  1. I went to a sale a few years ago with my dad that had a 237 Deere picker mounted on a 560. I went because he said he was going to buy it. I can’t remember what it brought, but he chickened out at the last minute. The tractor and picker were in fantastic shape.
  2. I don’t see how someone can say they don’t like it here and then go to Facebook instead. Facebook has all the problems of Red Power x 100. It’s sad that some places on the Internet are little more than a place to run your mouth from a safe distance.
  3. There’s quite a few TD-15’s and 175’s of various vintages around here. Those are by far the most popular models around here.
  4. I don’t think he’s gonna get that message unless they have RP in Heaven.
  5. If you can get the bills paid, I would call it good personally. This is hardly the biggest rip off that the taxpayers of this country need to worry about.
  6. Were there two way plows that can steer? The only ones I have seen have been fully mounted, which wouldn’t work here unless they were very small. Fully mounted plows bigger than a 4-14 wouldn’t work here in the hills.
  7. I suppose moldboard plowing is more fun when it is not the only way to get a crop in the ground. I haven’t plowed much since we stopped raising tobacco. The tobacco setter had a runner as the opener and it always seemed nearly impossible to get the dirt in the right shape. That setter did not like dead furrows or clods. It just seemed like work to me. I sure liked an on land hitch better than in furrow. There is currently a tree growing through the frame on the 2450 Deere plow I need to cut.
  8. I don’t have a D282, but from how often this comes up it seems like these engines are becoming almost unserviceable. I can’t believe as many of these engines as there are out there that you can’t get a good head gasket. Surely someone will market a usable one in the near future? I know demand can’t be what it once was, but it sure seems like there are a lot of people looking for a good gasket.
  9. I’ve never seen one if those before. It looks neat for sure. Has anybody ever actually seen one of those in use?
  10. Some guys here tried raising 20” corn in the 60’s. They gave up because they said it was too hard to cultivate. They also had some serious problems with the corn falling down when planted in 20” rows. I’m pretty sure they were using Gleaner combines and heads. I don’t know if the heads were widely available then or if they were experimental. There used to be lots of experimental Allis/Gleaner stuff around here because we are close to where the old factory was in Independence.
  11. I set the turbo and exhaust elbow on the manifold just to see what I am dealing with. It is a 3LM turbo as opposed to the old Solar that would not fit the new center section. The exhaust elbow looks good, it even fits the old hole in the hood. The new turbo is going to require the air intake piping to have to be reworked. It looks like the turbo oil supply and drain can be made to work with just a little bit of work. The old air piping is all the wrong size now. I might head to a truck parts house and see if I can come up with anything that will work.
  12. Years ago there were guys applying 10 lbs here.
  13. If we lost Enlist, that would be a major blow here. Extend, on the other hand, nobody here uses anyway. It is too dangerous. It can’t be applied here in a safe manner. If we could put on 5 lbs of atrazine, it would be a good tool. But at 2 lbs max rate, it is basically useless here.
  14. I have the same problem here, no good shops around. I had a thread on it on here awhile back. Maybe you can ship it somewhere. You might also consider calling a salvage yard that has access to a good one. There are a lot of yards in the Midwest. Cylinder Head Repair Recommendations
  15. I’m not for banning much of anything, but we don’t even use atrazine anymore. We raise a lot of corn and when I started running the sprayer years ago I got sick of dealing with it. I thought it made the sprayer harder to clean out, plugged up the strainers/nozzles and there wasn’t much benefit from using it. We raise RR corn and always had to make a post emerge application anyway. I don’t miss the aggravation of dealing with it at all and I can’t tell any difference at all in weed control. Of course this is “here” and YMMV.
