  1. 2.3 inches from yesterday afternoon to this afternoon. South Central Michigan We are wet. Started beans last part of September rained 4 inches at the end of the month and have been getting 1 to 2 inch rains every week since. Did manage to finish our beans last Wednesday. Have 150 acres of corn to go. We ran corn when we couldn't run beans but the field conditions allowed or we wouldn't be as far as we are. We ran a bunch of our wet fields end of last week before all this rain.
  2. Ah, the 86/88 series ledge behind the seat. I swear farm kids on IH farms took more naps on them than in their cribs.

    I've been hearing that's as big of a problem as getting the ships unloaded. Not enough trucks that are legal enough to haul out of there. Plus no owner operators can haul from the port. Another case of California screwing the rest of us over.
  4. They are still stealing it there? That was a big problem a little over 10 years ago. Then the methheads came up with the single pot method to cook it which doesn't need Annhydrous to make it. So they have gotten away from stealing it.
  5. Its like looking at farm equipment adds. When instead of the price. It says call. You know it's big money
  6. All the big grain trucks have Farm (or owner name ) on the door with various forms of artwork.
  7. i'm at the shop at 4:30 am and out around 4:00 pm and on the road a lot so you can try any  time 

    I'm out of cell range when I'm up in the woods so leave a message with a good time to call back that works for you I'm in Maine I think one time zone east of you 

    Have a good Day

  8. Good for you guys. Glad to see it going. It really is to nice of a tractor to knock on the head. If this is indeed the tractor I think it is. It never saw the inside of a shed the entire time it was at this place. So that may contribute to the condition of the oil if was hardly changed.
  9. If this is indeed the tractor I'm thinking it is ( and I'm pretty damn sure from the pictures and the one I know being missing now). It was the Concord/Parma area. Its about 5 miles by road from my house. Seen it plenty of times and it now being gone and this one being sold really has me thinking it's one and the same.
  10. Can I ask a question? Where did he he buy it from? That tractor looks really familiar with that decal in the back. Like identical to one that was in my neighborhood and it was a Hydro 186. I drove by the place last night after seeing this post and sure enough, the tractor isn't there. ( no barns on the place big enough to park it in)
  11. That's what I'm curious about. Around here, if they are stealing equipment of that vintage. They are stealing for scrap ( my saying is "Scrapping.... Funding meth heads habits since the advent of Meth" They would have tried to steal the haybine along with the tractor. We were at a equipment dealer/jockey last summer looking at a tractor. Big place. Called about a tractor and the salesman had to work on where it was. We came down a couple days later to look. Salesman told us where it was on the lot and that the keys were in it and to drive it around and do what we needed to to check it out. Stayed in the office. Got to the tractor and the key is cables to the steering wheel, so obviously the key stayed there. Got the jest that this was SOP there. You obviously aren't locking them up this way. They have apparently had no problems though so good for them.
  12. Ive actually been on a school bus that's wrecked. Not a fun ride. I was a freshman in High School. February 1999. We were on the way home from school. Bus driver came up to a intersection with state highway M-99. She started across, not seeing the 1/2 ton Dodge Ram pickup. Me and my best friend were sitting in the very back of the bus. Now me being a farm kid I obviously had been driving stuff for a bit by then. So I naturally out of habit kinda looked out the window when crossing. I was the only person on the bus who saw the truck. My buddy saw me tense up before the impact and saw my expression of "Oh F---" and wondered what was going on. Then the truck hit right at the entry door. Bus went into the Albion Township Town hall and fire station yard. Took out the phone Junction box, so no landlines in the area after that. Cell phones weren't everywhere like they are now. It is a volunteer fire department so no firefighters are there unless there is a call. Township supervisor was there doing paperwork but he wasn't emergency personnel so other than trying to phone 911 he couldn't help much. Bus did have a CB radio to bus dispatch though. The wreck had knocked the bus driver out cold. My buddy and i knew about the radio and we went to the front. He got to the radio first and tried yelling into it. I knew more and told him he needed to push the button to open the mic. That's how we got help. By the time the emergency personnel arrived the bus driver had come to. The pickup truck driver had a ruptured spleen and some other injuries I can't remember. Her son who was 8 or 10 years old was banged up pretty good too. Those 3 went to the hospital. All us bus riders were fine. About the only thing I would have done now ( knowing what I do now) is someone should have put the bus in park or neutral ( automatic transmission) and set the parking brake by popping the air off. Wasn't thinking on the transmission part and I had no air brake experience at that point in my life. ( Have tons of it now) we were still running juice brakes in grain trucks at that time.
  13. Didn't go through the right area then. No one can run beans but we've been running corn since Sunday afternoon except for our Monday breakdown. Bearing went out on the drive shaft for the tailings elevator. Tailings chain got loose. Bound up and broke. Bent the short floor extension up by this shaft. By the time we got it apart, got parts and got it back together. It was 3 in the afternoon. Monday around here was the day we could have ran beans. But at 3. Do you switch the combine over. Change heads, clean the auger cart and grain tank on the combine. Run to where we were running beans ( naturally we aren't running corn near where we were running beans) that all would have at least taken us to 4 at least and probably a little later. Dew is getting on a little after 7. Or do you finish the day running corn. We chose the latter
  14. Went three the tire thing a few weeks ago on our combine while running beans. Sidewall failure. We got lucky and the tire guys could get us one. He pretty much said. This is what I can get. Take it or leave it.
  15. Sorry I didn't catch this sooner It's a GSI. 320 bushel. Cant remember the model number right now off hand. I can ask Dad tomorrow when I see him. Envision control. Stainless steel construction. As I said, it is a used dryer. 8 years old. Finding used single phase, lp dryers is hard unless we invest in phase converters.
