  1. Nice sled! I'm sure you'll like it. There's a couple that I know of out here and guys seem to like them. I see a few tracks around here but not really enough snow yet. I also haven't dug any of mine out yet, and now that it's -30 I'm not overly enthusiastic about it either 😂 I heard Hudson Bay/ Swan River areas got a pile of snow and is nice riding right now. I was hoping to do a weekend up that way before Christmas but I don't think it will happen
  2. I've got a couple Innova units that have been good. My first one was a OBD-1/OBD-2 code reader. It has worked good for what I needed. The latest one I got is a OBD-2 with ABS, SRS and Engamced OEM codes. No complaints with it, but it was a bit over a couple hundred bucks. I don't think you can go wrong with most any unit out there.
  3. Between those 2 machines, here, I personally would take the Deere. I liked the visibility and layout better, and found it more comfortable for me, and also incredible dealer support here. If it goes down there's another one being delivered to keep ya going, or at least that was the case. Also no DEF to deal with which I really liked for our winters. But, if you're planning on running a mulcher, I would lean towards Cat. I have no experience with a mulcher, but have been told by deere guys and others who have run them that they don't have enough cooling or capacity to be able to run all day every day. Also another note about mulchers that quite a few different salesman of different brands have told me is that they are extremely hard on the loader and the radial lift machines will stand up to the abuse much better. At the end of the day either one can go down. The one with better dealer support and the one you would rather spend all day, every day in would be the one to go with.

    Would be easy picking lol
  5. I've heard of peas and canola but not really much at all of it being done. Supposedly works really good.
  6. The old good year dura-torques are significantly shorter than the dyna-torques
  7. Interesting article. Not cb, but last year I was mowing at work in the middle of the bush, where I would normally only get 1 fm radio station. I was cruising through the channels just for curiosity and I was picking up alot of new stations. About 9 or 10 that came in crystal clear. Lots more with some static. But of all those, not a single localish channel from Manitoba or Saskatchewan was coming in. All the ones I was picking up were from Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, couple other states, I forget which ones. I found that pretty interesting. Sometimes I can get stations from North Dakota or Montana, but not too often. I wonder if there was something like sun spots causing it or what the reason was. It lasted about 3 days, and I think it was the clearest on a overcast and drizzly day. Dad always talks about talking to truckers from all over the US when he had cb's in all the equipment. He said there was lots of Mexican chatter on it quite often too. We're quite a ways north of the Canada/US border
  8. That's too bad the gooloo unit didn’t work for you. I've bought a couple of the gooloo units off Amazon because they were cheap. I was pretty skeptical being 1/3 the price of a Noco. First one was a 2000 I gave to my sister to keep with her. She hasn't used it much, but the few times she needed it, it worked fine even with sitting in the car all winter. The next one I got is a 4000 for the farm. It's become one of those things I don't know how we lived without it. It'll start anything here. 4494 had bad batteries and they wouldn't take a charge anymore. Couldn't get it to go with boosting off my duramax. Put the pack on and turned the key and it was running. 1486 we were fighting a drain on it and it would go stone dead in a few days. Put that on and turn the key and away it goes. And that was below freezing not plugged in. What really sold me on these booster packs, is our combine has a big v6 Mercedes in it. 11L I believe. It's a slow cranker with 1 4DT in it. This fall the battery was getting weak, would start good warm but barely crank cold. We would boost with the trucks and eventually it would flip fast enough and take off. But put this little booster of a thing on it and guaranteed it would spin fast and fire off in about 5 seconds. I used it every day. It never missed a beat, and the thing is 3 years old now.
  9. I was to Brandon today, and yea it looks like a normal fall day for us from the valley south. Just a skiff of snow lol. I also knew when I was within a few miles of home because the snow started falling again lol
  10. As for used trimbles, last I was told is the 500 is the only one not supported anymore although I'm sure there are other places that will repair them. They still sell the 250, not sure on the 750. I haven't really looked at new units for a couple years now so not sure what all has changed.
  11. Trimble is the unit of choice around here if you want the electric motor type steering
  12. Come 20 miles north and you'll think you're at the north pole 😂 There had to be at least 8 inches when I came home just after dark
  13. I guess an easy way to check would be to see if they are the same part number for a 4/5000 vs a 6000/6500. The later is a macdon unit
  14. Our macdon are a different base than the IH. Look the same, but not. The 70's/ early 80's jd/macdon are more similar but for some reason I think it was a little bit smaller of a wobblebox. The knife drive arm is way lighter too. I should go have a look. Have a spare of each. When we needed parts for the IH ones if I remember right it was only IH and New Idea that were the same. Buy I could be wrong
