  1. Do mine on the Weber big kettle, I'd bet cowboy Kent Rollins is a good one to try. I'll be watching his video when I get a chance.
  2. Chad Colby did a segment on Dakota Shine this morning. This week in Agri business. If the stuff works as shown may be worth the costs
  3. The DOT must of wanted a bigger fish to fry! I would of never been so lucky. Got caught with a grain head on I-75, end dividers hanging over on curb side. Made me park it, go home and get tools to remove on a 215 JD. Added 600 dollars to the price of that head.
  4. Dave that's a good looking burner and a safe looking backer and flooring. What model stove, wondering if it's still made? Your running the whole house on fan only to return cold air back to the top? Oh, catalyst stove or reburn tubes? See the temp gauge just before the ceiling.
  5. No till min till and strip till have been around for years and the old boys modified old planters, cultivators, and tool bars long before a Soil Warrior was ever brought to the drawing board. With older lower HP tractors pulling they're home made rigs.
  6. Search home made strip till.. Some guys are very creative and have done it right, others not so much. Think of the dry placed below the seed vs 2 by 2 placement. Just a starter mix 4"to 6"down and your roots grow to it! Thoughts??
  7. If it was affordable I would use a strip till with narrow shanks behind the coulter's. Deep placing fertilizer of the back side of the shanks, deep probe soil tests usually show lack of nutrients deep in the soil profile. Studies have shown that tillage adds oxygen and breaks down corn stalks, and you'll never gain any organic matter in your soil, don't disturb your harvested crop roots, corn and wheat decaying roots are the key to building OM. Soys have much less so I would never till soy stubble.
  8. Correct on the proper lubes for the gear boxes. On 1440 think you have to remove the rotor dip stick and use a suction gun. May have to use a suction gun on the front PTO box as well Move this thread to the tech page and you get more advice than here. Seems that the procedures are in the o/o manual for changing out the lubes. Run large wire bars in all the positions all wires in, removed the cover plates on the front. Keystock grates with serrated bars. 540 on the rotor and 2-3 on the concave Does a nice job
  9. Does your 1480 have the accumulator and the A,B,C valves? I don't think so, but on my 1440 if I don't have the nitrogen pre charge and the three valves set right AHHC won't work at all. 79 model before electro hydraulics.
  10. Nate read the post 1688 with 1020 header. Check the cable and sensing rod has to move freely, is there debris between the adjustable fingers and the tops of the support runners. Right and left ends not binding and full range of motion.
  11. Owning a line up like that is quite an achievement, makes getting a good night's sleep allot easier!
  12. Some get it done in style with no worries about def and computer chips. Bill what's your opinion of the ez guide 250, nice straight line, what is the unit of to the right, looks like it says omc, rate/boom control?
  13. I'm sure it does, will check with the guy that replaced a solenoid for me, it also had 2 small posts, would not energize the solenoid with small wire hooked to the wrong post.
  14. Do you really need the strap if ya are running a cable operated 1020?
