  1. Calls on Cell Phone

    Scammers consider the fines for breaking the do not call list to be just a cost of doing business. Besides, how many of them stay on the line long enough for you to get their info to turn them in? And I suspect they are all just shell companies doing the calling, therefore if they get busted just shut it down and start a different named company to start again with.
  2. 656 weight bracket holes water tank?

    My cousin ran a drum of acid on his 1466 for years baling hay and never had trouble. You should be just fine.
  3. 806 with 2450 loader

    Tipping issue aside, a narrow front rides rough. I wouldn't want to be driving through pasture/woods to pile brush bouncing a loader on a narrow front.
  4. Will I be committing sacrilege?

    That's where ours were split as well
  5. Will I be committing sacrilege?

    We had a set that was made into a split set. It appeared to have been broken, perhaps by a big shear? If you have one, a band saw would remove the least iron and give you a clean edge. I think you will need spacers because the inside of the circle isn't big enough for the 15's hub. I would think an inch or so would do.
  6. I might need a new battery

    I had one blow up on me while charging my 656. Thankfully my face was out of the explosion path. The clothes I wore that day were fine, but a newer pair of wranglers I wore when I took the battery to get replaced got ruined!
  7. Tires and Rims

    I think the 9.5 will look ok with 34 rears. And I like the 10.00-16 with 38 rears. But you can determine whether you like them once you get the rears swapped and go from there.
  8. Tires and Rims

    Like has been said you won't gain diddly putting 34's on the 756 height wise. But that is certainly a good size for that tractor. I love 16.9's on a 6 or 7, but it is cheaper to use the more common size of 18.4. A 16.9x38 is only slightly taller than an 18.4x34, so you don't gain much there either. I think your 826 would be just right on 18.4x38 and you can buy step up rims to do it if you go that route. You could always start with new 18.4's on new rims with the 7 and switch them sometime if you choose.
  9. Older hybrid reliability?

    That's what I'm wondering about if the hybrids are good in the later years. It's easy to find information about the new ones, but nobody really does reviews on older cars!
  10. Older hybrid reliability?

    My wife is looking for something that gets better gas mileage than her Yukon, and Ford Fusion hybrids have struck her eye. But we would be looking at 5-8 year old cars. How are the hybrids holding up with some years on them? Are they needing new batteries by ten years old? Any other big problems to be aware of?
  11. JD 7000 planter

    Perhaps shorten them like a 6-row would use and drive your front tire on the mark instead of having it in the center?
  12. 766 gasser

    My 656 has the same 291 gas engine (not the original) and I use it every day all winter to feed cows. On extremely cold days I will plug it in just to save time getting it warmed up but it would start without it. The fast hitch from your 450 will not work on the 766, but the fast hitch implements will work on a 766 fast hitch.
  13. milk premiums

    I've never really understood having a volume premium. I get that it's cheaper to haul, but that should be reflected in the hauling charges- a farm shipping 10-20k pounds would have the same cost as me sending 3500 pounds, but cost per cwt would be more favorable.
  14. About drinking raw milk

    There are very real and serious risks to raw milk. You can do things to mitigate the risks, but you can never eliminate them. I've served our raw milk to all sorts of people without incident, but I have a clean and almost closed small herd.
  15. Big Roy

    Not so much experimental, more of a corporate slight of hand trick to throw JD off their game. lol
