  1. Saw this on C-list. Is this just the tractor without the mounted picker or some other odd variant?
  2. Get something with Quinclorac in it for the original weed.
  3. Did you crack all 6 nuts on the injector lines at the injectors to bleed the air out while cranking?
  4. Just run it and make sure you have extra fuel filters on hand.
  5. I'd say it started about 10 years ago and is rare not to see it in auctions now. It discouraged me from going to many.
  6. Sweet home Alabama lynyard skynyrd Mississippi Queen Mountain Don't look back Boston Rocky Mountain way Joe Walsh Hold on loosely 38 special If you can't blow your speakers on these, you need more amps!
  7. Nice catch on the crawler. M's like that still sell for $2500+ around here.
  8. It's been very localized around here in Central Virginia. We didn't get any measurable rain May, June and July and the hay fields were toast. But 30 miles north or south everything looked fine. East to west was probably a little wider. I wouldn't be surprised if WVA was similar. But, in the last couple of weeks we have had over 12" so everything is greening back up. For people in the worst areas there won't be enough time to make all the hay they normally would have.
  9. We have an all white one that has been sighted around my work shop for the last 5 years or so. Last year she was seen with several all white little ones in tow. I've caught a few in the hav a heart trap, but so far, haven't been sprayed when releasing them. I killed one that was obviously sick. It looked terrible and was walking in circles. Mr. Shovel cleaned that one up.
  10. And his sister could really care less.
  11. Not much of a pillow, but it isn't getting lost and no one is taking it from him while he's taking a nap. This Collie cracks me up.
  12. We had a 3.3 on a leaf collector that was hard mounted. The high frequency vibration literally sawed the fenders, radiator support and exhaust in two if it was run over about 2200 rpm. We have the same motor on a Vermeer chipper that is mounted on rubber isolators. It has sawed little things like the air cleaner bracket and started some cracks in the frame, but has been much better. It will be interesting to see what experience you have with it in a tractor.
  13. When I worked for the Deere dealership I was amazed at the number of long haul truckers that had a dog with them. The ones with little dogs would put them on the flatbed once we had unloaded it, and they would run around while the driver was filling out paper work. All the dogs seemed very content with that lifestyle🐕
  14. That's been going on for a while. In 1986 when I was 25 and 4 years out of college and unemployed, I applied for a job as a partsman for a CASE dealership. My sole qualification was that I had always had an interest in equipment and had worked on my own lawn mower and a few cars and trucks. They hired me on the spot for 8$/hr and I thought I was rich.
  15. I have the old Echo 11' version without a harness. I had a hard time with it before I fell on my shoulder, probably couldn't use it at all now. I bought it to limb up all the trees along the fence line of the pasture so I wouldn't have to duck or get smacked in the face when using the tractor there. It worked great for that.
  16. Looks to me like she is trying to figure out what flavor kolache you ate just before using the drill🤠
  17. My hat is off to you, keeping that truck in your state, in that condition. !!!!
  18. My brother in law had a '70 GMC with a 396 that I used to borrow in the late '70's to move my stuff back and forth to college. He used it as a truck until it literally rotted to pieces. Never caused him much mechanical trouble, though.
  19. This is why the electric coop here partnered with a fiber company. They allow the fiber cable to be put on their poles and you pay for it along with your electric bill. So, if you have electricity, you have fiber. The landline telephone company jumped on the same bandwagon to try and keep customers like me who will jump as soon as the Coop service is available. Having dealt with the same telephone company the last 30 years, they pretty much exhausted any goodwill I might have had for them.
  20. Used to see those all the time around here, but it's been a while now. I worked on a few that were still mowing, even though every part of the woods mower was worn out years before.
  21. All the counties around here will have a fiber optic option through either the telephone or the electric company very soon. We tried Hughesnet for a month and it wasn't worth having.
