if I will waste time trying to bore for a bearing or not. We moved hangers around and put the two good ones at each end and the worn in the middle, works for now. My wife is away on a business trip in Germany so no time to play with them for the time being. But, I got the helpers with me.

  20. Friend of mine dad lost his arm to a plugged combine. Don't exactly know what happened. Occurred while I was in the Army. SIL's brother lost 2 fingers trying to unplug a chopper. He was 16 at the time. Be very careful. I gotta agree with Mark. Most of us have taken short cuts with no harm. Doesn't make it safe or smart. Rick

  22. On your German diesel , have the throttle in idle , pull the shutoff out until the first detent , this is the excess fuel area of the pump . Crank it over until it starts and let it run in that position until it starts to slow down , then push the lever into the run position and then you can start to increase the throttle on the tractor . Try to keep it up to operating temp on these motors , don't let them sit and idle a lot or they slobber bad , plug muffler up , unburned fuel in the cylinders and you don't want any of the above . For your 407 , full throttle until it starts then bring

  23. I guess I'll be like Diesel Doctor and go the other way with this. It is your choice, though. As somebody who has been in the diesel engine business for 30 years or better, I would venture to say the #1 issue that I have been paid WAY too much in both time and money over the years is...diesel fuel gelling problems. To me...this problem is completely preventable and completely unnecessary, so I have a lot of frustration with this. First off, I've heard every excuse known to man about this.."#1 fuel costs too much", "#1 fuel gets poorer mileage", "#1 fuel has no lubricity", "I use (whi

  24. AC compressor quit and hasn't been replaced yet. Never heard of Ty-crop or Artex. usually Richardtons for small operators like us. the BTOs chop into trucks. I doubt that 17' wagons would fly here. I have dumped 12' wagons into 14' trucks. if you needed a truck over 18', might as well chop right into truck. No other trucks to help? buyer's choice. he only milks 60 cows and makes do with what he has. I'm happy with the yield and quality. population was good. when i clean up spillage where we have dumped, the ground is yellow from all the kernels still on the gravel. I'll have a

  26. I saw some pictures on Facebook from around Winnipeg. Crazy the snow you guys got. Hopefully it melts and dries up but this time of the year I know how hard it is to think positive like that. I will say I’ve seen the weather do a complete 180 though and end up with a real nice warm nov too. Not sure if I should even post this as I know you guys aren’t done or even close to it in Ralph’s case but we did manage to finish up tonight finally. Last 40 acres took a long time to get done. The oats were split up within the last 40 acres. Some of it was really good heavy oats and some of it is ju

  28. I have a 706 with 282 that dad bought from the original owner back in the mid 70s. It has been a great tractor and I love it for lighter work. It just sips fuel doing light chores vs a 1066. However the d 282 is not trouble free. Keep the glow plugs working or it won't start. Never use either to start it. Thx-Ace

  30. We have pushed a little bit with the 621 and it won't hardly push up the hill as steep as we make it. We would need duals on the front to make it safe. It also doesn't have air conditioning and would be miserable in haylage from the dust. I would love to have a STX instead of the 9170. Hopefully we will get a silage rack made similar to one of these

  32. Blew a 700/40-22.5 cart tire today, MX 270 has front axle problems ..... , and at the end of the day I has a drip stream follow me home with the chopper as I got a pin hole in a hydraulic line. MX is the most expensive break down but the metric hydraulic fitting hose might be the biggest hold up in the morning. Steiger is back to the pile until we get the new to us quickie loader mounted on the MX 230

  34. if it has glow plugs then it has the 282 in it not the 310 german. the 310 is more desirable than the 282, i think they are both good engines. either engine is easy on fuel, overhauling either one will cost about as much or more than the tractor itself is worth, i overhauled the 282 in my 706 a couple years ago, it was expensive but it got the works-pump, injectors, sleeves, pistons, all new bearings and had the head gone through. the money i spent on it wouldnt make a years payment on a new tractor but it works good for my rinky-dink operation

  35. Not downplaying this in any way but it seems to me after reading the article that there might be more to the story? Tragic for sure but that is more like gang violence than being bullied. Calling someone names and getting smacked around in PE is far different than being stabbed. I know what it is to be bullied as I lived it every day in Jr High and High School. Growing up in a Christian home, I was taught to never fight and always turn the other cheek but always be willing to stand up for what you think is right. That doesn’t work if the popular kids think differently... Administrator
