    More Scenic Nebraska

    Rather than hijack Lorenzo's thread I thought I would start a new one since Delta Dirt was asking for more pictures of Nebraska. These were from my time working and having fun on a northeast Nebraska farm, ranch, and feedyard. Nebraska isn't all corn and flatland. I'm of the opinion that I lived in the best part of Nebraska. Close to the sandhills, cropland, rolling hills, some flatland, and rugged hills around the town of Center. It was a nice mix A true harvest moon The beginnings of the storm that developed the tornado that destroyed Pilger, Nebraska. We were AIing south of Newport. Place my wife and I lived. A random dust storm rolling in from the west.

    More Scenic Nebraska

    Unless they fixed the road up there I doubt anyone will move in. Last time I went through it was terrible. Pavement was falling apart.

    More Scenic Nebraska

    We ran cows on a 1000 acre pasture north of Center. No cross fences and alot of deep draws. Ridges just wide enough for single file. It was the roughest country I have been in outside of mountains. Them cows could easily hide in there. We always had some renegades in there. We got knocked off our horses by trees, climbed hills leading our horses just clawing up some of those hills trying to stay with pairs. At the end of the day your clothes were full of cedar needles but it sure was fun. Been by Devils Nest. Almost due north of where we lived along the river. Little bar/grill we frequented in Lindy had pictures of Festus from Gunsmoke at Devils Nest promoting it. That is a nice drive. We drove it every time we came home to Missouri to visit.

    Chimney rock and near by photos

    North of Highway 20 in northeast Nebraska is pretty hilly as well.

    I hate mud

    I'm tired of it and I dont have that many critters to feed. My neighbors and me all have 2wd tractors and it's getting to be a real pain to feed. I've been feeding some for one neighbor. He cant get around with his 560 or 450 but so far between my 806 and my old 79 Chevy with bale spikes I've got everyone fed. We have been getting some form of moisture every week and constantly going between frozen and thawed. Luckily we haven't had any health problems in cattle yet.

    What would OSHA say about this one?

    I've seen very similar when I was working in an oil refinery on the U.S. Virgin Island of St. Croix. All of the islanders that worked there had their mass of nasty hair pulled through the back of the hardhat between the top and ratchet. I never saw one to the extent of that picture but close.

    M&W HC7 Disc Mower

    I recently picked up a used 9' M&W HC7 disc mower to use on my small operation. I have never been around a M&W and wondering if anyone on here had ever been around one. I'm going to need a few parts and I'm not finding any aftermarket support outside of knives and knife bolts. I can still get OEM through Rhino Ag. It was made in Japan for M&W but I haven't figured out the manufacturer. It looks similar to an older Krone. The cutter bar and gearbox are tight but I need some bushings on the pivot and lift pins are missing. Mostly just curious if anyone knows who made it for M&W and if they know of any aftermarket support. Thanks.

    M&W HC7 Disc Mower

    Thank you sir. Alamo does own what's left of M&W now. I found a parts breakdown and parts list on German Bliss Implements website fo the HC7 but it is listed as a Rhino Ag model now. Which is in Gibson City. I need to get a manual ordered for it sometime as well. Does the main gearbox on your HC5 share oil with the cutterbar? That's what it appears like on mine. I just got it home Friday and haven't had much time to dig in to it yet. Have you had pretty good luck with yours? I'm used to New Holland style cutterbars but the price was right on this one.

    question patrol grader vs end loader plowing snow

    Our county cant afford good gravel. They screen it from the creeks and a fair amount of roads dont get graded very often. Gravel also doesnt stay put on rock slabs that some parts of our roads have.

    question patrol grader vs end loader plowing snow

    Trucks won't work here in Osage County Missouri to grade roads. To many boulders, wash outs with every heavy rain, very few bridges mostly slab crossings or gravel crossings to maintain. You can't clean out ditches with a truck. If we get a heavy rain the ditch may jump out and cut the road and then fill the rest of the ditch with rock. Definitely grader country here.

    The cattle thread

    I'm back in the hills of Missouri now but I lived in northeast Nebraska for awhile. We pastured most of the 1000 pairs 1-2 hours west of the main farm and feedlot in the edge of the sandhills. Brought them home in the fall and to the calving pastures in February. Then out to pasture when calving was done. Raised corn soybeans and hay back on the home place. Mostly all center pivot irrigated. Weaned calves and fattened our own and bought calves for our 1000 head feedyard. Feedyard was one of my responsibilities as I lived there. That's how things were done there. Around where I live now in this area of Missouri pastures and hay ground are mixed with woods and are considerably smaller patches but it is definitely cattle country just a different way than Nebraska.

    The cattle thread

    Our first calf born on our place last October. It was a long time coming starting from scratch but things are coming together. Neighbors cows that I take care of as well as my heifers enjoying last weeks polar vortex. Last calf out of my heifers. Momma wasn't to keen on nursing but she came around now she is a great mother. Heifers with our little girl shortly after we bought them. 700 bred cows we trailed 15 miles to calving pasture when I worked on a Ranch in Nebraska. That's me on the palomino.

    756 power beyond?

    https://www.batescorp.com/529910r93-hyd-remote-valve-open-faced.html That valve will work or a 383267R92 will work as well. Both open sided valves.

    756 power beyond?

    Your Ebay link is not a remote valve. That is the right hand seat support and where the hydraulic supply comes in. You need two open on both side inner valves. 66 series remote valves fit just like 56 and 06 series if I'm not mistaken. I believe the only difference is some are rated for higher pressure in the 66 series. Not 100% on that. I just swapped my outer with an inner on my 806 and am in the process of making a power beyond plate.

    Best work boots. For the price

    I own three pairs of boots. Work boots are Double H 1592 steel toe work western. Made in USA. I wont get a year out of them but I've never had a pair of daily use boots make it a year. I'm hard on boots and every brand or style I've tried has worn out in a different way. The 1592's wear out on the inside about the same time they start throwing heels. Nice boots are Double H Buckaroos and a pair of Muck chore boots for the deep sh...stuff.

    Barn pictures

    Here is my barn. I dont remember the exact dimensions but it's good size. It has lean to's on three sides. Nice big loft.

    Chevy transmission

    It should be a SM 465 if it's a 4 speed. I cant find any evidence of any other 4 speed in 1990. It will be a cast iron case with PTO covers on each side and an aluminum top cover. The 5 speed will be all aluminum.

    New Navistar trucks

    From what I've read the gas engine is supposed to be 6.6 liter as well. One of my fellow techs at work was previously a truck and medium duty tech at a Chevy dealer and they sold a lot of medium Chevy trucks through the years. He said when GM discontinued them that was the stupidest thing they ever did. They had so many fleets running them it made no sense.

    Chevy transmission

    I dont believe it is a square body. It would be the 88-98 body style. I have seen a couple IFS 3/4 tons with the aluminum top SM465 that had a 4th gear switch to signal the ECM for cruise. Last year for a 465 was 91. I believe the light duty transmission you are referring to in a half or heavy half would be the 5 speed HM290 or 5LM60. They were light duty and basically junk when broke. Aluminum case with integral bellhousing.

    New Navistar trucks

    That's the new GM medium duty body. It appears they are running the Duramax and Allison combination as well.
