  1. well... everything but the shields / guards are done. I'm running out of time. I need to spread manure before planting. If I get them done and on, it'll be great. But if not, I'll have to take it to the field without.
  2. In the second picture, that pile of rust is the main angle. hahaha, it was toast! From there, every part / bolt / bushing came apart. Everything got painted as an individual part, and put back together. I have never done a restore project quite like that before, but it sure was fun to do!
  3. Hahaha, that's a good question. It will be used to spread bed pack manure, only from 12 hd. / year (so at least it won't have to work to hard). But to be honest, I'd hate to use it at all. Before the project started it was completely rotted out. Fixed the frame, rebuilt cross members, the whole nine. Then it snow-balled into a complete re-do. Some new parts, but used everything that I could re-work.
  4. Attached is the latest and greatest of the rebuild. Pretty happy with the way things are turning out... especially knowing what it looked like to begin with.
  5. I appreciate you attaching those pictures. Thank you. I haven't been on here for a while, as you can tell. A friend of mine brought up a good point of looking in the operators manual. Luckily, he was correct, they were in there. Once I get a minute, I'll get them made and stuck on the spreader.
  6. To be honest, I'm not sure. But I'd certainly appreciate it either way! The red one I can pretty well figure out. That one shouldn't be a problem. But the yellow one - not quite sure what the text says.
  7. Yeah, I go to Messicks for part numbers as well. All dealerships I have talked to so far said it's no longer available. So I figured I'd get the correct verbage and custom make new ones.
  8. I have been charging $2.65 / lb. hanging weight. I pass the kill ($90/hd), cut, wrap ($.70/lb.) charge to the customer. Everyone seems pretty content with the price. Had a few customers put a bit extra on for a tip as well.
  9. I'm not sure if this is the right place to be posting this - but figured a few of you guys/gals probably have a similar manure spreader. So, I have recently found myself doing a total paint job to our 680 NH Manure Spreader. Frame rusted out a couple years back, so I fixed that and painting each part as I put it back together. The slight issue I'm having at the moment is getting the correct lettering for the two front warning stickers. I figured I could buy a decal kit from NH to put on the freshly painted front panel, so I sandblasted them off without taking pictures for reference. Yesterday I tried to order the decal kit, only to find out they are no long available. Any chance anyone would like to send a picture or two of those decals?
