    Hydros - School Me On Them...

    I have mowed with the 15' hesston disk mower on the 1066 hydro. I was in high range. The problem I had was I need a set of 10 bolt hubs and duals to keep from being pushed all around on the corners . Hydro=perfect haying tractor and for loader work. Nice on a pull type chopper to some extent. 1066 was the only one that had a turbo from the factory. Turbo adds better response as the engine holds RPM better and used slightly less fuel . Herrs machine in Kansas is the expert on these Hydros

    Another manure tank repair

    All of the ones that we have had the hitch is tapered narrower at the front. Is that a Diller or Connestoga ?

    JD 30 series vs 40 series

    I didn't mind that either. On our '77 1586 we cut the park lock shifter off 2" above where it came through the shifter gate. We used a piece of pipe just slide it over it and once in gear you take the pipe off and set it on the floor. We did this because we were pumping manaur with it for years. We were getting in and out of it 3-4 dozen times a day

    JD 30 series vs 40 series

    The stupidest thing was the ops manual said it was rated a maximum of 151 hp @2,500 RPM, (then it said) do not lug more than 100 rpm before downshifting I think it was able to get that horsepower with a good tail wind helping out. In '96 we got a well used 1586 and it started easy and had MUCH more power and torque than that Allis

    JD 30 series vs 40 series

    We bought an '83 leftover 8050 powershift MFD new in '87. The cab was really nice. The engine was a turd. The torque limiter clutch went out every year and a half. Started hard in cool weather. At 5K or so we put in a 505 Cummins kit from Everet Hunley out of Indiana? It then had an awesome poweplant

    Farmall Super H versus 300

    I have been wanting to do this. I am thinking about a bench seat made out of rough cut wide lumber may look correct on it.

    Winter wood supply.

    I have to cut most of mine yet. I usually like to do it when the ground condition is correct, dry or frozen enough. If weather permits I will drag out of the woods, cut it up and load up the dump truck with a rock (skeleton) bucket on the skid steer. The other year I skidded half or so with the ol M . I have an outside wood stove and the dryness is not as important. We have a lot of dead Ash trees, just got to be EXTRA cautious cutting them

    Snow covered corn

    20 some years ago we tried to finish combining hi-moisture corn and a belt went on the 4400 we had. Of course JD didn't have one . Combine froze over night and it was an ice cube until tge spring thaw. We finished tge last 15 acres with a borrowed 1 row picker

    Farmall Super H versus 300

    I would vote for the 300 with a fasthitch. Restore a fasthitch carrier and then the kids can ride in the back throwing candy

    Verizon 3G cell phones

    X2 on leaving Verizon and bill going to one fifth of what Verizon was raping me for. I asked at the Verizon booth at Empire Farm Days if my plan was up for renewal. She looks on the computer and said sure. I said great and then took my phone # to the next company. Verizon always was changing the plan you were on......
