  1. I’d imagine a tripple mower alone cost more than our antique 1066’s with 10’ discbines. We stay with 10’6 cut, to keep the rows small enough, for drying
  2. He’s a lap dog for sure, but he can’t be comforted when anything is rumbling or booming in the sky. If we’re outside, and a Dark cloud rolls in….he goes inside to hide. I’ve tried to hold him wrapped in a blanket, and he’ll tolerate it because he thinks I want him to, but he seems most comfortable when he can go and pick his own spot.
  3. And tonight…..he’s hiding behind the shower curtain. Fireworks and thunder, his only two fears in the world.
  4. Brush hogging for guy that helps me do hay today. Weedy mess is as tall as the hood on the 1466. Usually use 115hp, but I knew to bring more today. I’m in third low with the ta pulled, at pto speed. Newer 8’ brush hog brand mower with “300hp” gearboxes and it has a slip clutch only.
  5. As patriotic as Colby is…..he wishes people would limit there fireworks to just one night. Found him in a tiny closet this morning.
  6. Case 75XT with 200 or 300 hours on it (looked like it’s just been setting been parked in a garage for 20 years) brought $31k up here a few weeks ago. I miss the one we had
  7. I was given an older Fill right pump 20 years ago, (and it was old then). Neighbor said it didn’t work. All it needed was the veins freed up, I probably use WD-40. I don’t remember there being any springs in that old pump and it’s still pumping fuel today
  8. 1850 sold locally for 11-12k last week, and ford 5000’s are even if 7k if they are rough.
  9. He mentioned losing weight, and spreading calcium on the driveway so I don’t think it’s going back in but I may have misread. I would’ve put it back in myself. I’ve never had a tubeless tire. Even when you buy new radials around here, the tire shops want to sell you a tube to put inside of them.
  10. I can’t buy a fancy A/C setup like Nebraska1206’s though, since I put this $100 radio in the way
  11. i want in too. I’m betting I have The only interior marker lights and 1970’s wood paneling.
  12. I have trapped 6 like that in the recent years. 45 years….never had a skunk….but now they come into the barn to eat cat food we leave out for the cats. Anyway, I have a neighbor that comes with a regular towel, leaves it half folded up, walks up very slowly, unfolds it and sets it over the trap, carry’s it away. He actually takes them back to his farm and releases them. Knees down, open trap, he says they walk out slow and never look at him. He does like them to be in the trap for 12-24hr, and he releases them near a puddle if he can find one. Says they go right to it. He’s got a bigger set than me though
  13. Probably to save $1. I’ve only ever seen the style that you have there, in person. I think it was the most common.
  14. Moved the rest of the stone this morning. Loader works normally. Thanks again. What exactly is that plug that I tightened? Tractor has 6k hours on it.
  15. How does gas start switch to Diesel work? I’ve never seen one. Does gas temporally run through some other portion the injection pump? Does it have a mini carburetor on it? I really have no idea. I’ve been meaning to try to look it up on a parts diagram so that I could maybe understand, as it’s been mentioned on here twice now within the last week. Thanks
  16. I was going to check the results shortly. Thanks
  17. when running the brush hog, or just driving around, the loader never settles. It will stay 4 feet off the ground all day. We’ve never had a cylinder fail internally. I’ve only had them leak where it’s visible on the outside.
  18. How would a guy check to make sure a cylinder was not bypassing? My idea that I was going to do (before reading here about the plug) was to put the loader up in the air, then support the weight of it with the skid steer, while unhooking the hoses as if you were going to dismount the loader, and then letting the skidsteer down, and seeing if the tractor loader stayed up on its own.
  19. you nailed it. The outer plug was tight but the small one in the middle was about an eighth or a quarter of a turn loose. I did not take time to pull back out of the garage and put the bucket on but it would barely lift the loader, its own weight, as I put it into the building at noon time and just now I put the attach coupler of my skid steer over top of the coupler plate on the tractor, and the tractor lifted up the front tires of the skid steer at idle. So I’m calling it good. Thank you very much.
  20. Pics because I think there are different styles of these and I don’t know what you guys would call this model. We call it under powered and thirsty
  21. Moving gravel with mx115, lift capacity just went down hill. Three point lifts good and I believe rear remotes work (it’s still hooked to a 10’ heavy three pt brush hog, only have the lift cylinders on it to judge by right now. What pump is shot? I’d find a better pic, but it’s time to go rake hay
  22. Have another coworker with the large Volkswagen SUV, it’s a lease so she’s not really concerned, but it needs the antifreeze topped off every so often
  23. It burn out at a good pace? Coworker has a ‘19 bmw car (large, pretty fancy, idk the model) but the Oil Light comes on every few weeks, he adds a half quart and goes another few weeks. I doubt he drives 400-500 miles a week. Dealership told him it’s normal, and gave him a 6 pack fancy box of quarts….like it’s a common thing. “Here we have this sturdy box, it stands up in the trunk nicely” keep it full
