  1. If your dead set on doing it be sure and get a bushy type bean. 100000 ppa can yield a fine crop if you keep out the weeds and are timely with planting
  2. Hmmmm maybe these carp will eat all my spotted lantern fly’s. Gotta look at the bright side guys!
  3. No fine for using insecticides. In fact they encourage it. They love the tree of heaven (also invasive) and tell you to just hose it down with a residual insecticide. They says they’ll have a mound of dead ones around the base. Apparently just south of Bethlehem they’re so bad you can’t even see the bark on the trees. Just solid bugs
  4. They’re a planthopper, and pretty much totally ruin any vineyard, or orchards they get into.....they’re not much good for hardwoods either apparently. I see em in alfalfa hoppin around but they don’t do much there.....
  5. This stupid spotted lanternfly really makes for a lot of hassle. Now the PA dept of Ag makes you attend training sessions, take tests, have a pass on each farm vehicle (still not sure if tractors and combines need the permit). On top of that you need to fill out a paper logbook anytime you move a pickup, grain truck, anything within the quarantine zone. If dot stops ya and you don’t have your paperwork filled out that you checked for these stupid things it’s a 25000$ fine. If ya don’t know what these Korean bugs look like here’s one sitting on the front tire of my 806 last summer.....

    Not like and I’ve ever seen. This widget is way more complex than them things

    Well clearly no one knows....but I’d bet old binder guy still has two hanging on the wall of his shop, and one with original paint !

    Looks an awful lot like scrap metal but it can be tough to tell
  9. Yeah I’ve been around plenty of stackers and crusher conveyors and in my experience the tail is usually crowned, but now that you mentioned it I don’t think I’ve ever taken notice of a crowned head pully. The crown doesn’t have to be much, especially if you can track the belt but makes them run true. I’d bet if you got on factory rubber coated head pulley with some calipers it’d have a crown to it

    Good to have another PA guy aboard
  11. I’m not trying to push any agenda, just trying to give you guys some hard evidence about why I hate urban sprawl and development. Imagine a QUARTER of the ground around you coming out of production in the last 20 years. By the time I’m ready to retire there won’t be any left. If you look at the numbers in the article it’s not small amounts either
  12. My bad for not clarifying but I meant in the Lehigh Valley PA. I’ll go back and edit. If you read the article you’ll find the numbers actually come from the USDA census or Agriculture. Seems legit to me, not to mention I can drive down the road and watch warehouses go up as fast as they can

Really a sad state of affairs
  14. Yeah in all honesty fuel is pennies on the dollar compared to the rediculis input costs today

    Make of disc

    I wouldn’t be surprised if you need a 4 inch cylinder to lift that thing. Looks aweful heavy
  16. In 800 more years people will look back and read about it and how the folks rebuilt one of their greatest landmarks. These things happen and all you can do is rebuild to the best you can, from all the scaffolding it appears major repairs were needed from the start
  17. I figured you’d be glad, now there’s someone else outside to protect you when you spend the night in the doghouse. Those bigfoots like to cuddle you know. Watch out!

    Well there’s messicks, Brinkley and hurst, Hoober, and a bit north Eckroth Bros. All sell IH parts and I believe Eckroth and Hoober have license to sell axial flows but only Hoober sells sprayers

    Good for them. I hate the idea of not having any competition between dealers unless you wanna switch colors. At least east PA has a heap of IH dealers left

    I don’t know, just heard eastern pa was definitely on their radar for the near future. I think eventually there’ll only be 5 or 6 dealers left in the US. Kinda been the way it’s going. Big operation who knows you HAVE to deal with them. Customer service.....never heard of him

    Rumor has it they’re buying Deere Country in eastern PA in 2020. As if the parts guys at Deere country aren’t bad enough I’m sure it’ll get worse
  22. Yeah they’re slotted but that adjusts front to back. The issue is up and down. I know the meters are good, and the drive doesn’t seem worn. I ordered one new hopper from shoup and hopefully that helps. Was hoping someone else had had this issue before
  23. At least I think these are max emerge 2 boxes?
  24. By the way it has max emerge 2 units
  25. So I just picked up a 7200 planter. I know, I know but I trust you guys advice and I’m sure some of you have plenty of experience with these. So the row units have that flex drive setup on them, like two little fingers that engage on two dowels on the sprocket. The issue is that the drive coupler on the meter seems to sit about 1/4 inch below the drive sprocket. The previous owner solved this issue by wedging scraps of cardboard under the boxes to hold them up in line. I’m looking for some type of adjustment but am not seeing any. Are there supposed to be little spacers or something betwe
