  1. I took the battery with me and had it on the charging rack in the shop or bring them in the house with me in winter. When leaving any gas machine in the field I take the rotor out of the distributor so no one can mess with it, knock on wood no one's taken a tractor but I had a old 990 haybine stolen
  2. He said AC people are special so I guess in his hart of harts I am special then.
  3. I like Alice in chains nutshell alot I know GNR is pretty over played and quite over rated but GNR civil war is pretty good. I have yet to find any def Leppard I don't like same for the older ZZ top stuff. My all time least favorites are anything pearl jam or worse yet Nickelback.
  4. I am wondering if anyone has mowed it with one of those old new idea cutditioners with the big flails. I used one once in old growth meadow hay and it broke it up into perfect 4-6 inch blades and made decent sheep feed.
  5. I usually aim for 1 cut and hopefully have another 1-2 feet of regrowth for plow down. Two years ago it was too wet and it got away from me so I don't get to hay it and was about 8 feet tall when I plowed it under.
  6. Central MN. 4-5 days usually I have the rolls on my mower pretty tight and drive slower to make sure it get time to crimp well
  7. I do't have any experience grazing it how ever I do grow 20-40 acers a year for haying. I wonder if it could be high in nitrates being that short. My understanding is the plant starts off toxic then grows out of it and the toxins dilute as there is more plant tissue. I believe that the leaves are highest in toxins and that is why they recommend not grazing the regrowth until it's a few feet tall. Is it pure Sudan grass or a sorghum Sudan? As they are too very different animals when it comes to toxicity sorghum hybrids usually being more risky then pure Sudan grasses like Piper
  8. The local subway now has a $15 dollar foot long. Just the sandwich nothing else $15 so much for the$5 foot long.
  9. Saw a M muffler on a civic before
  10. I bought a 560 awhile back at an auction for a couple hundred bucks with the radiator and some of the tin missing the motor was locked up and I have sense gotten it loose. The tractor will not roll on the right side even with the breaks completely removed from the tractor on that side. The shifter lever shifts into all gears smoothly the tractor also has a hole hacked in the hood with a big pre cleaner sticking through the hood and a dry air filter held onto the fuel tank frame with self tapping screws. There is also a pipe coming off the oil drain plug at the bottom of the pan maybe a turbo return line? I think someone had a turbo on it at one time and was using it for heavy tillage until something went in the rear end and then the motor got suck from rain water and maybe robbed the radiator for another tractor? Would this be considered the later head with bigger valves?
  11. I haven't been to any auctions sense spring and I saw a mechanically nice 4500 hour 1466 go for $4200. I have seen 560s on marketplace or craigslist for $3500 for clapped out gas ones through $6-10+ for diesels it seems a bit outrageous. Even non running people are asking $1500-2500. Is a 560 the hot new thing?
  12. The neighbor has one 8000+ hours and still going strong he uses it on the 14 wheel rake and for a auger tractor. It used to do all the spraying planting and cultivating with a 6 row front mount cultivator
  13. We have had the Milwaukee 3 years sense father's day and have yet to have a issue. It came as a set with a small and large battery,charger,and 1/2 inch impact gun it helps the batteries are rarely under 50 degrees . My favorite is the adjuster for how many pumps it gives
  14. We are relatively flat with slight rolls only one real "hill" and within the next few years will have 80 acers of hay all within a half mile of home
  15. I am considering replacing my kicker racks with a stack wagon as I am tired of getting 15 bales so bent out of shape that they need to be re-baled to be presentable. Accumulator grapples are out because of lack of loader tractors or skid loaders and cost.
  16. Has anyone have any experience with them?
  17. Somewhat off topic. I don't care for j.i. case tractors however I worked for a guy chisel plowing with a 4890 case with the big 674cube swedish diesel in it and 3 speed powershift man would that thing grunt. One time I was chisel plowing where sewer trucks had been dumping all winter and you could have landed a jumbo jet on that field it was packed hard I was in low range 2ed gear and I would hit the hard spots the front end would come off the ground 2-3 feet and the thing would just keep crawling and lugging away that thing has to have the most torque of any tractor I have driven. Kinda sad the same guy had a cih 9280 and the 'ol case would put that 855 Cummins to shame, the guy ended up selling the 9280 and 12 bottom plow but kept the 45 foot digger 15 foot chisel and 30 foot disc and the 4890 handles them well.
  18. As of now it will be hand stacked however I am going to be looking for a bale wagon as I am getting fed up with trying to make 45-55lb bales of fluffy grass that stay square for horse people. My baler makes a beautiful 60-70 lb brick however the horse people are too picky and seam to care more about bale shape then contents and they don't like the big bales cause they are too heavy for them weaklings and the baler makes a good 50# bale however they get bent out of shape when they hit the rack sides and most stay crooked no matter how much I try.
  19. Thank you everyone for the response. The spot of the stack is on well drained sand I am hoping to only have to do this the one year.
  20. I know anything would be better however I am going to have more hay then my shed can handle and do not have the funds available to add on. What I can afford is free pallets and a few good quality tarps. I am in MN so good covering is a must. Anyone have experience with storing little bales out doors through winter? The bale would be 12-1500 alfalfa,12-1500 meadow grass, and what ever I get from 40 acers of Sudan grass. My only options are small squares as I do not have any way to bale or move round bales, I experimented with good success selling and baling small square straight Sudan grass if it turns out to be more than I can handle I will turn it under before rye this fall.
