    See this sold out in sandhillers country for about 12 1300 hundred. Wish I would of saw it before the auction. Kinda of a neat piece
  7. Sledgehammer is not entirely wrong. I think he is referring to VARs , Volt-amp reactive. I can’t really explain it well but on generators you can adjust it . I believe we would run about -6 on the generators. After the windmills came we would run -15 or -17 if I recall to balance out the smaller wind generators . I was told electric motors run more efficient and last longer at that -5 or - 6 . For some reason the 1 to 3 mw can’t regulate them as well as 70 or 600 mw unit. Sorry I’m a little vague but the power companies were and are struggling with this
  8. Neighbor up the road used a W4 and a AR jd . To b fair grandpa had a U Allis also .
  9. Lots of M gas engines out there , my grandpa ran his 640 acre farm with a W6 . It will still be running when these Chinese ones r long gone
  10. Always thought they made good Equipment, anyone ever run one of these
  11. that is really awesome. looks to be the real thing
  12. Not as noble, but coming from a gassy family. ( A farting horse never tires so a farting man is the man to hire.)
  13. So did u recover everything in red ? Or able to order it ? Looks nice
  14. They do die and dry down . For me thou the time it didn’t freeze it took a long time . Think I was combining in Jan . You can’t combine them green. Even sort of green works the heck out of the combine
  15. I guess u have to realize that if there financing that it’s required that the place is finished. I understand it’s not your problem if u made the deal as is for cash. A person has to be willing to give some . I would be sour also . Did they sign paperwork contingent that the house passes inspection knowing full well it wouldn’t. I would be very disappointed in the realtor. I think I would tell them all I decided to pull it from the market and Finnish it.
  16. Yes combine late October or mid November, have combined the after the first also . These didn’t look like much but ran like 1800lbs a acre
  17. Good thing this isn’t political, I’d rather not talk about the young man who wanted to buy a M who can’t afford to drive his pickup to pick it up much less gas to tinker with it . It will become like many things a lost dream to many.
  18. I was told u flip the differential over so u have the forward gears going backwards? Not gave that much thought.
  19. So what r u pulling the drills with ? Looks like a nice modern setup with a old twist tractor ??
  20. Someone probably had one on before ?
  21. To be honest I’ve thought maybe summer fallowing a large portion might be cheapest
  22. Might wanna go with 18.4x38s then
  23. There’s a point you need to do a complete rebuild or new motor, But it’s kinda about value for me . I’ve spent the $23 for the oring and usually $90 for rod bearings . this has worked for me on combines and tractors. No regrets and ready to do it again
  24. Remember a old cowpokes cartoon. If we’re gonna buy hay bales for $2 and sell hay bales for $2 we’re gonna have to get a bigger truck 😳
