    The one that is the worst is the media reporting a murderer or the like as a " gentleman" Omg 

    The media must have gotten the new Woke upgrade software. Advanced spell corrector. 

    Found this comment elsewhere:

    The word "field" is a racial slur according to the woke community. Perhaps "acreage" would be acceptable.  image.gif.8ec7bd565e8b22fb94ab89e73a671a26.gif

    I was once corrected giving directions. ‘And then go straight’.

    Apparently ‘straight’ is now a stereotype slur. The driver was just kidding but it made my blood boil. I wonder what spell checker would have chosen.

  2. I bought this near Carbon Alberta and brought it into Montana with nothing more than a hand written receipt. Border patrol/customs/whatever was very pleasant to deal with. Unlike the primates at the Ontario border into Michigan. Felt like I was going up before a firing squad for bringing plow parts across the border.1BBC890E-550E-4327-8B37-C6A8C62E2432.thumb.jpeg.e9e9b94e6591c17775053e7589889692.jpeg

  3. I ordered a new flasher switch for a Case through eBay and did not get what was represented in the listing. 

    Pic shows Made In U.S.A.  It did not show that on the part I received. It said nothing of the sort. The box indicates from India. FCS35. 
    I confronted the seller about that:

    Hi There,

    This is the only one we currently have available. I've notified the according team about this listing & it will be revised. 

    The pic wasn’t removed yet but they raised the price by more than $10.00 of what I paid last week  


  4. California allows for tongue transfer weight. My rear hitch can handle 2000 lbs of weight and tow 20,000 lbs. Depending on balance, keeping a record of where my equipment should be parked at on my 16k trailer, I can haul a payload of 13,700 lbs. 

    To help calculate my tongue weight, I just by chance remembered recently, having this scale lying around. I’ve had it for years. Still works and calibration is spot on. The hooks are rated at 2200 lbs  9C24A257-C3FE-4297-AED1-AF70742FE7F8.thumb.jpeg.8fab5273c5584db6ec1675f8e72d80a7.jpeg

  5. Bought all new tires for my 5250 back in October 2019 (pic). The rears were $3200 dismounted and mounted in Alberta Canada. Bought all new tires for the dually early last year. Haven’t mounted the rears yet but did pay up front for the service. 9874706E-4956-468F-ABC5-F09C6FA405BC.thumb.jpeg.1c5ce49a96571b2fa421064a15a8ff05.jpeg

    Jack Mehoff sound familiar?

    I actually saw this name listed in the Chula Vista, California phone book near San Diego in the mid ‘70’s. Was in the navy back then.

  7. Dad bought new a 656 utility gas hydro. We would have been better off painting it yellow. After a year IH credited dad 100% of money spent and we got a 656 utility diesel standard trans, TA. And it’s still in the family.

  8. I’ve been very lucky buying over the internet. Mainly Craigslist. Probably 14 plows, a Kewanee disc, a Quicke 660 loader, Maschio flail mower, Case 5300 grain drill & on & on and just today a crazy powerful motorcycle in Virginia. The iPhone and its FaceTime have been my guiding eye. And it’s great for sizing up the person I’m dealing with. I’ve met a lot of nice people this way and stay in contact with many of them. 

  9. It’s the lay of the land.  The pipe reach’s to a low area north. That development is either level with or even lower than the rise requiring a 35’ dig.

    It was amazing to watch the choreograph of those four excavators.
    Two CAT 390F diggers - one digs it’s load, backs up and dumps along the end of the dirt pile, the other unloads on the side of the pile.

    The two CAT 349F diggers - one on top of the pile, the other moves the dirt to continue the length of the pile. 
    All of it was a very smooth moving operation.

  10. I had a ‘68 Roadrunner in ‘71 & ‘72 then my sister totaled it minutes after I left for the Navy boot camp. Then another ‘68 in ‘74 or 75. Used to drag race that one near LA. Then in 1980 a ‘69 Dodge Charger RT SE. A guy gave me the car and $500 for my ‘50 Panhead with a blown engine. That RT was probably the most beautiful car I ever owned.  I’ve got a ‘66 Satellite right now.
