  1. Got 2nd cutting hay done yesterday. Good timing because it rained 2 1/2 inches this morning. Guys that bought the straw behind our wheat are having a he-- of a time getting it bailed. They work day jobs and by the time they get off of work and get going, the dew starts coming on in the evening quick. Last week was a washout so they tried the end of this week. Got some made then broke the baler. Then it rained.
  2. 986 From my youth. But chances of finding it aren't very good so really any 9,10,14,or 1586. A narrow front gas 656 hydro to finally replace the one I had that got burned in 2005. I rebuilt it at the end of high school and it was burned at friends farm in July 2005. Any 2+2 really including the Super 70 series 😊😎
  3. Brent 420? Looks like ours except yours is green and ours is red and we have a tarp kit on ours
  4. Been about like that here in Southern Michigan. Been doing 2nd cutting hay that the rain has held us up on. We had a piece that normally when it was cut would have made Monday. But it was so hazy with the smoke and no wind whatsoever it didn't make til yesterday. Its actually pushed everything back a day.
  5. Baler caught the tractor on fire. Gehl round baler. His teenage daughter was running it. The throat plugged and it stopped feeding. Well, apparently a Bearing was gone and heated up. She stopped and started cleaning it out which let the air in and away the baler went. She panicked and didn't get the tractor unhooked from the baler and when those rubber baler belts caught on fire. You couldn't get near enough to do anything and the tractor caught fire from that. They had just bought the baler. I had looked at the baler into possibly buying it but didn't pull the trigger. Got lucky on that one.
  6. Looks like a Ford TW Series. This was the neighbor's TW 20 last year
  7. Probably be too late by then and we'll be living like they do in Cuba or Venezuela. I said this back in January. The Chinese are practicing Colonialism on us. When all the Europeans were getting Colonies. What were they after? Raw materials and a market to sell their products to. What are the Chinese after? Raw materials and a place to sell their stuff. We're becoming a defacto Chinese colony. They're just doing it with money instead of armies.
  8. 1 1/2 " Yesterday, coupled with the 4/10ths Wednesday morning. All together since the drought broke Father's Day weekend in my neck of the woods we're approaching 14 inches of rain. We look like a bunch of geniuses here running our wheat like we Did last weekend. Ended up 16.4 moisture. Test weight was $--t. But there is more wheat to run around here than has been ran. And it's looking like our wheat is high quality compared to what still has to come in. It's all light weight and sprouting. Corn and beans where the water doesn't stand have loved this weather. Have a dry spell first half of the week so we are cutting the rest of our second cutting hay. Hope to get it dry
  9. Had a interesting conversation with a friend of my wife and her husband today at his birthday party. My wife's friend's middle daughter has developed a nasty autoimmune disorder that affects your liver and it looks rough for her. The story behind it is she was at college and long story short she got COVID. She came through that fine. The problems started when she got vaccinated. Running theroy is her immune system was already amped up from the infection. Getting the shot sent her immune system into warp drive and her response was for this autoimmune disorder to crop up and attack her liver. I realize that I'm just a dumb hick but from what I know of human anatomy, the liver is a really important organ. So we're forcing this shot of everyone and their uncle including people who have had previous infections. Maybe they should have studied whether previous infections need the shot or if these effects can happen. This young woman is at most 20 years old and now has this side effect to deal with the rest of her life. But yet according to our government no one is responsible. She's SOL. Safe huh? Well tested huh? We're being used as lab rats.
  10. Different axle because that's a 2wd axle. You can run duals on a MFWD setup. Ironically when we bought our 1st Magnum in December 1999. It was our MFWD 7120 Magnum. It was dualed front and back. We took the duals of the front and just use the rears. If you look at the picture closely on the front you can see the eyelets that the dual clamps hooked to.
  11. As I mentioned in the 3788 thread. We bought a 7230 Magnum at the end of June. Got a ok deal on it knowing a few things needed to be fixed but were ok with that. It was delivered Tuesday and we have spent a little time addressing some of the issues. None major or really mechanical in nature. Not the most beautiful paint job on it anymore but otherwise it looks and operates great. Happy with the purchase at the moment.
  12. I'll agree with this statement 100%. I call the 404 a 4 stroke Deere version of a Detroit 71 series engine. Keep it wound up and you're fine. But hit a tough spot and it falls flat on its face quicker than a 95 year old Grandma slipping on a icy spot. And yes I've been around them and used them. Chop corn every year with a Deere 5440 self propelled chopper. You hit a slug itll fall on its face in no time flat. I'll admit a 466 is a good solid engine. Deere finally started figuring out how to make a lugger out of their engines. Never been around a 8.1 so I can't pass personal judgment on it. Been on a 9.0 but was just packing silage with it so cant pass judgment on it power and lug ability wise.
  13. Early one with the lever shutoff. 1995 model.
