  1. Another thing to consider is that 30 in spacing will have to be higher above the crop canopy to achieve a good spray pattern. Usually not an issue but if your spraying xtend beans........
  2. Oh I wish I could find someone who had a real good picker and needed rocks. There’s gotta be thousands of tons on the home place im waiting for a new spray that dissolves them......
  3. Neighbor used a 7130 on a 1 row new idea picker so he had a radio
  4. Oh there’s dirt down there. Small grain will bounce down between the rocks and actually comes up pretty good. The worst part is trying to follow your row markers they don’t cut in well in solid rock. Yeah it was in corn last year but as you see that patch didn’t give very well. I’ll attach a pic of the rest of the soil in that field
  5. Yeah that field would probably do best in pasture but the other 90% gives decent crops so we just work right through it
  6. Lol here your on bedrock in 2 feet at places. That post will be splinters before you get 4 feet
  7. Yeah stripping that topsoil and running it through a screener would be about the best option there. That is a ten acre piece and about an acre right on top of the ridge is real bad but I don’t feel like planting around so I drop a gear and head right through. 60 feet away it’s nice clay loam with few rocks and will do 160-180 bpa. Small grains grow pretty good
  8. But you probably don’t have PA rocks posted these on Bittys planter thread, and thought I’d just throw them out here so you can see why I’ll never be planting at 15 mph on my farm

    New joke

    Well sometimes you just gotta get deep enough to plant into moisture. Having a good heavy planter that can really get down in there deep is a must in those situations

    And Guys.......your all worrying about cover crops and no one even mentions ideal soil moisture when it’s time to plant. That’s even more important to me....

    At least in my personal experience, cover crops just seem to make things look unkept. Nothing quite like the a nice smooth bare field. And I’m talking moldboard and cultipacker smooth. Takes a lot of work to get your fields in that kind of shape. But the guy planting will definitely appreciate the smooth ride!
  12. This is the worst spot on my place. But yeah your lookin at a typical pa shale head. People say pick rocks, boys if I wanted to pick all my rocks I’d need a mining permit. As you can see some stuff actually grows up through the rocks, and of the ten acre field only about 1/2 acre is like that so we just farm right through it. BUT I make my point of I don’t care how stout you make equipment. Hitting that at 20 mph and you’ll have pieces
  13. Let me know when a planter will do 20 mph on these fields
  14. Wow. Now that’s cool!

    There’s bimbo bakeries trucks driving around here in PA
  16. See you lose the tiny little area where the turbine was. Here we lose 500 acre patches to warehouses. But like you said once it’s gone it’s never coming back.
  17. Easy for you to say when it’s not the farm generations of your family have slaved away building up. And your statement about commodity prices doesn’t hold out when it’s ground you rent being taken away and sold into development. To give a scope of how rediculis it’s gotten a 20 acre piece a few miles away just sold for 2 million for a urgent care center. I just worry if there’ll be anything left in 40 years
  18. Well since you asked what annoys me is that the best farmland gets built up. Cities on the east coast were settled in areas with real nice soil, so their occupants had access to plentiful food, since the 60’s urban sprawl has consumed most of the nice ground around here. All the nice 160 acre fields make perfect warehouse pads. All that’s left to farm are little shale patches and hills. Scroll over to trexlertown pa on google maps, thousands of acres are now under roof so that people can get their Amazon shipments 3 hours quicker
  19. I really don’t think there’s development in the Midwest like there is here. Look up jaindl farms on google. Local BTO. Farms 12000 acres which he owns and has ultimate plans to develop it ALL. It’s painful to watch your way of life turn into acres of soccer moms and mini vans with their damn picket fence

    806 problems

    OK sounds like that’s probably my issue. I’ll do some more investigation and see what I find

    806 problems

    So I recently pulled the head off my 806 diesel due to a burned valve, I had no problems with anything else. I took it to the machine shop , who magnafluxed it, and installed new exhaust valves. Then at the machine shops recommendation, I had my local ih dealer put new injector sleeves in the head. I was told this should be done any time it is magnafluxed. So I put it all back together, used a ih gasket kit$400 and used copper spray on it, torqued by the book on both torque amount and sequence she fired right up, all was well. The next morning fired up with no issue and drove the 7 m
