  1. You keep a clean work station. I am impressed.
  2. 40% if they split all the imputs with you evenly and give you guarantee for X number years. 25% if you supply the inputs and market the hay, I would still want a simple contract/guarantee.
  3. Since, you mention it, it is much more noticeable on the cut sides of the bales. I guess on the hand-stacked loads we could endevour to turn the cut sides in. Wouldn't really be practical on what we load with the grapple. I agree that salt would help, as the family has done that in the past on wet hay stacked in a loft. But I don't know how we would get the salt on the sides of the loads of hay. The top is usually not a problem, only the sides. Thanks, guys. This makes me feel like I am at least not the only one this happens to!
  4. So I have had a problem again this week that I have had sporadically in the past. We put up some second cutting small square bales (cool season grass mix) and it went up in good shape. If anything, some of it was a bit too dry. We loaded trailers and backed them in a barn. This barn is kind of in a creek valley, and sometimes when we out loads of hay in it, the outside of the bales get some mold after a couple weeks. The hay inside the loads is fine. Its just a pain, because we lose 10-20 bales per 125 load, because I dont want to take horse owners hay with mold, even just on the outside of the bales. Any ideas to prevent this? This only happens in this barn, but I really need it to out hay in. Would spraying a preservative on the outside of a load of stacked hay before backing it in the barn help. I've thought about trying to increase airflow also. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
  5. Got several of em. Much better than everything else on the market. But that's not a fuel jug. It is a "utility container." So don't be putting fuel in it!
  6. What about no resitance to the levers? Stuck clutches? And can you pull start these?
  7. Just an abundance of stuff already here needing repaired/updated. And no abundance of time or money! But I'll go back and check it out. If I can't take it on, maybe one of you all can.
  8. Somebody please talk me out of this. We have found a TD6 in a barn. With straight blade. It looks good, still has the original lights w/ guards and a PTO. Pads are nearly new, chain looks good, sprocket teeth still rounded, couldn't tell about the rollers. Does not run, but they said previous owner "pulled it off" and started it 3-4 years ago. I don't know if you can pull start these or not. The clutch levers move but have no resistance, like they aren't actually doing anything. I know you can sink a bunch of time and money in these things, and we're not sitting on a bunch of either. I'd like a dozer to clean up a little around the place, and I have a soft spot for old red machines. I think it can be bought for $1500 or less. Sorry for no pictures. What do y'all think?
  9. C'mon man, your a Ford guy. That is clearly a 1980+ truck. But I agree with the sentiment. "Kids, be safe now. Sit down inside the bed on the floor. There you go. Big kids, you can sit on the wheel wells. Don't let those little ones be standing up while we're going down the road."

    Hats off. I like it!
  11. I had not chained it down yet. Trying to get good pictures while the light was good. But I know an old farmer who hauls his 20 miles without any chain or strap. Crazy if you ask me.
  12. Loaded up to go to the county fair pull tomorrow night. Thought this was a good lookin rig. Truck has 215,000 miles, tractor has 9400 hours. And not for sale!
  13. It's a real thing. I think they were 2-cylinders. Different, huh?
