  1. Look what available in Calif .Orchard sprayers ! It call Guss Autonomous sprayers . Driverless sprayers , one man in a pickup at end of field can operate four machines, if all dialed in up to six machines Go to; Guss.com and view the operation. They are built in Kingsburg ,Ca . a few miles S/E of me. Alleviates drivers, safety equipment, doctors certs etc. Still need the human loader but its all enclosed systems. Tony
  2. Yes , I hope I did not make a mistake but I thought it would be my trade mark to have the Bobbsie twins ! 1/2 ton pu and 3/4 flat bed . One a 345 gas the other 392 propane. I love IH red so here I am being boring and predictable ! Lol . although can’t forget IH baler yellow ! Lol
  3. Few more pics ! 8/18/21 the hub cap we are hoping to use with a custom made wheels. tony
  4. 8/17/21 First glimpse of paint on Herbie. Needs to be color sanded and buffed. Thinking that in two weeks should have cab done as far as paint. Tony
  5. That’s one race we have not run yet ! Lol all in all the Freeman would out bale the IH . well the way I been lately , very well May get lost ! Lol tony
  6. 8/9/21 wanted one more shot at baler shake down Eddie had another field ready to go this evening . He raked it this AM and we were waiting for first sign of softness which happened around 8:30 pm . she , our #71 , did beautiful , no missed ties , feeding just perfect , I think she is dialed in . some California sunset and alfalfa field photos! our wife’s came out to help us wait for dew , should of brought chairs and beer , darn it , oh well live and learn . the two John Deere’s and Freeman balers are Eddie’s and they will be doing the real work on this field tonight . Note ; the windrows ,Eddie grows #1 Dairy and Horse Hay ! His hay bales make our balers look good ! Lol . Still in August he manages to keep the green looking bale , usually the dews have the windrows bleached . its 10:30 Pacific time now , Dont want to wake anybody up , like I did Sledgehammer one time , tomorrow I will sent BJ some videos to post . thanks Guys , I think the old #71 will go on show girl status now . However , if I find a nice field that wants wire instead of twine I would be tempted to baled it ! Lol tony
  7. Herb updates ! I am wanting them also ,lol. I have had couple conversations with them recently. They tell me the cab and other sheet metal is at the painters and they thought they were two weeks off of actual paint, They assure me that all components are repaired and ready for final installation when painters are done. I have learned that between my restorations , the red truck restoration, and Herb restoration; DONT HOLD YOUR BREATH ! Days turn to weeks , weeks to months , months to years . End of August will be two years that I took it to them , in my mind I am thinking another year. Hope its sooner . I worry about fires up in their area of Grass Valley, That Plumas County fire raging now is as close to Grass Valley as I can be comfortable with . Tony
  8. The short time the bale wagon takes to clear field we can have irrigation water back in. shooting for two irrigations in the 28 day cutting schedule, 103% degree average for month does not leave much time in cutting schedule. Tony
