  1. Sounds like two neighbors that don't stop and talk to each other ever, too busy for even two minute hello. Also sounds like one side couldn't or wouldn't keep there animals in and the other side was short fused and irrational. Another case where "Respect thy neighbor" was forgotten and replaced by "selfish me".
  2. As stated above, check everything else, but that was the 1st indication something was wrong, rebuilt our hydro pump and motor 2 years later.
  3. There was a reason for firing squads and hanging, this is one of them in my opinion
  4. Somebody updated the parts machine already from the original bigger shaft to the smaller shaft
  5. Got it I know the panels, didn't recognize the name. Thanks
  6. Yep, the only hydros around were feeding tractors and there weren't many of them and most have been scrapped ten years ago already. All were on rough operations.
  7. Really? I am surprised that would be rare at all, I guess I never paid attention to the rarity. Unfortunately, it will be much nicer to run our hay stacker without the cab. A rollbar and canopy will keep us out of the sun and in the breeze.
  8. But the cab will be the right price๐Ÿ˜‰
  9. I am also going to put a 2 post rollbar and canopy on it, a local fab shop will build it. Will it interfere with the fenders? Going to have the tires set at 60" on center.
  10. Sounds like you need to make a trip to Michigan and pick up a cab๐Ÿ˜‰
  11. We pulled the trigger on two hydro's out of Nebraska. The 186 is pretty good and had a nice surprise of a turbo under the hood. The 100 seems solid but it needs to lose the cab, extremely poor visibility for what we want to use it for. My question, after cab removal, what do I need besides fenders? I am assuming I need a platform also?
  12. Wow, I just contracted dryer propane for around $1.20
  13. That takes a lot a skill to be that dumb.
  14. We put in a used specialty rotor about 10 years ago in our 1460 and it made a whole new combine out of it. We run keystock grates and she does a beautiful job in everything but corn. I have to slow the rotor way down in order to not grind corn.
  15. I have no affiliation, just putting this out there. https://www.bidnow.us/auctions/6505-september-26th-tuesday-john-bezemek-equipment-reduction-online-auction
  16. Not crazy about the tractor, but the decals have nostalgia.
  17. We are looking to add a hydro to the fleet and I am wanting to avoid issues and familiarize myself a bit. Trying to avoid the "you didnt know that" situation. I know you can't tow them in range, but is it safe to tow them with the range shifter in neutral? Should I be able to take off under load in high range? I would assume so. I would also assume that shifting range on the go would be a no-no? Assuming higher rpm's is better for the hydro, at what rpm should it be ran for normal things around the yard? Is stationary work hard on them, like running an auger? Running an agbagger, just put it in neutral range? I am very familiar with gear drive 66 amd 86 series, but i have never driven a hydro, please educated me.
  18. There's a lot of questions that I am not sure I want answered from that picture.
  19. We have baled on Nov 5th in I think 2019. Was the best hay we baled all year, likely never do that again.
  20. What you talking about Y2K was disastrous. ๐Ÿ™„
  21. Not so much, but oh well. The hay is green enough, fluffing it today and it should be OK. First time we have had hay rained on in 4 or 5 years.
