  1. I built mine. I couldn't see paying for a new one or a good used one for my small herd. Eventually as my herd grows I'll upgrade to one with squeeze ability but this one beats using junk or nothing. I used a couple heavy 8 foot corral panels, a foremost headgate that had barely been used that I traded some work for and an alley slide to build it. I might have $500 in materials. Only thing I didn't do ,which I need to soon, is add some rebar to the floor for traction.
  2. Given the choice I would sure like to move back to Nebraska again. Its different cow country than here. Around here there isn't the wide open spaces. I think one of the reasons there are so many cow herds in Missouri is everybody and their brother has at least 5 or 10 cows including myself. Dont get me wrong there are some large operations. My neighbors run around 700 head. I still miss Nebraska though.
  3. Nebraska has the top 3 counties yet has less total head in the state than Missouri which has no counties on the list.
  4. I was running the 806. The TL80 doesnt have the balls to pull that baler with a full bale in some of the hills so the 806 is my choice. To tell you the truth even if the TL80 did have more ponies I would still use the 806.
  5. Put the test to my new to me hay equipment the last few days. I'm pretty happy with it all. Baler had some hiccups with tieing but it's all worked out now. I love the Kubota disc mower. In years past I just brought trade ins home from work and used them. Never failed I would get one all lined out and working decent and a salesman would sell it and I would have to find another or what we had for trade ins was completely worn out. Owning my own has been much better so far. I've also more than doubled hay ground this year so I needed to make the purchase. The hay yielded average. Baled around 110 bales yesterday. The New Holland isn't mine. It is borrowed and keeps the wife and kid comfortable while raking. We just missed a storm shortly after I finished baleing last night. Had a good lightning show.
  6. I was wondering about you all Curtis. I knew it had to be close.
  7. From Eldon through to Jeff City got hit pretty hard with a tornado. Missouri River at Jeff is also due to crest tomorrow at its 7 highest level in history.
  8. A fair amount of baleage was put up here last week. Some dry too. I baled a little dry. Didn't yield that well. Plenty of moisture just need some sun. This moisture will help regrowth where I already put up hay though.
  9. I spent a little time on a 4020 disking with that transmission and used a 4430 with it and I never had any trouble. 4430 had a loader and I mainly used it for moving and stacking hay. 2nd reverse to fifth forward was perfect for that. Just one straight movement forward or back with the shifter. I think that's the same reason I prefer IH 06 series pattern over the 56-66 for loader work too.
  10. Yep the check and spring are not there. That's what happens when you tear down a tractor in November, finally get back to it in February and do the TA and MCV, and then dont get engine parts back from the machine shop until now. You forget things. Thanks for your help.
  11. Surely I did. I didn't look when I pulled the mcv off earlier though. I guess that would let all the flow dump though. I'll feel like a dumb*** if that's what I did. I'll check when I get off lunch.
  12. I've got a 966 here at work that I did an engine overhaul, TA, MCV, MCV pump. Runs great but I have no lube pressure or TA pressure. Steering works great but no brakes. I'm not getting any pressure to build on the steering return circuit which supplies the TA clutches. What could possibly be causing the return flow to dump instead of build pressure? I have pulled the MCV and taken it apart again and all the gaskets look great and all the spools are in correctly. I do get flow from the return port if I remove the regulator spool and crank the engine. I'm completely stumped as well as one of our older mechanics. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  13. Yes. It is getting old. I wish my big shop at home had a roof and walls. I worked on what I could in my little shed this morning but the rest I need to do outside so I'm shutdown until it stops. O well. Cant cut hay yet anyway.
  14. It will not work without electrical power. Found that out a couple of weeks ago.
  15. That does appear to be one of those sealing rings in the clutch packs although all of the ones I just replaced were yellow. 180 is a little older than the 305 I just did though. I couldn't really determine what they did unless it was to slow oil flow out of the clutch to aid in lube of the discs. I could have showed you one when you were in here to get parts the other day Curtis.
