  1. Believe or not, we used to do that to. Dad got tired of the longer fill up times and one spring about 7 years ago the spray pump crapped the bed and no one had one close by and he was on the war path that day he told my brother to get the 786 and the hardi and start spraying behind him. He liked it because he felt he covered more ground that way not messing with filling spray tank. He never went back after that. Though if we got a bigger planter we'd have to get bigger tanks as the tank we had was only 110 gallons.
  2. No, we work ground, plant and spray at the same time ( 3 of us farming at the moment). We don't like discing to far ahead in case of rain so we can stir it up to dry if needed and we spray pretty quickly after so we don't end up with it raining a bunch and we can't get on it. Corn or beans emerge and then what we use can't be used so you end up switching chemistrys. So yes at times all 3 outfits are going but i see what you're saying and it could be done. Its just nice not to have to play musical tractors. Especially when you're away from the main farm. Can you clarify what a EU Magnum i
  3. You guys have a point but i was thinking a FWA or 4wd on the disc. It really does help on our hills. However you would probably be able to have a 1486 pull a 12 row planter with fertilizer on it around here. Here's a few pics of the disc we run, the job it does in corn stalks, and the 7120 pulling it. I rather have the FWA on it than the 2wd 7120 but it has done it.
  4. Honestly no. What 3 point stuff we do have is easily handled by what we already have. And even that's not much larger stuff. 4 shank subsoiler and the Anhydrous toolbar are the big stuff. After that it's small 3 point blades, bush hog, log splitter. Stuff like that.
  5. Im surprised it moved that quick too. A number of you have said go boxcar, and trust me i love me a Boxcar Magnum with the best of them ( have 2 now). Im just having a hard time plunking down 30,000 plus for a tractor that for a large part of the year will be sitting. Most of the year we have plenty of hp sitting around. Its just really this period in the spring that we don't have enough larger tractors. The smaller ones work great during the rest of the years. Yeah, we could trade one of the smaller ones in for a larger one but then you'd have this bringing a howitzer to a knife fight wi
  6. Update. Well, i screwed up and didn't get in touch with the family in time and it sold quicker than I thought. With the owner dying, busyness at the farm and busyness at home helping the wife with the baby i didn't get called in time. When i got in contact with the grandson he told me it sold. My mess up.
  7. Because to get up to this level of government you have to be a narcissist and so full of yourself that a pair of hip waders aren't high enough for the amount of BS spewed out. Every single one of them thinks that they're the genius savant who will make it work where all others have failed, not realizing that it doesn't work period. This could play into some corporations hands ( especially some foreign owned companies, Smithfield is one on the top of my head). This land that is granted to people who chances are wouldn't know what to do with it if you drew them a map and literally held the
  8. Little different drawbar from 786 we have
  9. Remember to leave your phones at home too.
  10. Probably better as a ghost. You have to admit nothing would scare the $--- out of you more than seeing that in a haunted house.
  11. Im running a 48 H that i converted to 12 volt 3 years ago. Running the original starter. No problems yet.
  12. So. ? You trying for the stroke of luck, you break it free and it runs approach? If you're not going for the above approach. What is the point? The head comes off anyway. Im just trying to understand the approach here is my reason for asking.
  13. Yup. Gravel company said they think that there was a river running through this area when the glaciers were melting. Hence the river rock look on the pic. Glaciers did a great job on throwing rocks all over the place around here. I refer to them as glacier $---. Needless to say i hate picking rocks.
  14. Here's a pic of the soil profile i found from the farm i have pictured above with the gravel pit to give you a idea. Granted , not all of what we farm is this bad but there is definitely rocks all over
  15. A interesting thing about this right now. During the shutdowns we've had and continue to have. What sector has taken it in the face repeatedly with job losses and business losses.
