  1. You might want to check their funding sources, the state does not give any money to fire departments. FEMA has a grant program once a year but other than that all money for any department in NYS comes from taxes or donations and 2% money. I was fire chief for 15 years and the state has never given one penny to any fire department that I know. While fundraisers might be a good community event without a doubt I think you will find that calls for service are much greater than they were 20 years ago and training requirements are also much greater. Its alot to ask guys to go on calls, give up a couple nights a week training then spend their weekend flipping pancakes to buy their own equipment.
  2. I agree with him, you give your time for free, shouldn’t have to raise money for your equipment. Cops don’t do pancake breakfasts to get bulletproof vests. A new ladder is well over 1 million dollars now, thats alot of pancakes. Times have changed
  3. I remember HD well, he was a frequent poster on the old board. Condolences to his family. Rest in peace HD

    Me either, thats kinda why I wanted one. A’s, Super A’s and 140’s everywhere, 100’s you don’t see as often. I have never seen one with the “ factory” optioned tach either..and it works.

    So a new addition to the family, not sure why as I really don’t need another project but have always liked the little 100’s and they are easier to haul to shows than the big ones. This one is a 55 and very straight, not a dent anywhere, everything works as it should, runs very smooth no smoke,couple minor leaks is all. Needs a couple new rear rims as tires are loaded and seep around valve stems. Is pretty well optioned with fast hitch and original tach, Rockford heavy duty clutch, nice set of cultivators. Not real familiar with these little guys so am sure will have questions for you guys as I go.
  12. Sad deal, I saw it on the news. Looked like he had a small tedder behind. It is dangerous out on the roads, driver inattention, everyone in a hurry. I log ALOT of road miles on big equipment and you always want to be on your toes as alot of people have no idea how close they come to dying out on these roads
  13. Mansfield Oh, great show, great grounds and lots of 1206’s!!

    Cover crop

    I understand you got it cheap, but cheap on the front end may not be cheap on the back end with increased herbicide costs and yield drag. Just something to consider. If you want a cheap cover, oats are the best just to get a cover out there. Winter kill, cheap, easy to establish. If you are determined to use the wheat, terminate it early.
  15. Was planning on going but with the weather having us a month behind and have to go out of town the following week for a doctors appointment we decided to cancel our reservations. Just have to much to do and the calendar says time is running out before the weather starts turning. Hopefully 2021 will be a better year
