  1. Stamps I assume. Of course the ones who took over were just as crooked. Just on a grander scale
  2. Well, we will see how this works out. Got everything replanted between Saturday and Yesterday and last night/early this morning we got 4 inches of rain. Water standing in the hollows probably going to have crusting now. Great 🙄🙄 Just Great
  3. We used to have a 1620. Which is the 1420s sucessor. Had it for 16 years I don't know if anything i know on what i know will help or not. But if you think so. Ill pm you
  4. If i could get away from not raising soybeans, trust me i would. I hold my nose raising the damn things. But one we need something to rotate out of corn into and 2 what few other options aren't worth anything really. I hate that wheat and oats aren't worth as much like they were before beans came on around here. If they came up with a viable, and somewhat profitable alternative to soybeans. I would be in the shop and half hour front then cutting up the soybean meters on the planter to take away the temptation from Dad and my brother to plant them again
  5. Thanks. I have asked around and have came up Deadline would be the stuff to use if you can get it. Which is damn near impossible around here right now. Turns out the problem is very wide spread around here. We are fortunate to only have the problem bad in 3 fields and a little bit in 2 others that have held them back . But where they are bad. They are bad. Its bad enough we cant get any of the above mentioned items right now. So we went with plan B which is the spots that there isn't enough beans left to say so. Took the disc after them and got rid of the corn trash so they don't have the cover to hide in and dry things out with the heat this week. If you can't get deadline you're wasting your time replanting without working the trash up. Anyone that has tried found out the hard way that no tilling into that cover does no good So Dad disked up the bad spots in 3 fields while i finished cutting 1st cutting hay. Got our old grain drill out instead of the planter because we thought 7 1/2 rows would canopy quicker than 15 inch rows at this late stage. And our grain drill is as conventional as it can get. John Deere 8300 single disc. We will see what happens. Keep you guys informed on what happens. All i can say is its bad enough that get bean seed to replant is even becoming a issue.
  6. Just as the title says. Anyone ever deal with slugs eating your soybean stand ? We have 2 fields that have it bad and a smatering in a couple of others. Tried to replant as we were told they were towards the end of there cycle and wouldn't be quite as bad. That was the wrong answer. They are just as bad eating the new seeding of. You can move trash and in places find 4 to 8 slugs in a given area you look. Its a problem in select areas all over this area. We aren't the only ones dealing with it. Anyone have any ideas how to get this under control? Or these fields just screwed. It like Army worm and it going to expand into the higher areas? Or just stay down in the lower areas? Stand is hard to look at in these fields. Ask around here and no one really has any idea what to do. Hasn't affected corn one iota though.
  7. Some of it has to do with the fact some of these cabs were one gust of wind from falling to pieces. Who wants to fix one that far gone. And add in missing doors, windows and what not. What are you really saving Another thing is you mentioned a lot of these are show queens. There isn't any such thing as a quick on and off out of those cabs. Not the greatest for jumping on to drive around a show or do a parade. Especially considering the age a lot of the owner's are. Hard to get in and out of. Plus the younger generation like me has no use for them. I did my time in a 66 series cab. As far as im concerned everything pre 86 series can go to the scrap yard. Ears still ring from that. I agree with the premise of they are a lot alike though
  8. You have that right. We deal with that on a 510C backhoe we have.
  9. If I had 3 phase it would be worth asking about it.
  10. This one is black faced, white lettering, crank on the side.
  11. How decent is a Miller Thunderbolt ? Found one fairly close that is AC/DC capable. Fair price. If i contact them anything to look for?
  12. I don’t have one piece of the clevis. It went flying when it broke. Have no clue where it landed
  13. Hydraulic cylinder on left wing of the Annhydrous toolbar broke the clevis this morning. Not the rod end but the fixed clevis on the cylinder itself. One part of the clevis went flying to parts unknown so i don’t even have it all to try welding cast even if i wanted to try. That and being that it holds the wing vertical in the air im not sure if i want to have a welded clevis on it in case it fails, like lets say going down the road. Im wondering if a cap and clevis can be bought seperate and put on the cylinder. There is nothing wrong with the cylinder itself. Or has this cylinder bought a way to the scrap heap and we are get a new cylinder. Robbed one of of something else to get going but would like to find what the game plan has to be to fix this. Cylinder is a 2 1/2 inch diameter, 8 inch stroke.
  14. We have already smoked 3 with our discbine so far in 1st cutting. They were young enough that they weren't moving much and we cut at roughly 6 to 6.5 mph and the hay is quite thick this year. You don’t see them until the next round after all the carnage is done.
