  2. This past weekend was the first time of using my #9 hay rake. They had a 7 ft raking width, this one has been modified to 9ft width as you’ll see in pics (notice the non painted section of the tooth bars and angel iron beam on the rakes left side). It’s a great hay rake. This is my neighbors pasture that I irrigate. Usually he has cattle on it now but with it being so dry early on he brush hogged it instead in hopes of watering again to get a fall cutting. It’s a five acre pasture but I didn’t do all of it just raked where grass was heavy and it will be fed to his cattle. The tractor is also

  3. Last time I checked Mr Gates is not a doctor or any other type of medical professional and as far from a chemist as I am. Smart business man? Absolutely !!! So when it comes to comments regarding a “ Pandemic “ who gives a dam what he thinks ? When I need information about Fertilizer for my corn I’m not going to ask Paris Hilton.

  4. The problem is stated right in the title “GM 6.5 Power”. That is an oxymoron. 👹 sorry, I had to go there.... never was around one that was impressive personally. I do wish you the best fixing the problem though.

  9. We took Smoke Rings and ran up to the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds at Davenport for a ECITPA pull. A real photographer was there and caught some nice pics. Had a great night. Snuck into 5th place in a tough sanctioned class.

The national event has been canceled due to covid-19. He must get it from his grandpa who could fix/build anything. Because I can barely change oil.

  11. Most of what I've seen is people saying they would protect themselves and their homes. That's not a vigilante. Maybe one post leaned that way. I want the leaders in the cities where this is occurring to do their job and shut it down when it goes from protesting to rioting. If the elected leaders in these areas would do their job then there wouldn't be any need for one to even think about vigilante justice.

  12. Good post. I've talked with quite a few people lately who are saying the same thing: "I never thought about buying a gun, but I'm thinking about it (or have done it) now".

  13. Dasnake, The rear square and front round tank are both for boiler make-up water. The angled bin on the rear tank is for coal. There are two whistles on it, the tall one a steamboat whistle my dad recovered from a grounded, wrecked steamboat on UL Bend of the Missouri River in northeast central Montana.The "spinner" on top is the flyball governor. It drives from the crankshaft. As the crankshaft rotates, it turns the governor and the weight of the three balls fly outward with centrifugal force. There's a long shaft from the top, down through the center stem that closes down the steam passage wi

  15. Just for the record, I really do not like seeing an animal suffer. Even a pure nuisance like that. I strive for a clean kill if at all possible. I figure if someone was going to shoot me I would want the same decency. I don’t mean that to sound crude but if you think about it....

  16. This past weekend I went to Brown Pioneer Farm Days in Central City, Iowa because they were featuring IHC and I had some friends that were also going too. Here are some pictures of my McCormick Deering 15-30 and Brush Breaking Plow along with my Farmall F-20 that I took along with. There is also a few pictures of what some of my friends brought along too. There is a plow day over by Claremont, MN coming up on Sunday that I think I am going to take my F-20 and a two bottom plow over to.

  20. So the wife called yesterday about noon getting gas in Stanley. A few minutes later I thought, cowboy up and go meet her in Butte City, hundred miles for me, 140 for her. Forked ole Mobey, and rode hard to the Four Winds bar. Beat her there and she spotted my bike. Had a beer and rode home together. Happy times.

  28. I find it amusing you were the first to respond to the term “useful idiot”, but I digress, the methodology of the democratic leadership in these cities is running a fine parallel to the methods of all great communist leaders, it reads like a Saul Alinsky playbook, I don’t see anything our President is doing that even comes close to what these so-called leaders are doing, and on a side note, I find your gut wrenching distaste for President Trump rather entertaining, living in your head for free, the Donald loves cheap real estate 😂.

  30. So we had one night of rioting. The next afternoon the cops took care of it with bicycles 🤣. A line of riot cops, backed up by national guard guys with humvees, gas masks etc . I was watching it live and about 30 bicycle cops come from a side street. I'm thinking what the heck are they going to do? They line up with their bikes cross wise in front of them between the screaming protestors and the riot cops . On command they moved up 5 feet. Protestors backed 5 feet. Did that a half dozen times. The group starts spreading out. The guy in command takes off his helmet with the faceguard. He

  31. I have played around pulling antiques and stock farm tractors my whole life. Then I put this together a few years ago. When I made that first pass at 20 mph dragging the sled behind me I felt like I was on the nose of a rocket. Dang did it feel good and it still does every single time!

  32. I have been keeping my head down on this whole topic since it all started hoping that common sense would prevail. The longer and more outrageous this becomes the more concerned my wife and I have become. I will state we both are independent, but lean to the conservative side. Looking at the violence, i shake my head on how that helps or brings anyone over to their cause, and truth be told turns us away from any message they wish to present All of these actions has made us think maybe it is time to prepare to protect ourselves, and our property.

The US Population is 330,000,000 and in 5 months the number of deaths was 130,000.

  37. Here are pics of a local tractor parked across the road. It is original wheat land had stuff changed the front tires , pto added. If I remember I put pto in years ago. I put a head gasket in on about 1993. Done it under the guys tree at his farm. The first local owner bought tractor after losing a few others . I helped second local put clutch in it a couple years ago. The head gasket I put in will soon outlast the original. It blew out the front cyl towards water pump

  38. I had a close call with my bike (actually several) so I decided time to walk away. We have 1 daughter and 3 grandkids now so we have been spending time and miles with them. We have been to the Canada border in Minnesota, South Padre Island Texas, South Florida, Chincoteague Island, VA, Mackinac City Michigan (and many lighthouse trips) as well as many weekend or local week vacations and several tractor shows is distant states like Rollag, Minnesota. My wife and I had traveled a lot by motorcycle over many years. When it is time to move on, you will know the time is right. Enjoy the family befo

  39. Our family had a steam engine which used to drive a bore pump and the shearing shed but wasn't working in my time. So my steam experience is mostly looking. I'd say that is the governor - you can see the fly weights. In theory out here the bloke who drove the engine was supposed to have a ticket. Story of one without being sprung by a roving inspector. In the interrogation one of the questions asked was:- "In the event of the governor belt breaking what steps would you take"? "Big ones" was not deemed the appropriate answer.
