  1. I’m in eastern pa here but we try to have 20 units of sulfur on bean ground, and 35 ish on corn ground. AMS is cheap and the benefit is definitely there. Also sulfur is mobile in the soil. Not as leachable as nitrogen but it moves through your loamy A horizon soils within a year. Most of the research I have seen shows it getting stratified in a clay B horizon subsoil. We also get 50 inches of rain a year. Not sure how drier climates would be but I would assume it could stick around for several years
  2. Yeah terrible wind here in Eastern PA as well. Out of power again....... we got hit hard with emerald ash borer about 10 years ago and now all the ash trees are rotten enough that they’re falling down. Every time the wind blows we loose power

    There’s a deka plant local to me in Fleetwood PA. If you go to the plant you can go to the company store (just sign in at the security shack and say I’m going to the store) and buy “blems”. Mostly batteries that have a defect in the case or something minor. They’re like half price and I’ve had really good luck with them for tractors, pickups, whatever. I don’t know if all deka plants are that way but if your nearby it can save you some coin!!
  4. How many geese per side? Sounds kinda harsh on the goose but hey if it works don’t knock it😉
  5. 😂😂😂I don’t know about the women but I always thought their farms were well kept. I knew some Mennonite and brethren girls from my time at Penn State and let me tell ya.... they get fancied up too!!
  6. If she’s got a bonnet, he’s on it!!
  7. No we’re rural enough but the bigger issue is local landowners who love deer. A lot of old guys who just like to see 30-40 deer out grazing on their farm. Most have no doe hunting posted too🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️
  8. Your clearly not from my neighborhood. We are absolutely infested with deer. Lose 25 acres of crop annually that’s not even worth combining. Say what you want but I’m patiently waiting for CWD to wipe out the deer. We need some relief from them for all the farmers around here
  9. No not yet. Anyone got any clean Older magnums for sale reasonable? Lol I think we’re gonna have to shop in the Midwest. I can’t afford these East PA prices😂😂
  10. Bitty I also saw a bobcat out there today. And a porcupine. Both kinda rare around here
  11. So what were the early and what are the later MX series? Like a 210 was the series before a 215 right? So if the model ends in a 5 there the newer models. And which were known for electrical issues? Or are all the MX in the same boat there?
  12. So I’m in the market for a new larger machine. Thinking pull my 5200 Krause drill, maybe one day a big baler, tillage, and run a grain cart. Was looking at 5488’s, then started looking at magnums, then the MX series. My question is are the MX really that bad? It seems for a nice 7140 7240 8940 or 8930 you pay as much of more than a MX 210 or 215! I’d rather have something newer if the electric problems Arnt that bad. I know the CAPS fuel system is supposed to be a nightmare but I’ve heard conversions can be done as well. I’m not sure exactly on my budget yet but would rather spend a bit mo
  13. Yeah I’m in Allentown. I got your PM
  14. Hmmm ok so from what I’ve read here it seems like a Deere might be the way to go. I’ll have to keep my eyes open this fall
  15. Wow my biggest takeaway from this whole thing is how hard those drills must pull. I thought if need be I could get away with the 806 on one. Guess I was wrong 😂😂
  16. So those Deere’s actually no till when they’re a bit worn? I like the idea of a full row of no till coulters for doing some residue management at the same time
  17. I don’t have any particular reason to like the Krause aside from them being common around here and looking plenty heavy. I always was onder the impression Deere’s we’re both expensive to buy and expensive to maintain with a ton of moving parts on the openers. The Krause just replace 2 discs and hit the road
  18. Palmerton PA. 30 minutes north of Allentown pa. View through the gap is of the Lehigh Valley about a month ago
  19. Hey guys, I’m looking to get into no tilling beans and cover crops more. The neighbor has a Krause no till drill and is super pleased with it, and just from looking at them they’re definitely really heavy. Anyone have one? How’s maintenance and repairs on them, any known weak spots? ive seen 5200NT and 5250NT drills locally. Any difference between the two or one better than the other? Would a 1486 pull a fifteen footer around on my hills? Pic for reference.... we’ve got hills
  20. After reading all this I’m going to refill them and check in a few hundred miles. We have maybe 5 loads of wheat to haul, then nothing until fall so plenty of time to rebuild if needed
  21. Both drain plugs have magnets in them and had the pieces stuck to them
