  1. These old chisel plows were not built to handle corn residue, even the lower yielding corn from 50 years ago. But your post made we think about wheat. Where these machines able to go through the residue without plugging? Or was the straw baled or something prior to chisel plowing?
  2. I would need to look at my buyer's guides but I'm pretty sure they were making chisel plows prior to the #55. I don't remember the model number but were very similar to a #9 field cultivator, could even be equipped with clutch lift.
  3. 12" spacing? That sounds more like a dump rake than a chisel plow.😄 But I guess no different than the clearance of moldboard plows of the era. No wonder corn stalks needed to be chopped and disked before they could plow/chisel plow.
  4. Looks awesome, good job. I'd like to get a fast hitch #55 sometime.
  5. I don’t like Busch latte… I especially don’t like it with a JD copy track on the can.
  6. I don't think you'd have any issues with any 8' - 10' machine on a 966 or 1066. I have a MF 1328 8' that I put on my 656 hydro. I just cut odd pieces of grass but have never run out of power. I wouldn't want to cut alfalfa without a conditioner but it works fine for the little bit of grass hay I make for my calves.
  7. What is the reasoning/rational the agronomist gave for waiting on bean planting?
  8. Thank you for your service and those great pictures. I'm always amazed at how much is going on on the flight deck of those carriers. It amazes me how much goes on on a relatively small area.
  9. I haven't had it as often lately, but used to get that about once a year. It is very painful, but at least once you get antibiotics it always goes away quickly for me.
  10. The farm I lived on as a young kid had a barn like that with a round roof and laminated rafters. Unfortunately it went down in a wind storm a few years ago.
  11. I'm glad your Dad is able to be back at home, hopefully he will continue to make quick improvement. We were able to finally get the corn done this weekend. My Dad and brother have been doing strip till corn and no till beans for many years so don't get to do much tillage anymore. But this farm was tiled last fall so it was chisel plowed after tiling and then worked this spring to try and level off the tile ditches. I also have a video on my phone but will need to try and figure out how to post that.
  12. I'd even be happy with $1.59 gas.
