  1. Have a little problem. Putting a new clutch and shaft and bearings in the 1066. The problem the shaft that holds the throw out bearing fork looks like I need to take one of the cab mounts off to get it out. If so what side is the best to go out.? Thanks
  2. Any story on the Steiger with the silage blade in the background?
  3. Well it's like this if your 25 years old it weighs about 60 pounds if your over 50 it weighs 200 pounds. Use a cherry picker. Probably 100-125 pounds if I were to guess.
  4. Picked up some hard red spring wheat that had been swathed because there was a lot of weeds. Had been laying for 10 days and went through like a hot knife through butter. Hauled the load from a 25 acre field to our local elevator. The grain temp was 109 degrees and the moisture was an unheard of 8.7%. Canola is running less than 5% and some down to 3.5% Extremely dry here , .10 since July 9th and less than 3 inches for the growing season. Just saw on the news that people are stealing hay out of ditches in the western part of the state.
  5. How many gallons per minute is the pump? How many gallons of oil in the tank? Is the oil getting hot because of no cooler and tank not big enough? There is some formula for the the amount of gpm and oil reserve. Maybe the Tank should be double what the pump can pump.
  6. Rooted in alright. Last measurable rain July 7th. Total rainfall since Sept 1 2020 is less than 5 inches. Thousands of acres just like this in central ND.
  7. Local welder fixed our farmall 806 30 years ago. Broke at the hole. He welded it up then added a 1/2 by 6 inch ( don't think it was 8, will look tomorrow) plate on the bottom. It was cut out for the wish bone holes. Loader has lived on it all the time. 2 1200 lb bales most of the time.
  8. MBrown Just curious what is your annual salary and benefits? Sorry. Some of us cattle guys don't really care for a question like that.
  9. Sound a little bit like a mother at a basketball game a couple of years ago .Story come directly from the one reffing the game. A mother was yelling at the refs from the start of the game about every thing. Finally about half way through the second quarter ref calls an officials time out . Ref went over to the mother sat down beside her and explained to her he had the whistle and knows the rules of the game and she don't put a cap on it right now the next whistle she will be outside waiting for her kid. Never heard another peep out of her the rest of the game. Some people learn in a hurry and some will never learn.
  10. Dang no more giggles at the local coop. Couple weeks ago I needed some supplies, yes a longer nipple. With out thinking I walk in and ask the gal working that day if she ( Meaning the store) had a longer nipple ( face turns red and giggles) as she didn't see I had a pipe nipple in my hand. After she sees what I have she points to the back wall and says back there go fondle them until you find what you need.
  11. Starter from 915 combine will work on an 806 diesel but the 1400 series combines spin the opposite direction.
  12. Maybe find a use for it. Harvest it and sell it , it will soon go away then if it where worth anything. Or you can always cut and dry it then smoke it once that gets out people will be stealing it form you.
  13. Hey Dale what kind of ground is that where Ndawn has their station for Rugby? I see Rugby is at 94 degrees and the 4" bare soil temp is 78. At the Turtle Lake site where there is lighter ground on an little hill (north of Earls farm a little over a mile) the Temp is 93 and the soil is 87. Yesterday about 4:30 the 4" bare soil temp was at 97.
  14. I can see this now farmer burns up tractor and baler baling up corn fodder from neighboring field.
  15. I will ask but this for a half a mile and it is extremely dry here only about .30 rain fall this spring. Don't dare lite a match with any wind kind of wind or the whole neighborhood will be on fire. BTO has not planted his field yet. Soybeans I would guess. I am thinking he is going to try to claim preventive plant due to the lack of moisture.
  16. Got this problem maybe it's a rant. Last spring neighbor BTO (No livestock) plants corn on a quarter to the west of me. He harvested the corn in October with a chopper of some kind on the header and every thing is cut up and the stubble is left six inches high. With no snow this past winter and no rain this spring a lot of his corn residue has blown across the section line (he farms his, my 33 feet is cut for hay) onto my field so for 60-70 feet the $hit is so deep the disc just goes over the top and I cannot get through it with the drill it will plug the drill in 50 feet so it will not get planted. Is BTO responsible for his trash? If my cow steps one foot in his corn field he wants $500 but his trash blows into my field and I am screwed. One person said to rake and bale it. I am thinking why should I have to spend my time taking care of some one else trash to plant my field. I Planted canola in the rest of the field but if I was going to plant spring wheat I am sure the first few acres would be diseased (sp) with scab and who knows what. Any suggestion? The guy is a jerk (IMO).
  17. When is the MEDIA going to pay my ducking BILLS!!!!
  18. Been no rush here all spring. It's a little dry. Just .31 since April 1st. .22 total for Sept. and Oct. 2020 and less than 12 inches of snow for the winter and a lot of that evaporated so no run off. Less than 1 inch of precipitation since Sept.1 2020 No grass growing for pastures and hay as of right now is nothing as it has gotten down to 26-28 degrees at night. Some cattle have gone to market all ready and hay is priced at over a $100 a bale Check out the weather station at Turtle lake ND. Ndawn. ndsu.nodak
  19. On the Option side what does a Dec. 21 call cost? You are only out what the call cost.
  20. Are you on your way to rescue her with some ivermictin horse wormer paste from TSC?
  21. How wet is it? How long has been stored wet?
  22. Been to HF in Bismarck ND twice. Bought 5 items total all made in China. Don't think I am ever going back to the China store. Is every thing in HF made in china? What % is made in USA? I have e-mailed HF twice about these two questions in the last couple of weeks .No reply.
  23. Some how Harper Valley PTA came to mind. Now can't get it out of my head. Dang You Tube!!
