  1. That is my baby. Terrible starting, but I love it anyway. 800, that I paid $400 for. Other than putting an alternator on it, I have not spent any money on it. Guess Lisa bought a seat for it when we moved here. The old one rusted off and dumped her over backwards. It leaks engine oil, hydraulic oil, torque converter oil, and diesel fuel, but none of which are bad enough for me to fix!☺️ Lisa has a 830 Comfort King with a CaseoMatic and I HATE it.
  2. Wind got a hold of the tin on the barn the other day. Lisa rented a 45 foot man lift and we repaired everything. While we were up in the air, Lisa got some cool pictures of the corrals we have built. Only things original are the solid corner and the west fence in the first 2 pictures.
  3. And they are still chopping! Was through there Thursday. Lots of pivots there don’t have enough water to raise the corn that was planted on them. That area, it’s not uncommon to see choppers running from May through November.
  4. I would seriously look into a Midsota trailer. I used to think that a triple axle trailer was the only way to go, but I pulled a 26 +6 foot tandem axle and now own a 20+5 tandem trailer and on concrete highways, the tandem trailer rides better, behind my 4 door dually. If you’re mainly on gravel roads and asphalt roads, I like the triple axles more. I have a PJ trailer now. This is the second one and there’s not going to be a third. I had a 26+6, Titan triple axle and should never have sold it. It had 3, 9000 pound axles with solid 17.5 wheels. Pulled easy and could handle more weight than my tandem dually trailer. Other thing to consider is the length of area over the axles as to where you need to put the load. The triple axles are more flexible as to getting to much weight on the tow vehicle. The next tractor hauler will be a 48 foot spread axle drop deck with ramps. No matter what you get now, you will always want something different. Did this yesterday hauling a man lift home
  5. Don’t get out much do you, if you only know where 1 is.
  6. Even if these diesels were tier 4 emissions, which the truck one isn’t, they are no way as restricted emissions wise as an on highway vehicle. AND, the big selling point for Biden was that all the energy will be produced by wind and solar.
  7. Pretty much says it all!!
  8. I have hauled a neighbor’s fence jumping bull to the sale barn before. Some people should not own livestock especially if they don’t work or live on the ranch.
  9. https://www.gillettenewsrecord.com/news/wyoming/article_d03179d6-c744-529e-a74b-2a39791e342d.html?fbclid=IwAR0iIVoxeaB0w4yJ87381pfGQX8D0f8buKZCtKtdxx1CCRy6sOCnqBVFk4E_aem_AWHIM0iJU5tjIoT2DGGV3UWVmqUs4Naeguw9B3hK82A4-oHZv4EhchRn34j5_Tf7DwA I have been frustrated with neighbors cattle being out, but I guess I always figured that the fence was both of ours to fix.
  10. Yeah, but my wide open shop gets damp if we ever get rain. I probably have enough tractors until I get them all back in working order, then I’ll add to them.
  11. I tried to buy it, but I had just ordered a steel building and my wife took my check book and cards😡
  12. Tim probably hurt his feelings! Eviction is not legal anymore!
  13. I would take a coon any day over the black bear I watched the video of that climbed up the tree with the hunter
  14. Supposedly there is a shop in Iowa, I think, that will do that on 30 series Case heads. They are obsolete though any dealers.
  15. We used them for bottomless tanks. Dad sold a few rings for a “round pen” at a feed lot. (Like in starting horses)
  16. I lied. Mine is a 5 bar. Sorry. Must have been thinking of my father in law’s John Deere rake.
  17. I know a guy that did that, problem was the horse wasn’t nearly as broke as he was told. Awful hard to bail out when they are in runaway mode. No, he isn’t Amish, but he did have the Amish start Scooter!
  18. I’m somewhat of a social drinker. Home alone I might go a couple months without drinking alcohol. Lisa home and I will have 1 or 2 with her. Rarely do I have any if I am not at home. I have been around people who can’t stop. If they have 1, they have to drink it all. I admire your fortitude! Like Robert, my addiction is work, or at least being busy.
  19. They are getting along okay. Dolly gets tired of him and lashes out at times but for the most part they get along well. He is growing!

    They shipped a number of beef cows to Russia and the region back in mid 2000’s. They were loaded into an aircraft. A number of Nebraska ranchers or their subordinates went over to teach them how to take care of them. I haven’t heard anything about that in 9 or more years. Got away from the ranch world and lost track of them. Guys I talked to said it was a totally different experience.
  21. That has to be the first of the merger tractors. I thought Dads 570Super was a 67 model and they sure weren’t an Oliver rebadged
  22. I bought a 56 a few years ago for $300? The dogs in the hub had failed and they made it a solid drive axle. Seems to work ok. I raked maybe 3 acres with it since I got it and it picked up ok. Mine is only a 4 bar, but has the ability to be a 5 bar, the holes are there. If I was dealing with much fine grass, I’d make sure to get a 5 bar rake
