  1. Rotary rakes seem to make the best windrows. I run either a NH Rollabar or a wheel rake. I prefer the wheel rake, makes better windrows, fewer parts, and can lift it up when you need to go over something. Nice work with the hay! Real nice set of tractors too.
  2. My wife bought a mini Jersey heifer a couple years ago for what seemed to be too good of a price. I need her with our mini Hereford bull to make sure she was fertile. A few days ago she dropped a bull calf. He seems to have mostly Hereford markings but with the frame of a Jersey. Now that I know she is a breeder we may AI her with a mini Jersey bull and keep fingers crossed for a full bred mini Jersey heifer calf.
  3. If that’s all original still I’d leave it that way. Work on the mechanicals as needed. Don’t see too many of that version M in any condition.
  4. Sometimes getting rained on when camping is much different than being outside all the time, or even just 2/3 of the year. Keeping it under a roof much as possible and out of direct sun and kept dry during freeze/thaw cycles is probably the biggest help I think the Dicor sealant works with aluminum.
  5. There’s a nice condition #10 drill coming up for auction soon. There are not grass boxes on the drill. Are those fairly easy to find and add on later? Any comments or things to look at/watch outs on that model drill?
  6. Very nicely done! I’m curious about the picker too. That would really be a show stopper with a restored picker mounted on it
  7. Would any of those have prevented this tragedy? Are any of these in place in certain states? Is gun violence less where rules such as these are in place?
  8. This is what I am thinking too. A bunch of hoses and tubing on the outside is going to be damaged much more easily in transport or use.
  9. So what can be done “to fix the problem”?
  10. Automatic weapons are illegal. This guy in TX didn’t have an automatic rifle. I haven’t heard which gun he used to shoot people in the school. I’ve read he also had a handgun(s) in his possession.
  11. Seems to be a lot of information left out of every news story I’ve read. Apparently the shooter murdered his grandmother and then fled and wrecked his car near the school. Was he planning to go to the school? How did he enter the school? Were police in pursuit of him when he wrecked?
  12. Most Knipex products are available on Amazon. If you can’t find it on US Amazon try one of the EU Amazon sites such as Amazon.de just make sure they ship to US. It takes a little longer than 2 Day Prime shipping but opens up a lot of options for tools not available in the US.
  13. Cutting hay with a front center mower and wings on the rear seems to be the most effective way to cover ground quickly.

    I’ve read that pumps on the west coast are being updated to be able go past $9.999 (+$10.000). Can anyone verify that claim?
  15. Search internet for “how to make a gif from video”
  16. If they can get it in a day the extra cost may be worth it if it’s urgent. I have to adjust my equipment repairs and use around a regular “real job” schedule so if something breaks it puts me behind no matter how fast I can get parts.
  17. I had a similar experience with ordering a Kuhn disc mower part from my Deere dealer. The Kuhn part I had to order a five pack even though it only takes one. However, Kuhn makes that same mower as a Deere model. I could buy just one part as a JD part number and it was less than a single Kuhn part. It came in a JD bag and the part itself was stamped “Kuhn”
  18. So you needed it yesterday and drive to the dealer who then had to order it and then you had to wait and then drive back again to find out they charged you a minimum order fee? And that’s faster than just ordering it yourself? If you added some filters or grease or something to the order to make it $50 total would you still get the $40 charge?
  19. I’d just order from one of the online dealers like greenpartstore or greenfarmparts or even Amazon and have it at my door in two days and not mess around with driving around to the store.
  20. The electric Corvette is on its way. There is already a Wrangler plug in hybrid EV. Lots of torque for crawling with electric motors.
  21. Depends on the company and how they run their fleet. If they’re fully depreciated they got their money’s worth from it. Either drive it into the ground u til it’s scrap or sell it off as easily as possible.
  22. LTL local runs would be ideal for electric semi. Resale isn’t really important if the truck is depreciated.
  23. An autonomous diesel powered tractor seems more realistic in the near future than electric powered.
  24. Well it’s hard to find reliable help anymore. These autonomous tractors can just keep on working with one person managing a few at a time.

    Hopefully that gets you a long ways and for a long time.
